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 five mobile wood-fired ovens. All vehicles can go anywhere a car could park, but only the trailers venture into the mountains. We cater indoor and outdoor events and have many 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 staff friendly, professional, and charming.
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.
