Pizza Pilgrims open in Oxford

The Pizza Pilgrims are returning to home turf with a new opening in Oxford – their first outside London. Founders Thom and James Elliot grew up near Chipping Norton before heading to the big smoke where they started selling pizzas from the back of an Italian Piaggio Ape van kitted out with a woodfired oven. Now they have six London sites, and the latest addition to the empire is the new restaurant in Oxford’s Westgate centre. Pizza Pilgrims specialises in pizza (well, d’uh!) made in a traditional Neapolitan style, and to honour the new location they’re working on a creating an Oxford special using ingredients sourced from around the area.
