What started as a family tradition, has become a food truck for all of Oklahoma City to enjoy. In this Food Truck Q&A, Molly Hall of The Hall’s Pizza Kitchen shares how they came up with their pretty creative name, their most popular offerings, and where to find them.
What is Hall’s Pizza Kitchen and what do you serve?
We are the Hall family and we serve wood-fired pizza from our rolling truck around OKC! We serve pizza by the slice alongside several salads and cookies.
What got you started on The Hall’s Pizza Kitchen?
Our pizza started as a family tradition – for over 20 years, we have made pizza on Saturday nights and enjoyed it together. About three years ago, we decided to share our tradition on the streets of OKC. It has been such a fun adventure – we have loved the opportunity to get to know and become friends with our customers.
Let’s talk about he design of the food truck. What made you go with your trailer and how did you decide on the name?
Well…we were obviously pretty creative with our name! But really, we want your experience with us – from pizza to hospitality – to be just like being in our family’s home, in our kitchen. We love our truck and much of the design is custom for our needs.
What are your most popular options?
We keep our menu pretty simple so that means that we sell a lot of them all! Our most popular slice (and my personal favorite) is the Saturday Night, our take on pepperoni – sausage, pepperoni, fresh basil, our sauce, whole milk mozzarella, parmigiano reggiano. The Matt is a favorite, too – a vegetarian pizza named after our non-meat-eating cousin who we originally made it for – homemade pesto, caramelized onions, red and yellow peppers, and artichokes. Of our “what’s new today” slices (our rotating specials) the Samwise is our most requested! It has Rosemary roasted potatoes (yes, potatoes), bacon, caramelized onions, cream cheese, and balsamic reduction. Lastly, our salted caramel chocolate chip cookies are too good to turn down.
What’s a typical day like?
There’s no typical day for food truck owners – every day is a new adventure, which keeps us on our toes! If the truck is out for a lunch, the fire is started in the oven by 7:00 am. While the fire is doing its thing, we make our Daily salads, bake cookies, and head to our event location about an hour and a half before service. After making some pizza, we clean the truck up and either head to the next event or park the truck for the day. We just got a snapchat (thehallspizza) and have had fun posting about the inner workings of food truck life.
What are some of your usual spots and where can people go to learn more about your truck and where you’ll be located?

We post our schedule weekly, but we regularly park at Bleu Garten, Heard on Hurd, Plenty Mercantile, and Blue Seven. Follow us on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook for more pictures and fun stuff.
