For $4, this deal gets you $9 worth of mobile pizza and drinks from the free-roaming SliceTruck Pizzeria. The SliceTruck, a wheeled pizza-making machine clad in stylish marinara-sauce red, is, like lightning and the Green Lantern, never quite in the same place twice. But it can smell hunger like a squid can ennui, and speeds toward what it scents. This deal is good for all apparitions of the SliceTruck except when it's beached for ticketed special events.
The SliceTruck serves up foldable thin and crisp cheese ($2.50) and pepperoni ($3) slices topped with grated parmesan and fresh basil, with an occasional special daily slice. Eighteen-inch whole pizzas also grace its menu, with a plain cheese edible frisbee starting at $15 and ready to top with a range of classic comestibles including olives, sausage, pineapple, and mushrooms (prices vary depending on topping).
Put your Internet stalking skills to good use tracking the rambling lovin' oven on Facebook and Twitter. From 4 p.m. to midnight Monday through Friday, the Slice Truck rolls around the general USC neighborhood. In addition to its placelessness, the SliceTruck also delivers ($7 minimum order).
Yelpers give SliceTruck 4 stars:
- Got another slice! This time, it was Hawaiian. Mmmm, this crust was even crunchier than the last time, and the ham was thick and juicy instead of thin and wimpy….I am in love with the Slice Truck.. – Misty O.
- Pizza is a personal choice…But I believe it is the best, and surprisingly tasty, gourmet pizza you'll ever eat off a food truck… – Lisa R.
- I must tell you all, I am not one to be frivolous with verbage; but SliceTruck's pizza is reminiscent of love. It made me consider switching pizza companies...like permanently... – oby o.
Cooks at SliceTruck Pizzeria age dough made with certified-organic Kamut flour for three days before baking, yielding crusts that are airy as well as gluten-free. They then crown each carefully crafted pie with premium toppings such as housemade sausage, hot cherry peppers, cremini mushrooms, and san marzano tomatoes. Since all SliceTruck’s crusts are vegan, it’s also easy to accommodate diets free of animal products—just order your pizza without cheese.
Besides pizza, the chefs also toss house salads with extra-virgin olive oil and pepperoncinis and bake chocolate-chip cookies in house to round out meals. Staffers dish out these and other dishes from a bright-orange food truck, a minimalist West LA storefront, or the back of the tame griffin, who makes all their free deliveries.
