Nomad Pizza’s historic food truck delivers smiles

When you want something that sparks both the appetite and a conversation, hire Nomad Pizza’s unique food truck. This isn’t your average white box truck. Instead, it’s a restored 1949 REO Speedwagon that just so happens to come equipped with a wood-fired brick oven. Thin-crust pizza that makes even the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Craig LaBan ooze with compliments is what Nomad does best, with two locations in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Hopewell, New Jersey. The truck is limited to events within 30 miles of Hopewell.

No sense throwing good money after bad.
