Pizza Pilgrims, the London-based sourdough pizzeria concept, is to further strengthen its presence in the capital with an opening in Waterloo.

The five-strong group, which also has openings lined up in West India Quay and Oxford, is understood to have secured a site in The Cut, Waterloo, subject to planning, for an opening later this year.

Yesterday it revealed that it had secured 136-137 Shoreditch High Street for its latest new site, which open this March.

The Shoreditch site is set to debut Pizza Pilgrims’ version of the deep-fried Mars Bar, where guests will be able to bring in a chocolate bar and have it covered in dough and baked.

It will also be the group’s first BYOB restaurant, with a £2.50 corkage charge after the first month of opening.

New menu items will include Crust Dippers; Prosciutto Pops; and Tiramisu served in takeaway cardboard espresso cups, alongside the group’s signature thin-crust pizzas.

Last year, Kieran Sherlock, long-time property director at YO! Sushi, joined the company as a non-executive director to aid the group’s continued expansion in the capital and move into the regions.

It will open in the Westgate scheme in Oxford later this year.

The company will be popping-up at The Red Gallery in Shoreditch from 9-11 February ahead of the March opening.
