With "a little bit of Iowa, a little bit of Lousiana and a whole lot of Bayview," Kristin Houk and Matt Trahan's latest mobile food spot, All Good Pizza is bringing healthy food options to the neighborhood.

Pizza, paninis and salads are made with organic produce, herbs grown on the lot and hot links from San Francisco's Evergood Sausage Company. Houk, originally from Iowa, and Trahan, from Lousiana, live two blocks away from the mobile food facility and wanted to provide healthier food options for their neighborhood.

"We want to promote good food and sustainability. Everyone deserves equal access to healthy food and it's a great spot for the community to gather, collaborate, and feel safe," said Houk.

We recommend the Lousiana hot links pizza. Evergood hot links, pepperoncinis, cherry peppers, aged mozzarella and grana padano (a type of parmesan cheese) gives this pizza such a spicy kick that you'll need some of their freshly squeezed lemonade to wash it down with. A brush of olive oil and a pinch of alder smoked salt makes for a surprisingly flavorful thin crust.

All Good Pizza opened for business on Good Friday, earlier this month. The trailer they purchased from another couple is equipped with a full-service kitchen with a pizza oven and sits on a spacious 7,000 square foot lot. A smoker, lent from their neighbors at Evergood, is also on site.

Located on the corner of Jerrold Street and Third Street in Bayview, the fenced-in space is surrounded with succulents and other plants and offers picnic bench seating for guests. Jars with chalk at each table give kids a chance to draw.

The couple says their new venture is a passion project. Trahan is an electrician and Houk is the CEO and president of Namaste Direct.org, a non-profit organization empowering business development for low-income women in other countries.

"Mobile food facilities are there for the day, but we're here for the long haul," said Houk.

They plan to add restrooms, incorporate a community garden and serve beer. Check out their full menu here.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
