In New York, it's hard to stand out, especially if you're a pizza. Two Bros, Two Boots, Famous Ray's, Original Famous Ray's, Ray's Pizza... they all serve slices of crust and sauce and cheese, not all too different from each other. While we may have our favorites, a slice is a slice is a slice.
Neopolitan Express, however, differentiates itself with both its product and its delivery. We visited the food truck when it was parked at 53rd and Park--a popular lunch truck spot for the Midtown working crowd. The sleek design and the clean interior of the truck immediately stood out to me, and the menu struck me as creative and perhaps healthier than the average pizza.
This mobile pizzeria is, in fact, very good for you, not only in taste and food, but also in its clean-energy use. The trucks produce the lowest carbon, nitrogen and sulfur emissions of any other food truck in the country, by using natural gas and solar energy from solar panels on the roof of the truch. The specialty Italian designed pizza ovens are handmade in Italy and reach the optimal pizza cooking temperature of 900 degrees, solely via electricity. Ingredients are organic and natural, sourced locally or from Italy, making an combining the promotion of global cuisine and premium ingredients while maintining the mission of creating sustainable products.
