Mayor Michael Bloomberg and oil man turned natural gas booster T. Boone Pickens introduced a new kind of food truck Thursday — one that they say is more environmentally friendly than the gas-guzzlers that choke city streets.

Basically they described it as a chance to make the mobile food industry cleaner and greener. Neopolitan Express Pizza Truck cooks pizzas that are cooked for about 90 secs in an oven that's at 900 degrees.

New York City is getting its first food truck fully powered by compressed natural gas. Proponents say it's easier on the environment.
