In the popular suburb of Headingley, a short drive from the centre of Leeds and with its own easily accessed railway station, Pizza Express is a pizzeria serving up wonderful Italian inspired cuisine with a focus on flavour and style. Since opening their doors in 1965, Pizza Express has become one of the UK’s most loved family of restaurants, with their Headingley branch being of no execption.
Pizza Express uniquely designs each one of its restaurants in a fun, bright and stylish way. The Headingley branch is spacious, colourful and inviting, using bright greens in contrast with elegant duck egg blues to create a stunning modern design which functions well as a venue for a casual meal or as a destination for more special occasions. Situated within a popular student area, famous for its vintage shops, independent cafes and pubs, the décor of Pizza Express Headingley is ideal for students, offering a richly fashionable environment at affordable prices.
The menu offers lots of choice regardless of your personal tastes, with plenty of options outside of its extensive pizza range that will really offer something for everyone. Try a nutritious salad absolutely bursting with flavour for your main meal, such as the Pollo Pancetta Salad, tossed with chicken and crispy pancetta and a variety of Mediterranean vegetables, finished with extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar and Gran Moravia cheese. For something a little heartier, choose a Calzone, such as the Calzone Verdure, stuffed with goat’s cheese, chargrilled vegetables, pesto, baby spinach and Gran Moravia cheese, served with a spicy arrabbiata sauce. If you are feeling brave, try the hottest pizza on the menu, created by guest chef Francesco Mazzei. The Calabrese pizza is topped with spicy Calabrese sausage, hot soft n’duja sausage, finely chopped red chillies, roquito peppers, red and yellow peppers, mozzarella, rocket, pesto, oregano and Gran Moravia cheese.
