Pizza Pilgrims has opened its doors in Exmouth Market, following three years of feeding the bustling streets of Soho…
Treating this famously foodie street to their authentic Neapolitan cuisine, brothers Thom and James Elliot will serve up the very best pizzas, including the revered and not-to-be-messed-with Margherita, the delicious Marinara, their very own popular Carbonara and spicy Nduja.
Exclusive to Exmouth Market, Pizza Pilgrims will also serve the Pizza Soup menu, a brand new lunchtime option comprising all their favourite pizza ingredients and serves them… as a soup. Poured piping hot from the market stall, the Pizza Soup will go down a treat with a pizza dough roll, infused with some fior de latte, olives and garlic. It’s like a little hot bowl of liquid Neapolitan pizza, just in time for winter.
With 40 comfy seats sprawled across two floors, and finally a postcode that doesn’t have a ‘W’ in front of it, Exmouth Market is an exciting new venture, catering to both the dine-in and takeaway crowd. And to balance the seriousness, the pizzeria is filled with retro arcade machines, nods to Tetris and a playlist with tunes rarely heard outside of 1990s television re-runs.
Last but not least, the pizzeria will also house the ‘World’s First Pizza Box Art Gallery’, where the great British public can draw/paint/collage onto one of their pizza boxes and the very best creations will receive a free pizza. All submissions will be considered, and a lucky few will be on sale for charity too. #pizzaboxart
Thom and James Elliot, Pizza Pilgrims founders, said: “We are really excited to be back on a market street. Street Food is in our DNA – it’s how we first started, badgering passers by on Berwick St Market. Which is why we’ve created a new menu especially for Exmouth lunch goers. Our Pizza Soup manages to combine our amazing pizza ingredients into a homely, easy to slurp down soup and roll. Bibs will sadly not be included. We also can’t wait to see what #pizzaboxart creations we receive. We think London should be big enough to accommodate both ourselves and the National Gallery.”
