An indulgent imagination helped a Kenilworth pupil rise to the top of the kitchen.
Thorns pupil, Elijah Tedd wowed the judges in a competition to create a new taste pizza for Marco Pierre White’s New York Italian in Smalley Place.
His Perfect Pizza Pudding - complete with chocolate spread, berries and ice cream - won him a cookbook signed by Marco Pierre himself.
The new recipe will be available to customers on the specials board this summer.
After watching his creation come to life, seven-year-old Elijah said: “I am proud to have won.
“I am really happy and excited, it has put a big smile on my face.”
