Earlier this week I was exiting an event in San Francisco’s Potrero Hill neighborhood when I bumped into PizzaHacker and his amazing Franken-Webber portable wood burning pizza oven.

Drive-by guerilla street food is some of the best food out there. Just glancing at the prep table I noticed the choicest ingredients. Fresh basil, buffalo mozzarella, smoked salt? Further investigation finds that PizzaHacker uses sauce made exclusively from organic heirloom tomatoes and hand kneads his naturally leavened sourdough for what some say rivals the most trendy pizza establishments in the area.

Part of what makes this open air culinary spectacle work is the heavily modded Webber 22.5″ grill that’s been outfitted with fireproof blocks and a domed top comprised of refactory cement and perlite that’s been molded in the original Webber top. Using chunks of wood and charcoal, the Franken-Webber quickly reaches 1000F (the ideal temperature for cooking authentic Neopolitan-style pizza).

Here’s a video from PizzaHacker’s site:
