Slice Kelly Bone 2 comments

I got my first whiff of the The Urban Oven last year at Chris Bianco's booth at LA Loves Alex's Lemonade. There, Scott Tremonti worked side by side with Chris, for what I later learned was the first time ever. Chris began offering guidance to Scott, and his pizzas have been consistently improving ever since. More

Running a successful food truck with limited refrigeration, climate control, and space is a feat in itself. Now imagine introducing an 800 degree fire-breathing oven into the equation.

Le Castellet, France: A Wood-Fired Pizza Truck in Provence

Slice Natasha Pickowicz 17 comments

In Provence, France, buried in the hills of village Le Castellet, one pizza truck is making mouthwatering wood-fired oven pies. The crust, blended with hazelnut flour and baked into a nubby cracker-like crunch, is bested only by the sublime, decadent toppings, like creme fraiche, Reblochon cheese, and juicy lardons. More

This truck is making pizza that would hold its own in a brick-and-mortar joint. This is not just "good for a truck." It is great pizza, period. If you live near Edison or have a commute that takes you anywhere near, this is destination pizza, folks. More

Just had to share this shot that came across the Slice desk earlier this week (thanks, TXCraig1!). We had a mock up of the truck's design early on, and then an instagram photo more recently, but this one really captures the beauty of this truck. More

Have you seen this? It's the Del Popolo pizza truck, the new project from former Flour + Water pizzaman Jon Darsky. Looks like it paid a visit the other day to Flour + Water, which posted the photo above to Instagram. That rig is lookin' serious. More

San Francisco's Mobile Pizza Truck Population Doubles

Slice Meredith Smith 12 comments

Casey's Pizza Truck was San Francisco's first mobile pizza truck, but now flour + water's original pizzaiolo Jon Darsky appears to have his own roaming pizzeria project in the works. And as reported by Tablehopper, that project has turned out to be a

deconstructed transatlantic shipping container that's 20' long and 8' wide into a mobile unit that will house a 5,000-pound, Stefano Ferrara wood-burning oven that's welded to the floor with a steel pedestal. Not only that, but the exhibition kitchen is enclosed by three glass doors, so you'll be able to watch your pizza being made. Yeah, this is gonna be fun."

Casey's Pizza Truck Hits the Road

Slice Meredith Smith 8 comments

Pop-up locations and rigged pizza decks, and tricky pizza-cooking conditions are old hat for Casey Crynes, who is taking pizza to the streets of San Francisco today in his rad new pizza truck. Casey has made pies in modified Webers about town, set up shop in bars with a counter-top Baker's Pride Electrical oven, as well as made due with whatever home oven challenges he encountered during catered pizza parties in clients houses. It's only natural that he would be the pioneer behind the city's first pizza truck. More

Veraci in Seattle: Skip the Restaurant, Hit the Carts

Slice Adam Lindsley 10 comments

What started in 2004 as a small mobile oven nicknamed "Terracottababy" and rapidly expanded to include a brick-and-mortar restaurant and an empire of farmer's market carts, Veraci is a success story Seattleites love to call their own. Sadly, there is a definite discrepancy between the feverish hype surrounding Veraci and the actual product they're serving. More

Jiannetto's Pizza Truck was parked outside P.S. 29 on Henry Street in Brooklyn over the weekend, and its grandma slice called my name. It's a thinnish crust, topped with a dollop of plum tomato sauce, shredded mozzarella, and fresh basil. More

Beverly Shores, Indiana: The Rolling Stonebaker Pizza Fire Truck

Slice Adam Kuban 3 comments

[Photograph: The Rolling Stonebaker] The South Bend Tribune in Indiana reports on the Rolling Stonebaker pizza truck, a decommissioned and retrofitted 1949 Studebaker fire truck. Andrea Georgian and Jim Chaddock of Beverly Shores, Indiana, own the truck. As the article points out, she wanted a pizzeria and he wanted a truck. This was their (brilliant) compromise. "The truck is definitely a big draw, especially the older men. And they can't believe the oven's inside the truck," she says, adding that the siren gets plenty of use. And inside the oven, hungry diners will find classic pizzas such as Margherita,... More

Slice Adam Kuban 9 comments

Rejoice, Long Island expats and Long Islanders who commute into NYC for work: Eddie's of New Hyde Park is bringing its renowned bar pizza to Manhattan. In May, Eddie's will dispatch a pizza truck to rumble along the city's not-so-mean streets. How do we know this? Twitter, of course. As Ed Levine wrote about Eddie's in Pizza: A Slice of Heaven: I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked Eddie's pizza, which features a crust not much thicker than one of those pieces of cardboard sandwiched inside my laundered shirts. Though the crust is cracker-thin, it's surprisingly pliant. You... More
