Our Story

Dave Sclarow loved metal shop and home ec so much that he started Pizza Moto. In 2008 he welded himself a mobile pizza oven and went into business for himself and his friends. Over the last 6 years ‘Moto has made it’s name in the 5 boroughs for serving bubbly char-kissed Neaopolitan style pizza from our hand-made mobile ovens.

Pizza Moto is a multifaceted gem: you can find our Mobile Oven Pop-Ups at markets and events throughout the warmer months, our Slice Shop at the Berg’n Beer Hall 7 days a week, and our new restaurant, Pizza Moto @ John Grace Bakery*, on the border between Red Hook and Carroll Gardens.

Pizzaphiles

Pizza Moto is a collection of scrappy cooks, designers, artists, and tinkerers. We are inspired by all parts of the baking and making process, and constantly striving to understand our tools, the cooking traditions they define, and the cuisine they produce. Once our first oven rattled apart on the cobbled streets of Brooklyn, we designed a steal arch model that withstands abuse and cooks bubbly char-kissed pizza all the while.

Cool Hunting spent a few days with Dave and his former welding instructor Ryan O'Connor. It resulted in this video where you can watch them grind, bend, cut and weld a monster steel oven from scratch.
