Pizza Express Christmas Dinner


Traditional Christmas dinner is a thing of the past now, as a lot of restaurants are now bringing in traditional Christmas dinner and mixing it with their menu. The other day my friend checked in on Facebook at Pizza Express and wrote Christmas dinner, I was like "what Pizza Express do Christmas dinners?" I've always wanted to try Pizza Express, but have never been so when my dad finished work I was like hey let's go to Pizza Express for Christmas dinner. 

I read the Pizza Express Christmas menu online before going and didn't think it was well explained. It said 2 course meal starter and pizza for £14.95 or add a Prosecco for £17.95. I assumed the Christmas menu was set 2 course and you couldn't just go have a pizza, but they have the Christmas pizzas on the normal menu for about £12.50. I really wanted to try the snowball doughballs dessert, so I'd have been happy with just a pizza and dessert. I looked at the dessert prices on their own each dessert was around £5.50, so if you want just the pizza and dessert, you're better of getting the 2 course meal and get the dessert for £3.

Everyone who knows me knows how much I love Irn bru, so imagine when I asked for Irn bru and they said they have ran out but have the diet Irn bru. I have tried diet Irn bru, but some how find it has a bad taste. I ended up choosing Fanta. 

Starter I choose
Pork and pancetta croquettes, served with apple and cider sauce.


Pizza
Sprout and pancetta romana, with chestnut mushrooms, red onions, pine kernels, mozzarella, fresh parsley and a free range egg.

Side 
Polenta chips 

Dessert
Snowball doughballs, a sprinkle of cinnamon, icing sugar and a vanilla cream. 

I loved Pizza Express Christmas dinner, it was a nice change although we did wait over an hour from getting our starter to getting our pizza.  When the pizza finally came, they did offer us the desserts for free. Am not sure if it was because it was busy with Christmas or we got forgotten. They had no Irn bru except diet which doesn't taste the same, so I had to take fanta. Also they didn't have any Apple and cider sauce for my starter, so had honey and mustard to why the photo may look different to how it's advertised.
