A Vegan Lunch @ Pizza Express

Pizza Express is a long-term fave of my monthly food partner Jo and since their vegan options have widened I also am a fan.

I have been having dough balls there with garlic oil for as long as I’ve been vegan (almost 7 years), they now have a vegan version which comes with a harissa pesto dip. The dip was nice but I still asked for some garlic oil on the side!

I tried a new dish for my main, the leggera peperonata pasta. It had a spicy pepper sauce but I did feel it was missing something, I know they were trying to keep it under 600 calories to be a “leggera” (light) option but I’m sure there could have added a bit more veg.

For dessert both Jo and I went for the carrot cake and a hot drink. The carrot cake was a decent size and Jo said she couldn’t tell it was vegan despite no dairy cream cheese in the frosting.

New Vegan Options at Pizza Express

A couple of weeks ago I went for my weekly swimming session with my Mum and she fancied trying the new vegan options at Pizza Express so we picked up her Husband on the way from the pool and headed to our local branch.

I had already looked at the options when they were announced and knew I wanted to try the Puttanesca pizza which came with jackfruit, capers and olives.

It was tasty but the jackfruit wasn’t as flavoursome as I would have liked. I think I would go back to the vegan giardinera next time.

My mum enjoyed the leggera version of the giardinera which has a hole in the middle filled with salad.

There are also a couple of desserts available including a mini carrot cake which comes with a hot drink, unfortunately I was too full from the pizza to try but it’s definitely on my hit list. (I’ll have to have the leggera next time!)

Have you tried any of the new options in Pizza Express? What did you think? Let me know in the comments below.
