Two new pizzas from Valentine Warner

Today we launch our new menu featuring two pizzas created exclusively for PizzaExpress by famed TV cook and food writer Valentine Warner.

Valentine has been hard at work with our team to develop two stunning pizzas that cover two food areas that should please you all – meat and fish.

The exciting thing about Valentine’s creations is that they are not simple pizzas; the Fennel Salami pizza features a fennel salami and some additional fresh fennel drizzled in lemon. We are certain Valentine will turn a few people into fennel fanatics – It is truly delicious.

The Puttanesca uses marinated anchovies with capers and mixed olives; these ingredients steal the show for this pizza as it really packs a punch.

Valentine Warner’s two fabulous pizzas are available from today, 24th April, at all PizzaExpress restaurants.

Exclusive competition:
We are offering one lucky PizzaExpress fan the chance to have Valentine Warner cook exclusively for them and five friends at a private seating. This Chef’s Table experience will give you an insider look at Valentine’s inspiration behind the pizzas.

On your mark, get set, GO!

Today marks the start of a gigantic journey for over 250 riders who are embarking on a five stage bicycle ride from Greece to London, covering 2,817km in 22 days.

With hundreds of hours in training and fundraising, the Dallaglio Flintoff Cycle Slam is underway for 2012.

As a proud sponsor of Cycle Slam 2012, we will give you updates on the riders journey as they enter into the ancient villages with cobbled streets, mountainous terrain with never-ending turns, and to the local after a hard day of work.

Cycle Slam 2012 is a great initiative set up by former England rugby captain Lawrence Dallaglio and cricketing captain Freddy Flintoff, who have pulled together over 250 people to volunteer their time to take part on this ride which plans to generate £2,012,000.
Each Cycle Slam rider was set the task of raising £3000 each for the charity even before they put foot to pedal.

We have several members from the PizzaExpress team who will take part in the Cycle Slam and we will give you all the goss and behind the scene updates on the action.

Win two seats at our exclusive Tasting Evenings

We would like to introduce you to Valentine Warner – one of the UK’s favourite TV cook and food writers.

Valentine has been busy working with us to develop two pizzas for our Spring menu, that launches on 24th April.
Valentine’s passion for simple food and fresh ingredients is what sets him apart.

He has introduced one of his favourite ingredients, fennel, in one of his pizzas. We believe the flavour combination of fennel and salami will be a massive hit. Watch fennel become the next big thing on the high street.
And something else to note is that he has created a pizza without meat – yes, something for the vegetarians! How can you not love Valentine, he makes something for everyone.

To celebrate the launch of Valentine Warner’s delicious pizzas we are hosting Tasting Evenings in London, Manchester, Leeds and Edinburgh exclusively for our Facebook community. 125 PizzaExpress fans will have a night on us where you try the new additions to our Spring menu.

All you have to do is visit our Facebook page and leave your details in the ‘Valentine Warner’ tab.
Entries close on the day of launch, 24th April.
