A good pizza is simple. In theory. Good dough, wood oven, excellent toppings. Easy peasy.
And yet so many places get it wrong. But not Pizza Pilgrims.
The Exmouth Market branch is the third in London (after Soho and Kingly Court).
It’s just as good as the other two, and -miracle- it seems to be a bit less busy!
Once past the bright green door, you enter a temple for good dough.
Totally my kind of religion!
And a really cool temple it is, complete with a gallery of pizza boxes (you can even create your own if you’re in a creative mood)!
Downstairs, it’s all about honey-coloured wood and classic movie posters.
A really cozy, no-nonsense atmosphere.
And my favourite London pizzas.
Simple, quality ingredients on the best sourdough crust a pizza lover could dream of.
I have a fair few favourites, including the signature ‘Nduja, but went for the Salsiccia e Friarielli this time.
A white pizza topped with fresh fennel sausage, wild broccoli, fior di latte, parmesan, basil and chilli.
Drizzle with a bit of the good stuff.
Look at how happy it makes her! Proof if you ever needed one that chilli oil is the key to happiness!
Then grab a slice and tuck in!
And after that, you might consider getting another pizza… You know, for variety purposes…
And at that price, who would blame you?
