Basic Kneads provides catering throughout the Denver metro area and the Colorado mountains.

Our approach to catering is a bit different: nothing we serve is cooked in a remote kitchen and trucked over to your event. All our pizzas are cooked on-site, in our mobile wood-fired oven. When we serve a pizza, we have to warn people to be careful, they are bubbling hot, with steam filling the air above. We toss our salads right at your event, because fresh means delicious.

We have four mobile wood-fired ovens.  All vehicles can go anywhere a car could park, but only the trailers venture into the mountains. We can cater indoor and outdoor events and have many options for salad and appetizers.  We always provide gluten free pizzas, vegetarian options, and can cook for vegans (or meat lovers!) upon request.  Our outstanding pizza will impress even the most skeptical guests and you will always find our staff friendly, professional, and charming.

We offer upfront pricing to help in planning your event. Our prices are competitive and we welcome you to explore the many other wonderful options for catering in Colorado. We think you will find that Basic Kneads offers a great value along with a unique experience.

  • Prices listed here are for “food service catering” during a 4 hour window.  While we are on site, most of our time is spent preparing for and feeding your guests a delicious meal, as well as providing clean-up of food service related items.   We are certainly happy to assist with some tasks but generally do not provide full event set-up/tear-down, or staffing for these activities.  If you or your venue requires “full service catering” you will very likely need to hire additional staffing services which we are not able to provide.
  • *Some events may be subject to additional costs associated with travel, licensing, or specific venue or location requirements.  Our quote will outline all costs.
