Maple is on the Menu at Mountain Fire Pizza
After working as a draftsmen for many years, Todd Ross decided it was time for a career change. With help from his wife Ellen, he started a mobile wood-fired pizza business called Mountain Fire Pizza. It started as a mobile business, with Todd and Ellen making and selling pizzas at farmer’s markets and country fairs all over northern New Hampshire. “We have always loved pizza and have been experimenting with different recipes since 1988, when we first met,” said Todd. Soon they were selling up to 120 pizzas a week. “With a mobile business, you can only operate three to four months out of the year, so we decided to open the Mountain Fire Pizza restaurant in Gorham,” said Todd.
Mountain Fire pizzas are cooked in a 750 to 1,000-degree oven heated with a hardwood fire, which adds a distinct, smoky flavor. All pizzas are made to order using the freshest ingredients available, including Fuller’s Sugarhouse pure maple sugar.
One of their famous specialties is the sweet and savory Maple and Bacon Pizza, made with butter, cheese, crumbled bacon and Fuller’s Sugarhouse pure maple sugar. “I first met the Fuller brothers during the Lancaster Fair; we were set up next to them,” said Todd. “Every day they came by to have pizza and I jokingly said that I should make a maple pizza. Dave’s eyes lit up, and right away he gave me some maple candy to make a pizza. We experimented using the candy and then finally using Fuller’s Sugarhouse maple sugar. The result was amazing!” The Maple Bacon pizza was invented and added to Mountain Fire Pizza’s menu.
The Maple and Bacon pizza received national attention after an Associated Press reporter and his son tasted the pizza. He was so surprised that he liked it that he wrote an article titled, “Bacon, maple sugar, and butter make the perfect pizza.”
Mountain Fire Pizza was ranked #1 pizza place by Onlyinyourstate.com and #3 Best Pizza Place in the state of New Hampshire by WMUR, and has received many accolades from customers. Mountain Fire also makes a delicious cheesecake with Fuller’s Sugarhouse pure maple syrup.
Todd values his great relationship with Fuller’s Sugarhouse and regularly purchases their maple sugar and syrup. Adds Todd, “The maple bacon pizza would never have happened if we hadn’t met the Fullers!
