James and Hattie moved to Devon for the summer of 2013 in between their second and final year of University studies in London. We started off by offering our homemade wood-fired pizzas over our garden wall in South Pool to those coming up to visit the village on the ‘High Tide’!
We immediately fell in love with Devon and were so excited by the region’s shared passion and appreciation for quality, local food that we decided to move down to Devon straight after we completed our studies!
In 2014 we began offering wood-fired pizzas at local campsites during the summer months. Our pizzas proved really popular and we began having lots of requests for Weddings, Private Parties and Corporate Events.
At the end of the following year we were approached by the previous owner of ‘il vulcano’ Giovanni, who explained his family plans to moved back to Italy and stressed how important it was to him to keep this important part of the local community alive! We we’re flattered that Gianni approached us and were really happy to be able to continue making wood-fired pizzas throughout the year in the amazing ‘il vulcano’ pizza van!
