PizzaExpress is a Breastfeeding Friendly Hotspot

In its search for the UK’s Breastfeeding Friendly Hotspots, Medela UK has revealed that PizzaExpress is leading the way with its family friendly approach.  Research carried out by the experts in breastfeeding, found that waiting staff, “…demonstrated a remarkable level of support for breastfeeding mothers with faultless feedback from the staff…”

Commenting on the results, Zoe Bowley, Operations Director at PizzaExpress, said, “We know that, when mums are negotiating so many new challenges, a warm welcome can make the biggest difference.”

Sioned Hilton, Medela’s Lactation Consultant, added, “We are often asked for tips when breastfeeding out and about and, although many women are quite rightly proud and confident when feeding their baby, others do feel self-conscious. It is for this reason we decided to find the most welcoming places for breastfeeding mums, and commend PizzaExpress and its team members on such a family friendly approach.”

Summer specials now on the menu!

It’s the time of year where you wake up in the morning and it could be raining/sunny/blazing hot/freezing cold/cloudy. Yes, the British summer is here! And we have two new dishes and a very summery drink now on the menu….


Proscuitto Fichi: created by Tomas Jurkiewski, a pizzaiolo from PizzaExpress’ Victoria Square restaurant in Belfast.
His elegant dish is served on a thin and crispy Romana base with creamy béchamel sauce, and topped with mozzarella and grated Gran Milano. Fresh out of the oven, it’s topped with rocket and perfectly ripened figs, marinated in balsamic vinegar, which beautifully complement delicate slices of prosciutto crudo. A sprinkle of fresh parsley, shavings of Gran Milano, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and fresh basil finish the dish.


The judges, who selected Tomas’ pizza as part of an internal competition, liked the combination of figs and prosciutto so much, that a salad version of the dish has also been created.  The Fichi Fresci uses the same, delicious combination of prosciutto crudo and fresh figs, marinated in balsamic vinegar.  They are placed on a bed of seasonal leaves with red onion, creamy buffalo mozzarella, basil, parsley, pine kernels and a drizzle of PizzaExpress’ Honey & Mustard Dressing.  The salad is served with a portion our Dough Balls.


And finally, Pimms! The taste of summer.
