Nomad Pizza

I just read about this new endeavor from one of the founders of Thomas Sweet in the U.S. 1 paper. The article can be found here http://www.princetoninfo.com/200706/70627c01.html and the Nomad Pizza website here http://www.nomadpizzaco.com. The pizza looks incredible. Unfortunately, it is only available for catering and related events, but what a unique way to cater a party. Not inexpensive at about $30/person for salad, pizza and dessert, but it seems to be of very high quality and, as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. If anyone has had the opportunity to try the pizza, please post. The thought of the pizza truck in my backyard has me itching to throw a party.

    Yep, tried the pizza twice now... WOW!!! Tom Grim (of Thomas Sweet chocolate and ice cream fame) and his Nomad Pizza partner Stalin Bedon surely had a major hit on their hands. The pizza, by anyone's measure, is just fabulous. The dough (which I think is prepared slowly over a period of 24 hours or so) is a treat in itself... and, the myriad choice of really fresh ingredients, sparingly used over hand brushed olive oil and garlic mixture really makes this a unique and exceptionally fine and tasty treat. Just loved it (even the anchovies)! I think part of the trick is the brick oven which I think hits 900 degrees F or more. The pizza cooks very fast, creating just the right outside and inner consistency in the dough. Definitely A+++

      Nomad Pizza is as good as it gets. I had the good fortune of goint to the ThomasSweetCinema at the Hopewell train station on the 23rd & Nomadpizzaco was there. Amazing to watch, handmade crust, fresh toppings they slide it into the wood oven and magically in a couple of minutes out comes the best pizza i have ever tasted.
      I read the story in US 1 and at the end it noted that Nomad Pizza will be at the Jazams Harry Potter Party in Princeton on July 20th & at the slow food event at Hopewell valley winery in Aug so you should be able to try it at either of those events.

        Nomad Pizza is the best I've had in the area, and the truck is just so fun. As of last week, they now have a small eatery open on Broad Street in Hopewell.
