PizzaExpress recipe book is response to nation’s love for restaurant chain

The nation’s love affair with a popular high street restaurant chain is set to grow even deeper in the coming weeks.

An official cookbook ‘PizzaExpress: From Italy with Love’, will hit shelves on September 16, following an overwhelming response to the pizza maker’s recipe releases throughout lockdown for customers to recreate at home.

Featuring recipes for over 100 PizzaExpress favourites from the last 56 years including Dough Balls, Margherita and Sloppy Giuseppe as well as spicy, seafood, vegan and veggie pizzas, PizzaExpress: From Italy with Love caters to every mood and palette.

Alongside 68 pizza recipes, many of which are ready in minutes, there are salads, desserts, dressings and sauces that are set to create a meal for every date-night, birthday or Friday night in.

Jane Treasure, Food and Beverage Director at PizzaExpress, said: “We are so excited to be recreating all the passion and expertise of our pizzaiolos and kitchen teams in our customers’ homes with our beautiful new book.

“It has been so much fun digging through the legendary PizzaExpress archives and cooking up these recipes for millions of pizza lovers at home as they fire up their ovens. We’re sure every recipe will bring as much joy to our customers as they do to us.”

Anna Valentine, executive publisher at The Orion Publishing Group, added: “As a lifelong fan of PizzaExpress, I’m thrilled to be publishing this sumptuous cookbook. When PizzaExpress released their Dough Ball recipe during lockdown, it went viral showing there is a huge appetite to bring the magic of the restaurant into our homes.”
