Pizzaiolo Flare Mob:
London's West End, made famous for its incredible theatre, was the backdrop for a different kind of show recently. 54 of our incredible Pizzaiolos took to the streets of London's Oxford Circus to celebrate 54 years of PizzaExpress, with an amazing flash mob.
In the early hours of the morning, the 54 Pizzaiolos (one for every year of our heritage) showcased their skills in a showstopping synchronised dough flaring display – bringing a halt to traffic and wowing commuters on their way to work. Watch the full video above.
The show also marked the transformation and reopening of our Langham Place pizzeria, near Oxford Circus.
All-new Oxford Circus Pizzeria Unveiled:
The all-new Langham Place pizzeria, situated in the heart of London's shopping district, is a truly stunning and exciting place to be. Take a seat at the cocktail bar after a long day of retail therapy, and enjoy a signature cocktail (with a PizzaExpress twist), like a Bloody Mary featuring our PizzaExpress Passata, or a Peroni Spritz - mixing two Italian classics; Aperol and Peroni.
After your drinks, make your way into the restaurant – with full view of the theatre kitchen – where you can watch the Pizzaiolos in all their glory, hand making and preparing your favourite to order. You can even sit up at the kitchen if you'd prefer, and enjoy the show from centre stage.
Good times. Together. That’s what we're about. It's been the same since 1965.
