TOKYO -- On a quiet residential street in Tokyo, the delicious smells emanating from a nearby food truck stop passersby in their tracks.

Bakka, run by pizzeria Bakka M'unica, serves up freshly made pizza from a wood-fired brick oven right inside the truck. The 1,050 yen ($9.81) margherita pizza and the 1,000 yen four-cheese pizza are among its top sellers.
