Running On Pizza
Jerrier's version of meals on wheels.
Many pizza joints deliver, but how many bring the whole oven along for the ride?
That's right, not just a warming bag, but a wood-burning pizza oven on wheels. Jay Jerrier (of Campania Pizza) is now officially on the go with Il Cane Rosso, a mobile oven. The former backyard cook and now pizza impresario plans to show it off to pizza fans on Wednesday evenings in March. His on the go experiment begins at 5:30 p.m.on March 4 at Times Ten Cellars and lasts until the dough runs out.
Jay and company use the contraption to produce Neapolitan-style pizza--the original stuff, with hand-stretched dough, San Marzano tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, house-made cheese in addtion to Mozzarella di Bufala...oh, and basil, of course. The oven is oak-fired to 900 degrees. And if it somehow causes a catastrophe, he can presumably wheel it away and be long gone.
