Since hitting the scene last year, Casey's Pizza has grown from a street-side hobby to a full-time gig. You may have noticed mobile pizza is, apparently, the new black; so owner Casey Crynes's plan to unleash the city's first mobile pizza truck should shake things up. Adding to the firsts, he's wrapping the truck in reclaimed sustainable wood. It was only a matter of time, right? El Monte Catering—who designed Japa Curry's wheels—is helping with the build-out. The mobile pizza truck will house a classic gas-fired Marsal deck oven just like the one inside Delfina. It can hit 850 degrees as easy as, well, pie.
Sometime in the middle of August, Casey's Pizza truck will grace a TBD FiDi location for lunch and Off the Grid's Haight St. location on Thursday nights. Crynes is also focusing on independent parking spots in Hayes Valley, the Mission, the South Bay and East Bay, but nothing's solid as of yet. Once he gets rolling, the plan is to stick with the Thursday pop-up at Vinyl. The idea of an eventual restaurant, built around the truck as the kitchen, has been floated. As is often the case with these things, Twitter and Facebook remain great places to look out for updates.
