Based in Bollington, near Macclesfield in Cheshire and operating from a bespoke 5* rated dedicated commercial kitchen, Pizza Principles are a premium Italian mobile wood fired oven caterers who prepare and fire delicious authentic Neapolitan pizza and exceptional aromatic Mediterranean cuisine from the largest available transportable ovens. We specialise in creating personalised menu's for big occasions; weddings, celebration parties, film sets/location shootings and corporate events across Cheshire, the wider North West and North/Mid Wales.
We use the finest ingredients, preparing our caputo pizza dough 24 hours before an event to ensure the very best flavour and texture. We hand stretch our pizza dough before your guests to ensure the authentic Neapolitan experience and top with crushed San Marzano tomatoes and 100% Italian mozzarella and offer a large range of pizza's from the original margherita to our own speciality - Bianca Fresca; garlic infused olive oil, goats cheese, prosciutto and fresh fior di latte, fired and then finished with fresh and crispy lemon olive oil dressed rocket and parmesan shavings.
Our pizza crusts are bubbled and lightly singed offering a thin Neapolitan base that has just the right amount of exposure to our oven floor to allow it to be folded for a delicious eating experience. It's our attention to detail, our delicious food, great theatre and the love of authentic Neapolitan pizza that truly sets Pizza Principles apart. We underpin all this with certification from Cheshire East Council who have inspected our kitchen and operating standards and awarded us 5 star Food Standards Agency certification.
Pizza Principles are ready to raise the bar at your celebration event and create some fantastic lasting memories.

Can’t thank you enough for the amazing pizzas on Saturday! We loved them and so did our guests, we had so many comments complimenting! My husband wants to know if you can give us the recipe for your Nduja Pizza as this was out of this world? Do you use fennel seeds? Once again, many thanks to you and the team for putting on a great selection of pizza. We could tell that you are so passionate with your product and you should be as it’s bloody great. Abi
