Flax Studios - Pizzas in oven


Pizza By Fire specializes in food truck style catering for private events.  We arrive with one of our wood fired units and prepare and serve our wood fired pizza, fresh made pasta, salads, appetizers, and desserts.  Our catering has the look and cool factor of a food truck but the speed and service of a more traditional catering company. This catering service is available for all days and times but generally books up well in advance for Friday and Saturday evenings.

Wood Fired Bagel Catering

We are now offering Maine's first and only Montreal style mobile wood fired bagel catering service that we are calling Bagels By Fire.  Made the traditional way bagels are hand rolled, boiled, and baked in our wood fired oven at your event location.  Bagels are served along with typical spreads, and toppings plus breakfast style wood fired pizzas including a variety of veggies, meats, eggs, and cheese.  This catering service is available for Sunday Brunch, and midweek lunch.

2020 Update - We are now offering our wood fired bagels by the dozen on a pre-sale pop-up date basis in the Portland area.  Follow Bagels By Fire on Facebook or Instagram for announcements for when we will be doing them in the future.  Quantities are limited and generally sells out quickly. 


Recent feedback about our wood fired bagels:

"Those bagels are out of this world.  I am beyond impressed."

"My family already says they're better than the others we've been getting."

"My family has voted these bagels to be the best in Portland, high praise in our house."

A deep and lasting interest in baking was inspired by a traditional grandmother who seemed to conjure up the most delightful treats without written recipes.  Many years later this passion for artisan baking became a quest to bake a great loaf of rye bread.  The art, science, and genuine magic of wood fired baking truly grabbed us and led to a pursuit of breads and pizzas with more complex flavors and sourdough cultures.  An interest in wood fired ovens was a natural progression of our passion for the best pizza.  We started Pizza By Fire so that we could bring our passion for the best artisan wood fired pizza to you for your special events. 

We make our own dough for both pizza and bagels, our own pasta, and just about everything else from scratch.  We source the highest quality ingredients from local and domestic sources.  We continually strive to refine our menu to include foods that complement our pizza and benefit from the use of our wood fired ovens.  We are based in Portland, Maine and serve much of the state including the lakes region and the mid and southern coasts.  We specialize in catering for private parties such as weddings, rehearsals, after parties, graduations, family reunions, birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, corporate events, charity fundraisers, neighborhood block parties, morning brunches, and have been a vendor for others such as farmers markets, brew fests, art fests, sporting events, and other public events.  

Pizza By Fire, a division of Maine Baking Company LLC, was established in 2011.  We have some interesting ideas for the future so please do check back in with us from time to time or follow us on Facebook or Instagram for updates, or see us on The Knot, or Wedding Wire.
