About

We cook between 80-100 pizzas an hour in the wood-fired oven, a speed of production that means we can serve your guests really quickly. We are able to achieve this because of the size of our oven and our set up – we are not enclosed in a van, so we set up a portable kitchen around the oven and bring a whole team of staff to prepare and cook the pizza in front of you. We need 4.5m by 4.5m of flat, accessible outside space, ideally with access to electricity for our lights. The pizza wagon is a heavy beast that has to be towed into place by our pick up truck, so we need a decent amount of space to manoeuvre into the right position. A concrete, gravel or other hard surface is ideal, but grass is fine too - as long as we are able to drive onto it. Sadly, a terrace with steps won't work for us, nor will somewhere with a very narrow entrance or a hairpin turn.

We make all our own dough and tomato sauce, and our meat and veg comes from local butchers and greengrocers. Our thin and crispy pizzas cook in less than 2 minutes and are served on compostable plates. We have sourced some good gluten-free pizza bases and of course vegetarians and vegans get delicious choices too.

We ask you to choose 4 or 5 pizzas from our menu in advance – if you have numbers of 100 plus we suggest you limit to just 4 choices as it means we can keep the speed and momentum going so your guests don’t have to wait long. We generally place the sharing platters on the tables so your guests have something to graze on whilst they are waiting their turn for pizza but we have found that ‘buffet style’ works best for those where we keep cooking the range of pizzas, cut into slices and served onto our buffet table in front of the pizza oven. This means there is a constant supply of pizzas and guests can try a few different toppings. The joy of our pizzas is eating them straight from the oven so what we can’t do is serve everyone at the same time, but it’s ideal if your guests can be served in groups over an hour or two.

For a main meal option we offer sharing platters that we place on the tables followed by pizza and a mix of 3 salads and then puddings which we place on a dessert table. Having the platters on the tables gives those who are waiting their turn at the pizza buffet something to graze on and the puddings on the table allow those that were first to the pizza to tuck into dessert when they are ready.

We can’t recommend enough

We recently used Kernowforno for our wedding breakfast and can’t recommend them enough! We wanted a relaxed festival vibe for our wedding and thought, what better than canapés, pizza and desserts?!

We go in contact with Adam who was extremely helpful and friendly. He sent us over their fantastic menu and got the ball rolling.

We were spoilt for choice with the menu and there was something that catered to all of our guests preferences! After booking Kernowforno we also went to visit them at their pop up in Lostwithiel to try their pizza, which did not disappoint! Adam who was incredibly busy also took the time to chat to us which we really appreciated.

On the wedding day Adam and his team embraced the torrential rain with us and adapted to the situation. Our guests loved all of the food and are still raving about it, over a week later! 🍕we also appreciated the left over pizza for our midnight snack and the next day 🫣

Thank you so much and we will definitely be visiting you guys for pizza when we are next down!
