Pizza Luca dishes out the old school taste of Neapolitan pizza in an old school 1952 Chevy flatbed truck.

Dean Medico, the pizzaiolo and President of Pizza Luca, learned the art of French and Italian cooking at The International Culinary Center. In 2011, Dean took artistry in pizza on the road, taking his creations throughout the Tri-State Area. The company currently has two trucks serving pies which are made in the trucks themselves.

With a wood-burning oven installed on the flatbed of the truck, Pizza Luca creates hand-made personal pies using authentic Neapolitan technique and ingredients, such as Italy’s finest San Marzano tomatoes, Mozzarella di bufala (buffalo milk mozzerella) from Campana, and a dough from Medico’s own secret recipe.
