pitruco pizza


Pitruco Pizza is a food truck whose specialty is wood fired, brick oven pizza. Despite their debut in September 2011, I just recently got to try them during my lunch break. One of the tastiest things I’ve eaten in the past couple weeks is their Radicchio pizza.


The Radicchio pizza comes with braised radicchio, wild mushrooms, mozzarella, parmesan, and balsamic. I really enjoyed the sweetness of the balsamic contrasting the bitterness of the radicchio. The crust of the pizza was thin, crisp, and delicious. The four slice personal sized pizzas are definitely enough to be split with another, though if you’re hungry, it’ll serve as a filling meal.

I actually had a radicchio pizza for lunch yesterday, too. It was great! Looking forward to trying the other meat varieties after Easter this Sunday.

jules thin crust


Work took me to Jenkintown yesterday and I came across Jules Thin Crust for lunch. It’s located in the Noble Square shopping center, off of 611 and close to Noble station on the SEPTA Regional Rail. Jules Thin Crust is a local chain, with two other locations in Doylestown and Newtown, which serves thin crust “flatbread” pizzas featuring local and organic ingredients.


I went with a slice each of veggie pizzas #12 and #14. #12 has organic edamame, ricotta, local organic goat cheese, caramelized onions, mint, lemon vinaigrette, and mozzarella. On the #14 was mushrooms, portobello mushrooms, organic tomato sauce, arugula, and mozzarella. The slices were less than $3 each and weren’t bad. The crust was thin and fairly crisp, though I do think that the slices could have used a little extra zing and crisp.

Jules Thin Crust had several different varieties of pizza. They have about 15 veggie pies and 8 pies with meat. Some of the meat pies looked good. If I find myself back in the area after Easter I’ll definitely look into trying some of them.
