From New York to Paris to Tokyo, food truck culture has really taken off in recent years.

And as food truck fever takes the world by storm, Sydney foodies have quite literally hopped on the bandwagon.

One popular addition to the Sydney food truck scene goes by the name Happy As Larry.

Painted navy blue, this pop-up pizzeria takes the taste of traditional Napoli style wood fired pizza to the streets of Sydney.

Both inside and out, the Happy As Larry truck is an impressive sight to behold.

Measuring nine metres long and close to four metres high, the mobile pizza joint is built from a converted shipping container and equipped with an eco generator, which makes the truck self-sufficient and fully sustainable.

Inside, it has a top-notch commercial kitchen, complete with a customised 2.2-tonne, handcrafted, wood-fired oven from Naples.

Happy As Larry is the brainchild of three Aussie pizza-loving mates: Chris Lu, Adam Choker and Anthony Severino.

Decked out with neon lights and an integrated sound system, this Sydney pop up restaurant serves up more than authentic pizzas; they deliver a real experience.

Chris Lu says, “While our main focus is also on the food, we want to engage people over all five senses. From the moment you approach the truck – whether it be the theatre of the kitchen, the vibe of the music, or even the smell of the wood fire oven – the experience has already begun.”
