CHARITABLE PIE WOOD FIRED PIZZA
Incredible Food You Won’t Forget
NOW BOOKING Fall 2023 AND BEYOND
Charitable Pie Wood Fired Pizza brings catering to the Phoenix and surrounding areas in an elegant, intimate way. We offer catering for backyards celebrations for birthdays, anniversaries, graduations or any other important special events you would like to celebrate. We also offer catering for larger events such as wedding, rehearsal dinners and corporate events. What makes us different from the other wood fired caterers is that I designed my equipment to fit into smaller spaces such as backyards etc. Most of us in the Phoenix area are limited on space so it was important to me to be able to provide an intimate, elegant and entertaining experience for our customers by being able to cook where the party is. We’ve all been to that party where the food truck in on the curb in the front of the house but the party is in the backyard. You just miss out of the ambiance of having food cooked in front of you. Our goal is to create a truly unique experience for you and your guests. We are not just serving pizza, we will entice your guests by preparing and cooking their meal on site, in most cases in full view of your guests. All of the senses will be captivated, heightening their dining experience. This allows your guests to enjoy the theater of live cooking. We focus on quality, flavor and unique combinations. We bring our expertise to your home or event, giving you the freedom to enjoy top-quality meals without making an effort. Contact us to see what we’ve got to offer.

MEET THE FOUNDER
Charitable Pie has been a vision of mine for years and now its time to bring that vision to reality. Growing up, my mother always instilled in us the importance of giving back in any way we could. She was a single mother, sometimes working 2 jobs at a time to make ends meet, but somehow she was always giving back to others in one way or another. I have carried that on with my daughters being a part of a mother/daughter volunteer organization for the past 10 years. Now that my children are grown, I would like to continue the charitable work with my new business. I know that many businesses give back in one way or another but I wanted that to be the focus of my business, giving back at every event, thus the name Charitable Pie. I just love the idea of combining my passions for cooking and entertaining and supporting those in need.

**We must have a clear path to access your backyard of AT LEAST 36" for wood fired pizza oven. All obstacles need to be cleared prior to us arriving. The oven weighs 500+lbs so clear access is necessary. There needs to be a plan B for a place to set up if the backyard isn't accessible and in that case pizzas will be run to your backyard and setup on a serving table. If your HOA has any special requirements, please make sure your event is cleared with them prior to arrival. We have added smaller, gas fired Roccbox pizza ovens if the large oven will not fit. They also make amazing fired pizzas.
Ideally we would like access to electric. If you need use of a generator there is an additional charge of $30.
We look forward to helping you host a beautiful event!
