About this business
Long before the recent opening of his home-town restaurant in Peterborough, Peter Boizot started the first PizzaExpress in London, 1965. However his first taste of pizza was in 1948 whilst in Northern Italy. From there, he found himself in Germany where he witnessed pizzaiolos dressed in blue and white striped shirts tossing the dough high into the air. This was accompanied by opera, classical and jazz music all played off a juke machine. On returning to London and finding no good pizzas.
