Peter Boziot, founder of Pizza Express, was incredibly disappointed by the pizzas he sampled in London. So, he did what any passionate Italian would do; he shipped over an authentic pizza oven and opened his first restaurant in Soho in London. That was in 1965; since then, the brand has grown one restaurant at a time and it’s now the UK’s largest casual dining chain with over 420 restaurants nationwide.
When you visit a Pizza Express restaurant, you’ll be greeted with a warm welcome before getting settled in their cosy dining areas. Delve into the menu, and you’ll find a whole host of authentic Italian dishes. Italian cuisine is renowned for being wholesome, flavoursome, and filling. The best part? With a Pizza Express gift card in your pocket the most difficult choice you’ll face is what to order!
Popular dishes include dough balls served with garlic butter, and light and crispy calamari for starters. When it comes to main dishes; there are four styles to choose from and more toppings than you could shake a stick at. The Romana pizza features a thin and crispy base and is inspired by pizza from Rome. The Classic is the original pizza base which started things off in 1965, whilst the Leggera is ideal for those who are keeping an eye on their calorie consumption whilst the Calabrese rectangular pizza is a meat and cheese lover’s dream. Round everything off with a delightful dessert and a glass or two of wine, and you’ll need to be rolled out of the front door.
At Pizza Express, you’ll never miss out just because you can’t eat gluten. On the menu you’ll find a mouth-watering selection of starter, pizza’s, salads, desserts, and even beer, that are all certified by Coeliac UK.
