About this project

Vesta Flatbread got a truck! Help us give our mobile hearth its fiery heart so we can make the best flatbread in town.

After a year selling at farmers markets and festivals, we've taken a leap into the food truck scene. We're giving our setup a major overhaul so we can bring our food to the next level of deliciousness, and our extra special dream is to be able to cook our eponymous flatbread in a REAL oven. If funded, this project would allow us to install a beautiful gas-fired hearth oven aboard our new Vestamobile, allowing us to make proper pita, and some of the best flatbread you can find in the New World.

Our oven will be made by local ovencrafters Pacific Coast Brick Ovens, and will look a little something like this:

Project mobile hearth aims to further our perpetual goal: to evoke the big flavors of street food while honoring ancient food traditions, using fresh, organic, thoughtfully-sourced ingredients. We took our name from the Roman goddess of the hearth to invoke not only the Mediterranean region, but the magical spirit that for thousands of years has united the elements of flour, water, and fire.
