LA Pizza catering for wedding?

For the record--Pizza e vino DOES have a mobile wood oven. Still getting all the details (and if it will really be a good idea), but it does exist and they do catering.

LA Pizza catering for wedding?

Thanks so much! I will definitely try contacting them & see what happens.

I am thinking it will probably be around 75-85 people. I am not totally sure on the budget, but in an ideal world, it would be like $3000-$4000 total (including servers at least--if not rentals). From what I am reading/receiving from caterers that is totally beyond the realm of reality, so I am trying to think outside the box.

Kogi truck is about $1000 minimum + gratuity (and thats for all u can eat for i think 2-3 hours for 100 people). I know not everyone will like that though, so I was thinking perhaps if that would end up being less than hor d'ouvres or whatever, I could do that for cocktail hour & something else simple/cool/fun for dinner. Or just something else altogether!

Open for suggestions for sure!

You definitely did harsh my mellow, but I'm glad to know the reality of the situation. I don't know if the situation would be the same if it wasn't thin-crust (like flatbread or regular crust), but I know that the only good pizza is hot fresh pizza (with a few exceptions), so I might run into similar problems with those too.

I am definitely open to other suggestions for interesting/different/less expensive catering options. One I had thought of was the Kogi taco truck (which is one of my favorite things), but not everyone likes Korean & I can't think of what would "go" with korean bbq tacos that would be a general crowd pleaser.

Not feeling In-n-out, or really any of the other "carts", but anyone have any other suggestions??

Thanks for the suggestions! I think Mozza may be out of the budget even if they do cater (I'm trying to find a way to bring costs down), but I contacted Pitfire Pizza to see if they do anything besides just drop off the orders. Wouldn't want to have cold-ish pizza!

Keep any suggestions coming! A few other places - and by places I mean states - have a number of full-on wood fire grill catering, that bring their own wood grill! i haven't seen anything like that in LA, but has anyone else?

Hi!
First post here, but I've definitely used chowhound boards for suggestions lots in the past!

I am planning a wedding for next summer & am trying to figure out ways to keep the costs down. One idea I had (which may or may not actually be a lot less in price) is to have pizza catered. Not like dominoes, but possible wood-grilled, or fancy flatbreads, and then maybe some salads and pastas. Sound good?

The only option I've found so far (which I got from chowhound) is Angeli Caffe.
Any other suggestions--or even alternatives to make for a decent wedding while keeping the budget low?

The venue isn't set yet, but it will likely be a studio somewhere around downtown LA or the Central Library. The guests will be 75% folks aged 25-30, and the rest in 50's & 60's. Not a SUPER adventurous food crowd, but not the worst either.

help!!!
