Rock 'n Dough Pizza to Open Pop-up Restaurant Behind Trolley Stop Market

Jeremy Denno's customized pizza truck includes a wood-fire oven.

Rock ’n Dough Pizza Co., a food truck business run by Jeremy and Amanda Denno, is opening a pop-up restaurant in the lot directly behind Trolley Stop Market. The couple hopes to have the new business ready to go by July.


Denno, who is a cook and kitchen manager for Trolley Stop, says his wood-fired menu won’t be served until 9 p.m. “We’ll start after Trolley Stop closes, and we’ll say open late,” he says.


Wood-fired pizzas definitely will be served, but the rest of the menu will be seasonal and stay “in constant motion.” Denno won’t serve alcohol, but customers will be able to bring their own beer or wine.


For now, he’s got an overgrown field to mow and a slab to pour for tables. Then, he’ll build a lean-to with a roof. “It’s going to be laid back, casual and fun,” Denno says.


The couple will continue to operate their food trucks, which typically show up at the Memphis Farmers Market on Saturdays and at catered or special events. In addition to their wood-fired pizzas sold by the slice or the pie, Rock ’n Dough Pizza Co. offers wraps, hoagies and drinks, including house-made strawberry lemonade. You can track the trunks' whereabouts on Twitter @rockndoughpizza.
