We are currently thinking about hiring a food truck that does wood-fired pizzas on site! We have been struggling to find a caterer that will travel to our rural location, provide vegetarian and vegan food, and fit within our modest budget. The best part is that the cost will be under $20 pp for all you can eat pizza! That gives us salad and 4 choices of pizza.
We can add 3 appetizers for an additional $9 pp, but we might go with some basic fruit and cheese trays from Sam’s Club instead (which would cost about $3 pp).
Our wedding will be pretty casual and have a high percentage of kids, so I think pizza will be great and please everyone. However, we’re having it on a farm and having a rustic/western theme. Does it matter if our food doesn’t match our theme? What do you think?

@carrotstick: Is everyone vegan? Are you vegan for ethical reasons? If not, could you do a pizza with canadian bacon? You have cheese on your pizza so I assume it’s not vegan for ethical reasons. Ummm…how about a pizza with white sauce, mushrooms, spinach, and sun dried tomatoes (for color)? Or a pizza with tomatoes, olives, and marinated tofu or soy bacon? I worry about the lack of protein.

I love this! If I would have had a *real* wedding, I would have definitely done something like this! I just wanted to say as a vegetarian, I super appreciate the varied options. Not sure if you’re veg or not, but this is a fantastic menu. 🙂

They all sound absolutely delicious!

I’d be most likely to eat the first option because I generally prefer my pizza pretty plain. It sounds like this could be done nicely, it all looks/sounds pretty elegant as far as pizza goes! And I don’t think it clashes with your theme. The only thing I mmight consider is having an option or two with some meat on it.

I clicked every choice because wood-fired pizza is am Achilles (well…food is). Though, I left off the pears + sage bc fruit and cooked cheese are not my taste at all (although Taleggio is delicious).

I would happily eat all of those except the honey and pears one. I don’t care for sweet/savory dishes.

I would only eat the first one. I don’t consider the other ones pizza.

I would eat all of them and very happily! As a vegetarian, I will eat pretty much any combination of fruits, vegetables, and cheese.

ALL of them. I never met a pizza I didn’t like, and those all sound delicious!

Yum yum! It all sounds delicious!

I love pizza and would eat any of those that you have listed.

I would eat them all! Except the one with mushrooms, but lots of people like mushrooms so I don’t think you could go wrong with any of those choices.

@lawbride88: I’m Buddhist and vegetarian for religious reasons, and a good chunk of my friends and family- including my father and my MOH- are vegetarian or vegan.
My fiance and I are different religious, but our compromise was to be married by a Apostolic Pastor (his religion) and have a vegetarian reception.
I’m pretty sure nobody will die from lack of protein on one meal. 😉 But the pizza dough and cheese have protein, and the salad will have walnuts.

@MlleFabuleux: Yeah, I wasn’t sure if anyone would like the pear pizza but I put it on there anyway because it sounds interesting. I’m definitely going to ask to try it at our tasting though!
