Brick Oven + Metal Trailer = Mobile Pizza Delicousness

Just one of the benefits of doing custom metal work is the wide variety of cool projects that come our way. 
Our friend Russell is the master baker behind “Russell’s Breads“.  He makes beautiful artisan loaves like these:

Besides his yummy wood-fired breads and sweets, Russell can also make a delectable pizza (I salivate just thinking about them).  Recently he approached us about building a trailer for his new “mobile pizzeria” venture.  He is in the process of  building an oven that he will cart to farmers markets and other outdoor events.  The trailer not only has to serve as a sturdy transport vehicle for the oven, but also as a makeshift bakery away from home, with a design that allows for proper storage and efficient pizza-making. 

As luck would have it, Dave has experience building custom trailers back from his racing days when he built a few of his own to haul his dragsters from race to race.  So after lots of research, thinking and calculating, Dave came up with the following design:

From paper to the making, here are some work-in-progress shots:

And here is the beginning of Russell’s wood-fired oven. This is the molded foam over which a masonry substance will be laid.   

Now I leave you with some  luscious images from Russell’s Breads:

      Hi David,

      It was the baker, Russell, of Russell’s Bread who molded the foam and created the oven. You can contact him via his business facebook page: Let us know if you are interested in a trailer to go with it. :-)

      Thanks Steve,
      The client has a separate truck that he carries these things in and then he sets up his support kitchen at each locale. This gives him the flexibility to fit the trailer in smaller places.

      Hi Jen,

      We are not selling our plans for this trailer, but we’d be happy to build one for you. Let me know if you’re interested and we can talk further. I saw your facebook page and it looks like you have a delicious dessert business. Yummy! I especially like how you draw directly on the plate with your sauces. Plate as canvas!

      Thank you,
