Incredible pizzas and authentic Italian recipes from street-foodie brothers who have taken London by storm. Pizza Pilgrims is the brainchild of James and Thom Elliot who decided to give up their 'proper' jobs to follow a dream. Excited by the burgeoning street food movement in London, they decided to travel 4,000km around Italy in their Ape three-wheeler van, meeting food producers, top chefs and passionate local cooks, to uncover the best-kept secrets of pizza making and bring them home. Armed with their Italian foodie knowledge, they set up shop (or van) in Berwick Street market in Soho selling incredible takeaway pizzas at a reasonable price. Since then they've garnered five-star reviews for their food, opened a pop-up restaurant, which was an instant sell-out and fed a host of hungry festival goers throughout the summer. This book shows how to make the best pizzas ever - from the simple but revered Neapolitan margherita to saltimbocca (pizza sandwiches) and pizza nduja (pizza topped with a spicy pork sausage). Pizza Pilgrims focuses on the key ingredients and techniques that will make your pizza stand out from the crowd as well as showcasing other cherished Italian recipes from the brothers; Pepperonata on bruschetta, Tuscan chicken with green olives, the cheese farmer's wife's Caciofiore ravioli, vanilla ice cream three ways and many, many more. James and Thom's enthusiasm for Italian food is addictive and this is a cookbook to inspire and to have fun with.

“A delicious collection of fresh Italian recipes”

I love cooking Italian food and this ace book is full of great little recipes that are a bit different but undoubtably tasty. I heartily recommend it.
