Ann Arbor Wood Fire Pizza Cart

Nick Wilkinson A2 Pizza Pi Wood Fired Pizza

Nick Wilkinson, an Ann Arbor native started A2 Pizza Pi (as in the symbol for pi), a wood fired pizza food cart. You can find him manning the wood fire oven at Mark’s Carts.(directions)

This the second season for the Mark’s Carts and the first season for A2 pizza Pi.

Nick got help starting his business by running a successful Kickstarter.com fund raiser raising over $10,000. I contributed to his fundraiser, which include a pizza for my support.

Nick strives for locally sourced organic ingredients for his pizza including local flour, sausage, fresh herbs and veggies.

He features seven different pizza, but will customize.

The pizza I tried was a Margarita with the addition of sausage.

The heat of the oven gets around 700-800 degrees, which makes for a thin crust pizza cooked in a little over a minute.

An interested feature to his oven is that he uses wood, which has been infected by the Emerald Ash Borer. The wood can not be taken outside of the area and it can only be disposed of by burning.

A Vegan Lunch Cart and a Dream

Ann Arbor Food

The Lunchroom Food Cart Ann Arbor

The Lunchroom by Phillis Engelbert and Joel Panozzo is an up and coming Ann Arbor Food Cart featuring an all vegan menu with breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack offerings.

Their cart will be located behind Downtown Home and Garden in late April or Early May.

Until then, they are keeping busy with their fundraising efforts to help raise money to build their custom food cart.

They have launched a successful Kick-Starter Campaign. Kick-starter is an online fundraiser website, which allows people to create an online fundraiser and it makes it really easy to receive donations for a creative project. Transactions are secure and run through amazon.com

They have also hosted several fundraiser events featuring their vegan offerings.

They told me that the cart they are building will cost around $8000. So far they have raised around $4000 and they are hoping to be able to receive enough large and small donations on kickstarter to make their dream a reality.

Any amount of donation will be much appreciated and it will help get a small local food start-up off the ground.

Here are some of their offerings.
