6 London pizza greats compete for glory at the ultimate pizza bake off - 2nd June, Borough Market
You and 1000 other pizza-loving Londoners will be entrusted with a tremendous responsibility:
Consume and compare 6 slices cut from the wood-fired showcase pizzas of the featured pizza makers and then vote in the 2019 London Pizza Festival Champion.
Just when you thought pizza in London could not get any bigger or better, world-class imports 50 Kalò (Trafalgar Square via Naples) and Gloria Trattoria (Shoreditch via Paris) have crashed the best-in-London pizza rankings. These pizza conquerers will be put to a stiff test, competing against L’Antica Pizza da Michele (Baker Street) and Theo’s (Camberwell and Elephant and Castle) as well as the mobile upstarts The Dough Shack (south-west London) and Ffwrnes (Cardiff).
The 6 competitors will each present a signature pizza and, where necessary, a vegetarian alternative. The only way to try these showcase pizzas in one place at one time is by booking an advance ticket for one of three overlapping afternoon sessions.
The £28 full ticket price includes admission, 6 quarter-pizza slices (1 from each competitor), 1 can of Five Points beer or soft drink & 1 bottle Ferrarelle Sparkling Mineral Water.
The £10 single slice ticket includes admission, 1 sice of pizza, 1 can of beer or soft drink & 1 bottle Ferrarelle Sparkling Mineral Water.
Each pizzeria will feature a different signature pizza. If that pizza contains meat, a vegetarian alternative will be on offer.
Tickets can be booked for any of 3 overlapping sessions beginning at 12pm, 2pm and 4pm. (Entry times are staggered to shorten the queues.)
The votes will be counted and the champion crowned at the conclusion of the 4pm session.
Children under 12 will be admitted free. No one else will be admitted without a ticket.
When you arrive you will receive a stamp card. The only way to get pizza is with that card.
Pizza-inspired nibbles and snacks, Italian pastries, craft ales, Spritz cocktails, Italian wine, soft drinks and mineral water will be sold.
The event location – Borough Market's Green Market – is outdoors but mostly covered.
Table and bench seating is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis.
DJ Anna Lovell, a sensation at the 2016, 2017 and 2018 festivals, will be back to spin a mix of Northern soul & classic R&B.
No tickets will be sold on the day of the event. (The 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 festivals were sold out weeks in advance.)
Please note that with your booking you are consenting to have photos and video taken of you, ideally with a beautiful pizza in your hands, and posted online.
Notice of cancellation must be received via email at least 7 days prior to the event date to quality for a full refund.

We’ve all heard of Merlin, legendary wizard and advisor to King Arthur. We know him from the pages of our books and stories passed down for generations.
But what if he wasn’t just legend? Strange things have been happening around Southwark, a lost old man, odd signs, whispers of a dark and ancient foe. Some think it’s just a change in the weather, but there are secrets in the old stones of London…
This Spring, team up with family and friends to solve puzzles, collect items, explore Southwark and help defeat the horror that threatens us all.

Woodburner is proud to present the launch of our weekly festival, every Tuesday at Dalston Eastern Curve Garden. Our launch event is curated by queen of love-jazz Dylema Amadi, who brings her ensemble The Dylema Collective alongside electronic RnB from Alexndr London, irresistible soul vocals of Boadi and the blissed-out hip hop from Lex Amor.
The Dylema Collective
The Dylema Collective is a poetry-music project with sounds combining Neo-Soul, Contemporary Jazz and floaty R&B carefully blended with a cross-over of Funk, Latin and poly-rhythmic grooves and spoken-word poetry. Thematically, their feminist poetry addresses head on matters of race, gender and individuality, values reiterated by the hidden message within their lead vocalist’s name’s acronym: “Do You. Let Every Man Adapt”. In short, they love sharing music and poetry that shakes the mind, soul and body.
The enigmatic and intriguing artist Alxndr London returns with new EP 2023. Effortlessly blending soul, r&b and electronic music whilst subverting it into something completely his own. This marks his debut on Gaika’s new imprint The Spectacular Empire. ‘2023’ is inspired by the sounds of UK Funky, London’s Garage sound, Yoruba Spirituals and Electronic Soul; an experimental project rooted in a genre-less space that balances spiritual conflict and Afrocentric themes, with unconstrained fantasy and spectacular science-fiction. 'Silver Universe’ starts proceedings with endearing vocals and gentle staccato that builds then breaks into a funk groove that’s undeniable and will have you nodding along. Then all of a sudden, the rug is pulled from beneath you, it cuts to black and in the distance a tannoy transmits “welcomes you to 2023”. Everything becomes slightly darker and a more electronic sound ensues with a pounding four to the floor kick drum and melodic arpeggiators. 'Jury, Judge, Executioner’ demonstrates Alxndr London's expert falsetto and breath control as his voice takes centre stage in this sultry, hypnotic track with off-kilter synths and percussions painting a vivid picture all around him with just enough space to captivate your imagination.
Boadi is a 23-year old soul/R&B singer-songwriter originating from South London. Growing up his musical influences were legendary artists such as Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill and Marvin Gaye. Coming from a family of instrumentalists and singers, Boadi was instantly surrounded by music, he then developed his musical talents further when attending church, perhaps this is where his heavy use of gospel inspired backing vocals and harmonies stemmed from.
Heritage and identity seems to have great importance to Boadi and has played a part in the path his music has taken. His mother migrated from Ghana and he spent a year living there when he was a child, he tells Lex Amor on Mellowdic radio that when he was younger, he listened to a lot of traditional Ghanaian music which taught him about diﬀerent rhythms and harmonies.
Boadi’s first oﬃcial release was his Bwerdee EP released in September 2016. The EP introduces his jazz-influenced sound which is combined with a dash of hip-hop for authenticity. Since Bwerdee, there has been no significantly drastic change in Boadi’s musical style, however you could argue that his earlier music had a slightly more electronic and edited character for example the manipulated vocal sample in “X4” and the electronic drum pad lines in “Save My Soul”.
Boadi plays guitar, keys and bass and recorded several of the instrument parts for the first EP, yet following its release, he’s found his current band members who now record their own parts. He told Mellowdic radio that they create together successfully as a team because they vibe collectively and click as people.
Host of Reprezent Radio’s addictive Mellowdic Show, London-based lyricist, Lex Amor’s monthly dip into musical spices champions vibes upon vibes from artists near and far. Consistently a treat for the soul and the same can be said for Lex’s own musical output.
Most find it challenge enough to express oneself in everyday life, and the case possibly the same for Amor; yet in music it seems she has found a medium in which she would struggle to hide her true self. Such is the ease and natural cadence of Amor’s delivery, you find yourself hanging off her every word. Lex has the effortless ability to translate her full self in her music, with beats and rhymes you won’t be able to keep off repeat.
