La Pizza Fritta: New Food Truck in Stamford Serving up Italian Street Fare

31 Jul

Stamford’s newest food truck, La Pizza Fritta! All photo from their Facebook page.

Matt and Liz Terenzio were at their yearly family picnic which consisted of five families and about 200 people.  Year after year, the favorite food at the picnics was the Italian classic:  pizza fritta.  If you’re wondering, that’s simply means fried pizza.  But, look, we know that fried pizza might seem simple but it’s one of the best things in the entire world.  They thought about it for a while and decided that this would be a perfect thing to build a food truck around.  And now we have La Pizza Fritta, Stamford’s newest food truck run by Matt, Liz, and other family members!

The Plain Fritta…om nom nom.

Although they only started recently, they already have a big fan base and have almost 300 likes on Facebook…more than people at their family picnic!  Right now they’re stationed on Bell Street and the plan is to find a permanent spot somewhere in Stamford.  Staying in Stamford is ideal for them because Matt’s uncle had a few clubs in the downtown area that served up family style Italian food and they want to keep their ties to the community alive.

Now, onto the food!  When we asked Matt and Liz what the most popular items have been they told us the Plain Fritta with marinara and the Italian Hot dog.  Intrigued?  Yes, you should be.  Let’s go through the menu:

Fried Italian Hot Dog! Aww snap that looks great.

Plain Fritta:  Your choice of Marinara and Shredded Pecorino Romano or Powdered Sugar, $6

Giambotta Fritta:  Topped with stewed Tomatoes, Peppers, Onions, Zucchini, $8

Stuffed Fritta:  Mozzarella, Ricotta, Shredded Pecorino & Marinara, $7

Stuffed Fritta with Giambotta:  Mozzarella, Ricotta, Stewed Tomatoes, Peppers, Onions & Zucchini, $8

Stuffed Fritta Completa:  Mozzarella, Ricotta, Napoli Salami, Ciccioli (Pork Cracklings), $9

Stuffed Fritta of the Day:  Right now it’s meatball, but who knows what awesome combo they’ll come up with? $8

Fried Italian Hot Dog:  Two hot dogs, topped with peppers, onions and potatoes and deep fried in a pizza dough, $8

    Matt and Liz, thank you so much for serving pizza fritta at my grandson’s birthday party. Congratulations to Matt and Liz. Everyone loved your food, the truck, the music and the aroma of fried pizza dough. Yummy. For the first time in a long time I was able to sit down with family and enjoy one of our favorite foods, pizza fritta. Several people had the Italian style hot dog, they couldn’t stop talking about it. Definitely an A+ party. See you soon,
