It's big, it's red and it's quite possibly the largest food truck to hit the road: the Fox Pizza Bus is a double-decker bus first built in Scotland, then shipped across the pond to grace the streets of Los Angeles.
It was stripped, gutted and transformed into the first-ever food truck with a built-in wood-fire oven and potential seating on the second level.
“We’re hoping to open our upstairs dining deck by this July or August so we can host family-style dinners, pig roasts, and use it as our own private event space in the future,’ said Jordan Hieshetter, co-owner.
Hieshetter and Chef Mike Fox developed the business in 2009 and officially introduced the bus to the road this April.
Fox focuses on fresh wood-fired oven baked pizzas cooked on site in the 600-degree oven with ingredients that are sustainable and local.
“We try to source everything within 100 or 200 miles,” Fox said. “Everything is picked up fresh from the farmer’s market a couple times a week.”
One of their most unique pizzas is the Brunch Pizza. It's served with ricotta and mozzarella cheeses, heirloom tomatoes, charred onions topped with a fried egg.
Just like the 244 other food trucks that hit the roads of Los Angeles, hungry Angelenos can follow them on Twitter @FoxPizzaBus.
