Wedding Catering

Basic Kneads provides catering throughout the Denver metro area and the Colorado mountains.

 

Our approach to catering is a bit different: nothing we serve is cooked in a remote kitchen and trucked over to your event. All our pizzas are cooked on-site, in our mobile wood-fired oven. When we serve a pizza, we have to warn people to be careful, they are bubbling hot, with steam filling the air above. We toss our salads right at your event, because fresh means delicious.

 

Basic Kneads consists of a small fleet of three mobile wood-fired ovens.  All vehicles can go anywhere a car could park, but only the trailers venture out of the front range. We cater indoor and outdoor events and have options for salad and appetizers.  We always provide gluten free pizzas and cook for vegans upon request.  Our outstanding pizza will impress even the most skeptical guests and you will always find our team friendly, professional, and organized.

 

We offer upfront pricing to help in planning your event. Our prices are competitive and we welcome you to explore the many other wonderful options for catering in Colorado. We think you will find that Basic Kneads offers a great value along with a unique experience.

Our team is small and aims to provide high quality service. For this reason, our event capacity is capped at 100 guests.  To get an "accurate" guest estimate, our suggestions is to assume 2/3 of our invites will make it to your event.  If you are inviting more than 150 folks, you are likely beyond our capacity, unless you are wanting multiple food vendors at your event
