Pie Pedals

Pie Pedals has been burning since 2012, and our mission is to serve delicious wood-fired pizza out of our oven setup at the most unexpected spacetimes. At the Big Burn (in BRC) our setup is portable, with the ovens usually on wheels and towed by a bicycle. At regionals, the ovens remain stationary and are set up as an art installation in and of itself, and definitely a spectacle when pizza-making is in full swing.
