Pizza really is the best fast food available. The problem is that it isn’t always fast and it isn’t always made from the best ingredients. If you can find a place that makes it well, they have the right ingredients and the right equipment. In the Boston area (Boston’s South End, Cambridge, Somerville), we have a few family favorites. Our local pizza of choice is Armando’s in Cambridge. My son gets the cheese pizza and my husband and I like that too or we’ll throw on some spinach and eggplant. My daughter prefers their Sicilian slice which has a nice spongy crust and garlic flavour. Then there’s the pizza bowling pizza, which is “so juicy” according to Henry. Flatbread Pizza at Sacco Bowl in Somerville is one of his favorites because of the garlic oil drizzled over it. My daughter and I are regulars at PICCO because I loved the charred crust and we are both addicted to their Caesar salad. Another pizza I really enjoyed was Posto‘s pizza, but we don’t get to Davis Square that often. Recently, though Henry and I were invited to track down Posto Mobile, Posto’s, food truck and I’ve been chasing it down like a pup chasing a mail truck ever since.
Posto Mobile is primarily pizza, but they always have a salad, drinks (of course), and dessert that is worth saving room for. There is one more little thing that you absolutely must get…but I’ll get to that in a minute.
Part of what I love about the Posto pizza is that the dough is thin, but the crust has a nice, soft chewiness to it, as a crust really should have.
And now that for that secret ingredient! Posto has a little bit of liquid gold that you absolutely must ask for.
Their chili oil comes in a small, ready-to-go container and is perfect for drizzling over your pizza to add a little extra spice and smokiness. The oil is not so hot that it takes away from the flavor of the pizza and the extra smokiness is a great surprise.
If you’ve got extra crust, give it a little dunk in the oil for a perfect finishing bite.

As noted above, I was a guest of Posto Mobile, but all opinions and subsequent Posto Mobile cravings are my own.
