Allen and Jonathan's Story

 

 

Hungry J's Pizza

Hungry J's Pizza is not your average pizza joint. Though we serve up each slice real quick, we’re anything but fast food. Our dough is hand tossed and every pie is made from scratch using only the finest ingredients -- and we do it all right from our truck. We’ve got a whole roster of other delicious bites, too, including subs, pastas, and salads.

How to make Food Truck Thursdays an earth-friendlier event:
