Food Truck Road Trip: A Cookbook Chapter Preview
Chef Scott Tremonti blames his single-minded pursuit of wood-fired pizza perfection on a pie from Pizzeria Bianco in Phoenix, Arizona. “I had good pizza before, but when you had Chris Bianco’s pizza, it was almost like a religious experience,” he says. “That was my first experience with a wood-fired oven.” Having had an authentic, artisanal, Napoli-style pizza, Scott couldn’t go back.

The Urban Oven Delivers Wood-Fired Pizza to The Suddenly Busy Bloc Complex
Here’s a first look at The Urban Oven, a casual new pizza joint nestled into Downtown mega-complex The Bloc. The big property has been in the works for years, slowly coming along in phases as the retail and restaurant side build up simultaneously. Now the Bloc’s best new lunch option is here to act as an anchor tenant, alongside the still-to-come Alamo Drafthouse.

First Thoughts: The Urban Oven
Like that beautiful girl that sat in front of you in geometry class but then became invisible when the class bell rang, The Urban Oven had eluded me for months. I would check Twitter almost on a daily basis to locate the wood-fire pizza slinging gourmet food truck, yet the stars never seemed to align for the two of us. I would go to the wrong place or miss it by a few minutes or they would change their whereabouts, it just did not work out. Finally, as of Friday, it did. And I am really, really glad we finally hooked up.
