451 Pizza is the newest concept in mobile Wood-Fired Pizza. Not Neapolitan, not exactly NY Style. Just Wood-Fired Pizza done right with fresh ingredients.

Ed Maurin and Craig Jones went to high school together. They didn’t really know each other outside of band (Ed was supposed to play woodwinds, but preferred hanging out with the percussion section, while Craig excelled in clarinet and saxophone).

They reconnected years later, thanks to social media. This time as Ed “Fast Eddy” Maurin and Craig “Grill Mayor” Jones. Each had pursued gourmet cooking by fire, but in different ways.

Ed had perfected pellet smokers and grills (the “Fast Eddy” series manufactured by Cookshack). Later, he experimented with high-heat designs, and turned his attention to creating a commercial-grade wood-fired pizza oven. Meanwhile, Craig was on a parallel path, cooking gourmet food over live-fire. He later became obsessed with wood-fired pizza. Their paths crossed when Ed designed a prototype commercial pellet wood-fired pizza oven and showed up in Craig’s driveway to test it out in the fall of 2016. Their talents fused.

Why the name “451?” According to Ray Bradbury (one of Craig’s favorite authors as a child) 451 is the temperature where wood or paper catches fire. Ed — an ex-fireman — has always been drawn to the number 451 because of the fire reference. And of course, both Ed and Craig are live fire cooks.

In other circles, the numeral combination of 451 has an entirely different meaning. Number 4 is the number of hard work, practicality, passion and drive. The number 5 resonates with making positive life choices, learning life lessons through experiences, motivation, and seeking new opportunities. And the number 1 stands for achievement and success, ambition, initiative and inspiration.

So the name of 451 Pizza only seemed natural for these two passionate and pyro-minded entrepreneurs obsessed with pizza – Wood-Fired Pizza, Done Right.
