Cuisine: Italian food truck

The Via Tevere Neapolitan Express specializes in Neapolitan Saltimbocca, a “pizzeria sandwich”.  The ingredients for the sandwich, from the dough to the toppings are similar to Neapolitan pizza.  The bread is baked in a 900° woodfire oven where it takes on the characteristics of Pizza Napoletana—soft, yet charred with the classic fire-roasted spotting. The bread is then loaded with meats and cheeses, roasted again in the wood fire oven and finished with fresh tomato and crisp arugula.
