Picking a wedding caterer can be unnecessarily stressful. Trying to decide between an unending selection of hors d’oeuvres, sides and main entrees to please every one of your guests is nearly impossible. Many couples lately have been steering away from the traditional plated and buffet-style catering options and are instead opting for a more relaxed and fun catering style for their wedding. If you’re looking for a unique and fun way to serve food at your wedding, try a food truck!

Look no further than the newest food truck on the Atlanta and Athens scenes: The Atlanta Pizza Truck. The truck is run by Alessio Iacco, an Italian pizza chef who moved to the United States from Naples, Italy when he was 17 years old. He has been working in the restaurant business since then and has over ten years of experience working as a pizza chef. Iacco started his own catering company, The Local Pizzaiolo, when he moved to Atlanta around two years ago. He currently does consulting on how to open a pizzeria and participates in different restaurant trade shows across the country. He also offers private pizza making lessons.

The Atlanta Pizza Truck specializes in making Napoli-style pizza, meaning each of their pizzas is individually handcrafted and cooked in a wood burning oven. In addition to making pizzas, the food truck can also make specialty salads, appetizers, pasta, steaks, desserts and more. They will cater to all of your event needs, including vegetarian options!

The truck itself is also unique. Only four feet by nine feet, the truck can fit practically anywhere (hint: at your reception!!!) and doesn’t take up much space. It can navigate private roads, but for a wedding in Athens, Iacco can easily transport it by trailer. The truck contains a wood fire oven that is able to cook pizzas up to 900 degrees in just 60 seconds, as well as a sink and a refrigerator to keep all food ingredients cool. The truck is modeled after the three-wheeled European Ape scooters that are versatile enough to navigate the narrow streets of Italy. Bringing a little taste of Italy to your wedding in Athens, GA is a great way to make your wedding stand out!

The Atlanta Pizza Truck has catered at several food festivals, including Oktoberfest Atlanta, Taste of Chamblee, and soon Taste of Atlanta. While the business is only a few weeks old, their weekends are already booking up with weddings, so be sure to contact them soon! 

The Atlanta Pizza Truck is sleek and classy while still adding a little fun to your wedding. You and your guests will find it refreshing and different, without sacrificing any of the class and taste of traditional wedding food. Besides, who doesn’t love classic Italian pizza?
