Smoke billowing from a roving pizza oven is a singularly enchanting thing. Remember Red Wagon? They're now a charming brick-and-mortar in south Minneapolis doing a bang up business including thrice weekly brunches. So now there's room for another wagon. Wild Earth makes a maple-infused sourdough crust in a handmade oven using farmers' market booty for toppings, naturally.

“If you build it, they will come.” Dan Wilder says drily, raising his eyebrows in a way that suggests he really knows what he’s talking about. Three years ago, fueled by a childhood passion for making pizzas with his father, Dan spent a month building a wood fired oven in his Midtown Phillips backyard.

The boundaries of what constitutes a food truck will also begin to blur, starting with the launch of WildEarth WoodFired Mobile Pizza Bakery—not a food truck, but a pizza oven on wheels. As the options diversify, Twin Citians are sure to gobble them up.


Another wood-fire pizza truck making Neopolitan-style hand-stretched pizzas, WildEarth is committed to using locally sourced ingredients whenever possible and even puts a touch of local maple syrup in their dough to make an extra crispy crust that's just a little bit sweet. Expect farm-to-table toppings including ramps, goat cheese, and artisan sausage.


Though it's not exactly a truck, WildEarth WoodFired Mobile Pizza Bakery, will be launching as early as May 31 for festivals, farmer's markets, and private events. The mobile eatery was funded by a Kickstarter campaign which raised $9,000. Wilder will feature locally-sourced ingredients on his maple sourdough pizza crusts.
