Back in October, pizza fans rejoiced as the team behind Flor brought ASAP Pizza out of hibernation. Continuing its success, now pizza whizz, head chef Pamela Yung and her team are inviting friends from across the world to create their own guest creations for ASAP Pizza’s menu, to raise money for charity.
Kicking off on 25 February, diners will be able to try whole pizzas on Thursday, also available by the slice over the weekend. For those that can’t make it to the restaurant, ASAP Pizza is available for delivery within a three-mile radius of the Borough Market site.
Nik Bramham of Quality Wines is first up with his bechamel-based “white Hawaiian”, followed by gonzo Canadian chef Matty Matheson, recreating his famous thin crust double pepperoni pizzas from Maker Pizza in Toronto. Ombra’s Mitshel Ibrahim and Trisha Greentree of Sydney’s Italian restaurant 10 William Street are also lined up, as well as – less obviously – comedian Aziz Ansari.
“We wanted to bring together pies from our friends scattered across the globe, so that while travel remains a distant dream, our guests can try chefs’ recipes each week,” says Yung. “We’re also looking forward to supporting a variety of different charities throughout the series, lending a helping hand to those in need.”
£3 from every pizza and £1 from every slice will be donated to a charity chosen by the guest chef and delivery can be pre-booked from 19 February. Visit the website here to find out more.
