1,000 Pizzas Coming to Sandy-Ravaged Rockaway
A New Hampshire pizza maker is lending new meaning to pizza-to-go -- sending an oven truck and up to 1,000 pizzas to storm ravaged Rockaway Beach in Queens.
Brad Sterl, CEO of Pittsfield-based Rustic Crust, says a truck carrying a wood-fired pizza oven and American Flatbread frozen pizzas will arrive at the Belle Harbor School in Rockaway on Saturday.
Sterl says his truck and staff are prepared to feed hundreds of residents without power and cleanup volunteers.
Sandy destroyed 111 homes on the Rockaway peninsula, where most people two weeks later are still without power and debris is piled high.
The New Hampshire company makes Rustic Crust ready-made pizza crusts and all-natural American Flatbread pizzas.
