The founders of Pizza Pilgrims James & Thom Elliott came to the Tukshop to purchase a Piaggio Ape TM van for their new street food business. Much focus was attached to how much weight the beast could carry, when we learned of their plans the reason soon became clear...they were planning to install a pizza oven in the back!
Not content with an offer of free delivery the intrepid entrepreneurs wanted to collect their iconic Ape from the factory in Italy and drive it home. Along the journey the brothers spent time learning all they could about the art of making proper pizza Neopolitan style.
The growing fan base frequenting Berwick St Market is now testament to how their culinary adventure has paid off with regards to the quality of the pizza and of course a good line in market banter!
The Ape Van is coping very well with the oven on board and has even made a number of appearances on the festival scene this summer including camp bestival where I sampled the produce..first class!
