A Quick Slice From The Pizza Truck

The word “veloce” in Italian means quick. Just like the word, the mobile pizza setup, Pizza Veloche, provides fresh food for catered events.

 

Instead of making the pizza inside and serving through a window, counters are set up in front of the truck, and the pizzas are made and served while the customers are watching.

 

The owner of Pizza Veloche is also the owner of Gino’s Trattoria and Pizzeria in New Hyde Park. Owner Alfredo Vitolo wanted to expand his business with unique off-premise catering.

 

Gino’s has other locations, in Port Washington and Bayside. 

 

“The food is truly authentic Italian Naples style pizza,” said Vitolo.

 

Pizza Veloche makes for a memorable experience that everybody loves, according to Vitolo. At events, Pizza Veloche likes to entertain guests.

 

“We throw the pizza up in the air, and have Italian music playing in the background,” said Vitolo.

 

The truck is equipped with a brick oven for on-location pizza cooking. Pizza Veloche also provides Italian ice and gelato stations, as well as an espresso machine.

 

The idea came to Vitolo in 2013, and he quickly made it into a reality.

 

“We purchased the truck in February 2014, and we had it ready by April,“ said Vitolo.

 

The truck used for Pizza Veloche is a restored International Harvester KB-5 from 1948. Wooden panels of the truck give it a rustic and traditional look, as if guests are eating out of a pizza truck from the 1940s.

 

Pizza Veloche has made appearances at kid parties, 50th birthday parties, anniversaries, wine tasting parties, and the Harborfest in Port Washington. It will also be making an appearance at the Cellini Lodge

Italian festival in New Hyde Park from Aug. 13 to 17.

 

Customers are able to set the menu for their event. They can choose from a variety of gourmet ingredients and toppings, or even make up their own style of pizza.

 

“People invent their own toppings and we make it for them,” said Vitolo. 

 

This pizza truck will travel anywhere from Montauk to Connecticut,. 

 

“Our crew is very warm and friendly, so when we come to people’s homes we make them feel very comfortable,” said Vitolo. 

 

Gino’s Trattoria and Pizzeria is at 1113 Jericho Tpke. in New Hyde park. The phone number is 516-488-1366.

Commuting to work via train is exasperating and expensive—add on the stress of parking and the threat of tickets, it becomes madness.

 

“There’s a lot of parking if you get here early enough,” commuter Michelle Vernant said. “If you think you’re getting a spot after 8:30 a.m., think again.”

 

At the New Hyde Park Train Station, there are 340 commuter parking spaces that line the train station from New Hyde Park Road to Covert Avenue.

In his first duty as new commander of G&E Linder VFW Post 8031, U.S. Air Force veteran Mario Obertis fired a three-volley salute to honor local military veterans who had fallen in battle or are otherwise deceased as part of the color guard during last Tuesday’s Veterans Day observance in New Hyde Park.

 

“I’m always proud to be a commander of the veterans group. I feel like it’s giving back,” said Obertis, a Korean War era veteran who had previously served as post commander from 2001 through 2005.

Despite a disappointing playoff loss against the Wantagh Warriors, Sewanhaka Indians Head Coach George Kasimatis, is pleased with his football team’s season. 

“I’m proud of my team,” he said. “But you are never satisfied unless you win the whole thing.”

 

The Indians faced a big challenge this year, moving up into Conference II left them as the new kids on the block, unfamiliar with the teams they would be going against. 

Kasimatis will have a tall task next year replacing graduating seniors, which made up most of his starting lineup. Kasimatis said most of the offensive line, such as Danny Gianotti, Adrian Gonzalez and Louis Segarra III, and the defensive line, such as Justin Alexandre, Peter LaTorre and Peter Militano are seniors, many of which have started multiple years for him. 

The fifth seeded Sewanhaka Indians traveled to Wantagh to take on the fourth seeded Wantagh Warriors on Friday, Nov. 7 for its opening playoff game. 

 

The Indians opened the game sluggish on offense, and were held in check throughout the first quarter. The Indians defense did its best to keep the team within striking distance, but field position form shaky special teams play, put them in a difficult position. 

 

Warriors running back Dylan Beckwith, was able to punch in a 15-yard touchdown run, to give the Warriors a one score lead after the first quarter.
