Pizza Express has completed 52 years and they have launched their Vintage menu as a celebratory note in outlets across the world. The chic vibe is kept alive with some fresh cheesy bakes, the bestsellers and desserts, the cheesecake, oh the cheesecake.
The drinks included a delicious, thick and creamy Hot Chocolate cup.
We started with Bruschetta Picante and Spiedini di Pollo. Fresh dough baked with fontal cheese and jalapenos topped with rocket leaves and emilgrana. It was unlike the traditional bruschetta but the fresh baked bread and melting cheese is most appetizing. The pesto chicken skewers with watermelon, olives, rocket leaves and lemon was just about decent.
Classic Formaggi 65 – a thick dough garnished with mozzarella, buffalo mozzarella and Emilgrana topped with shaved Emilgrana. Cheesy shavings, loads of cheese over a thick tossed based, cheesy and classic at its best. Romana American Hottest – pepperoni, jalapenos, fresh red chilli, spicy hot N’duja sausage, passata and buffalo mozzarella, finished with buffalo mozzarella, fresh parsley and chilli oil. This thin crust pie is the hottest on their menu, with heavenly pepperoni and hot jalapenos. The creamy buffalo mozzarella cuts the chilly to create a balance. Penne Pollo Picante – penne done al dente with a creamy harissa sauce, spinach, spicy grilled chicken and cherry tomatoes. The strong punch of harissa went slightly amiss in the pasta.
The dessert included a hearty Cheesecake and a Real Italian Gelato. Baked vanilla cheesecake with just the right consistency, light and frothy over a buttery crust, vanilla gelato and strawberry sauce. This was hands down one of the best cheesecakes EVER. The belgian chocolate gelato again was creamy and rich.
Pizza Express has their Vintage menu on till 19th December but you find their classics on the regular menu as well. The pizzas are obviously not to be missed and also not their dough balls with dips.
