Our passion is cooking! We've made our gourmet Neapolitan style thin-crust pizzas at wedding rehearsals, wedding receptions, birthday parties, corporate events, block parties, religious festivals, farmers markets and private dinners. We love bringing our unique mobile wood fired oven all over Whatcom County and beyond. Burning local maple and organic fruitwoods we fire our oven to 900 degrees. At that temperature our pizzas cook in about 90 seconds! We can produce a fresh, hot, delicious pizza just about every 30 seconds. What can we make for you?
We believe in making food that is as healthy as it is delicious by supporting local organic farmers and producers. We make our dough from a mixture of locally-milled organic whole wheat and unbleached white flour. We blend our own sauces and cheeses and source as many local, organic toppings as possible. We work with Terra Verde Farm, Spring Frog Farm, Bow Hill Blueberries, NW Gourmet Harvest, Rabbit Fields Farm, Hempler's Meats and other local producers.
Our package prices start at $14/person for unlimited pizza. Kids younger than 6 years old eat for free. We offer an all-you-can-eat pizza buffet that can quickly feed groups from 20 to 200. Our prices include compostable plates, napkins and flatware. We also offer egg-free Caesar salad, Caprese salad skewers, asparagus prosciutto rollups and ice-cold imported Italian soft drinks. We bring our own worktables and worktable linens. We can put together a feast for almost any budget. We bring the restaurant to you!

We could not be happier with our choice in Gusto Wood Fired Pizza to cater our wedding. From day one, it was fun and convenient to work with Russ and Terese. They welcomed us to taste from their catering menu down at the Farmers' Market, where we spent an hour laughing and eating amazing food! Within the first 10 minutes, we knew we were going to hire Russ and Terese. The hardest part about working with Gusto was finalizing a menu for our wedding, only because it was so tough to decide between all the delicious pizzas Gusto has to offer! The day of our wedding, Russ and team showed up early, set-up quickly, and were ready to start slingin' pizza as soon as we gave the word! All of our guests were fed quickly, including those with dietary restrictions. 3 months after our wedding, people are still raving about the amazing food we had! Thank you Gusto!Sent on 10/13/2016

I am so happy with this choice we made working with Russ and Gusto Wood Fired Pizza. We've never had to feed 100 people before and some of the catering companies basically scoffed at me when I told them our budget. I wanted to be able to do something that was interesting and tasted great, but that didn't cost half of our entire wedding budget. Even looking into family style italian/pasta, I was being quoted $70pp for food and service after fees and taxes.Sent on 10/28/2018
Enter Gusto Wood Fired Pizza. Russ and I bonded over our love of a pizzeria in Arizona called Pizzeria Bianco. We did caprese skewers and fruit/cheese/nut/smoked salmon plates for appetizers during cocktail hour and then a 5 pizza buffet with caesar salad. Russ let us do custom pizzas and we worked together on the menu: 1. Cheese 2. Pepperoni 3. Goat cheese, pistachio, prosciutto and balsamic 4. Sweet italian sausage and mama's lil peppers 5. Wild mushroom, garlic, white sauce. Most of the ingredients were sourced from local farmers that he knows from the Bellingham Farmer's market.
All of this came under my max catering budget, and he only required a $250 deposit.
Russ & his team showed up at the Lairmont Manor venue with a beautiful wood fired pizza over and slung pizzas during dinner very quickly. Everyone loved the pizza and I was complimented on how smoothly the pizza line went. My husband and I were delivered a heart shaped pizza at our table, which was surprising and wonderful. Russ boxed up about 7 whole pizzas and left them for us when they left too, which was such a treat! We all snacked on it during dancing.
I highly recommend for any event!
