SquareMeal Review of Pizza Pilgrims Soho

"One of London's best pizzas!" trumpets one ardent fan, and we're inclined to agree with his verdict. Occupying a prime corner spot, Pizza Pilgrims started out as brothers Thom and James Elliot in a van on a pilgrimage across Italy to find a pizza worth worshipping. The pair clearly succeeded in their mission because their covetable and crisp Neapolitan sourdough pizzas belie the capabilities of a cramped open kitchen. "Excellent authentic ingredients" go into toppings such as portobello mushroom and truffle or margherita and n'duja, with back-up from sides of smoky tomatoes with buffalo mozzarella or piquant marinated artichoke hearts with prosciutto. Lemon sorbet or gelato from nearby Gelupo are spot on for dessert, while the drinks range from Italian and British craft beers to cocktails in tumblers, plus the specially created lemon Pococello. "Brilliant value for money" too.

So delicious! (Maybe not quite as good as Neapolitan pizza, but that's a high standard.) It's always a good sign when you walk into a pizza place and the stone oven is fired up and working for all to see. Very nice service, as well. Definitely the best pizza I've had in London.

Pizza is a great comfort food, but only a few places do it well. I've had it drummed into me by my Italian colleagues that a wood oven fire is the secret to getting a good pizza to a great pizza. Pizza Pilgrims really spits in the face of such comments, with their attention to detail on traditional quality ingredients, and not a wood oven fire but a gas scorching furnace that cooks pizzas in mere minutes. Whether take away or eating in the Pilgrim boys always deliver. Thanks to their pilgrimage to Italy to learn the secrets from the masters, they have taken back what they have learnt and still use italian flour and tomatoes for the foundation of all their pizzas. The 'nduja (a spicy sausage) my particular favourite. Lovely crust, gorgeous mozarella, little bit dreamy really, and for under £10. It's one of the few places I know to actually have prosecco on tap aswell! It's testament to them they opened PP opposite the Jazz@pizza express restaurant, and still seem to have people bursting out of the place, so full it gets on busy nights. It's worth noting how friendly the staff are here, I always feel welcome when I walk in. Downstairs is very humble with plastic green coverings on tables, and a free table football for afters, that is if you manage to escape the temptation of glorious nutella pizza ring. For it's pricing, location and atmosphere this is my favourite places to get pizza in town.
