A Slice of Spring with PizzaExpress…
With spring just around the corner, we can finally begin to think about all the perks of warmer weather; bright blooms and (hopefully!) even a little bit of sunshine. The PizzaExpress’ Leggera pizza range is the perfect accompaniment; this fresh, lighter* range is ideal for those balmy, longer evenings.

The Leggera pizzas are perfectly portioned for one, and carefully crafted to ensure they're as delicious as possible. Each full pizza contains least 38% less saturated fat than the PizzaExpress Classic supermarket range and less than 400 calories per pizza, whilst the multi-grain rye and spelt base is bursting with flavour.

Veggies can treat themselves to the delicious Mushroom & Ricotta pizza: topped with roasted garlic mushrooms, ricotta cheese & Roquito® peppers, it’s a far cry from being a meat-free afterthought. Whether you’re a longstanding vegetarian or a meat reducer, this veggie option is guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser for the whole family.

The pizza is packed full of vegetables, and a crisp side salad using the delicious PizzaExpress House Light dressing would be the ideal accompaniment for this meal. And, fans of the Leggera range rejoice – PizzaExpress have recently introduced two lighter in saturated fat** dressings to the mix. They're available in Asda for £1.50***, and you can choose from two delicious options - Leggera Pomegranate & Balsamic, or Leggera Fat-Free Vinaigrette: they're sure to help jazz up your meal. With two further additions set to complete the range this summer, you'll be well and truly spoilt for choice.

Try the veggie Leggera pizza today, for a typical price of around £3****. It’s available in the chilled aisles of Tesco and Booths, making it the perfect option to grab on the way home from work. And, with a cooking time of just 6-8 minutes from chilled, you’ll be left with more time to make the most of the spring sunshine.


1 The range is perfectly portioned for one person, so you know exactly how much to eat, and you won’t be tempted to go back for an extra slice or two.
2 Accompany with a fresh salad and a reduced-fat dressing to help keep those extra calories down.
3 Built on a multi-grain base made of a spelt and rye mix.
4 It’s lower in calories and saturated fat.
5 Includes vegetables as a topping!
