Motorino Mobile Pizza Comes To The Hamptons

Motorino Pizzeria Neapolitan is expanding to the Hamptons with a new custom-built wood-fired pizza trailer that is available for on-demand pizza parties. Motorino was founded in 2008 by Chef Mathieu Palombino and has since expanded to 15 locations worldwide in New York City, Hong Kong, Manila, Singapore, Dubai, and Kuala Lumpur.

Motorino Mobile offers an onsite pizza station with refrigeration, a tent, and lights. Pizza favorites are served with special additions highlighting local fare and bounty from the East End. It’s like having a pizzeria in your backyard and can be booked for an intimate gathering at your home, an outdoor wedding, or an end-of-summer party at your place of business.

“I’m excited to bring Motorino pizza to the East End this summer. This is one of the most beautiful places I’ve seen on Earth, and there’s no better place for a party…with pizza!” said Palombino.

A native of Belgium, Palombino spent much of his teenage years apprenticing in restaurant kitchens, learning the craft from seasoned professionals before working in several fine-dining restaurants. In 2000, Palombino moved to New York to further his classical French training while working under renowned chefs such as David Bouley and Laurent Tourondel. When the time came for Mathieu to open his own restaurant, he focused on the simple, wholesome, unpretentious food that he had been drawn to for years: pizza.

In the fall of 2008, he realized the goal of opening Motorino Pizza in Brooklyn, and a year later, he opened his first location in the East Village. Since its launch, Motorino has received several awards and accolades, including features in The Bib Gourmand Michelin Guide. It was awarded “Best Pizzeria in New York” by The New York Times, “Best Artisan Pie” by Time Out New York, and “Best New Pizza Joint in the City” by New York Magazine.

Motorino Mobile features Neapolitan-style pizzas topped with fresh, seasonal ingredients. Every event is customized and tailored to each customer’s needs. A selection of signature pizzas is available and includes a classic Margherita; the soppressata piccante, with tomato sauce, fior di latte mozzarella, spicy soppressata, Calabrian chilis, and fresh oregano leaves; the Brussels sprout pizza with fior di latte, smoked pancetta, brussels sprout leaves, garlic, and pecorino; and a cherrystone clam pie with fior di latte, freshly-shucked local clams, oreganata butter, and a lemon wedge. Vegan pizzas are available upon request.
