Pizza in Parma: If you love pizza, this is the TV show for you

If you're a pizza fan, you truly cannot miss this new show.

Embark on a journey with Jez and leuan as they prepare to make the pilgrimage to the World Pizza Championships in Parma, Italy. 

What's it all about?

The two friends have long had a dream to become pizza-makers extraordinaire so they buy an old Italian van, put an oven in the back of it and set off on the journey to Parma. 

They affectionately name the van, Smokey Pete and since they have no money to get to Parma, they decide to cook pizzas along the way in return for favours. 

What happens along the way?

We follow the boys as they stop and feed hungry tourists in the south west of England all the way to Basque country in Spain and then to Bordeaux from some wine tasting. 

The pair not only have a lot of fun that is guaranteed to warm your heart, but they also learn a lot about their craft along the way.

The series culminates at the World Pizza Championships - will they take out the grand prize?

Stream or watch Pizza in Parma exclusive to Lifestyle FOOD, Thursdays at 8.30pm.
