BASE FOOD BY FIRE PIZZA TRUCK

 

OUR STORY

Base Woodfired Pizzas is a family business created in late 2010 by Chris,

Andy, Gill and Rod Thomson. What started out as a way of enjoying good food with

family and friends evolved into a business venture largely due to the many

positive comments made about the pizzas. As a family they had spent time

gathered around their own woodfired oven at home trying out different

flavour combinations until they felt they had got it right. It became a social

event with the neighbours often joining in to share freshly baked woodfired

pizzas....

“Immediately after the September earthquake we found ourselves cooking in

our woodfired oven for all our neighbours due to the power outage and that

was when the business idea was born.”

First came the Mobile woodfired oven concept – fast food with a difference

that was well received at many events and festivals all over Canterbury.

“Base” credits the SCIRT World buskers festival for launching them into the

wider Christchurch community.

Following a conversation between Chris and Paul Lonsdale , the then Re:Start

manager ,“Base”

took up the offer of a spot in the food court at the mall in May of 2010, initially

with the mobile unit and then with a custom fitted shipping container –

freeing up the mobile unit to continue to attend events and functions

Canterbury wide.

Every inch of the 10 foot high cube shipping container was utilised –

centrepiece was a large wood burning pizza oven imported from Italy. Bricks

recycled from demolished Christchurch buildings line the walls to give a

feeling of permanence and stability. It was a nod to the Christchurch of old and

a symbol of hope for the new Christchurch.

All ingredients for the pizzas are fresh and locally sourced therefore

enabling Base to support other Canterbury businesses– simply the best NZ

has to offer. 

When restart mall came to an end the Base family were the pivotal part of their new home Little High Eatery.

Here we operate 7 days a week alongside 7 other family owned eateries.
