Listen to a few samples of Leigh!
Opening a food truck was not exactly the original plan.
Leigh has always dreamed of being her own boss, coming from a family of entrepreneurs & being the stubborn child she is, having a food truck came naturally.
But before there was pizza, there was music. In addition to being a talented pizza chef, Leigh is also a gifted & talented singer/songwriter/musician/producer who has always had a passion for creating in whatever capacity.
After graduating high school, Leigh lived in Salt Lake City & worked for a pizza company called San Francisco Sourdough Pizza (Ironically enough) She learned everything about the business from (initially) delivering pizzas on a bicycle in the snow! She worked hard & learned fast then soon became the store manager before eventually returninng back to her east bay roots.
With the continued focus of making it in the music industry, she managed Strictly to Go Pizza in Walnut Creek for 5 years before jumping into the booming self storage industry. Always keeping the creative culinary juices alive, she worked on her recipes for years just as a passionate hobby.
In 2009, unemployed from the recession, Leigh's mom & best friend Tammy was diagnosed with breast cancer. 2 years later, after her Mom passed (2011) she re-evaluated her life & career & decided to go with her heart & focus on her 2nd love... PIZZA!
Leigh briefly reacquainted herself in the food industry & worked for a locally owned "east coast style" pizza place before finding out her sister had a brain tumor and quit to help her through the process. (Thank you Dr. Mc D & UCSF)
As soon as her sister got better, she found the perfect (so she thought) job of opening/working her own kitchen at a new up & coming pub in downtown Concord. (Now closed) After rave reviews of her pizza & appetizers, Leigh, with the help of her partner Lori, decided it was time to go out on a limb and do it herself, her way.
A slice of Leigh, a slice of ITALEIGH!
Since opening in 2015 , SLICE OF ITALEIGH PIZZA TRUCK has been called one of the "BEST NY STYLE PIZZAS" in the Bay Area. Our east coast customers often say that our pizza reminds them of the pizza they grew up on.
We know there are MANY GOOD pizza places all over California. But not too many that compare to true NY style! If you think CA doesn't have good east coast pizza, please come try us out!
