The next Pizza Pilgrims is something of a departure. Yes, there will be the usual top-notch Neapolitan pizzas, but this Camden opening will also be home to a fully-fledged Pizza Academy.
All of which means that alongside the traditional pizzeria will be a space that's designed to help people get into a hospitality career. It's aimed at the young, ex-homeless, ex-offenders or anyone that needs a fresh start, and they want the graduates to earn qualifications that allow them to take home ideas for self-improvement and business theory - and get a job in the hospitality industry.
At the back of the restaurant is the "pizza theatre" for training larger groups of people on specific pizza skills and concepts - and the graduates can then put their new-found skills to the test in the actual pizzeria, open to the public. Part-time students can join too and there will be one-off classes alongside the main courses.
It sounds like a great idea and well worth supporting - so if you're in the Camden area, head down there to put the trainees' skills to the test (and get a great Neapolitan pizza at the same time).
