Cammareri Bros Prosciutto Rolls Available on Midtown Pizza Truck
Papa Perrone’s, the pizza truck that popped up on 55th btw. Mad+Park last year as an alternative to Jiannetto’s, is starting to pick up a little steam. They distinguished themselves nicely with their delicious artichoke pie, and now in addition to grandma slices, Sicilian rice balls, and their eggplant/meatball/chicken parm subs, they are offering prosciutto rolls from Cammareri Bros- the famous Brooklyn bread bakery (that was in the movie Moonstruck.)
Check it out after the jump…
It’s not a great photo, but you kind of get the idea. Deliciously oily bread, studded with cheese and chunks of prosciutto. What could be bad about that? And for only $1.50 it makes a great snack (or ‘fat guy’ add on appetizer to a couple of slices or a sandwich.)
Another new offering kind of sums up what this truck is all about; the Pablo slice: a regular grandma slice, topped with fresh mozzarella and one of their homemade meatballs (named after a customer who constantly requested the combo.) The guy who runs Papa Perrone’s is super friendly, and will pretty much do whatever you ask.
Also available sporadically as a special: prosciutto rice balls… and we hear they are working on a sandwich for the Midtown Lunch Sandwich Challenge that may or may not include garlic bread as a vehicle. I think I speak for everyone when I say… nice.
