Italian restaurant chain PizzaExpress has launched new Leggera & Romana ranges for the new year.
The pizzaiolos at PizzaExpress have been in the kitchen crafting the Leggeras to bring consumers the pizzas they know, such as the American Hot, but with only 500 calories.
They each have a new lighter, thinner Romana base, but don’t reduce the amount of toppings.
With more toppings, a salad in the centre and only 500 calories, they hope to appeal to consumers looking for lighter options – without having to turn their back on the pizza’s they know and enjoy.
As well as the lighter base varieties, PizzaExpress have launched a new range of “authentic Italian pizzas” – Romanas.
They all have a thin and crispy base, which allow the toppings to take centre stage.
To increase their menu further, the new Meatball Bolognese also hopes to lure in more customers.
A spicy Bolognese sauce with beef meatballs and a handful of roquito peppers, the pasta dish is finished with shaved grana padano cheese.
