Pizza Express Delights with New Vegan Christmas Menu Items

Pizza Express knows that Christmas is the time for feasting! And with new snowball dough balls and a delicious mushroom pizza on its festive menu, it’s time to celebrate

Pizza Express has Christmas all wrapped up with its new Mushroom & Pine Nut Pizza

Ah, Christmas. The food, the family, the festivities… oh, and did we mention the food? If ever there were a time to indulge, Christmas would surely be it. And thanks to the wonderful creative foodie team at Pizza Express, vegans are definitely not missing out on the winter celebrations this year (and there’s not a nut roast in sight!).

This year is the first time that Pizza Express is dedicating a completely vegan dish to its Christmas menu (how times are changing), and take it from us, it’s absolutely delicious! The Mushroom and Pine Nut Pizza blends yuletide favourites of pine kernels and rosemary, with Portobello mushrooms, and of course the house dairy-free mozzarella alternative cheeze. The addition of a vegan pizza to its festive menu makes dining at Pizza Express even more inclusive than ever. Pizza Express also announced recently that its gluten-free pizza bases are now suitable for vegans, so absolutely no one is left out, regardless of allergens.

The iconic Dough Balls receive a festive makeover with icing sugar, cinnamon and a vegan fruit coulis dip

Not one to pass on desert, Pizza Express has heightened its already delicious Dough Balls with a sprinkling of icing sugar and cinnamon to make them suitable for those with a sweet tooth! The aptly named Snowball Dough Balls can be made vegan by opting for the fruit coulis dipping sauce, which is sure to end your meal on a sweeter note.

What’s more, there’s no need to wait until Christmas to get your hands on these delicious vegan dishes. Pizza Express is launching its new festive menu on 20 November, just in time for World Vegan Month. Yet another fantastic reason to give veganism a try this November and get into the festive spirit!
