Forget biofuels, hybrid engines and LPG cars, Tony Crolla, owner of La Favorita and the Vittoria restaurants, has gone one better with his  log-fuelled pizza van. Apparently, Tony was wondering how he could recreate the taste of his restaurant’s pizza at outdoors events when he hit on the idea of installing a one tonne, log-fired pizza oven in a customised van. The full story is in the Evening News here.

The van launches at the Taste of Edinburgh festival this weekend. Knightrider, eat your heart out.

Gusto, Bella, Centotre and Zanzero are all Edinburgh 5pm members who also know their way around a pizza oven.
