Pizza Della Via a Napoli

[Fotografia: Roberto Sietsema] La prima cosa che voglio parlare di come componente di questo nuovo accordo è pizza della via a Napoli. I residenti di Napoli realmente stanno entrando ultimamente nella pizza della via. Ciò è perché stanno prendendo sulla tendenza dell'alimento della via degli Stati Uniti.

A Napoli, la gente mangia soltanto la pizza. Quello è che cosa ha dovuto lavorare con, in modo da lo... More

L.A.: The SliceTruck

[Photographs: Slice Truck] While pizza from a truck predates the current food-truck craze, the type of pizza you'd most often see come from a kitchen on wheels seemed to be the Sicilian slices. In L.A., a city not really known for pizza, the new SliceTruck mobile vendor looks like it's turning out some thin, thin pizzas I'd eat in a flash. I mean, look at that pepperoni pie up there. If seeing is believing, call me Mickey Dolenz. The SliceTruck roams the streets of L.A. As is de rigueur with street-fooders these days, use Twitter to follow their schedule... More

Goin' Mobile: In Which I Finally Get My Ass Out to Pizza Moto at the Brooklyn Flea

Clockwise from top left: Dave Sclarow builds the pies at a hectic pace before passing them to Pizza Moto's stickwoman. The menu lists Margherita and white pies, with the option to top either with pepperoni. My Margherita pie, fresh from the oven; I brought it into nearby Empire–Fulton Ferry Park to wolf it down at the tree-shaded picnic tables there.

The Hot Truck Address: Parks at 635 Stewart Avenue, Ithaca NY 14850, on Cornell University's West Campus [map] Phone: 607-273-1111 Photographs by Adam Kuban It was late last Friday evening and I was on the phone with my girlfriend's sister after having recently arrived in Ithaca, New York, for a weekend visit. "Drive up to campus, and ask any student. Everybody knows where it is," Sis said. "We'll meet you there in 15 minutes." Armed with that tip and a simple map drawn by the motel desk clerk, we set out on the snowy streets hoping the pavement had... More
