Rosso Pizze Mobile Edition at Farmers Markets

Popular Rosso Pizzeria in Santa Rosa has a new mobile oven making pizzas to order at local farmers markets. I caught up with it last Saturday at the Santa Rosa farmers market at the Vets building. This was its third week.

The pizze and piadine are smaller, and priced lower, here than at the restaurant, and made with market ingredients. I ordered a Margherita and was told it would only take a couple minutes. Maybe it’s the influence of the fresh air and eating outdoors, but this was better than the three times I’ve been in the restaurant. Thinner crust, more even scorching, and not as thick a rim of dough around the edge. I did use my napkin to brush off some of the charcoalized blisters. The fresh mozzarella was cut thickly and didn’t quite melt all the way. But all in all it was very delicious and I was more than pleased with my $6 investment. I think I’ll order it with a fertile egg from Hector’s Honey next time.

Other wares are lemonade, fresh mozzarella, or pizza dough to take home.

Lastly, I’ve got to give a shout out to this market’s managers, whoever they are, for the high quality of live music presented here. I really enjoyed the jazzy brass ensemble last weekend and the bands on other Saturdays. And, if Jim Leff’s looking in, I think he’d be pleased to see musicians under the age of 40 improvising and swinging.
