MOBILE WOOD-FIRE CATERING

“Big River Pizza came and catered our wedding; they were simply phenomenal. So many guests came up to me to tell me how much they loved the pizza. I was particularly touched when they found us in the hectic mix of the evening to ask us what we (my new husband and I) wanted on our pizza, without them seeking us out I’m not sure as we would have eaten! The pizza was so wonderful, fresh, and one of the best decisions we made around the wedding. Thank you, Big River Pizza!”

  • How is the pizza served? We serve 15” pizzas cut into squares served family style from our 10×10 tent.  There are a few instances when a food runner is required (additional fees required), those instances are generally when:
    • Groups are larger than 100 people
    • Food is being served in alternate location
  • What if it rains?  We can still make pizzas in some challenging weather.  Severe weather, 20 plus mph winds, and hail can shut down an event.  A garage or shelter can be used to move our mobile kitchen into.  We would back our oven up to (not inside) of the garage and continue to make pizzas
