WHAT TYPE OF EVENTS CAN YOU CATER FOR?
Our pizza service is perfect for weddings, private parties, corporate events, and intimate family gatherings.
For private events, we specialize in buffet-style service. This is also ideal for late-night wedding food or as a relaxed main wedding breakfast.
We also cater for a few select public events throughout the year. These can be found on our Events page. If you are looking for catering options for your public event, please give us a call.
HOW FAR DO YOU TRAVEL?
We are based in near Chichester, in West Sussex. We generally cover the local and surrounding area up to a 60 mile radius, including West Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire, East Sussex and parts of Kent.
IS THERE A MINIMUM ORDER?
For wedding evening guest catering, private events including parties and corporate events, we have a minimum peak season order (May to September) of 60 pizzas which will cater for up to 80 people. For October to April we have a minimum order of 50 pizzas which will cater for up to 65 people.
For Wedding Breakfast (main meal) catering we have a minimum order of 60 pizzas which will cater for 60 people.
We are happy to cater smaller events, however our minimum pricing structure will apply.
FOR WEDDINGS, HOW MANY PIZZAS SHOULD WE PLAN FOR?
For evening wedding food with guests who likely ate earlier, we would recommend catering three quarters of a pizza per person.
For a wedding breakfast where pizza is the main food, we would allow a whole pizza per person.
WHAT HAPPENS IF THERE IS LEFT OVER PIZZA?
If there's any remaining pizza after the initially prepared amount, we will ensure it is cooked and boxed up for you towards the end of the agreed service time.
CAN WE ORDER ADDITIONAL PIZZAS ON THE DAY?
We would require a minimum of 48 hours notice to provide additional pizzas due to the proofing time of our dough.
DO YOU REQUIRE ANYTHING FROM US?
Our Land Rover is fully self sufficient with on board leisure batteries, so we do not require any power supply or water.
An area of roughly 5m x 5m is required to setup our Land Rover with awning or gazebo (weather dependant). A relatively flat are is preferable, however we do have levelling ramps to accommodate slight inclines. An access height of 2.4m would be necessary to accommodate the height of our Land Rover with chimney. We can adapt to suit most situations and always happy to discuss more complex setups with you.
DO YOU PROVIDE PLATES AND NAPKINS AND CUTLERY?
As standard, we provide eco friendly white paper plates and napkins. For our premium package option we provide heavier duty premium compostible plates, napkins and the option of eco friendly disposable cutlery. we also carry pizza boxes for any leftovers.
WHAT TYPE OF PIZZAS CAN WE CHOOSE?
You can choose up to four pizzas options from our Sample menu, on top of this we can also offer our delicious sourdough garlic bread.
CAN YOU CATER FOR SPECIFIC DIETARY REQUIREMENTS?
We can cater for some dietary requirements on the day, however if it's possible to let us know beforehand, we will do our utmost to cater for your requirements.
DO YOU OFFER GLUTEN FREE PIZZA?
We do offer gluten free bases however, as all our pizzas are cooked in the same oven and we operate in a flour rich environment, there is a chance of cross contamination of flour. For this reason, our pizzas may not be suitable for coeliacs.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO COOK A PIZZA?
Once pizzas have been hand stretched and topped, they will take just 60 - 90 seconds to cook in the oven.
WHAT HAPPENS IF BAD WEATHER IS FORECAST?
If rain and / or moderate winds are forecast during our service time, we will use our gazebo set up. If heavy winds or rain are forecast, we can locate ourselves closer to the venue to keep the guests sheltered.
DO YOU USE A GAZEBO?
When the weather allows, we will usually setup with our small built in roll-out awning. This takes up slightly less room and shows off the Land Rover as more of a focal point. If the weather is not looking so favourable, we will use our gazebo.
IF WE ARE UNSURE OF FINAL GUEST NUMBERS, CAN WE CONFIRM NEARER THE TIME?
Absolutely, upon booking we will ask you for your estimated guest numbers so we can raise the deposit invoice. The final balance is then due 28 days prior to the event at which point you can confirm your final numbers, we will then adjust the balance invoice to reflect this.
HOW DO WE SECURE THE BOOKING?
To confirm a booking, we will require a few details from you in order to raise a deposit invocie for 40%, Once we receive the deposit, your event will be confirmed. The balance is then due 28 days prior to your event.
WHEN DO WE NEED TO FINALISE DETAILS?
There is no rush to confirm all the details at the time of booking. As long as we have enough information to book your event initially, that is sufficient. You can confirm the final details such as guest numbers and pizza choices at any time up to the date of the final invoice (28 days prior to the event). If you are still unsure as to the final details at this stage, please just let us know.
OUR VENUE REQUIRE YOUR H&S DOCUMENTS AND INSURANCE CERTIFICATES?
No problem at all, we can send over our full H&S pack - this includes our food hygiene documents, all necessary risk assessments and a copy of our public liability insurance certificate.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE YOU TO SET UP/PACK DOWN?
we will arrive one and a half to two hours before we begin serving, this gives us time to fire up the oven and get everthing set up. we then require about 45 minutes to pack down at the end of service.
HOW LONG DO YOU SERVE FOR?
Our standard package is a 2 hour service for up to 90 people and up to 3 hours for 100 plus (or until all pizzas / sides have been served). If you require a specific service time different form the standard, just let us know.
HOW MANY PIZZAS CAN YOU COOK IN A TWO HOUR PERIOD?
We can prepare and cook approximately 90-100 pizzas within a two hour service (based on a buffet style service).
HOW ARE THE PIZZAS PRESENTED?
Our pizzas are served as a buffet, displayed on wooden boards. Guests can help themselves to slices as we continuously replenish throughout the service. Generally, catering for individual pizza orders is usually not feasible at most events due to the slower nature of the service and guests having to wait for longer.
IS THERE A VEGAN OPTION?
Absolutely! Our current vegan pizza option is a delicious Marinara comprising a sourdough base, topped with our signature San Marzano based Marinara sauce, finely sliced garlic, fresh basil and extra virgin olive oil. We are more than happy to provide vegan cheese on request and discuss any others options you may have in mind.
