About Us

Matt and Kristen sm.jpg

Having Fun Creating Pizza!

Husband and wife team Matt and Kristen Griffin are the chef/owners of Fire in The Kitchen Pizza.

After many years each in separate careers with greatly diverging schedules, they found a business that lets them spend time together while working. They both are very excited about this shared business venture.

Matt has been a self-employed carpenter his whole life.  Working with his hands and working on fine detail has always come easy to him.  After working long hours in the field, coming home to cook a home cooked meal was his way of releasing all the stress.  He has had a passion for cooking his whole life.  Pizza has always been his favorite thing to create in the kitchen.  After years of practice, he finally perfected his dough recipe. This discovery sparked his interest in sharing his creations with the world.

To feed his passion, Kristen bought him his first wood fired pizza oven - at only 12” x 14”, this oven changed everything.  A few months later, the little oven evolved into an true wood burning oven with a cook surface of 2’ x 3’ - the perfect midsize oven.  Flash forward one year to what we cook on today - a commercial sized wood burning oven that is fixed to a trailer.  At 7000 pounds, this oven is a beast.  

Kristen has been in the restaurant business her entire working career. As a bartender she developed her people skills and restaurant know how.  She has many hobbies but greatly enjoys sharing the passion for the mobile pizza business with her husband.

Both enjoy meeting new people and love to throw a party.  When you book a party with Fire in The Kitchen, they will be your chefs - they don’t send out a crew.
