Pizza is an imminently portable foodstuff. You can get it by the slice when you're on the go, or you can get it delivered to your house if you're feeling lazy. Sometimes the whole damn pizza restaurant comes to you, as is the case in the 12 mobile pizza vendors listed below. Some have wood burning ovens, some do not; some are in buses and some are in fire trucks; in the grand tradition of mobile food, many have punny names.

Made by a group of college students, this is not an actual pizza truck but rather an exact replica of the Pizza Planet truck from Pixar's Toy Story. Seriously exact: Pixar employees said the only issue with it was that it wasn't dirty enough.
