A run down on our catering services
We pride ourselves on our efficient services, so everything will be confirmed and finalised twice before your service date with the help of our concise booking form. This is where you will confirm all of your guest numbers, pizza flavours and any extra requirements. We offer a choice of x8 different flavours to be chosen throughout our traditional and gourmet menu so there is plenty of variety for your guests to enjoy.
On the day we arrive 1.5 - 2 hrs prior to service time to preheat the ovens, prepare your pizzas and set out a buffet table with napkins, disposable plates, sauces and spices for guests to enjoy throughout the night. Then during service, we can cook x3 pizzas in 2-3 minutes in our woodfired pizza oven and serve them out to the buffet table on wooden platters. This service allows your guests to help themselves to any flavour pizza and encourages mingling around the table.
With our 2 - 3 minute cook time, we can serve approximately 50 guests within 1 - 1.5 hrs. Toward the end of service, our team will talk with you about storing any remaining pizzas in convenient take away boxes for you and your guests to enjoy later before we start our packdown and cleanup.
With our catering services you don't need to worry about a thing; we will clean up the buffet table, remove any rubbish and clean our area so you can focus on your primary job- enjoying your night!
Why wood-fired pizza is better
A wood-fired pizza oven is a traditional oven that uses wood as its primary source of fuel to cook pizzas. The main difference between a wood-fired pizza oven and other types of ovens, such as gas or electric, is the way they heat up and cook the pizza.
Wood-fired pizza ovens are made of materials that can withstand very high temperatures, allowing the oven to reach temperatures of up to 500 degrees C. The intense heat generated by the wood fire creates a unique cooking environment that results in a crispier crust, a chewy texture, and a smoky flavor that is difficult to achieve with other types of ovens.
In addition to the distinctive taste and texture of the pizza, wood-fired pizza ovens can also cook pizzas in a matter of minutes due to their high temperatures, making them ideal for serving large crowds. The use of wood as fuel also adds an element of sustainability and natural authenticity to the cooking process, which is increasingly appealing to environmentally conscious consumers. Overall, the difference of a wood-fired pizza oven lies in its ability to produce a unique, authentic, and flavorful pizza that cannot be replicated with other types of ovens.

Why does choosing a small business matter?
If you're planning an event and considering catering options, you might want to think beyond the big chains and franchises.
Working with a small, family-owned pizza catering company can offer several advantages. Firstly, their size means that they are often more flexible in catering to your specific needs. They can customize their pizza offerings and services to suit your event's theme, size, and budget. Secondly, family-owned businesses tend to take more pride in their work and are personally invested in delivering high-quality food and service to their customers. Thirdly, you'll get the warmth and personal touch of family-style hospitality that can make your event feel more intimate and memorable.

Does your company practice being environmental sustainable?
Yes we do, in both our personal and professional lives we actively practise environmentally sustainability. Within the business all of our pizza boxes are made of recycled materiels certified by the FSC and we encourage everyone to recycle them again after use. In terms of our private catering we only supply biodegradable, eco-friendly napkins and plates and again encourage these to be disposed of ethically. Meanwhile on the food prep side of our business we use long term reusable containers, biofriendly everything wherever possible and actively work with our suppliers to support us, make environmentally conscious decisions. We’ve worked with our suppliers to minimise the use of single use plastics and work together to reuse cardboard boxes, provide biodegradable packaging options and to help us correctly dispose of used food containers.
Supporting all of these efforts, we also choose to buy our firewood from companies that are environmentally conscious and renewable. After all, we are the - Jungle Oven, and want to keep our planets’ gorgeous jungles alive and thriving.
