Pizza Express

 

 

Peter Boizot, MBE, is a Soho legend. In 1965 he introduced the pizza to Londoners when he imported an Italian oven into the first ever Pizza Express in Wardour Street. The popularity of the jazz club below his Dean Street pizzeria lead to the founding of the Soho Jazz Festival. He fought the very successful Save Piccadilly campaign, was a founder member of the Soho Society and the Soho Restaurateurs Association and supported in no small measure Soho Housing Association. Talking of Food interviewed him at his home in Peterborough.
