FINANCIAL DISTRICT — An eco-friendly pizza truck has added a taste of luxury to its menu for its new brick-and-mortar shop on Wall Street.

Neapolitan Express, which launched its latest pizzeria inside the Trump Building at 40 Wall Street on Wednesday, is serving up a black-truffle laden personal pie — that will cost $50.

The special pie, called the “Il Toro di Wall Street” — which means “The Bull of Wall Street” — will include an entire freshly shaved Urbani black truffle, imported from Italy, over a truffle-infused creamy burrata.

Owner Max Crespo said the idea for the pricey pie came from some advice he was given by other pizza connoisseurs. “The thought was ‘if you’re going to open a pizzeria on Wall Street, you might as well give them a Wall Street type pizza,’” he said.

The pizzeria will also offer its regular selection of freshly baked gourmet individual pies for the more reasonable price of about $8 to $16.

The new location, which Crespo said is the first pizzeria ever on Wall Street, is slated to start serving up its pizza 24 hours a days beginning May 1. They’ll also offer 24-hour delivery, but not for the special truffle pizza.

“You can come in any time day or night and order the truffle pizza, so we can freshly shave an entire truffle on the pie,” Crespo said. “But you won’t be able to call the delivery guy and get it."

And that special pie will eventually get even pricier,when they use the rarer white truffle for the pie.

“We don’t know the pricing on that yet, but when its white truffle season, we’ll start using those,” Crespo said.

Neapolitan Express, which launched its eco-friendly food truck a few years ago, opened its first shop in Harlem in December. They have plans to open another location in Midtown East in the coming months, Crespo said.

The pizzeria will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. next week and continue to expand hours until they stay open all day. The “Il Toro di Wall Street” will be available starting next week.
