All you knead is love ... and pizza!
The gift of a pizza oven from Big Ian is where it all started. That, and our already-flaming love of all things Italian. Cue waking at 6am to make dough for pizza parties (as demanded by friends!) and experimenting with all the toppings you can think of.
Then the spark of an idea.
Why not just take what we love and share it with others? Along came a beautiful baby boy and a broken foot (Simon’s, ending his rugby career poor lad) – the perfect chance to get the ball rolling. First came our beautiful classic van, sourced from the Côte d’Azur. Then, we gave her a facelift and fitted her out with a gorgeous wood fired pizza oven and hit the road ready to spread smiles and fill tummies.

Our Wood Fired Pizzas
Every amazing pizza starts with the dough, and ours is no different. Only four ingredients go into our Neapolitan base: the finest Italian ’00’ flour, water, salt and yeast. Then, it is proved for 48 hours to develop the taste and make it easier to digest, before being balled.
Then the magic happens.
Opened by hand and topped with the best quality ingredients available, from San Marzano tomatoes sourced from the slopes of Vesuvius to fresh vegetables from our local greengrocers in Bourne End. Then it spends 60 seconds in our beautiful Valoriani wood fired oven blistering beautifully at 500 degrees before coming out ready to be gleefully gobbled!
Knead Pizza did the most fantastic job catering for our annual Volunteer Party. All our guests really enjoyed the food, with many commenting it was the most delicious pizza they had ever eaten. The team did a great job at keeping up with demand, which was no easy feat given that were over 80 hungry volunteers to feed! The vintage van also looked stunning, parked within one of our nature reserves. We couldn’t have asked for more! We’ll certainly be using Knead again in the future.Lucy Davies
We had Knead Pizza cater our wedding in May and they truly put their heart and soul into ensuring that all of our guests were full to the brim with delicious pizza all day! Having the Knead Team there on the day was truly a highlight and every single guest commented on how delicious everything was! They were able to turn around a huge variety of super cute, personalised, tasty, hot pizzas without anyone having to wait too long! They were also brilliant in the planning stages keeping me really calm and ensuring that they would handle everything on the day! They even went above and beyond to cater for all the guests dietary requirements! Lastly, when I explained my vision of a pizza wedding cake- they rose to the challenge and made my vision come to life without any trouble at all! It is still my favourite memory of the wedding- thank you Team Knead!
“We hired Knead Pizza to come and cater for our daugter’s16th birthday party. The van looks fabulous and the pizzas are the best pizzas in Bucks! The secret really is in the taste and Simon and Olivia are wonderful too. We wouldn’t hesitate to hire them again. We will be popping back to Flackwell Heath to eat some more yummy pizza in the meantime!”Fozia Hill
“Knead Pizza fuelled the 169th Annual Orley Farm School Quiz night, providing brain food but more importantly, contributing to the ‘heart and soul’ of this amazing charity event. Simon and Ollie joined us for a beer having catered for over 200 people and their passion for delivering soul food is what makes them pretty special…having relied on pizza chains in the past, tonight was very different and far more the spirit of us, thanks to them bringing their little ‘pizza love van’ to our event. I have no doubt that we’ll be turning to Simon and Ollie again and I don’t doubt that our parents will too judging by the empty boxes…! Here’s to the 170th Orley Farm Quiz Night…!”Tim Calvey
“Knead Pizza put on an amazing party for my 30th birthday, one I’ll never forget. Not only did they personalise a pizza for me (with my absolute favourite topping, Brie), but they also decorated their van with birthday messages, balloons, photographs and just all round amazingness. They were fantastic hosts; taking pizza requests from my friends, catering for dietary requirements and sharing their pizza expertise when multiple questions were asked about how they made a good pizza. I couldn’t recommend them more for any party, event or occasion. Service with a smile….and a damn good pizza! P.S. ask for the lemon curd pizza – it’s amazing!!”Andie Poore
“Hands down the best pizza I’ve had in the UK, and I’m a massive foodie! Lots of love and effort gone into it, and it genuinely shows. Cheaper than a Domino’s, and doesn’t leave you feeling clogged up! Simple and superb ingredients!”Nicola Treharne
