Del Popolo ist ‘ne mobile Pizzeria aus San Francisco, die mit einem italienischen Steinofen in einem Schiffcontainer untergebracht ist und auf einem Truck durch die Stadt fährt. , die Locations erfährt man per Twitter. Tolles Konzept und Food Trucks fehlen in Deutschland sowieso, ich will ‘ne Pizzeria auf Rädern, genau jetzt vor meiner Tür.
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.’

The five men who run [the Robertas] have grown it into something completely unique in American dining. The original space, which looks like a 1970s punk ski chalet, now meanders off into a second dining room, an Internet radio station, an outdoor tiki bar, and an expansive atrium that’s crowned with a rooftop garden where herbs and vegetables are grown. […] The Roberta’s crew is whip-smart and wild-eyed—almost as if the cast of Robert Altman’s M*A*S*H ran a pizza joint after the war—and are such hard partiers that a night out with them is equal to three nights out with average men. […]
You see, when I joined a small group of diners that secretly convened at Roberta’s to experience their one-off weed menu, I witnessed history. I saw expert chefs treating marijuana as a viable ingredient in terms of both taste and psychoactive effects. I saw weed claimed in the name of great food. I saw, hopefully, the beginning of the end for the pot brownie.
It was in Roberta’s new space, which is named Blanca (for the restaurant’s co-owner and head chef Carlo Mirarchi’s mother, just as Roberta’s proper was named for co-owner Chris Parachini’s mom), where we held our pot-eating odyssey. I arrived hours before the dinner’s start to observe the prep work. Upon stepping inside, I was hit by a soft wall of weed scent. Pizza chef Anthony Falco offered me a taste of his marijuana pesto sauce off the tip of a rubber spatula. It was intense. The pine-nutty oil of the pesto was deeply complemented by the undercurrent of marijuana, which is not a shy flavor. Within ten minutes, I felt a polite little buzz from that one lick.
Und hier noch das komplette Menu:
Planet Caravan: Tincture of gin, Earl Grey leaves, and the weed strain Hash Plant; egg whites; lemon juice; grapefruit bitters; simple syrup
The California Painkiller: Rum, pineapple puree, orange juice, cream of coconut infused with the strain Northern Lights
Long Island bluefish— smoked with the vaporized fumes of a strain called Sour Diesel—accompanied by weed-yogurt sauce, atop Roberta’s grown greens with marijuana-oil vinaigrette
Margherita: marijuananara sauce, buffalo mozzarella, “oregano”
Pot pesto: ricotta, prosciutto cotto, hemp-seed dough
Parsley cake made with weed butter, topped with a weed-brittle sheet; green-strawberry rhubarb gelato with weed cream

Ihr habt möglicherweise bereits Bilder von Pizza Huts Crown Crust Carnival-Ding gesehen, während dem sie Pizza mit Cheeseburger-Rand in Dubai verkaufen. Ihr habt aber sehr wahrscheinlich noch nicht den superamüsanten Verriss dieses Geschmacksverbrechens auf Serious Eats gelesen:
The first bite of the medium Cheeseburger Crown Crust Pizza (the ads feature the large size) instantly sent a train of goosebumps popping down my spine. This was a pizza experiment that had clearly gone completely, and horribly, wrong. While remotely resembling a pizza, it lacked the harmoniously cheesy and saucy spirit that any self-respecting pizza would have. What lay before me was…a Mutant Pizza.
As I drew close to the tip of my first slice, which in most normal cases, would be the cheesy, gooey pinnacle of a pizza, my mouth was suddenly assaulted with the merciless crunch of tasteless iceberg lettuce shreds. There may have been onions involved too, but when you’re fumbling through a patch of vegetables that have had the tasty life sucked out of them, you’d be hard-pressed to notice. Pizza Hut had gone so far as to even throw a token burger pickle on select slices, which in my bland-lettuce-inflicted opinion, was the only small voice of flavor crying out in a sea of insipidity. [...]
When severed from the rest of the pie, every slice became cheeseburger and pizza anarchy; tomato, lettuce and beef meteorites lay scattered like dismembered parts of a burger in a fast food wasteland. And no, there is no civilized way in which you can taste all elements of this cheeseburger pizza in one bite to have the ultimate all-encompassing fast food experience—unless you roll up each slice, from the tip to the crown patty crust, smack it down, and then hurl it into your mouth before the lettuce shreds and tomatoes fly away.
…I didn’t test the hypothesis.

How about a free pizza with that vasectomy? That’s the unusual deal being offered by Urology Associates of Cape Cod as a lighthearted way to raise awareness about the procedure and drum up business. Call it a pie for the sterile guy.
And there’s also a basketball tie-in. With March Madness — the NCAA basketball tournament — set to unfurl over the next few weeks, practice administrator Evan Cohen sees the vasectomy deal as a case of perfect timing. Men need a few days of recovery after a vasectomy, so what could be better than hanging out on the couch, watching some hoops and chowing down a free pizza? “It does actually come with one topping. Maybe you can put some meatballs on it,” joked Cohen.
Im Source Restaurant in San Francisco kriegt man seine Pizza in einem Pizza Ofen in einem riesigen Drachenkopf gebacken! Whoa! Bild gibts leider nicht größer und stammt aus einem Pizza-Review auf Serious Eats, ein weiteres (und noch kleineres) habe ich in einem Review auf Vegansaurus gefunden und hier ein großes, aber unglücklich aufgenommenes Foto auf Flickr. Ein Pizzaofen in einem Drachenkopf! EINEM DRACHENKOPF! Also: Mmmmm, Pizza!
how often do you get to watch a restaurant cook pizzas in an oven shaped like a giant dragon’s head? A gaping serpentine maw, which has been sculpted over a gas-fired Mugniani oven, is the first thing you see when you walk into the restaurant. Not surprisingly, given the way Source describes itself, the pizzas they pull from the belly of this beast defy easy categorization.
For those keeping score at home, Source’s dragon burns at about 610 degrees on the oven floor, cooking pies in around four minutes.

The company estimates the entire project will cost Y1.67 trillion – some £13.4 billion – of which Y560 billion (£4.5 billion) will be required to transport 70 tons of construction materials and pizza-making equipment to the moon aboard 15 rockets.
“We started thinking about this project last year, although we have not yet determined when the restaurant might open,” Tomohide Matsunaga, a spokesman for Domino’s, told The Daily Telegraph. The company also expects to be able to offer delivery services.
“In the future, we anticipate there will be many people living on the moon, astronauts who are working there and, in the future, citizens of the moon,” he said.

The History of the Pizza Box
Toller Artikel beim Atlantic von Alexis Madrigal über die technologische Entwicklung und die Geschichte des Pizza-Kartons. Alleine für den Begriff „pizza mobility solutions“ muss man diesen Artikel einfach lieben. Ich hab’ mir übrigens grade Pizza Salami, groß mit extra Käse, Paprika, Champignons, Knoblauch, Schinken, frischen Zwiebeln und rohem Ei bestellt und die kommt gleich in einer mobilen Pizza-Einheitslösung. Toll! Und: Whoa, hab’ ich jetzt einen Heißhunger auf Pizza, doh!
Since at least the 1800s, the bakers of Naples have had a solution for the problem of transporting pizza. They put hot pies into metal containers known as stufas and sent young touts into the streets to sell the food. The stufa was a round, vented tin or copper container with shelves that held the pizzas apart from one another.
While that might have worked for the streets of Naples — or other dense cities — it wasn’t going to work for the delivery business. There were two solutions to the problem for the exploding post-war American pizza market. First, there were regular old boxes, but those had a major defect. The moisture from the pizza would make the box all floppy. Oil could end up seeping easily through the bottom, too. Second, as described by Scott Weiner, who I would say is the undisputed expert on pizza mobility solutions, you could *bag* the pizza.
“In the 1940′s, lots of pizza purveyors offered take-out pies,” Weiner writes. “The pizza would sit on a stiff corrugated base, which could slide snugly into a large paper bag.”
The bag, while it kept heat in and allowed some moisture to escape, provided no protection for the pizza’s face. They worked OK for take-out, but what about delivery? It’s hard to transport more than one pie in a bag.
In the traditional story of the pizza box, Tom Monaghan’s pizza empire, Domino’s, developed the corrugated box in the early 1960s, marking a major advance in pizza technology. These wonder boxes could be stacked. They had vents. All around, the flatpacked, foldable corrugated pizza box was one of those small inventions that seem almost inevitable after someone comes up with it.
