San Francisco is loaded with top-notch food trucks, but with so many options, making a decision can be daunting. We put on our pizza-faces and tossed together the five best food trucks to satisfy your cravings. Now that’s amore.
Del Popolo tops many a foodies’ “favorites” list and it’s not hard to figure out why—this literal food truck excels when it comes to serving up delectable and gloriously-crusted wood-fired pizzas. Plus, the $180,000 truck itself is a genuinely jaw-dropping sight. Do your best to get your hands on their Margherita pizza sooner than later. You’ll be savoring every last bite, guaranteed.
For the latest info on where they’ll be stationed, follow Del Popolo on Twitter.
Psst! They also have a brick-and-mortar location at 855 Bush Street that offers a selection of amazing pastas and noteworthy wines and beers.
Since opening their wheeled doors in 2011, Casey’s Pizza has been wowing people all over town with their organic, olive oil-drizzled, New York-inspired pizzas. Their “old world classic pies” will create an instant obsession. Of course, what really earned Casey’s Pizza such a glowing reputation is their rotating menu of rotating “special pies.”
The truck can be found in the Financial District at lunchtime on weekdays and in Hayes Valley on Octavia Street (next to Ritual Coffee) on the weekends. You can follow them on Twitter for location and menu updates.
Carmel Pizza Company
Located at 2826 Jones Street, Carmel Pizza Company is not your traditional food truck. It has a small but enchanting patio area where patrons can chow down on their fare in a peaceful garden. The pizzas are all neapolitan-style and wood-fired, lending a bit of artisan flair to what might otherwise just be really good pizza.
We highly recommend their Tutte Verdure 18, which features an array of veggies and mouth-watering mozzarella.
Mozzeria Mobile Pizzeria
Mozzeria is a Mission-based pizzeria that elevated their game a few years ago by creating a trolley-style mobile pizzeria. They make their way around the Bay Area, so you might want to check out their schedule prior to penciling a trip.
It’s also worth noting that the owners and many of the servers here are deaf. They use ASL to communicate, which is really cool.
Okay, we’ll admit that PizzaHacker isn’t technically a food truck, but it is a “mobile pizza kitchen”. That said, once you take a bite of anything that originates from this joint’s oven, you will completely understand why we felt compelled to include it, technicalities be damned. Try their “Get A Room” for one of the sexiest bites of pizza you’ll ever enjoy.
Stop by 3299 Mission Street any day of the week (except Monday) from 5 PM-10 PM to discover first-hand why people can’t stop raving about this place.
