Our passion for Italian food can be traced back to our founder, Peter Boizot and his love affair with Italy. Unhappy with the pizza in London, he shipped over an authentic oven, knocked down a wall to squeeze it in, and opened our very first restaurant on Wardour Street.
Ever since 1965 when our founder, Peter Boizot, opened our first restaurant in Soho, the same PizzaExpress values of great food, evocative music, and distinctive design have remained in our DNA. This is one recipe we’ve never changed, and today we take the same pride in offering great hospitality and unforgettable experiences.
When it comes to PizzaExpress ingredients, we never compromise. After all, they’re the foundation for our great flavours. The same goes for our commitment to bringing fresh ideas to the table – whether in the form of the American Hot, Romana, or Leggera pizza, Dough Balls, or Peroni beer.
We like to create great experiences as much as we enjoy making fantastic pizzas. We trace our love of a good party back to our founder – Peter was a great host. His ‘party spirit’ lives on today at PizzaExpress, with a variety of fun celebrations you can enjoy.
All those PizzaExpress favourites you know and love have crossed countries and continents to be wherever you are.
