LONDON EATERIES – Pizza Pilgrims To Open In Exmouth Market This November

After three years of feeding the bustling streets of Soho, Pizza Pilgrims are opening a brand new pizzeria in Exmouth Market.

This famously foodie street will now be treated to their authentic Neapolitan pizza, including the revered and not-to-be-messed-with Margherita and Marinara, and their very own popular Carbonara and spicy Nduja creations.

It’s also where they’re serving a brand new lunchtime only Zuppa menu from a market stall, alongside their usual take away pizza fayre. It combines all their favourite pizza ingredients and serves them… as a soup. Together with a roll to dip in – made from their pizza dough, with some fior de latte, olives and garlic baked in – the zuppa is like a little hot bowl of liquid Neapolitan pizza. Exmouth lunch breaks just got even more delicious.

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 will be filled with retro arcade machines, nods to Tetris and a playlist with tunes rarely heard outside of 1990s television re-runs.

It’s also where they’re launching the ‘World’s First Pizza Box Art Gallery’. Pizza Pilgrims are inviting the great British public to draw/paint/collage whatever takes their fancy 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 will be coming soon.

Thom and James, Pizza Pilgrims founders, said: “We are really excited to be back on a market street. Streetfood 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 Zuppa 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.”
