About Fox Pizza Bus
Fox Pizza Bus is a Los Angeles based, traveling wood-fired restaurant & catering company featuring organic, artisanal foods specializing in handcrafted pizzas.
The Fox Pizza Bus began as the dream of two young entrepreneurs to bring simple, quality food to the streets of Los Angeles on a mobile platform. Starting in August 2008, Chef Mike Fox and event planner Jordan Hieshetter began focusing their efforts to seeking out the perfect mobile platform to do so. That platform came into America by way of sea at Port Hueneme in July 2009. What arrived was a bright yellow, Scottish transit double decker bus-complete with orange plaid interior. After a lengthy makeover and transformation, which included a custom-built commercial kitchen, the Fox Pizza Bus premiered during the summer of 2010 featuring the only mobile enclosed wood-burning oven in the country. Back from hiatus, The Fox looks forward to partying with each and every one of you in 2012.
As always, we continue our dedication to local, organic and sustainably sourced ingredients. It’s simple; the best ingredients make the best food. We’re not snobs, we’re supportive of Southern California farmers & ranchers and encourage a seasonally focused menu.

Growing up in Los Angeles, this valley boy developed a taste for street food as a kid tagging along with his father to every hole-in-the-wall restaurant and stand in the area. A chef from the very beginning, Fox earned his first Kitchen Aid Mixer for a 13th birthday present and began devoting his life to food. After gaining his bachelor’s degree in Culinary Arts & Hospitality Management at Le Cordon Bleu Scottsdale Culinary Institute, Fox pursued his ambition of owning a small wood-fired pizzeria or taco truck serving a modernized take on food reminiscent of the many places he grew up visiting. Taking his experience cooking in esteemed fine dining establishments in Santa Barbara & Scottsdale and work as a private chef and caterer, Fox brought his love of wood fired food to life in the Fox Pizza Bus.
