The Advanced Wood Fired University is your opportunity to learn from the best in the industry. This workshop is perfect for the intermediate to advanced in the business, it’s specifically designed for those who want to raise their Fire Within business to the next level.

We hosted our first Wood Fired University workshop in 2009. 8 years later, we have seen thousands of graduates pass through the Wood Fired University doors and successfully enter the mobile food industry. Wood Fired University will give you the skills to use a mobile wood-fired oven, and the knowledge to avoid most common unforeseen mistakes.

Wood Fired University is designed to walk you through all of the stages of starting your own wood fired pizza oven catering business. You will learn specific preparation and cooking techniques used in the catering business as well as how to take your hobby and create a business strategy around it. Practice using the equipment and techniques proven for success in the mobile pizza catering business and receive advice from professionals in the field. Real mobile caterers from across the US will teach you how to take your passion for pie and turn it into a successful business strategy. No previous experience necessary.
