Summer on the menu at Pizza Express



Come rain or shine, summer is on its way and we have a delicious new range of summery treats to bring some sunshine to our taste buds.  From 10 June until 31 August, a delicious, low-calorie salad, two summery desserts and a refreshing cocktail are joining the menu.

Leggera Summer Salad GF


Having launched several hugely successful low-calorie salads over the past 12 months as part of our Leggera range, a new 315 calorie salad is joining the menu.  Continuing the Californian-inspired trend of adding fruit to savoury salads, the Leggera Summer Salad brings a new twist by incorporating classically British flavours.  It includes succulent pieces of torn chicken, juicy strawberries, fresh blueberries, mint, and goat’s cheese on a bed of seasonal mixed leaves.  It’s finished with PizzaExpress’ famous Light Dressing and basil.  As a classic accompaniment to chicken dishes, pancetta can be added to take this super salad to a modest 383 calories.

Summer Glories V 


It’s not summer in Britain until you’ve enjoyed some strawberries and cream.  Celebrating this classic combination, we are serving vanilla and strawberry gelato with fresh cream, fresh strawberries, and mint in the form of a Strawberry & Cream Glory.  For anyone looking for a bit more zing, PizzaExpress’ Lemon & Blueberry Glory includes this year’s star ingredient, lemon curd.  Having had a huge resurgence in popularity, lemon curd is folded into the lemon sorbet that forms the base of the new Lemon & Blueberry Glory.  Finished with juicy blueberries, sweet fruit coulis, a chocolate straw, mint and fresh lemon, this is a deliciously fresh and light dessert.  And it’s gluten-free.

The Hugo 


Finally, to celebrate the arrival of summer, a bit of fizz in the form of The Hugo – a refreshing and summery cocktail made with Prosecco and elderflower over ice, and finished with mint leaves and a slice of lemon.  Summer in a glass!

Let us know what you think of our new dishes using #summeron on Twitter or on our Facebook page.
