Blondie and I had a very busy weekend. Blondie represented B&B proudly at the Cupcakes Take the Cake Cupcakes for a Cause Bake Sale with her AWESOME s'mores cupcakes. Since we were at the Brooklyn Flea we couldn't resist the chance to check out this intriguing "Pizza Moto" a mobile brick oven "pizzeria"...
Apparently Pizza Moto is run by a guy named Dave who's a chef at Lunetta on Smith St.
And he built this brick oven by hand. That's pretty darn awesome.
When we arrived at Pizza Moto's table there was a bit of a line, but the ordering was quick and efficient--one line to place your order, one line to pick up. Pizza's were in and out of the oven in a flash.
The pizza was pretty good, too. Good tangy sauce. Fresh mozzarella. Thin crust. All in all as tasty margarita.
But tasty pizza from a mobile oven doesn't come cheap and at $9 for a personal pie that's maybe the size of two slices, it's definitely a splurge and maybe even $1 more expensive than the reported planned price one month ago when the truck made it's first appearance.
Lawman pointed out that $9 seems on par with the going rate for higher end personal pizzas in the city these days. Can anyone comment on this? I'm not really a serious consumer of higher end personal pizzas so I don't have much of a frame of reference for the pricing. Don't get me wrong, Pizza Moto makes a good pie, but in my book it's a little too dear for what you get. If this pizza were $7 or even $8, I'd be on board, but at $9, unless I was really aching for some 'za I'd probably pass. These are rough times...chip in with a few friends and you can buy a whole pizza at DiFara's!
