Then during the pandemic, he pivoted the business and converted a 1965 Citroën H Van into a pizza truck to visit various Norfolk venues.

Mr Wood, who lives in Norwich and is half Italian, said: "We put so much love into what we do and use three different types of flour in our dough - it takes up to 72 hours to prepare everything.

"I prefer doing the pop-ups and private events as you get more feedback and repeat customers."
