Like many new food trucks on the NYC scene, Eddie's is a moving target. Follow @eddiespizzany on Twitter for locations. On Friday, it was parked on Lexington Avenue and 27th Street. I ended up getting an Eddie's Special ($10, with meatballs, pepperoni, sausage, onions, green peppers, and mushrooms) and a plain bar pie ($7).
Cooked to Order
There are four small Cecilware ovens in the truck that are used not for reheating but for actually cooking pizzas built up on-site.
OK. The Eddie's Special was supposed to include mushrooms, but I saw no sign of them on my pie. I'm not going to hold it against them, as they're were fairly harried, but just sayin'.
No, I'm not trying to warm my hand over the pizza. It's here for scale. Actually, the thinness of the pies means they cool off pretty darn quick. You really have to eat this pizza right away, so it's probably a good idea to visit Eddie's Pizza Truck when it's parked near a park or public space where you can sit down and eat right away.
Here's a 10-inch bar pie fresh out of the oven. Eddie's also offers a large size that was more like 14 inches in diameter.
To the left of the cashier is an assortment of condiments to shake on your pizzas. For the most part, they'll be redundant as the sauce is pretty much spiked with the standard "Italian herb mix."
Inexplicably, there was a small basket of lip balm sticks out on the truck's small counter strip. No word on whether it was pizza-flavored.
