If you asked Antonella Badalamenti about her husband, Giuseppe, she'd probably say that he's the san marzano tomato to her red sauce, the fresh mozzarella to her caprese salad. That's because they love their native Italian food almost as much as they love each other, which made starting the Chicago Pizza Boss Food Truck together a no-brainer.
These first-generation Americans are quite picky about their ingredients, importing most of them from Italy, including the parmesan, tomatoes, prosciutto, and soppressata, among others. Artisanal dough that's been proofed for 24 hours serves as the foundation for both their red and white Neapolitan pizzas. Like their forebears, Antonella and Giuseppe don't shy away from generous portions—the arancini are the size of tennis balls, and it's suggested that you eat the fresh-cut fries with a fork in order to scoop up the mountain of toppings.
