Okay, so I’m having an outdoor reception in my fiance’s backyard in Southern California’s Temecula Wine Country. We are catering to 250 guests on a budget. I want to do woodfired pizza in a semi-classy way including a variety of salads and so forth. Orignially his parents wanted a sit-down dinner… with steak and the typical wedding food. The problem is it’s SO pricey!
1. As a guest, would you love this?
2. Any suggestions?
*My family and friends are more casual and would get a kick out of the fact that I had pizza served. I’m a pizza lover!

@kimmyfitz: I would TOTALLY LOVE THIS. Please send me an invitation!!!!
ETA: I love a more casual flair. Not sure, but if I suggested this idea to my mother, she would probably freak out. So I understand the dilemma! But as a guest, YES YES YES! Plus it’s a backyard wedding… if it were in a really fancy hall, I could see the disconnect. But it makes sense to me!

As long as not all of the pizzas had frou-frou toppings (in other words, some regular plain cheese type of offerings) I would be ALL about this.
(BTW my fiance and I are planning on having a tex-mex barbeque buffet at our wedding. I’d rather have food that is delicious that everyone can enjoy for a fraction at the price than pay out the wazzoo to have something mediocre delivered to the table in the name of class.)

Love woodfire pizza and would gladly enjoy it if I was a guest at your wedding.
Love love, hawaiian and bbq chicken pizza. Fiance loves white pizza and pears and gorgonzola cheese.

i would love this if it were done right. you could serve it family style or do personal sized pizzas.. some nice salads, maybe a pasta salad option and one with a nice balsamic.. or caprese…

yeah, this sounds awesome. just make sure you have PLENTY of toppings that appeal to all tastes!
have some more “fun”ones- like fig, goat cheese and proscuitto, but also more safe- like sausage and pepper.

Oh man, wood-fired Neopolitan pizza is UH-MAZING. I would love to be served this at a wedding.
I would do a couple standard yet “fancified” flavours, like cheese (“four cheese”: mozzarella, parmesan, provelone, smoked gouda, maybe blue cheese or brie) & pepperoni (use fancy Italian cured meats instead!), as well as some pumped-up flavous (chicken & artichoke, spinach & pesto, etc.). Check out http://www.famoso.ca for some ideas — I go there TONS!

I love wood-fired pizza, but I’d be worried about eating it while I’m all dolled up.

I would also love this! I agree that there might be just a moment’s hesitation about getting messy in my good dress, but I’d get over it!
And I’m also having the same problem where I want more casual food like sandwiches or pasta as a lunch but FI’ and his parents don’t think it’s good enough. I just won’t understand it! It’s so frustrating!

Is this like a make-your-own-pizza situation… because I’d SO be down with that. Then again, any pizza is a win in my book, so I love it.

We are having a mobile woodfired pizza oven for our rehearsal dinner! It took some convincing of my Future Mother-In-Law, but once she realized it wasn’t Domino’s, she was on board. We showed her pics of the oven and that really helped!
