Wandercrust Wood-Fired Pizza comes to The Duke
The Duke is proud to welcome Wandercrust who will be serving their award-winning, wood-fired pizza here from Tuesday to Sunday every week.
Having proved a big hit at Inn Public’s The Crown in Greenwich, we’re very happy to say hello to Wandercrust here at The Duke. They will be serving up their amazing wood-fired pizza here from Tuesday to Sunday every week – check out our homepage for the serving times – and they have also been named ‘2018 London Pizza Champions’ by Young & Foodish. So if you’d like to know more about Wandercrust and how they make such delicious pizzas then read on…
‘We’re a London-based pizza business serving exceptionally good quality wood-fired pizzas… All of our pizzas are produced with great love, care and flair by Aussie Brit Mike, and served by Gav, who provides plenty of friendly scouse charm and a big-bearded smile with every order.
Gav and Mike met at a pub where Mike was the manager and Gav was a local. Fast forward a few years…
In December 2015, Gav happened across a pizza van (that used to be a horse box) while searching online for a camper van. Curiosity got the better of him so he clicked… then he sent the link to Mike, half joking… you see Mike has dreamt for many years about having his own pizza business. Mike even went to Naples to learn the trade with the help of a Neapolitan friend and has been making his own dough and designing epic pizza topping combinations for many years. Mike bought his very own pizza oven and dough mixer and has been hosting regular pizza nights for friends. Back to the van… long story short… they bought it and here we are.
Our light dough recipe is a simple mix of water, salt, fresh yeast and a blend of flours allowing for a longer, room temperature fermentation, no less than 30 hours. If there were “secret ingredients”, they would be passion, patience and repetition. We pride ourselves on the taste and quality and try to stay seasonal with our menus – you will not be disappointed.’
Just like at The Crown, a brand new pizza oven has been built on site and so come on down to The Duke, the new home of Wandercrust, and try one of their amazing pizzas – or three.
