Pizza Pilgrims - Best Pizza In London

Fit pizza. Made by Springsteen fans. It's time to talk about Pizza Pilgrims.

As you may have seen, I'm verging on obsessed with Italy. Yes yes it's a beautiful country, but the main reason I love it? The food. Carbs. I love carbs. Life is too short to not eat them.

I can't get to Italy each time I crave a pizza, so instead I head to Pizza Pilgrims in Soho, London.

The Pizza Pilgrims are two brothers (Thom and James) who headed to Italy buy an Piaggio Ape van (jealous) and learn about making pizza. They stuck an oven in the back of the van (very jealous), and started selling kick ass pizza on the streets of London. They've since gone from strength to strength, just opening their second permanent restaurant.

I will add at this point that Thom Elliott is a big Bruce Springsteen fan. BIG. This is where I'd tell Bruce to go for pizza in London (assuming Thom wouldn't mob him). 

It's also where we should ALL go for pizza in London. Because it's ludicrously good.

Less of me, I think the pictures do the talking.

Gooey oozy cheesy carby dough. I love dough. 

That's a deep fried calzone. I know. It's stuffed with porchetta and tastes even better than it looks.

You'll be very very happy eating at either. And you'll probably hear some Springsteen. And leave even happier. I always do.

National Burger Day 2014 (Review-ish)

Remember that time I ate five burgers in one day? Course you don't. I do though, my jeans still don't fit.

That was National Burger Day 2013, a very exciting new day created by the people behind Mr Hyde. NBD is celebrated in two ways - either attending a massive outdoor burger event in London, or heading to one of these delicious restaurants for a 20% discount on their burgers. Following the event last year, I reviewed all the burgers in the most sensible way possible - with Bruce Springsteen songs.

Unfortunately (Sad Eyes) at this year's event I didn't get to try as many burgers. But the ones I did get to were Magic... 

The first - and probably the best - was from Breddos, two lovable chaps serving up delicious sliders - the below is a beef and bone marrow patty with smoked chipotle short rib. It. Was. Brilliant.

Thanks to the grey August weather and numerous beers, the picture quality quickly went down hill. But I went on to try a pineapple jam burger from Disco Bistro, a very rich cheesy burger from Le Bun, and an Indian street kitchen take on a burger from Roti Chai.

One burger I didn't get to was the pizza burger special from Bleecker St BurgerI can't direct you to a post about Bleecker St on here, which is unforgivably slack because Zan (The Boss of Bleecker) serves up one of the best, if not THE best, cheeseburger in London. More on that soon.

National Burger Day will be back again next year, keep an eye on the site for details.
