GreenBox Spotlight: Chef Jeff & Skinny Pines

We love our pizza all sorts of ways: Deep-dish, New York-style, Sicilian…even Grandma-style slices (aka Nonna Pizza. We’re serious).

But today, we’re putting the spotlight on our new number one: Skinny.

Actually, their official name is Skinny Pines Brick Oven Caterer, and they’re just too cool not to blog about.  Based out of Fairfield County, CT, “From farm to pizza” is their name, and a mobile trailer (with a custom built wood-fire oven) is their game.

That’s right – Skinny Pines is a self-proclaimed mobile caterer, jumping around from one local farmer’s market to the next, tossing Neapolitan-style pizzas with the freshest ingredients possible. When catering an event, Chef Jeff & his team bring along seasonal toppings that they’ve sourced locally; in other words, no two pizzas are exactly alike – and always guaranteed delicious.

Their “Bianca” is a customer favorite: a white pizza with 50/50 mozzarella & provolone, local rosemary from Sport Hill Farm, oil-cured Taggiasca olives & extra virgin olive oil. The “Grande” is a Skinny Pines original – a combination of shitake mushroom, bacon, onion, sage & mozzarella. Hungry yet?

Of course, Skinny Pines are loyal users of the GreenBox, and we couldn’t be prouder to have them on our roster. They consider sustainability in every aspect of their business – from their biodegradable cups & plates to their environmentally-friendly wood-burning oven.

In the end, it all comes down to passion. Passion for pizza, the land, and the people. Skinny Pines… you’ve got our hearts.

To get your paws on some Skinny, head on over to their Facebook and Twitter pages. They’ll be delighted to have you.
