– The Guy –
Who is The Pizza Guy? The short answer is Simon Walker. The long answer? Well, it’s still Simon Walker, but unsurprisingly he wasn’t born making pizzas (imagine that!). Along the way he’s been ‘The Apprentice Chef Guy’,’The Customer Relations Guy’,’The Radio Producer Guy’ and then, in March 2014 he decided to do something he really loved. So he bought a Landrover (now known as ‘Winnie‘) and converted it to hold a wood fired Pizza oven and The Pizza Guy was born.
Why wood fired pizza? Because it’s so simple. Simon’s a strong believer in keeping food as uncomplicated as possible: Take the finest ingredients, treat them with respect, cook them in the right way – and you can’t go wrong. Plus, let’s be honest, who doesn’t love pizza? And it’s this passion for simply delicious food that you can taste in every bite of a Pizza Guy pizza.
They say if you do something you love you’ll never work another day in your life. If that’s true, Simon Walker has retired… and he’s ready to come to your party.

Pizza is already brilliant. So how do you make it even better? Simple: you take all the ordinary elements and make each one extraordinary. Here’s how we do it at The Pizza Guy:
The dough is made using Caputo flour which is milled in Naples. This makes the middle thin and crispy and the crust fluffy and bubbly, with just the right amount of crisp and chew. It’s the Godfather of all flours. And with a base this good, we know you’ll find it hard to refuse (sorry!).
The sauce is made with D.O.P San Marzano tomatoes. Known as ‘Red Gold, these juicy tomatoes grow in the soil around Mount Vesuvius and are world famous for their unique sweetness. In fact, the Italians say “if it ain’t San Marzano it ain’t a true neapolitan pizza”. And they should know. (Although they probably don’t say ‘ain’t’).
Then we scatter on some creamy mozzarella and a handful of toppings, including our very own Italian Sausage recipe which we have locally made (because that’s how much we care). And it’s time to get fired up. It’s time for Winnie, the mobile wood fired pizza oven.
– The Oven –
Meet Winnie. She’s a Landrover Defender, and she’s hot. In fact, Winnie’s built in oven burns at around 500 degrees. This means she can cook a whole pizza in under two minutes. It’s this heat and speed which combine to create a unique, truly authentic wood fired flavour that’s impossible to recreate any other way. So don’t try this at home. Because frankly, there’s no point. And there’s also no need. Because when your mobile wood fired pizza oven is in a Landrover no party is out of bounds.
Team building exercise in the middle of a muddy field? No problem. Birthday bash in a trendy converted barn? Easy! Because wherever people are hungry Winnie will be there.
