PizzaExpress Launches New Summer Menu

Tuesday 18th Jun 2024 |

To celebrate the start of summer, PizzaExpress has launched a delicious menu of seasonal new dishes, perfect for the warmer months.

Launching today, the UK’s most iconic pizzeria is serving up delectable new additions
including an array of plentiful and flavoursome salads, innovative takes on authentic Al
Forno dishes, the return of a fan favourite twist on Dough Balls, and two show stopping

The perfect addition to PizzaExpress’ already iconic menu, the new indulgent desserts
include a feature of everyone’s favourite biscuit: a Biscoff Billionaire Sundae. This
decadent treat is created with Biscoff’s signature Lotus biscuits and sauce, creamy
vanilla and salted caramel gelato, finished with chocolate sauce and whipped cream – a
delicious finale to any meal.

Those with a taste for the sweet life will also delight in the refreshing Summer Berry and
White Chocolate Sundae, which combines smooth vanilla gelato, tangy mixed berries,
and a sweet berry coulis, topped with lashings of whipped cream and white chocolate
curls – the perfect mix of sweet and sharp.

The innovations don’t stop there, with PizzaExpress bringing a whole host of new dishes
to the marble table this season. From a dish the younger PizzaExpress fans will love in
the Piccolo Creamy Pesto, a pasta creation of creamy béchamel sauce with basil and
pine kernel pesto, to summer salads and the return of a fan-favourite Dough Ball
creation, the new menu includes:

  • Dynamite Dough Balls: a spin on the iconic Dough Balls and a returning favourite:
    Dough Balls coated in a fiery chilli, garlic and basil salsa, and cooled down with
    PizzaExpress’ famous garlic and herb dip. Fans of Dough Balls will rejoice with the
    return of this beloved twist.
  • Vegan Buddha Bowl: a colourful bowl of mixed grains, balsamic roasted beetroot,
    roasted and fresh tomatoes, spinach and rocket with balsamic dressing, hummus
    and spiced toasted seeds, this dish joins PizzaExpress’ menu which is already
    over 50% vegan or vegetarian.
  • Goat’s Cheese & Beetroot Buddha Bowl: this delicious salad returns, with the
    vibrant Buddha Bowl salad base topped with tangy goat’s cheese and sweet
  • Crispy Chicken Buddha Bowl: a Buddha Bowl topped with succulent breaded
    chicken atop leafy greens, toasted seeds and sundried tomatoes.
  • Carbonara PizzaExpress: an iconic dish, complete with smoky pancetta, Gran
    Milano cheese, garlic oil and silky béchamel sauce – it’s pure comfort in a bowl.
  • Prawn Peperonata: a seafood twist on a classic dish, this hearty pasta is mixed
    with prawns, a tomato and garlic sauce, chilli flakes and roasted peppers and
    finished with fresh parsley.
