The South Bend Tribune in Indiana reports on the Rolling Stonebaker pizza truck, a decommissioned and retrofitted 1949 Studebaker fire truck.

Andrea Georgian and Jim Chaddock of Beverly Shores, Indiana, own the truck. As the article points out, she wanted a pizzeria and he wanted a truck. This was their (brilliant) compromise.

"The truck is definitely a big draw, especially the older men. And they can't believe the oven's inside the truck," she says, adding that the siren gets plenty of use.

And inside the oven, hungry diners will find classic pizzas such as Margherita, sausage and pepperoni, but also original combinations that Georgian and Chaddock have been experimenting with.

There's the Potato Head, with red potato, red onion, ricotta cheese, roasted garlic and thyme. The Purple Pig features pulled pork and tangy purple slaw and has been a pretty big hit, Georgian says.
