Non-traditional weddings are becoming more common in this age of individuality. "Doing 

it the way it's always been done" is not always accepted by those who wish to reflect 

their own style and what they care about. 

Wood fired ovens create a unique experience in the world of cuisine. The fl ames deep 

within the wood fired oven catch your attention. The aroma of the burning oak draws you 

closer. Simple as it may be, the process of baking the pie is not only in the cooking; it is a 

performance of which families never tire. The intrigue and anticipation makes the fresh-

out-of-the-oven moment that much better and wood fired ovens bring flavor forward unlike any other oven. 

To create a memorable culinary event that not only you, but your wedding guests, family, 

and friends will never forget, you might want to consider serving wood fired pizza. We 

bring our mobile wood fired oven on site to your wedding, rehearsal dinner, or bachelor/

bachelorette party and serve your guests Northwoods-inspired artisan pizzas. Our expe-

rienced pizzaiolo and his staff  are passionate about pizza. That's why every item on the 

menu is prepared by hand. Fresh ingredients, hand-chopped vegetables, roasted peppers, 

homemade sauces, locally-sourced, and specially prepared hand-pulled pork, chicken 

and our secret ingredient sausage are featured on our diverse menu. The wild rice used is 

hand-harvested in the Northwoods. 

Made fresh for your event, our highly-praised dough is hand-rolled. Lovingly created on 

site, each pie is hand-stretched and topped to create the perfect thin crust pizza. You can 

taste the love infused in the homemade tomato, pesto, bbq, and roasted garlic oil sauces 

that begin the pie creation. Right out of our 900� oven, our pizzas are hot and fresh for 

you and your guests.  

To complete the meal, we offer wood fired appetizers, fresh salads with homemade dress-

ings, and dessert pizzas. The bacon wrapped jalape�o poppers and prosciutto wrapped 

asparagus bundles crisp up from the radiant heat of the oven. The light char on the stuff ed 

mushrooms deepens the earthy fl avor. Greens grown by local farmers are drizzled with 

made-from-scratch ranch or Caesar dressings, or homemade pure maple syrup vinaigrette, 

prepared specially for your event. Fresh mozzarella balls and cherry tomatoes are 

incorporated into our basil pasta salad and caprese skewers. 

We embrace the region in which we live. Along with the mobile wood fired oven, 

the pizzas, appetizers, and salads come together in a Northwoods presentation 

which includes our log home-look counter, plus other Northwoods d�cor. We love 

living up north and everything we do is a reflection of us. 

This is your special day; a reflection of you and your individual style. Everyone 

loves pizza. Provide your guests with a flavorful culinary experience they will 

always remember with a mobile wood fired oven.

Pizzaiolo and keeper of the fire, Rick Herman is the owner of Log Home Wood Fired Pizza. Based out of McGregor, MN, he serves the northland and occasionally throughout the state.
