Re-Mobilizing the Shipping Container in the Name of Pizza

Here at Architizer, architecture and pizza go hand in hand. We are firm believers that nothing complements a Margherita pie like a sprinkle of red pepper flakes and a heavy-handed dose of eccentric design. But when we first caught wind of San Francisco’s Del Popolo pizza truck, a readapted shipping container equipped with a wood-burning oven and set on the wheels of a Freightliner truck, our minds were thoroughly blown (or charred to blistery, thin-crusted perfection?). The project is the brainchild of Jon Darsky, a seasoned Bay Area pizzaiolo who grew tired of searching for the perfect spot for his pizzeria. The Brooklyn Law School graduate, who found a calling in spinning Neapolitan pies after not passing the California State Bar, decided to take matters into his own hands, outfitting a trans-Atlantic shipping container in true Pimp-My-Ride style with a glass-enclosed exhibition kitchen and, the heart of the operation, a 5,000-pound Stefano Ferrara oven imported from Naples. The bespoke food truck is a thing of beauty, making us feel a tinge more blasé about the shipping container garden at Brooklyn’s Roberta’s, the holy grail of hipster pizzerias. And from the look of it, Del Popolo’s pies will not disappoint. Is it lunch yet?
