New Menu Drop


Pizza lovers, listen up - festive time is finally here, and we are making all your wishes come true with the launch of our Christmas menu as well as an exclusive Christmas tasting menu for you to enjoy with your loved ones.

A social festive feast, showcasing the very best of PizzaExpress, combining some classics and exciting new dishes, including vegan and gluten-free options, get ready to ‘let it dough’ with our 5 festive courses from £24.95 per person… and because you need no excuses to celebrate at Christmas, add one of our jolly drinks pairings from £9.95. Kick off with an appetiser, our famous Dough Balls Doppio and Prosecco, a delicious starter, then pair your pizza with a crisp, chilled glass of Picpoul or a refreshing Peroni. And enjoy your dessert with an Italian classic Limoncello!

So whether you’re seeing friends, colleagues, or the person you meet under the mistletoe,  PizzaExpress has it all wrapped up…


Introducing the Romana Porchetta, which takes slow-cooked pork, the heart of every great Italian feasting tradition and puts it on a white béchamel base with crispy pancetta, mozzarella, garlic oil, and fennel seeds. Bellissimo!  

Tis the season to get dressed up, so that’s exactly why the Padana has been given a Christmas makeover. Say hello to the Padana Natale, the festive edition of the classic PizzaExpress recipe everyone knows and loves - goat’s cheese, spinach, mozzarella, tomato, garlic oil and red onions… now topped with a fruity cranberry sauce.

Indulgent, delicious, and full-on festive, it’ll be no surprise that the Mushroom & Truffle is here to tempt pizza fans, now available in all of our pizzerias after being a Deliveroo exclusive last year. Last but not least, vegans will be delighted to hear that the Mushroom & Pine Nut is on the menu - after you couldn’t get enough of it in 2018.


Fans of classic Christmas flavours will love the Turkey Polpette, which sees succulent turkey meatballs baked in PizzaExpress’ Italian tomato sauce with sweet roast peppers, rosemary and garlic, topped with an oozing layer of melted mozzarella. 

The Melanzanine will do the trick. Only available as part of the tasting menu, an al forno dish with layers of grilled aubergine, surrounded in tangy tomato sauce, baked in the oven with a hit of garlic and stringy mozzarella. Yum. 


Forget mince pies, the only desserts you’ll be craving this Christmas are at PizzaExpress. Choose from Orange & Carrot Cake, Lotus Biscoff Cheesecake, Salted Caramel Profiteroles, Chocolate Brownie or Caffè Reale on the tasting menu, or go for another festive treat that only comes around once a year.



Hungry for more? Our new Christmas menu sees an old favourite return with the Bruschetta con Funghi, now even better. Back on the main menu for the first time since 2016, the flavours have been ramped up with added garlic oil and a balsamic glaze.


They’re fluffy, they’re warm and they’re sweet: Our iconic Snowball Dough Balls are back! Dusted with cinnamon and icing sugar, these delicious balls of dough are served with fruit coulis, salted caramel, or fresh buttercream with a chocolate straw. Only available at Christmas - you better make the most of them!  

Those that prefer savoury puds won’t be disappointed with the Christmas Cheese Plate. First listed on the menu back in 1965, Pecorino, Gran Milano and a blue cheese are served with flatbreads and a tasty red onion chutney. What more could you ask for?

We’ve got some catching up to do - whether it’s a date night, mate night, or your office party. This year, we’re social christmasing! For more information, to find your local pizzeria and to book a table, visit our Christmas page.
