Street-food brand Pizza Pilgrims is to open its second permanent site in London's Kingly Court near Carnaby Street, in late July.
Pizza Pilgrims started in a street van and opened its first permanent site a year ago in Dean Street. It specialises in serving woodfired pizzas in authentic Neapolitan style, with toppings such as marinara, margherita, n'duja sausage, and Portobello mushroom and truffle.
Pizza Pilgrims' signature desserts, including Bocca di Lupo gelato ice-cream, sfogliatelle (Neapolitan pastries) and Nutella Pizza Ring, will also feature, and the site also plans to serve Terrone Coffee, roasted in Hackney.
Aiming to create an authentic Italian feel, the venue will also have a table football game, play 1990s songs, and have arcade games, as well as an outdoors eating area.
Co-founders Thom and James Elliot (son of late pub owner, Nick Elliot) started Pizza Pilgrims in a travelling van in Berwick Street Market in 2011, after road tripping around southern Italy perfecting the pizza-making craft. The van is still in operation.
Along with their permanent sites, they have now published a book called Pizza Pilgrims: Recipes from the Backstreets of Italy, which includes traditional Italian recipes found on their more recent Italian travels in the now-famous van.
