del popolo: mobile pizzeria

del popolo mobile pizzeria

del popolo is a mobile pizzeria housed in a twenty-foot transatlantic shipping container that’s been re-purposed and modified into a kitchen. a wall of glass doors exposes the interior, including the traditional italian-made wood-fired oven. information on where to find the pizzeria next can be found via del popolo’s twitter

‘owner jon darsky worked with four designers and spent 180,000 dollars to fit the container on to a heavy-duty delivery truck. the large oven which can reach temperatures of 800 degrees takes up nearly 1/3 of the space inside the container kitchen. it takes about 1 minute to cook each of the pizzas.’

using the traditional italian-made wood-fired oven…

it takes around one minute to cook a…

neapolitan style pizza.

  • SWEET!!! What a beautiful concept/design/execution!!

    Tom Herlihy says:
  • Good job!

  • They weren’t kidding when I asked for delivery.

    btp says:
  • Very cool project. It would be nice if a wooden table/bar could unfold from the inside of the doors. So people can stand and eat when they are opened up.

    JimmyB says:
  • selling or advertising from parked vehicles is against the law, everyone with driving lessons knows that, here

    JQYOT says:
  • JQYOT what a shame …. what a boring place that must be … quite the opposite here in melbourne with a thriving food-van culture.

    pete says:
  • JQYOT don’t lose hope, you can always emigrate.

    Tiago says:
  • superb , loved the way glass is used for the doors .
