Orapello's Wood Fired Pizza

Growing up in Upstate New York as part of a large Italian family, food has always played a central role in my life. My mother taught me that even the most basic of ingredients, when carefully selected for quality and flavor could produce amazing results.

About 5 years ago, I decided that, just for fun, I would try to develop the perfect pizza. The foundation of this pizza would be nothing other than Neapolitan. From crust to sauce to cheese – I was determined to create the ultimate pie. My wife, Kim, always jokes my pizza was 5 years and 25 pounds in the making. Within the past 5 years I realized this is more than a hobby or challenge, it is my passion and what I was meant to do.

A crust made with (00) imported Italian flour, Spring water, Sicilian sea salt, and a natural leavening process that utilizes an Italian culture from the island of Ischia, Italy.

The best of toppings including San Marzano tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, garlic, fresh basil, oregano, to name a few.

It was time to bring my pizza to the masses. But there was only one way this Neapolitan style pizza could be baked. Enter the WOOD FIRED MOBILE PIZZA TRAILER. We have imported an authentic Italian wood-fired oven and housed it on a custom-built trailer that can be transported directly to any event.

Combining the time honored-tradition of an Imported Italian oven, pizza baking at 800-900 degrees, I can bring the entire Italian kitchen right to my customers’ doorstep, providing them with fresh from the oven, Neapolitan pizza in 1 ½ to 3 minutes. Building on a Neapolitan crust, sauce and cheese blend recipe, customers can customize their pizza by choosing from a selection of toppings that range from the traditional to the gourmet.

We specialize in creating authentic Neapolitan Pizza at Private Parties, Family Reunions, Weddings, Class Reunions, Holiday Parties, Anniversaries, Wine Events, Fundraisers, Birthday Parties, and Business Functions throughout Upstate New York. We also serve our 8” Personal Pan Pizza’s at Farmer's Markets, Festivals, Grand Openings, and Athletic Events to name a few.
