Here's what our clients have to say about us:

"Gusto’s was the perfect dinner vendor for our summer wedding! Lindsay and Zach were wonderful to work with, and of course the pizza and appetizers were absolutely delicious. The freshly made croutons from the pizza dough top all other croutons in existence. We had so many of our guests telling us how much they loved the food, and the wood-fire pizza oven was so cute and added such a great charm to our outdoor venue. Highly recommend! Thank you Gusto’s!"

-Kristina and Rob, Issaquah, WA, 2023

"Lindsay and her team at Gusto did a fantastic job catering our outdoor wedding! Lindsay and her husband, Zach were so friendly and easy to work with. I'm from the East Coast, and it is truly hard to find amazing pizza in the PNW, well, we found it!! I love that Gusto makes their own dough, and uses local and fresh ingredients, you can tell when you take the first bite! We got 4 pizzas for around 125 individuals, the Kimchi and the Cuban were our absolute favorites, but guests raved about the Rachel, too! We would work with Gusto any time, and I can't wait to come visit the farmers market to eat more! I'd highly recommend it for any style wedding."

-Kayla and Dave, Snohomish, WA 2023

"What a fun alternative to the usual sit down meal at a wedding! We hired Gusto Wood Fired Pizza to cater our wedding with their mobile wood fired oven. Everyone RAVED about how good the pizza was, as well as the salad and bread sticks. All were surprised at how FAST the service was. They are able to cook a pizza in two minutes, so keeping the pizza trays full was no problem. The pizza oven brought a more fun and unique element to the atmosphere, yet the setup still had elements of class and order. It was the perfect combination that we were looking for. They also cooked up 5-6 pizzas before they left, for people to nosh on throughout the rest of the reception, which was really appreciated by our guests. They were really easy to work with and communication was great. We would definitely choose Gusto again!"

-Susan, Ferndale, WA, 2023

"The pizza was delicious, the service was wonderful, and who doesn’t love pizza at a wedding? They were also very accommodating for our gluten free and other allergen guests, so everyone could enjoy!"

-Miranda, Bellingham, WA, 2023

"Having pizza for breakfast! It's seriously the best pizza we have ever eaten! We are beyond grateful for all you have done for us! You made our day so special and yummy!"

-Ashley and Trenton, Sedro-Woolley, WA 2022

"We had Gusto cater our July wedding, and I cannot recommend them highly enough! Through two postponements, Russ was professional, helpful, responsive, and kind. It was hard to narrow down the final catering menu but I don't think you could go wrong with any selection. Our guests loved the pizza, and Russ and his staff were awesome from start to finish. They easily accommodated a variety of dietary restrictions. It was such a perfect part of our wedding day and we would use Gusto again for any event. Thank you Russ and team!!"

-Rosie Ellison, Seattle, WA


"Since my fiancé and I met at a pizza restaurant in Alaska,  we thought it would be perfect to have woodfired pizza for our elopement. When we first reached out, Russ responded quickly with all the information we were looking for. It was a bit of an "outside the box" wedding and reception, where everything was a little remote and the location a bit unfamiliar. Even with the obstacles encountered, everything was so beautiful and professional. We were a bit late due to unforeseen circumstances coming down from Mount Baker, but when everyone arrived appetizers were ready to go and everyone devoured them, with pizza to follow! The woodfire oven was just the rustic touch we were looking for, and Russ and his staff were so helpful and flexible. Everything was delicious and clearly labeled (everyone particularly loved the jalapeno poppers and the array of pizza) and we enjoyed all the leftovers and extra pizza provided for days afterwards. While we don't live in Bellingham, we can't wait to come up and visit at some point and eat some more pizza at the farmer's market and say hello. We couldn't have asked for a better catering experience for our elopement, and would absolutely recommend Gusto Wood Fired Pizza!"

-Kat Marie Koenig, Seattle, WA


"Working with Gusto Wood Fired Pizza was an absolute pleasure, they were the perfect caterer for our wedding.  When we reached out to Gusto to inquire about our wedding, they immediately replied with information and suggestions on a menu.  From there, Russ went above and beyond to make sure all of our vegetarian and vegan guests were taken care of.  The day of the wedding they showed up on time and came prepared. They even laser sketched a pizza paddle with our engagement picture on it. The pizza they cooked was amazing, every pizza was cooked to perfection! We would highly recommend Gusto Wood Fired Pizza and would hire them again in a heartbeat for our next event.”

-Joey Jordan, Mount Vernon, WA


"Gusto Pizza added personality to our wedding.  Russ was communicative and full of ideas from the first call.  He knew what he was doing and it was one less stressor in prepping for the event.  The guests loved his out-of-sight food  he and his friendly staff prepared.  Yes, I'd do it again and hope he's not booked when daughter gets married."

-Julie Steele, Bellingham, WA

“Russ and his team were a real pleasure to work with! There was clear communication before the event which put us at ease for the day of. What a spectacular sight to have our guests watch their delicious pizzas be cooked right in front of our eyes! An amazing value having Gusto cater our wedding and wouldn’t even blink before recommending them to friends or booking them again. Cheers!”

-Meredith O'Malley, Bellingham, WA

"All the guests cheered when Russ and his pizza oven drove up for the wedding dinner. The food was on time, plentiful, very tasty, and Russ easily accommodated our no limits plus vegan, dairy- and gluten-free menu. Friendly and accessible, we and our guests enjoyed Russ and his team very much. Highly recommend."

-Becky Ellison, Bellingham, WA

"When my husband and I were thinking about food for our wedding reception, we knew that we wanted wood fired pizza. Although we weren't able to try the pizza in advance due to the Covid-19 pandemic, I trusted that Gusto would use the highest quality, local ingredients available and we were right. We are absolutely THRILLED with how the four different types of pizza (pepperoni, margherita, sausage, pesto) and caesar salad turned out. We would hire Gusto again in a heartbeat for another event and highly recommend this food truck. We've had so many guests compliment the pizza over and over again. Russ was wonderful to work with and was always available to chat if questions came up."

-Alex & Angelo Mirante, Bellingham, WA

"We hired Gusto Wood Fired Pizza for my wedding in June 2021 and we couldn't have made a better decision! The menu options were almost overwhelming because he offers everything you can think of (and all the custom options you could dream of!).  We were initially a little nervous meeting all the dietary restrictions of our guests, but Russ allowed each pizza to be altered during the wedding to be dairy free / vegan / gluten free upon request. He took all of our stress away to make everyone happy.  We loved the goat cheese with blueberries, sausage, BBQ chicken and pesto. My guests and I couldn't get enough!  The grilled asparagus and caprese skewers were a hit for our hors d'oeuvres. We were so happy with how the pizza oven fit in with our outdoor venue. Russ was so accommodating with everything we asked for and so generous bringing us our special pie to make sure us newlyweds got dinner. And the whole team was professional and down right nice! Thank you so much for making our wedding special!"

-Annie Fredricks & Evan Malina, Seattle, WA

"From the moment we met Russ, we knew we had picked the right caterer for our wedding. Our first meeting was for our scheduled tasting at the Bellingham Farmer’s Market. When we arrived, Russ invited us to sit down and try 2 different types of pizza. He also let us sample a new appetizer he was working on. The food was incredible! He encouraged us to stay as long as we liked and checked in with us periodically to see if we had questions. Russ was a pleasure to work with throughout the wedding planning process. He happily accommodated all our dietary requests. He provided gluten-free and vegan pizza at very reasonable prices. He was also willing to serve the dressing and croutons for the salad on the side. It was easy to communicate with Russ via email. He responded quickly and cheerfully answered all our questions. All our guests raved about the food. They loved the caprese salad skewers and the stuffed peppers that we had for appetizers. We chose a 4-flavor pizza package with caesar salad for dinner. Our guests were very pleased with the selection, quality and amount of food. A few weeks before the wedding Russ asked my husband and I to choose our favorite flavor of pizza. We were pleasantly surprised to find to a personal, heart shaped pizza waiting for us at our sweetheart table when we sat down for dinner. It was delicious! After the dinner service was done, Russ and his crew put out extra pizzas so our guests could continue to eat throughout the night. He even provided pizza boxes. Many guests were thrilled to take some pizza home with them. My husband and I snagged a couple boxes on our way out; even served cold the pizza was delicious. I couldn’t imagine having a better caterer for our wedding. Russ and his team are an incredible group of people. They are very kind, helpful and passionate about what they do. That passion really shows in their food. I highly recommend using Gusto Wood Fire Pizza to cater your next event. It will make it one to remember!"

-Talisa & Garritt Cook, Bellingham, WA


Our experience with Gusto wood-fired pizza exceeded our expectations. We booked with them in summer of 2019 at the Bellingham farmers market and instantly knew they were the best choice to cater our wedding. When we had to change plans for our July 2020 wedding we were so bummed to not have gusto at our wedding. But, months later, in may 2021 we held our postponed wedding reception and were lucky enough to have Gusto wood-fired pizza a part of our day. (Dream come true!) And it was a HIT! Not only did everyone love the delicious pizza at our celebration - the experience with the Russ & Therese & their staff was so positive. They are thoughtful, fun, and provide amazing service. I had friends and family asking how they could get their pizza again in the future! 

We must add, they were so comforting and flexible during the time of unknowns and postponing due to Covid-19. It felt like we really worked together to support each other during the difficult time. We would recommend Gusto wood-fired pizza to anyone who loves great food, great service, and an overall fun experience for a wedding or event! You will NOT regret it. Thank you Gusto wood-fired pizza for the best pizza and even better memories!" 

-Nicole & Hunter Trueax, Kirkland, WA

"Using Gusto Wood Fired Pizza for our wedding was perfect! Russ was so easy to work with, communicative and helped us problem solve a difficult venue setup. His staff were professional and timely, not to mention the food was fantastic! Our guests said they loved the pizza and salad and that it was still hot when they sat down to eat. We loved having the wood fired oven at the wedding for people to see and interact with Russ's team. Russ made sure he delivered on what we wanted, and he certainly did! Thank you again- we loved having you there!"

-Emily Carpenter and Evan Vaughn, Vancouver, WA

"My husband and I met Russ at the farmer's market. We tried his pizza for the first time and it was amazing to say the least. When our wedding day came Russ was on time and made exactly what we wanted PLUS some and even had back up table cloths for us. 

Everyone at our wedding loved the food. It was definitely one of the highlights of the party. Gusto Pizza we're great to work with and EXCEEDED our expectations. Thank you so much for working with us and making our day that much better. Everyone loved your food! 

If we ever have a party again we're coming back:)"
