La Fortuna FAQ
How hot is the oven?
The oven is heated entirely with wood and runs between 900 and 1000 degrees.
What if it rains?
We can cook and serve in light to moderate rain. The bigger problem is keeping guests dry. We can work with you to create a plan in case of rainy weather - we can be very creative!
Can you set up at my location?
Probably - the key things required are vehicle access, a relatively flat and level area and access to electricity. Our overall footprint is about 13' x 17'.
Can we do a make-your-own party?
Yes! These are super fun events for groups of up to 25 people. Contact us for pricing.
Do you provide plates and napkins?
Yes. We serve on a sturdy, compostable plate. Due to the nature of our operation, it is not possible for us to serve on china plates. Cutlery is only provided if you contract us for salad and/or dessert.
Do you make anything other than pizza?
We offer simple salads served family-style, and a wide range of desserts. Salad and dessert service only available for groups under 100.
Can I arrange a tasting before I book your services?
Due to the involved nature of our set-up, we cannot accommodate request for private tastings. We encourage you to find us serving at a public event.
Will you work with other vendors at a big event?
Absolutely! We love working with other food trucks and caterers. Let us know what you have in mind so we can work out the details.
How long will you serve?
Our proposed service window is designed to let you guests eat in a leisurely fashion while still giving your party a cohesive feel. For a party of 100-150 people we recommend approximately 2 hours for pizza service.
How long have you been in business?
2017 marks our 8th year in business - that is a LOT of pizzas!
Do you have gluten-free crusts?
We have gluten everywhere, our food is likely not safe for anyone with celiac disease or a wheat allergy. For those people for whom gluten-free is a dietary choice, we offer a polenta dish that can be topped like any of the pizzas we are serving. We can accommodate up to 4 polenta servings per event, this must be arranged well before the event.
