Del Popolo

So for the last few years my friend Ilana has been telling me about how her brother, a former law student moved out to SF and was working on opening a pizza truck. Every time she brought it up I was like oh yeah yeah cool, just thinking great all we need is another mediocre food truck in the world. It just so happens Ilana’s brother is Jon Darsky and his pizza truck is Del Popolo one of the most interesting new culinary additions to the Bay Area food scene in the past year. Jon earned his pizzaiolo chops and title at Flour + Water another SF Italian restaurant specializing in pasta and Neapolitan style pies. Not only does the design and fabrication of Jon’s truck set him apart, but the style of pizza he creates(Neapolitan) is the most specific and surprisingly enough regulated type of pie in existence. The 5,000-pound wood-burning oven can get up to almost 1000 degrees fahrenheit and cook a pizza in almost a minute at such high temps. Next time I am in the area Del Popolo is going to be a required stop.
