ABOUT SAFARI PIZZA Co.
The Safari Pizza Co. is a mobile wood fired pizza company run by Alex & Alicia who, after many years travelling and working in Africa, returned to the UK. However they wanted to bring some of the amazing flavours and colours back to the UK.
Alex moved to Botswana in 2014 and spent a year working on a cheetah conservation project in the Kalahari. During his time there he completed his field guide course and worked in the Okavango Delta as a manager at Mopiri Camp. Whilst here Alex had the chance to use a wood fired oven and soon started to make pizzas. He spent many nights practising and perfecting his dough recipes and trying out various sauces. Even with only limited ingredients his wood fired pizzas became popular with guests and staff.
Alicia has many strings to her bow. She is a professional make up artist, ran a successful wedding venue and wine tasting business and is a trained sommelier. She has completed her cookery diploma at Ashburton Cookery School, which included pizza!
Alicia has always had a soft spot for Africa and safaris, and has been travelling around it for most of her life. It was one one of these trips that she met Alex.
Whilst out on Safari in South Luangwa National Park in Zambia, they formulated a plan and came up with ‘The Safari Pizza co’. A mobile wood fired pizza business with an African twist. Once back in the UK they just needed a Land Rover Defender and an oven.
