So I’ve committed a bit of a crime here, I came to pizza express and I didn’t have a pizza 😱 I apologise sincerely, my only excuse is that I really fancied some pasta 🤤. Seeing as I’d saved up some Tesco clubcard vouchers I got the meal pretty much free, this is always a bonus 😊
What I really like about pizza express is the options they have on their menu for vegans, I was disappointed to see that not everything which was on the online menu was available at this particular restaurant but I guess that’s the way it goes. I had the roasted tomatoes to start, if the option had been there I’d have gone for the vegan dough balls but the tomatoes were tasty with a strong flavour of garlic 👌🏼
After a lot of tooing and froing from pizza to pasta back to pizza I eventually decided to go for the Leggera Peperonata. This is penne pasta baked in a sauce of passata, rosemary, chilli flakes, garlic and roasted mixed peppers, finished with rocket and fresh parsley. It was just what I needed, great flavour and filling – it helps that I love pasta!
I did take a look at the dessert menu but I was full and there wasn’t anything that shone out at me so I gave it a swerve. Nice enough in here, pleased to have had a nice meal with my vouchers but next time I plan on using them at a different restaurant 👍🏼 but a good place to come especially if you are with a mix of people who like different things.
