Services From YO31 Wood Fired Pizza Co
Our story started many years ago, when we hatched a plan to step off the 9 to 5 rat race of working for someone else, and create our own destiny.
We have always been passionate about food: discovering; buying; cooking ; eating; catering, and we love sharing this passion with like minded people. We love hosting dinner parties, which grew into supper clubs and occasional events, but we didn’t consider it as a career until the last few years. Life (as it usually does) took a turn, and I was faced with some decisions: carry on working for little reward or satisfaction, or make the leap and start a new career.
Our travels have taken us far and wide, but Northern Italy has become our chosen culinary destination, particularly the rolling hills, the vineyards and the rural beauty that is the Piedmont region in the north west. Pasta, pizza, white truffle, seafood, Barolo and Barbera d’Asti being our staple diet.
After spending a summer building a wood fired Pizza oven in the back garden, I decided to take it to the next level and purchase an old 3 berth horsebox, from a lovely old man called Frank, in East Sussex.
Towing it back the 300 miles to York was an interesting and terrifying experience, but we made it, and over the next eight months we set to work transforming it into a state of the art wood fired pizza trailer. No expense was spared, and no corners were cut. We had a beautiful ‘Bushman Wood Fired Oven’ installed by the legendary Jay Emery - the go to man for pizza ovens.
Our trailer has been christened ‘Audrey’ after Liz’s late mother, and since setting up the business, we have been inundated with requests to cater for many events. The proof is in the pizza, and there is something quite magical about making and cooking pizzas this way. For me, the joy is in the faces of our customers, as I take the pizza out of the oven and present it on the counter. The fact that it was cooked in a minute flat, and is ready to eat.
We hope that we can bring our lifelong passion to our customers through our wood fired pizzas, and share the joy of discovering the wonderful flavours and aromas.
