PizzaExpress

Vegans seem to really love pizza, especially when there is a dairy-free cheese on offer, so Pizza Express remains a firm favourite.

The pizzeria has many vegan-friendly dishes in its restaurants, with pizzas and salad dressings also available in its ‘Cook at Home’ supermarket range.

The first ever vegan PizzaExpress launched in Aldwych last Autumn, exclusively serving plant-based goodness so vegan, flexi or just plain curious pizza lovers can tuck into even more vegan flavours. The current menu features its biggest ever range of vegan dishes including the American Jack – smoky jackfruit ‘pepperoni’ and tomato with its signature vegan mozzarella alternative; and the Vegan Ad Astra’ – topped with Quorn, sweet red peppers, Cajun spice, red onion, tomato, garlic oil and vegan mozzarella alternative.

For Veganuary 2022, following thousands of customer calls to PizzaExpress for a vegan version of its iconic fan-favourite, the chain have launched vegan butter – the perfect side-kick for its beloved Dough Balls and pizza crusts. Available in the Aldwych location now but rolling out to 360 stores in March 2022.
