sustainability at the heart: from pizza van to pizzeria
Well Kneaded, founded in Battersea in 2011, is a social enterprise headed up by husband and wife team Laurence and Bridget, which champions sustainability- check out the blog for more details on that. It combines an obsession with the sustainable creation of a sourdough pizza centred menu, with a vision to bring transformation to local young folk who have faced disadvantage.
From street food markets with Kerb, to private parties for the rich and famous, Wendy the Wagon (photo on right) saw it all, but she had her limits! We opened our fist bricks n mortar site in Earlsfield, in December 2018 in order that we could keep developing our vision.
We are really proud to have won an urban food award for 'Women in Food', 2019 and been recognised by the Sustainable Restaurant Association as a sustainable food business, Sept 2019.
At the heart of our menu is some seriously delicious (award winning) British-inspired sourdough pizza, cooked Neopolitan-style. Our flavour-filled salads, sides and desserts, served both in our Pizzeria or at your pizza event, are inspired by the British seasons, and enjoyed best with a glass of our biodynamic wine or lovely London beer.
Sustainability is part of our DNA here at Well Kneaded so everything you eat and drink has been carefully thought about. British organic veggies and high welfare meat and dairy also pack a serious taste punch. Any packaging we use is made from recycled materials.
Our food has consistently featured in Time Out, ES magazine & Observer Food as one of the ‘Top 10 street food in London’.
It's all about the people. Our team are an extension of our family, and anyone who has ever worked at Well Kneaded is considered as such.
This is the run down of who we've got on board currently.
