The Pizza Gourmet
The Pizza Gourmet isn’t your average pizzeria. The restaurant offers takeout and delivery of pasta dishes (made with fresh pasta from Venda Ravioli), salads and pizzas, including their pre-assembled take and bake pizzas. Think creations like the Quattro Mushroom, with portabella, crimini, oyster and shiitake mushrooms, with grilled onions, tomatoes, garlic cloves, gorgonzola and truffle oil; or Joanie’s Chicken-Roni, with roasted chicken, pepperoni, pink vodka sauce, mozzarella and basil. Yum!

The Pizza Gourmet Wood Grilled Crusts
The restaurant’s pizzas – which are hand stretched and grilled over oak and maple hardwood at temperatures of 1800 degrees – became so popular that the owners launched The Pizza Gourmet Wood Grilled Crusts, a line of their own wood grilled pizza crusts that’s now available in grocery stores like East Side Marketplace and Whole Foods stores across the country.  Find their locations at WoodGrilledPizzaCrusts.com. 

The Catering Gourmet
The creative sensibility of The Pizza Gourmet extends to their full service catering company, The Catering Gourmet. Rhode Island’s premier catering company provides full service, on-site catering for large and small functions all over Southern New England. “All our food is made from scratch,” says co-owner Dave Goulart, describing everything from pizza dough and sauce to soups, sauces, salad dressings and bread. “It’s different and fresh.”  The company specializes in getting creative with clients, and making their wildest culinary dreams come true. “We’re super creative,” he describes. “We do a lot of custom work. We embrace world cuisine, and we often have fun and funky stations, like our signature wood grilled pizza station, where a chef is grilling fresh pizzas to order for guests.” Dave loves the challenge of getting a unique request from a client and then finding a way to make it work, and make it work to his very high culinary standards. 

Some examples of what they’ve done recently: falafel and schwarma stations, a mini fresh donut station, taco and fajita stations, an Asian stir fry and a sushi station. “Our signature ice cream sandwich station is a huge hit,” Dave says. For that, they have homemade cookies and frozen carrot cake slices, and guests choose their own ice cream filling. The Catering Gourmet is a full service catering company, providing everything from gourmet food to creative cocktails, full staff and event planning. In addition to catering private functions like weddings, birthday parties and bat mitzvahs, The Catering Gourmet caters corporate events on any scale, from 2 to 2000 people. They make daily deliveries for breakfast, lunch and dinner, for everything from short ribs to sushi, to Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut. They also offer a rewards program for frequent customers. 

Gourmet G Truck
An incredible touch to any great party is The Gourmet G Truck. It’s a favorite for before or after wedding snacks, as well as graduation parties, business lunches and even at festivals. The truck specializes in wood grilled pizza and barbecue, but can make anything you want it to. When it’s time to throw an event that’s totally unforgettable, give them a call. Find the truck on Facebook, or call The Catering Gourmet to discuss having it at your next event.
