Pizza Pilgrims started off as a street food van in the middle of London and because of its popularity, has now got a place to call home in the heart of London’s food scene; Soho.
Climbing down the spiral staircase, you’ll be taken to a hidden, intimate restaurant that also strangely has a foosball table in the corner. It’s a beautiful, quirky, yet cosy restaurant that makes you feel part of the family.
The menu is short and concise where efforts are focused on simple ingredients rather than experimenting with flavours.
I opted for the Nduja pizza, which contains a speciality spicy Italian sausage that I’d not heard before called Nduja (pronounced Noo-ya). The sausage is fiery and not for the faint-hearted and is now a firm favourite of mine. The pizza itself is thin and a good size for a single person, however the toppings on my pizza could have been a bit more generous. I would have liked more Nduja as when slicing the pizza, some parts only had tomato and mozzarella however overall the simple flavours worked beautifully together.
Even though the pizza was filling I had to try the nutella ring. Nutella and ricotta in dough? What’s not to like? The ring was smaller than I expected but the nutella and ricotta was beautiful, smooth and more-ish and the dough was soft and still warm. If I could eat this everyday and not put on weight, I would. However I would advise sharing with a friend, especially if you managed to finish off your pizza as the nutella ring is quite heavy.
Pizza Pilgrims, was a delight to dine at. The atmosphere, passion and most of all the food, reflects the motivation the Pizza Pilgrim boys have to create a successful pizzeria in London but best of all is the price. You get delicious, authentic, Italian food that won’t break the bank and I know I’ll be re-visiting time and time again.
