PizzaExpress is revealing three exclusive pizzas to enjoy at home during lockdown - and there's 20 per cent off when ordered via delivery. The special deal is valid until February 28 - but the varieties will remain on the menu after that date. New menu varieties are the Quattro Formaggi Piccante, the Mushroom & Truffle and the Napoletana.
Offering a taste of history, the Napoletana was a favourite of founder Peter Boizot back in 1965, and was included on the PizzaExpress menu from its very first day. The recipes include: Quattro Formaggi Piccante
A balance of pecorino, Italian blue, soft mozzarella and Gran Milano, this twist on a classic is paired with rosemary and finished with smoky chilli jam. Mushroom & Truffle This recipe pairs mushrooms with mozzarella, garlic oil and rosemary, topped with a drizzle of truffle oil and finished with parsley and shavings of Gran Milano.
Served on a bechamel base. Napoletana An iconic pizza on the menu from day one, these bold flavours were a favourite of PizzaExpress founder, Peter Boizot, himself.
A classic pairing of anchovies, capers and black olives combined with tomatoes, mozzarella and garlic oil - this is a classic Neapolitan pizza in its truest form.
