Last year Wroclaw went food truck crazy, with a dozen or so mobile eateries arriving on the scene almost completely out of the blue. One of the best of the bunch is Happy Little Truck, which specializes in making superb Italian style thin based pizza.
The challenge for these new enterprises inevitably comes in the winter, when eating outdoors obviously becomes an unattractive proposition. Some food trucks have shut down completely since the summer, while others such as Pasibus and Bratwursty have invested in their own premises. Happy Little Truck meanwhile, have found another solution to the winter cold thanks to a unique tie up with craft beer pub Marynka Piwo i Apertivo.
From Monday to Friday from 12.00 till late, the Happy Little Truck will be parked in Marynka's beer garden, where it is connected to the rear entrance via an airtight tent. This allows hungry pizza lovers to enjoy their meal from inside the warm and safe confines of Wroclaw Uncut's favourite craft beer pub.
Every weekday Happy Little Truck produce a 'pizza of the day' which can be bought for a paltry 10zl. On my visit this turned out to be the humble Margherita – the classic original pizza. With the no toppings to be had the taste buds inevitably hone in on the pizza's core ingredients, which in this case where put together wonderfully. The whole thing feels just like a pizza should – the base is light and reasonably crisp, while the tomatoes are juicy with a deliciously tangy acidity. The mozzarella cheese was top quality and the fresh basil finishes the whole thing off with its wonderful aroma. It's fair to say I've never been so excited about a Margherita before!
If you are looking for something more adventurous, you can off course choose one of the many other pizzas on Happy Little Truck's menu (some of which are photographed below).
Needless to say, the pizza is definitely right up their with Piec Na Szewskiej and Pizza Love Panne, which of course makes it one of Wroclaw's finest. Unlike the other two venues however, Marynka has an alcohol license, allowing you to have a nice glass of wine or craft beer with your meal. The seating area is also bigger than at the two aforementioned venues. Once you weigh in those factors, it would be no overstatement to say this is the best place to eat pizza in Wroclaw. Buon Appetito!
