The Magic Mountain Story
Everyone’s got a ‘story’ or a ‘journey’ now don’t they.
Anyway, let me introduce you to myself and Lulu.
My name is Joe, I am 25 years old and from Keswick in The Lake District. Lulu is a 1967 Citroen HY van who has spent most of her life in the South of France transporting onions from a small farm to a local market. In 2015 Lulu was brought to the UK and now together, we make some damn tasty doughy treats.

FANTASTIC … We have just had the best wood fired pizza we have ever eaten, absolutely cooked to perfection..and so tasty, we cannot recommend highly enough.. The pic is of ‘The Goat’ a perfect base with tomato, mozzarella, caramelised onion and Goats cheese - superb. We also had a Margherita which was also exceptional .. Just try one if you get the chance you really won’t be disappointed.

The Full Five Stars Well worth the (moderate) wait for this excellent pizza. Original and delicious combination of toppings on a perfect base. We’d made a silly mistake with our order but Joe was very accommodating and fixed it for us. Check social media to find where Lulu (the van’s called Lulu) will be next.

Gorgeous - book early or miss out! This pizza van is the best. Pizza delicious, service friendly. The guy makes his dough fresh each day (well, the day before). So he doesn’t make loads, they sell out on his pre booking system FAST! Make sure you get your order in during the day to avoid disappointment. Thanks so much for filling our bellies with one of the best pizzas we’ve ever had!

Best Pizza ever! Luckily we emailed ahead to order our pizzas on Saturday night and secured our order which I would recommend everyone staying at the Castlerigg campsite to do as the Magic Mountain Wood Fired Pizza van there on a Saturday and Wednesday are amazing, the best pizza van pizzas we have ever had. Lovely pizza dough and quality toppings. Joe was very friendly and even had chocolate brownies for pud! Highly recommend, five star *****

Great pizza which ever you choose Staying at Castlerigg Hall camping and lucky to be here when the pizza van was on site. A small but perfect range of interesting pizzas. The flavours and cooking were excellent and all three were delicious. Definitely recommend pre ordering as when we went to collect ours it was fully booked and deservedly so. Thanks for some great food and the best of luck with the venture. Thank you

Best pizza. Absolutely fantastic pizza, with great flavours! Do not go past the GOAT. It would have been lovely to have a place to sit, considering we travelled to try the pizza van. However, even sitting in car it was to die for. Will definitely be returning!

Fantastic pizza Not all pizzas are the same! Needed to wait another as the pizza van was so popular but it was worth the wait. Went for the chorizo which was quite spicy which I loved. Fully recommend.

UNREAL! 99 problems but a pizza ain't one.... Best pizza you'll get in Cumbria. Hand made by the best staff/owner of the biz with the freshest ingredients and exciting specials. Plenty of vegan and veggie options too which is an added bonus. The van and set up itself creates a great atmosphere but the location changes daily which helps to enable you to see other local sights. Wherever you try this pizza, you'll be sure to enjoy. You're also supporting small businesses by shopping local.
