The Well Kneaded Wagon (Firebread pizza)

The grub: “Firebread” pizzas baked in a clay wood-fired oven in the back of a van. The standard menu has a choice of pesto, garlic or tomato sauce with seasonal organic combos for toppings. The “Fresh” is beetroot, goat’s cheese and spinach, the “Fiery” mushrooms, chorizo, chillies and thyme and there are also sweet firebreads with a Maple syrup base and apple, cinnamon and walnuts on top. Too good for words. At the risk of sounding like someone on MasterChef, their secret is in the base – sourdough cooked for 2 minutes which while satisfyingly crunchy still retains a good chewy bite.

The vibe: It’s not hard to spot the tomato and mozzarella coloured VW van which attracts whole teams of nearby office workers. Turnaround time is 2 mins on average – from order to mouth – but in those precious seconds you get to see the dough being stretched, toppings thrown on and the whole lot blasted in a hot clay oven.

The story: The WKW has only been up and running since last autumn after its keen firebread bakers, Bridget and Bryony (one an ex youth group worker, the other keen to set up a cafe) found the van in the Alps and had it restored. They pretty much learned on the job but their long-term vision is to get people in the local community running more stalls with the help of the WKW.

The tab: From £5/pizza, 50p/extra veg, £1/extra meat topping. Buy 1 savoury, get a sweet one for half price

    It’s not a VW, it’s a Citroen H-van.
