IF you’ve made a New Year’s resolution to watch your waistline, but still fancy a delicious treat, then the new Leggera range at PizzaExpress in Touchwood is the perfect way to indulge yourself without the consequences.
The new Leggera menu is packed with luscious, lighter choices, including starters, mains, desserts and wine, full of gorgeous Italian flavour. Each pizza has a hole in the middle, filled with a fresh portion of salad; accompanied by a glass of new Leggera wine, which is lower in calories and alcohol, so you can enjoy a meal out for less than 600 calories.
Choose from a succulent selection of fresh, handmade pizzas with an array of gourmet toppings to suit your tastes, from the mouth-watering Contadina with chicken, spinach, peppers and a fiery Tabasco kick, to the tantalizing Gustosa with proscuitto cotto ham, mushrooms, yellow peppers and thyme. And whether you are vegetarian or just fancy a more classic pizza, you’ll love the simple Margherita Leggera with fior di latte mozzarella, santos tomatoes marinated in extra virgin olive oil, garlic and fresh oregano, finished with basil leaves.
For a bigger, crispier Italian pizza, why not stretch out any of your favourite classic pizzas to a larger Romana base? With a thin, crunchy texture topped with your favourite ingredients, the Romana base will transport your tastebuds to Rome in no time.
For a new flavour combination, the new Al Tirolo Romana pizza with its delicious mixture of ham, creamy Fontal cheese and Porchini, Portobello and cup mushrooms is sure to become your new favourite.
If you’ve got a sweet tooth, you’ll love the gorgeous new range of smaller Dolcetti desserts. Perfectly formed, each serving is just enough to satisfy without making you feel too full and can be served with your choice of coffee to finish off the evening.
