5 things the Pizza Pilgrims are doing better in their new spot
Because nothing says "pilgrims" like staying in a fixed location, the folks behind PP have finally upgraded their 'za-slinging van and opened up a permanent bricks and mortar in Soho. How are they exploiting the upgrade? Let's take a look…
1. More, better pizzas
The van only had two, maybe three, ever-changing toppings per day. The resto now has ten menu regulars, all 90 second flash-cooked in their newer, larger, hotter oven (it goes all the way to 650 degrees), including favourites like this marinara…
… and this N'duja…
… plus newness like this fennel sausage and broccoli number. You'll also find an artichoke, ricotta, and smoked garlic-covered disc, as well as one loaded with portobello 'shrooms, and truffles.
2. Stuff that isn't pizza
Their pizza selection wasn’t the only thing that got an upgrade -- salads and snacks now have earned themselves a spot, such as this Panzanella (a traditional Tuscan bread salad), and a Fennel Grissini with prosciutto.
Modern plumbing and refrigeration (!) means that they can now put out desserts too, such as these mini gelato cones (from Gelupo, naturally), or a Nutella pizza ring. That's right. Nutella pizza ring.
They've got red/ white wine and Prosecco on tap, and they're serving their draught Italian beer in frozen mugs.
Finally, as an added benefit, you can actually sit down in this huge, bi-level space, because sometimes you just want to stay in a fixed location yourself.
