Pizza or pasta? This week, you don't have to choose! Pasta Evangelists have joined forces with award-winning Neapolitan pizza masters, Pizza Pilgrims, for the ultimate mash-up of Italian cuisine: when Pizza met Pasta. A menu swap of dreams starring three 'Pizza Pilgrims' specials inspired by signature pizza toppers from the cult pizzeria. Pizza Pilgrims have also pushed the boat out and created two brand new Pasta Evangelists-inspired pizza kits. Buon appetito!
Our co-founder Alessandro comments on our excitement & anticipation about this carb-heaven collaboration:
“Bringing these two visions together seemed like a no brainer! Not only are we friends with the Pizza Pilgrims brothers, Thom and James, but this collaboration is a match made in heaven. They are evangelising pizza while we’re creating a pasta pilgrimage, each of us bringing handfuls of ‘Italianità’ with our food.”
What's on the Menu?
‘Double Pepperoni & Spicy Honey’ Spaghetti
Inspired by Pizza Pilgrims’ hottest new serve, and to replicate that addictive Pizza Pilgrims combo of sweet, spice and meaty savoury, and chewy-crunchy texture, we’ve caramelised our Properoni® in chili-infused honey. To finish, we’ve paired our pizza-inspired sauce with spaghetti, the perfect vehicle for capturing every last drop of the intensely meaty sauce. A generous sprinkling of charred pizza crust crumb will transport you to pizza-pasta heaven.
'Nduja & Fior di Latte Lasagne
Evoking the signature Pizza Pilgrims’ topping, which delights with rustic dollops of spicy ‘nduja atop a traditional margherita base, we mix generous spoonfuls of the fiery Calabrian sausage with tomato ragù, classic bechamel and ‘Fior di Latte’ Mozzarella, layered between fresh pasta sheets. Interestingly, ‘Fior di Latte’ literally translates as ‘flower of the milk’ and is named as such not only to signal its sweet and delicate flavour, but also to distinguish that it’s made with pure cow’s milk as opposed to traditional buffalo mozzarella, originally made in Naples with buffalo milk. We think you’ll find this balance of creaminess & spice a match made in (southern Italian) heaven.
Conchiglie alla 'Margherita’
Da Vinci said, ‘simplicity is the ultimate sophistication’ and it is this which epitomises our take on a delicious pizza classic. According to Pizza Pilgrims, Margherita is the 'heavyweight champ' of the pizzaverse, so we’ve used sweet Datterini tomatoes, milky bocconcini mozzarella and the freshest basil because only the finest Italian ingredients can emulate this timeless combination of flavours.
