It's a fire truck AND a pizza party!
Our truck, named Fausto, provides as much excitement to the party as does our pizza. This retired 1987 Ford C 8000 pumper fire truck has been converted to a pizza party on wheels! It has a wood burning oven, imported directly from Italy, that cooks at temperatures over 800'. Its other great features include satellite TV and the original, functioning deck water gun that kids love. Our truck turns up the degrees on any party! Whether you are having a house party, corporate event, or tailgating, call us and let us do the catering for you!
The Fire Truck Pizza Company was started by siblings Bruno and Rina D'Abramo with help from their spouses Kelly D'Abramo and Joe Gulasey. Being from a large Italian family, we know that good food, especially pizza, bridges generations and brings strangers together like family. We have been cooking wood fired pizza in our own home for 15 years. Our style combines old world technique with modern flavors that gives you a pie unlike any other. Our family parties continued to grow and our house only holds so many. So we decided to bring the pizza party to you and go mobile!

How much space does a fire truck party require?
Our truck, Fausto, is 30' long and will fit in most driveways. We need an 8 foot space from the side of the truck to set up our tables (this can be on the lawn). If you are unsure if we will fit, just ask and we can come by to take a look.
What makes the fire truck different from other food trucks?
We prepare and cook our pizza on the outside of the truck. This allows your guests to enjoy watching us prepare their pizza, using only the freshest ingredients, and the art of cooking in a wood burning oven. Our crews are always friendly, smiling and ready to assist in making your party a success! Our truck becomes the central gathering place and helps create a fun atmosphere. It turns your party into an event!
What does a party with the fire truck include?
All you can eat wood fired pizza! We supply all the ingredients and paper products. There is a satellite TV on the truck and can even play videos if requested prior to the an event. We keep the deck water gun filled and ready to launch. Kids from ages 1-99 love this! We bring children's fireman costumes on the truck for pictures. We can provide drinks, salad and gelato for an additional cost, just ask when booking your event.
Can we take pictures of the truck?
YES! We encourage you to take pictures with the truck. We think our truck is beautiful and hope you do too!
What if it rains, snows, or hails?...we do live in cleveland
The truck has an awning that extends out so we can continue to make pizza in light to moderate rain. We are not equipped to deal with heavy rain or high winds as the pizza will get wet. If this happens we will have to stop making pizza. If the weather is forecasted for heavy rains and you want to reschedule, we are happy to do that, due to weather conditions only.
The truck is a pumper truck, does it still spray water?
YES! Even though we removed the original water 750 gallon water tank, we installed a smaller tank and kept the deck water gun operational. Kids and adults love launching it. It makes for great fun at children and school events!
Do the lights and sirens work?
Yes they do! We even added special display lighting around the oven and awning. The lights create a great atmosphere at evening events.
How much time will you be at my event?
We base our time by number of guests. We allot 1 hour of serving time per 50 guests. We arrive approximately 30 minutes before your party to set up and take about 20 minutes to break down. If you have particular time constraints that you need to work with, just ask and we may be able to accommodate you. If you would like us to stay longer, we can do this for an additional charge.
What do you use to fuel the fire?
Our only fuel source is hard wood. We believe there is no other way to cook a traditional Italian pizza. Only this can give it the high temperature it needs to create a crispy crust on the outside and remain soft and airy on the inside.
how far in advance should i book a party?
Most parties are booked months in advance. If you know the date of your event then it isn't too early to book. Summer months and Saturdays are the first to book. You can save the date of your event with a small deposit and discuss details later.
how much does a fire truck pizza party cost?
Every pizza party is unique and we pride ourselves in adapting to your needs. Price will vary based on toppings, variety of pizzas, and number in attendance. We do have a minimum price and must adhere to this even if you do not have the minimum number of guests. Please take a look at our pricing page for more details.
What is the process for booking a party?
We require a $200 non refundable deposit to hold your date and time. A few weeks before the party we will finalize details. The remainder of the balance is due 10 days prior to the event. We accept all major credit cards, personal checks or cash.
what happens if I cancel my party?
If you change the date of your party within 14 days of your original date, no problem we will work with you to find a date that is available. If you cancel the party within 7-10 days prior to your event, we can refund 50% of funds or reschedule your event. If you cancel within the week of your event you forfeit your funds.
