“Napoli inspired street food” in the heart of London's ever buzzing Soho? You mean, fresh made pizza like they do in the southern Italian city of its delicious origin? Oh yeah!
Pizza Pilgrims is a newbie street vendor at the long running Berwick Street Market in Soho. Traditionally a fresh produce market, Berwick has in the past couple of years caught on to current foodie trends and are giving more and more space to vendors who offer takeaway meals. Vietnamese banh mi sandwiches? Moroccan dishes to go? A good old fashioned hot dog? There seems to be something for every taste during the during at Berwick Street. The market is on from noon to about 4 p.m. Monday to Friday. You can find Pizza Pilgrims there those same days.
A business founded by two brothers, Thom and James Elliot, Pizza Pilgrims offers a simple range of made from scratch pizzas using quality ingredients and traditional preparation, learned on a recent pilgrimage to Napoli. The visit to Napoli was just a pizza pit stop though, as the duo was actually in Italy to pick up a classic Piaggio Apé three wheeled van converted into a mobile pizza oven. After getting the van in what the brothers have described as the southern tip of Italy, they took six weeks to drive it all the way back to England.
Decent pizza might not sound like that big of a deal, but it's a relatively new occurrence here in London … and as simple as it sounds, just being able to grab a fresh made pie on the street is actually kind of a novel idea. Luckily, with Pizza Pilgrims it's a delicious one as well! All of Pizza Pilgrims' pizzas are made right in front of you and are served hot from a stone oven installed in their van. Priced around £5 to £10 (roughly between $7 and $16), it's a bargain on the spot – especially in this very central part of town.
If you don't manage to catch 'em on Berwick Street, PP's pies are the stars of Forzawin, a new summer rooftop supper club “with awesome city views” in East London. Forzawin is on every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening until the end of September and promises “unique entertainment and specially selected drinks … as well as offerings from a specially built “Pompeii pizza oven.”
