This Freightliner Turned Pizza Truck is a Visual Feast

Del Popolo, meaning “of the people,” is a food truck crafted from a massive Freightliner M2 turned mobile pizzeria. The diesel is a gourmet behemoth with glass windows covering an entire side of the truck, enabling passerby to gaze into the sleek interior. The inside features a 5,000 lb Stefano Ferrara brick oven and the smell of freshly-made dough baking fills the air as customers wait for a slice of the famous pizza.

The owner, Jon Darsky, hails from New York and sources his organic ingredients from small family-run Italian producers. Darksy shared his thoughts on his business venture with Visual News:

I enjoy process, in all its forms. Del Popolo is a natural extension of the one I started with when I first began making pizzas, just on a larger scale. In the end it’s still about finding fulfillment doing something simple yet creative that produces something tangible that I am proud of and can give to people.

To the author – remember the questions of basic journalism? Who, What, When, Where, Why? This is a nice, interesting article, but readers might have been interested to know WHERE THIS FRIGGIN’ THING RUNS!

Seriously? You think it is ok to just “tease” with an article and have people try to find out the most BASIC INFORMATION by doing searches? WTF is wrong with you?

This is Foodbeast. You get none of that. This isn’t “journalism”.

Not saying that it wouldn’t make sense for the “writers” here to give some basic information with their blurbs but don’t expect any decent writing here and you won’t be let down.

This is why I never actually link people to the Foodbeast website articles in FB or Twitter.
