Pizzeria comes in different shapes and sizes. But what sets Del Popolo apart is that it was a shipping container in its earlier avatar. The recycled shipping container now is a mobile Neapolitan pizza joint; it, however, has kept those haute elements of the shipping container intact.
The 20-foot shipping container went through recycling processes, before it was fitted on to a large truck. When San Francisco Noe Valley resident Jon Darsky started this new pizza joint, he was very concerned about the style factor.
This exceptional style is the creation of four designers, supported by Darsky’s passion for it. The owner worked as Flour + Water pizzaiolo before he went on to start a firm of his own.
The wood-fired oven used in this pizzeria is brought all the way from Naples. The oven, weighing 5,000 pound has got an elegant look to it.
One whole side of the shipping container has been cut off and fitted with framed glass doors, in order to make it viewable to the customers. This is housed on the second level. The lower level comprises the cashier.
