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.

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.
