Pizza Pilgrims is to launch its first pizza academy in Camden next month in what will be the group’s first north London opening.

The site will function as both a pizzeria and a training academy and operate entirely as a social enterprise, with all profits from the Camden pizzeria being used to fund the training academy

First reported by BigHospitalitylast year​, the pizza academy will be ‘aimed at the young, ex-homeless, ex-offenders, or anyone that needs a fresh start’, and ‘provide a genuine qualification for its graduates to take home ideas for self-improvement and business theory’.

The academy will be located at the back of the pizzeria and feature two private training rooms, as well as a dedicated training kitchen space.

There will also be a ‘pizza theatre’ for training larger groups of people on specific pizza skills and concepts.

The pizzeria will then provide a live environment for graduates to put their new-found skills to the test.

As well as the more formal training courses focused on teaching students about all aspects of the hospitality business, the academy will also host a programme of lectures to help provide further industry insight.

Founded by brothers James and Thom Elliot in 2012, Pizza Pilgrims currently operates 11 sites across London, with one further location in Oxford.
