A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from Jeremy Epstein, the new owner of the Pizza Truck of NYC . He told me that he was the truck’s new owner, and that he would be upgrading the truck’s menu soon.
When the Pizza Truck of NYC came out last year, they were known for $1 slices. But it’s very difficult to make any money selling $1 slices.
Jeremy told me they were going to start serving sandwiches with bread from Sullivan St Bakery and meats from Faicco’s. I live a few blocks from Faicco’s, an old school Italian pork store on Bleecker St, and have been going there for a long time for meats and cheeses.
When I got to the truck, there were 3 sandwich choices – sweet & spicy sausage, meatball, and thick-cut pepperoni. We’ve bought Faicco’s sausages to cook at home many times, so the choice was pretty easy.
Today’s Lunch is a sweet & spicy sausage sandwich ($6) from the Pizza Truck of NYC.
