Classic Pizza in Delaware: Chef Matthew Hans Drives his Truck with a Wood-Fired Oven to the Newark Co-op Farmers Market and Rodney Square in Wilmington

Pizza from a 1956 flatbed Ford? Uh-huh. And it’s good. Chef Matthew Hans drives his ton of fun to various locations and farmers’ markets throughout Delaware, throws on the emergency brake, then dishes out some good slices. His pies, baked fresh in a wood-fired oven on the truck, feature whatever organic toppings he buys that day. At the Newark Co-op Farmers Market, he might top a pie with marinated eggplant or fennel. At Rodney Square, the bank crowd comes out for pepperoni, peppers, onions and sausage, or a white pizza with garlic-roasted olive oil, ricotta cheese and spinach. We’re not sure if this is what Henry Ford had in mind when he invented the flatbed Ford, but ingenuity like Hans’ might have made him smile. Consider friending Hans on Facebook.
