“Great little pizza place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

Cool, unique pizzas, such a cool set up. We had 1 pizza per 2 people and were satisfied with the portions. Could do 1:1 if really hungry!

“Amazing Pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Just to clear up any confusion, I am writing about Francesca's Pizza, which is a food truck or pizza wagon in a lot next to the Base X hostel. Francesca, I think, also has a fancy restaurant, and one of the photos here is of the restaurant, not the pizza wagon.
I'm a late comer to the food truck craze, and I've heard that pizza trucks are quite common. But I had never seen one and I'm a sucker for wood-fired ovens.
The pizzas are reasonably priced and imaginative combinations. I had rocket, chorizo and goat cheese (plus the basic tomato sauce and mozzarella). There are half a dozen or so choices available and two sizes. They assemble the pizza right there in front of you and you can watch it bake in the wood oven.
Most of the business in winter is takeaway, but there are outside tables if it's warm enough.
This is really delicious pizza.

“Great pizza's - great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

Tried out a few pizza's from Francesca's over our recent visit to Wanaka - service was always quick and friendly, the pizza's were great and filled the gap after a hard day's skiing.

The 'garlic bread' was slightly unusual compared to what I would normally expect....

“Pepperoni delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

Great pizza base. As everything is a 2 min drive to town, ordered to collect and pizza was still hot to eat.
Good option after being at TC and not wanting to cook or sit in a restaurant.
The boys do well to whip these up in their pizza van.
