Pizza Express has given us a reason to smile today. Not that we needed more of a reason than it’s Friday and not hammering with rain. Score!
The legendary pizza franchise has taken a load of its iconic menu items and turned them in to a ‘cook at home’ meal deal range, which you can buy from the supermarket.
Because, yes, we do love going out to a Pizza Express restaurant for dinner, but we don’t always want to be forced to put actual clothes on (you get it, right?) And a Pizza Express is delivery is great too, but this is an even more wallet-friendly option.
How it works is, each meal deal feeds two and costs £8. You simply pick a main, a side and a dessert. Main options include the cult classic Pollo Pesto to the tried-and-tested Risotto con Funghi and Lasagna Classica, while sides on offer are the iconic Dough Balls, the brand-new Garlic & Mozzarella Flatbread and Mixed Salad with a sachet of House Light Dressing. And for pudding, you have two options: Chocolate & Salted Caramel Tarts and Vanilla Cheesecake slices. Yum!
The full range is as follows:
Lasagna Classica (new)
Pollo Pesto Pasta (new)
Risotto con Funghi (new)
Romana Margherita Speciale

Richard Mills, Head of Retail at PizzaExpress, said: “The launch of this new deal with Tesco not only offers customers restaurant-quality meals at a great price, but also marks our biggest launch of new recipes into supermarkets for years. We know how popular our Homemade Favourites series was last year, which gave fans the opportunity to try their hand at recreating restaurant dishes that weren’t yet available in retail – and the response to restaurant favourites such our Pollo Pesto filled us with so much confidence that we had to adapt it for retail.
“Similarly, Risotto con Funghi and Lasagna Classica have always gone down well in restaurants, so these are tried-and-tested flavours that we are sure will resonate with shoppers. Our first foray into desserts complements the new mains and side dishes, but also allows us to offer customers the opportunity to enjoy the full ‘dine out’ experience at home, together as part of one great deal.”
The new Pizza Express meal deal is available from Tesco stores now.
