Yep, there's a pizza oven in there.

“A pizza oven? In a truck?” This is the response that I got from several co-workers and friends when told them about the Pizza People food truck. I guess you have to see it to believe it, or taste it to believe it.

Pizza People features artisan pizzas made from fresh, local ingredients — even the crust and the sauce are made from scratch. I’ve had the Popeye (spinach, tomatoes, and cheese) and the Fun Guy (mushrooms, arugula and truffle oil — get it fun guy”¦mushrooms”¦fungi?) and both left a lasting impression — this pizza is good. I also loved that they had healthy drink options like coconut water, and strawberry lemonade sweetened with stevia.

Good news for vegans and those on a gluten-free diet — Pizza People has options for you as well.

The Pizza People food truck is a regular at Food Truck Friday at the Downtown Phoenix Public Market. You can find out where else in Phoenix they will be by following them on Facebook and Twitter.

The food truck craze has exploded in Phoenix with many opportunities to eat from these rolling gourmet “restaurants.” We’ve eaten from many of the food trucks throughout Phoenix and wanted to highlight them individually for you. You can find the food trucks on a regular basis at the Downtown Phoenix Public Market  on Wednesday evenings from 4-8pm, Fridays from 11am — 1:30pm and on Saturdays from 8am — 1pm. At the North Central Farmers’ Market on Saturdays from 9am — 2pm, Fridays at The Phoenix New Times building at  12th Street/Jefferson from 11am — 2pm, and the Third Thursday of the Month at the Whole Foods Raintree location from 11:30am — 1pm. There are always many more opportunities that you can find by following your favorite truck individually or by following the Phoenix Street Coalition. Bon Appétit!
