    I'm going to go ahead and say something potentially offensive. I don't like pizza. I wanted to get the apology in early as I know how strongly people feel about pizza. But I just don't get it. I love bread, I adore cheese but pizza - meh, not so much. Don't get me wrong, I'll eat it..hell I've even done a pizza making class and enjoyed it - I just wouldn't chose it if given a menu, and I definitely wouldn't chose to go somewhere with pizza in the name.

    So why is someone who doesn't like pizza writing about a pizza joint? Because.....well, I think I now like pizza. (note to self: stop using the word pizza!)

    If you live in London and you're a fan of the italian flat stuff (see i'm trying not to say it), I'm sure you'll have heard of Pizza Pilgrims before....

On arrival back home, full of knowledge, they converted a Piaggio Ape van into a mobile oven and started selling napoli-inspired street food to hungry Londoners. Since then, they've gone from strength to strength opening permenant spots in Dean Street and Kingly Court, Soho.

    I found myself in the Kingly Court branch recently when the restaurant I wanted to go to over the road was fully booked and I got dragged along - but boy am I am I glad that it was!

    Pizza PIlgrims do pizza the way you'd expect to find it in Italy. Flat, crispy and generous on the toppings and cheese. I went for Aubergine & extra chilli which didn't disappoint and to be honest, any restaurant that serves moretti is on to a winner with me! So Big thumbs up from me, well done Pizza Pilgrim's you've made me a new pizza fan.
