PizzaExpress has expanded its vegan range to a total of eighteen dishes in the past year and plans to introduce further plant-based offerings this year.

Teamed up with Veganuary, Pizza Express offers free Dough Balls on Tuesdays in January, offered with pestorissa, a vegan harissa spiced tomato dip.

PizzaExpress’ vegan pizza, Giardiniera has been proving to be one of the most popular across the chain, having seen a 36% increase in year-on-year sales and selling 6,000 of them weekly in supermarkets. The latest pizza, Puttanesca, is topped with jackfruit marinated in puttanesca sauce, tomatoes, olives, capers, red onion, chilli, garlic & herbs, and vegan mozzarella alternative.

Soy milk for hot drinks is now also available in all Pizza Express restaurants.

For the Spring, PizzaExpress is planning to feature hummus for the first time as a new ingredient for pizza, with compliment toppings of passata sauce, chargrilled aubergines, pestorissa, roquita pepper, jalapenos, and rocket.
