'Pizza Moto' on Serious Eats

Help PizzaMoto Settle in Red Hook with a Turn of the Century Oven

We fell hard and fast for PizzaMoto's mobile wood-fired pies back in 2009. But mobile ovens can be as tricky to find as they are to operate and maintain, so we were pretty pumped to learn that the PizzaMoto team is getting ready to open their very first stationary pizzeria this fall. And they want your help raising the $50,000 they need to restore the turn of the century oven in their new Red Hook location. More

New York Times Talks to Dave Sclarow of Pizza Moto

I mean, you look at the photo of that oven, and it looks more like a low-slung little heap of bricks than a serious wood-fired pizza oven. But this nice profile in the New York Times today reveals that the owner, Dave Sclarow, has some serious pizza cred behind him: "Mr. Sclarow, 34, learned his pizza craft at Franny’s, in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, and by backpacking through Italy."...

Brownstoner The Brooklyn Flea, the Sunday hipster flea market in Fort Greene, will be home to a new food vendor this weekend. The blog Brownstoner, whose proprietor helps run the market, reports that a chef named "Dave" has built a mobile wood-fired pizza oven and will debut it this weekend at one of the food stalls there.
