David D’Amico was born and raised in Westchester but his roots derive from San Fratello, Sicily and Naples, Italy. The pizzaiolo takes bits and pieces of the cooking methods and ingredients he saw growing up from both sides of the family and twists them with modern ideas to create exciting new pizza. His inspiration for starting a pizza truck is for his love for food and pizza and how it tends to bring together family and friends. “There’s nothing more satisfying than serving something I have created and seeing people enjoy it. Watching my grandmothers cook was a magical experience. I learned that cooking with simplicity and using fresh ingredients is the secret to making amazing food. In my grandmother’s house food was available all day long and the motto was ‘ya gotta eat’.”
On board we have a gold tiled brick oven imported from Italy. The wood and gas burning oven makes for a delicious New York style thin crust pizza.
