Pizza Loco bring a completely unique mobile dining experience to events across Yorkshire and the North of England…
Neapolitan wood-fired pizza, cooked in the firebox of our Pizza Locomotive!
We cater for events of all sizes, and love a festival, wedding or corporate event!
We can sling our pizza out at around 70pph (pizzas per hour) so we can cope with fast-paced larger volume events.

A Very Unusual Firebox…
Pizza Loco’s design is nothing quite like anything else, and makes for a formidable focal point at any event.
Based on a heavy duty twin-axle cattle trailer, it’s been radically adapted and re-modelled to capture the spirit of the early pioneers of the steam age.
Inside the cab it has a firebox, just like a real steam train. Instead of a coal furnace though, our trailer has been fitted with a traditional wood-burning oven based on a centuries-old Italian design.
The super-insulated oven is designed to heat up to its optimum baking temperature of around 550°C in a couple of hours. Once it’s fired up it can turn out more than one perfectly crisp, thin, and bubbly-crusted pizza a minute.
Our Green Credentials
We take our environmental responsibilities seriously and this is reflected in our corporate philosophy.
As much as possible, we source our ingredients from farmers, growers, and independent businesses close to our base in order to keep food miles to a minimum.
We grow a variety of herbs and vegetables in our own little market garden, and any meat that we use is always organic and ethically farmed.
We keep packaging to a minimum and normally we serve our pizzas on plates made from re-cycled sugar cane, but we can also offer boxes made from recycled card.
Our oven is fuelled by carbon-neutral timber, harvested from managed woodland in West Yorkshire where new trees are planted to replace those cut down.
“Italian on the bottom, Yorkshire on’t top!”
A firey combination of stubborn Neapolitan methods, and punchy Yorkshire flavours.
We use Naples own Caputo, the don of all flours to achieve that sweet, super-light and airy crust, just as you would find in Napoli.
As for the sauce, we haven’t found a tomato that comes close to our sweet, fleshy friend the D.O.P. San Marzano. It’s so good that we add nothing more than sea salt when crushing them down to make our passata.
Pair that with a glug of peppery extra virgin olive oil, aged Parmigiano, and fresh basil. Anything added after that is just a bonus!
We offer a wide range of Vegetarian food, with Vegan and Gluten-Free options easily incorporated on request.
To inject a bit of Yorkshire into the mix, we make good use of award-winning local cheeses from deep in the dales, right through to Leeds suburbia!
If that’s not Yorkshire enough for you, we have also devised our own blend of chorizo, which is handmade especially for us by a farm shop on the North Yorkshire border.
We hope you’ll all agree that the end result is a winning combination of age old Italian methods, and supreme Yorkshire produce.

Pizza Loco Named in Top 5 Pizzas in Leeds by Leeds Confidential.
We’re buzzing with this! There are some well-established dough slingers in Leeds, so to be featured in the top 5 alongside people we’ve been inspired by from the start means a lot.
We pride ourselves on our dough, and fine-tuning our recipe has become something of an obsession over the past couple of years tbh. Long may it continue too!
Special shout out to The Dough Dungeon, where the magic happens!
“Loco’s dough is some of the most satisfyingly blistered, blackened in the business.” (Thom Archer, Leeds Confidential)
Catch us at Trinity Kitchen for 8 weeks as of 20th March!

Pizza Loco to feature in upcoming recipe book.
There’s a new cookery book on the festive horizon, and the creators have kindly asked us to come up with two signature recipes to feature in it!
The book will contain stories and recipes from a collective of foodies across the UK. It will be available to buy in Waterstones, online, and directly from us (ideal Christmas pressie IMO).
That’s all for now, but we’ll update you with more info on release dates etc as soon as we’re given the go ahead.
We’re happy to present our new website. There will be more updates coming soon. Check back soon.
