My co-worker recommended that I try the wood-fired pizza sandwiches from Via Tevere. I didn’t even know that there was such a thing so I was quite curious! I had never investigated this food truck before since I assumed they sold pizza but turns out it’s all wood-fired sandwiches.
They offer four different types of sandwiches and they only accept cash! These “saltimbocca” sandwiches are cooked in a 900 degree woodfire oven and that gives the bread the same qualities as a pizza crust.
I chose the Proscuitto/Arugula sandwich with proscuitto crudo, fior di latte, tomato, arugula and basil mayo. The bread tasted exactly like a pizza crust! It was softer than I expected yet sufficiently chewy with a nice char on the outside. There was quite a bit of arugula and it kept falling out everywhere or I’m just a messy eater… The sandwich is simple yet it has a light quality to it. Definitely much lighter than going to Meat and Bread! Although if you’re really hungry, it may not be as filling for you.
