Two men with day jobs quit all they had to travel to Naples and discover the art of real pizza-making. They later used this knowledge to create one of the most successful entrepreneurial ventures- the Pizza Pilgrims. Along with the food van, they now have a restaurant in Soho. The pizzas are as magical as the traditional Italian pizzas, so much so, that one cannot decide whether to eat them all at once or take them home and relish them at leisure. The tomatoes are grown on Mount Vesuvius in Italy while the dough and cheese are also imported from Italy. The flavor is so great, that one can be assured that this food van is much awaited in the vicinity!
