The boss Phil Brown and midfield pair Jack Payne and Will Atkinson rolled up their sleeves to try their hand at making pizzas at Papa John’s in Southend this afternoon.
Papa John’s provide Southend United with pizzas after games at Roots Hall and we went behind the scenes at their base in Southchurch Road to see how the magic happens.
All three made their pizzas, with the Gaffer almost an expert at doing it!
Phil said: “It was a good experience to see how it’s all made. I used to run my own restaurant when I was a lot younger but I’d never made a pizza before!”
“The pizzas will certainly taste nicer in the future”, said Payne, who made his own ‘deep Payne’ effort, whilst Atkinson opted for plenty of vegetables on his cheese and tomato base.
Many thanks to the staff at Papa John’s for having us this afternoon.
