Pizzeria Review -Pizza Pilgrims London
« on: March 16, 2024, 04:29:07 AM »
Out first and last visit to a pizza pilgrims. It was underwhelming in every regard.

Pizza pilgrims was a name you canít avoid, as they are particularly big on the social media side, so we thought to give it a go.

The pizza was far from great. Itís Neapolitan style, but mine was really quite poor. On the positive side, thanks to the long'ish ferment the dough was reasonably flavoursome, especially for a non-sourdough, commercial yeast approach. But that was all I can say.

I think my pizza must have sat waiting for five or probably more minutes before being served. The ccornicone had no hint of crisp left, and the steam had made it completely soft and pappy by the time it arrived. The centre was thin and gummy on top. The cheese had gone rubbery and unpleasant. It was served almost cold.

I noticed that the table next to us each person had left around half of their pizzas, they all looked pretty cold and similar to what I received.

I suspect maybe a staffing issue.  Maybe the pizza direct from the oven would have been more ok if served quickly. The waiting staff all were milling around chatting to each other and getting in the way of diners coming in out, or going to the loo. They seemed distracted. Nobody came to ask if our meal was ok.

We were seated next to stacks of pizza boxes wrapped in plastic, which my wife thought was appalling. Maybe Pizza Pilgrims were going for a functional, industrial look, but in truth its just lazy and disrespectful to the customer. You can maybe get away with that if your product is ok.

I rarely if ever leave bad reviews, but if Pizza Pilgrims was ever good then the chain has outgrown its ability to deliver good Neapolitan pizza.

Next time hit up Ave Mario for a really amazing London Italian restaurant that just happens to have amazing pizza as well.  They spare no expense on the ingredients with the best Italian buffalo mozzarella brought in multiple times a week and gustarosso tomatoes.  They make a really nice dough with Biga.  Im still thinking about the meal I had there last summer, dont just get the pizza.

Wow. That looks the best. Thanks for the tip, Scott.
