Our Delicious Wood-Fired Pizza Experience
When you choose Wooden Paddle as your wedding caterer, we’ll deliver a gourmet wood-fired pizza experience to your celebration. We bring our mobile oven and pop-up kitchen right to your venue, providing a one-of-a-kind reception event:
- Point us to the nearest 12-by-8-foot dry, flat area and an additional 12-by-12-foot space for our kitchen and pizza assembly area, and we’ll be good to go.
- We’ll arrive early and set up our mobile oven and kitchen on-site so everything on your menu is as fresh as can be.
- Your guests will love watching our chefs hand-stretch the dough, add the toppings, and fast-fire it to perfection. This means your food is prepared and cooked only moments before it’s served.
- Our ash wood-fired pizza oven heats up to more than 800 degrees. At that heat level, each pizza is cooked to perfection in seconds, resulting in aromas, textures, and flavors no conventional oven can match.
One of our ovens works fast enough to serve up to 250 people, so your friends and family will never be left waiting for their next mouthwatering bite!
