Inspired by the Neapolitan tradition in Italy, Crankees Pizzeria strives to follow strict guidelines when it comes to making its wood-fired pizzas.

Vegetables come from local farmers and the truck uses Italian and American cured meats. Crankees’ 10-inch personal pizzas are made fresh to order and topped with the best regional ingredients.

2 years.


It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
