Our Story

Tilford Burton was a simple man who enjoyed simple pleasures, particularly entertaining family and friends. He loved great food, and at least twice a year he and his wife, Lois, hosted huge fish fries for their community with fish Tilford himself caught in the ponds and lakes of central Indiana.

And so today, Burton’s delectable legacy lives on through Tilford’s Wood Fired Pizza. His grandson Steve has expanded on Tilford’s desire to bring people together over great food and turned it into an opportunity for you to take into your community.

We take great pride in saying, every Tilford’s pizza recipe we use is completely unique and of our very own creation. And with our open-on-all-four-sides custom-designed mobile pizza kitchens we invite you to see what goes into – and onto – making yours. From start to blazing finish we invite you to watch as your pizza is individually hand-crafted then lovely baked in our 900º brick oven. Every ingredient and every topping is the freshest, the finest and always of the highest quality available. After all, this is the only way we know of to make our truly great pizzas.
