Wood fire pizza

At Stoked Kitchen we love wood fire Pizza.  We love pizza so much we decided to buy our own oven. Because we love what we do, our pizzas are imparted with passionate flavour from simple, quality ingredients.

Stoked Kitchen was established in 2012 by Greg Tonks. Greg has a wealth of experience in catering and hospitality. He’s a seasoned professional who has organised numerous events and gatherings, managed some of Manchester and Barcelona’s most exclusive bars and restaurants, and has accumulated over fifteen years experience in the industry.

In 2006 Greg was bitten by a nasty travel bug and decided to go walkabout for a few years. He worked in and travelled all over America, South Africa and Spain, and during his journey he discovered an alternative ‘old school’ approach to the way we cater for our friends and family. Greg came to realise that instead of the traditional cold sausage rolls and triangular tuna sandwiches of his youth, party catering could be an interactive experience creating an array of amazing smells drifting through the event, with guests listening to the sound of seasoned wood crackling on the fires or marvelling at the sight of produce being lovingly prepared with skill and precision. Greg, and his team at Stoked Kitchen really understand that this feast for the senses adds a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ to your occasion.

duckOn his return to England, after experiencing so many wonderful outdoor culinary events around the world (not to mention one or two beer festivals), Greg had an epiphany – that a pizza revolution in outdoor catering was ‘kneaded’! He then proceeded to purchase his ovens and equipment, and set out on his life changing quest – to bring gourmet artisan pizzas to the poor deprived people of Britain!

Be sure to give Greg and his team a call. They’ll be more than happy to discuss your upcoming event and the many options you can choose from.
