Timber Pizza Co., a mobile pizzeria composed of a wood-burning oven hitched to the back of a 1967 blue Chevy pickup, is poised to open a brick-and-mortar by the end of the year.

The restaurant will be housed in a 1,050-square-foot building that formerly held a church. Timber Pizza owners Andrew Dana and Chris Brady plan to serve their signature Neapolitan-ish pies plus salads and collaboration pizzas using ingredients from other D.C. producers.

They hope to eventually serve alcohol. “It’s going to be fun, and we’re not taking ourselves too seriously,” Dana says. “We want to be a neighborhood staple.”

There will also be patio seating and minimalist decor. “We’re aiming for a classic, clean look that evokes summer in Vermont,” Dana says.
