We are Richard and Isabelle, we have been happily married for 25 years, we have 3 awesome children and live in beautiful Northumberland County. We love our little farm, with 2 sheep (Mr. Bean and Miss Daisie) 7 happy hens & our dog Biscuit.
In 2011, we were fortunate enough to be part of the team at a wonderful winery and vineyard in Hillier, P. E.C. There, we were trained by 3 wonderful chefs from esteemed restaurants: Chef Rocco of Pizzaria Libretto's, Daniel Usher of Ortolan Toronto as well as David Mattachioni of Mattachioni Restaurant & previously at Terroni'sThey taught us how to make authentic Neapolitan style thin crust pizza.
We always wanted to have a business together, something that would help teach our children work-ethics, support local farmers, create community working positions and grow something that we really enjoy sharing with as a family.
After such a great experience at the winery, meeting fantastic people, we realized we really love baking pizzas in the wood oven and making people happy with our food, so why not take it to the road ? And why not do it in style! We found a pristine 1938 Chevy Maple Leaf flat-bed truck, we had it outfitted with a copper wood fired oven built in Skowhegan, Maine and there it was - Vintage Pizza Pie Company was born in July of 2013 ! Our first event was at Cobourg Waterfront festival and we sold out every day :-)
Please inquire through our contact page about any other locations & further details for quotes.
( Catering is available from first week of May to First weekend in October only as the vintage truck gets put away in October for the winter months)
