Scott Tremonti, a former Pizzeria Bianco devotee now behind the catering outfit Urban Oven, is formally launching a food truck version of his pizza concept in L.A. tomorrow. The pizzaiolo's signature pizzas involve buffalo mozzarella margheritas with San Marzano tomatoes, fennel sausage on a pie with Calabrian chiles, and a gruyere pizza with Yukon spuds, sea salt, and leeks, using a sourdough crust forged through an oven burning almond wood into traditional, thin Neapolitan pizza purity.

A few more unexpected toppings include mole sausage, Thai shrimp, grapes, bacon, and poblano peppers, while the chef swears to seasonal-shaping and peerless produce.

Tremonti's schedule will be trackable through Facebook and Twitter, and he provides a chalkboard surface for all budding artists to doodle on the truck as they wait. See Urban Oven's full menu below.
