Del Popolo Pizza Truck, San Francisco
« on: June 14, 2013, 02:50:35 PM »
Started by Jon Darsky, formerly pizza master at Flour + Water here in SF. He makes his pizzas out of a 5000 lb Stefano Ferrara wood oven that reaches ~900F.

Best pizza, best crumb, most beautiful leoparding etc. I've had, other than Luzzo's NYC. I'll leave it to you guys to determine whether it's neapolitan, calpolitan, or what. Here are some photos of the oven, venue, and pies worth drooling over:

If you see Jon, please tell him I said hi. Tell him I'm taking good care of the oven.  ;D

No - I don't have a pizza truck. Just tell him "Craig says hi and is taking good care of the oven." He'll know exactly what it means.

Ahh I see! I thought you were making a joke about stealing Stefano because he (the oven) is so worth it. I will be sure to pass that message along to Jon next time I'm there  :D

Please comment on taste etc, but to me they are overdone (for my taste). Particularly no1 and the last one.

That is some extreme leoparding.  Very pretty.  The cheese doesn't look overly melted.  Looks good to me.  :drool:

I'd love to see an upskirt picture.  These scream of cold fermentation which leeds me to believe the bottom will be equally scorched.
