I have no idea what that is sorry.

Food vendors are not allowed to prepare food in their home, they have to do it in a certified commissary, which is a commercial kitchen. They have low cost ones that work as a co-op around here.

The reason I decided against it was all the rules and crap. I want to cook pizzas, not run another business.

Like you say, its all crap.
You could still pass on some nasty bug from a co-op probably even more so.

You have to do a food handling course here, again its all arse covering crap.

Forgive me if I am nosing in where I shouldn't. Peter Reinhart did a segment on his pizza quest website about a kind of convention for wood fired oven entrepreneurs. Of course it was sponsored by FornoBravo to sell their trailer mounted ovens. There were several people who were doing exactly what you are proposing. They had a nice setup with a custom made trailer that included all the necessaries for production. Of course these folks were from all over the states. It might be different down under. I guess the main things are Location Location Location. If you can make a pizza people will pay money for then you can make money. From what I have seen of your posts, I would buy pizza from you.

I have also thought of just making and selling the trailers.

I hope you have public liability in case someone gets sick?
Al, google search HOT TRUCKS, a mobile WFO a customer of mine has set up. His wife drives the truck, cooks etc, and they have some young ladies do the serving etc.
They do corporate days, markets, weddings/parties, most any type of jobs.
Says it does pretty well, have plenty of bookings. Something that may go well in the area you live in. You could sell pizzas at the local footy?

Have you seen any of those old trucks with the oven on back? An old fire truck? I don't know anybody who can think out of the box more than you Al

Ive had a couple of ideas, make the oven look like the rear end of a rocket or jet plane engine, or, the firebox of a steam train.
Another one was a haunted gothic house.
