Looking to shake up your summer mealtimes? The UK’s best-loved pizzeria, PizzaExpress, can help!


With the warmer weather, longer evenings and a larger dose of sunshine finally upon us, it’s the perfect time for leisurely lunches with flatmates or al-fresco dinners with the family.

One great accompaniment for these lighter evenings in good company is the PizzaExpress Classic Vegan Giardiniera. After introducing vegan options to its restaurant menu, the pizzeria worked on ways for you to enjoy the great taste of these pizzas at home. This is where the “At Home” Vegan Giardiniera, directly inspired by the award-winning restaurant recipe, comes in.

Served on a Classic base, the pizza is topped with tasty ingredients: spinach, red onion, artichokes, garlic roasted mushrooms, vegan mozzarella alternative and PizzaExpress’ famous passata (that has been used in its kitchens since 1965!), and conjures up delight with every slice. The pizza only takes 10-12 minutes to cook from chilled in the oven, so it won’t take you long to serve up great pizza and good times.

The humble salad is another dish that goes hand-in-hand with sunshine season. Whether cucumber, tomato, olives or peppers are your go-to ingredients for this summer staple, shake things up with the PizzaExpress Vegan House Light Dressing.

The vegan version of the pizza brand’s much-loved House Light Dressing has been carefully crafted to replicate the taste of the number one salad dressing in the UK[1].

Creamy, full of flavour, with versatility that makes it a simple yet satisfying pairing for any meal, mix things up by using it to dress your salads or as a delicious dipping sauce for your Dough Balls, pizza crust or crudités.

Research by the Vegan Society[2] shows that one in five Brits has cut down their meat consumption, with 15 per cent reducing their dairy and egg intake over the course of the lockdown. So, whether you’ve been vegan for life or are just making your first tentative steps, PizzaExpress has made it easy with these plant-based goodies.
