The Nomad truck is built on a vintage 1949 REO Speedwagon.
Nomad's Truck-Based Oven
Nomad Pizza Co. originally started as a mobile pizza-catering business; the owners opened a brick-and-mortar Nomad a couple months ago in Hopewell, New Jersey.
The founder of Princeton's Thomas Sweet Ice Cream & Chocolate, Grim started Nomad after taking inspiration from a trip to Italy's Amalfi coast.
The pepperoni is extra-large and very thin, so it crisps up nicely in the oven.
This was one of the favorite pies at our table. Shiitake mushroom and garlic.
A fine-crumble loose sausage with a bit of a spicy kick to it. The first round of sausage pies were sausage-only. A second round of sausage pies had caramelized onion on them; the sweetness of the onion was a nice counterpoint to the heat of the sausage.
The Nomad Upskirt
And like many a pizzeria before it, Nomad comes in for its pizza upskirt shot. The crust at Nomad is fairly thin and more chewy than crisp. Fans of crispness may want to look elsewhere, as founder Tom Grim makes pizzas here more along the traditional Neapolitan lines (Grim and his crew trained in Naples before opening the pizza truck).
At the Oven
Nomad's Stalin Bedon and Tom Grim and their two pizzamen kept the pies coming out like fire. The oven is standard size, but you'd think they had a gigantic one (or even two of them) for the speed at which the pizzas arrived at table.
