About Us

The Family

The team at Pizza Principles are pizza lovers but they have to be traditional hand-stretched Neapolitan wood fired pizzas, fire-tickled in a traditional Italian wood fired oven. We are based in Bollington, Macclesfield, Cheshire. We travelled the globe via Boulder Colorado to realise our dreams of fire-tickling the most delicious, dreamy authentic Neapolitan pizzas this side of Naples. We make traditional pizza for the most discerning and demanding pizza lovers across the North-West and Wales.

The Pizza

Adopting the principles applied over hundreds of years by the very best Neapolitan Pizzaiolos. We only use the finest Italian ’00’ flour for our pizza dough balls. These are made 24hrs before a booked event. We then hand stretch, (never roll), before topping with crushed DOP San Marzano tomatoes and 100% Italian Mozzarella. Then finally firing them in our genuine, large Italian wood fired oven. We cater for the best celebration parties ranging from 30 guests up to 700. If you demand the very finest Neapolitan pizzas, then Pizza Principles are for you. A Pizza Principles pizza, is a life affirming slice of oozing deliciousness that brings joy to the heart and comfort to the soul. Don’t take our word for it, just click here for client testimonials all of whom are available for consultation.

The Wood Oven Workshops (WOW) – Spreading the love

From our specially commissioned 5* FSA rated wood fired kitchen on the Bollington/Pott Shrigley border, we regularly hold wood fired cookery events. These attract people who are equally passionate about great Italian wood fired cuisine. People who wish to learn new skills in the management of their oven and the preparation and firing, of delicious food for their family and friends. Do drop us a line to register your interest in forthcoming classes, or just come see us at our kitchen to check us out. A great present for your fire-tickling partner!

The Celebrations – What We Do

Pizza Principles are available to hire for wedding catering (full menu or pizza), celebration events from birthdays, graduations, proms and engagements to large scale corporate event promotional catering. Staff reward and recognition events and film set/location catering. We also cater for local events in support of community and charitable causes, in our commitment to recognising the people and organisations that make a difference!

The Places – Where We Fire Up

From the grandest castles, the smartest hotels & manors, the country barn settings, to that unique celebration on a beach, in a meadow, up a mountain or in your garden or driveway. Pizza Principles wood fired ‘cucina’, can operate fully independently and ‘off grid’. With eco self-generating pumped hot water from the oven, to 12 volt inbuilt lighting and of course olive wood fuelling, we can go pretty much anywhere! Check out our ‘Trusted Partner’ pages to find venues and suppliers from tipis to photographers that we have met, worked with and can confidently recommend.
