Welcome to Bull & Basil

Welcome to Bull & Basil where we use our amazing wood fired oven on wheels to cater private events in the Capital District area.  We’ll also be at breweries and other public events.  We make fresh, hot and fast wood fired pizza using only the finest ingredients. Passion, culinary artistry, and bringing people together around our unique and stunning fire stone stainless and core ten steel oven is our mission. Whether an intimate party, a corporate gathering or a large reception, Bull & Basil is your source for amazing food and a memorable experience.

We start with our perfectly blended pizza dough using a unique mixture of flours that are risen slowly to maximize flavor and texture. Our pies are then topped with simple produce, meats, sauces and cheeses. With so many possibilities and seasonal trends, we’d love to work with you on your favorites. Our mobile oven hits temperatures of 750 degrees and above for a quick, perfectly charred soft, chewy & flavorful dough. Served by our friendly crew, it’s an indulging experience you’ll never forget. 

The Oven

At all Bull & Basil Wood Fired Pizza events the center of attention is this beautiful oven from Skowhegan, ME.  The Le Panyol 120 has an inside diameter of 4’, is best in class at maintaining 750 degree and above temperature and delivers fast, fresh, hot pizza in about two minutes.  There is no oven like it in New York.

Our Mission

For the past decade, we’ve been cooking and enjoying backyard wood fired pizzas with friends and family.  These memorable experiences are what have led to the launch of Bull & Basil Wood Fired Pizza.  We’ll bring these same experiences to you.  Bull?  It’s in our name.  Basil?  It’s synonymous with quality wood fired pizza.  Simple ingredients on an amazing pillow crust.
