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.
