Product Description

A pizza base topped with tomato sauce, roasted red peppers, chargrilled chicken, mozzarella cheese, Regato cheese, drizzled with green pesto and sprinkled with black pepper.
We've been perfecting the art of pizza ever since our founder, Peter Boizot, brought the great taste of Italian pizza to the UK.

50 years on, you can enjoy our best ever Classic pizzas at home, with simple, fresh ingredients on our signature base. The Classic has all the qualities of our original restaurant pizza, which hasn't changed since 1965.
All it needs now is to be cooked to perfection.
Enjoy.

Preparation and Usage

They are all individually hand made using the same key ingredients. But cooking is so important. So here are some tips from our pizzaiolos that should help you make beautiful pizza at home.

Cook it our way
1. Prepare your pizza. Remove all packaging including base disc. Even out the toppings and drizzle around a teaspoon of oil to make it go crispy without drying out. In the restaurant we use extra virgin oil on this pizza, but garlic oil and chilli oil also work well.
2. Hot and fast. Put your pizza on the top shelf of the oven, once the oven has reached 200°C. Ideally use a preheated pizza stone or a pizza pan with holes in the base. It is fine to put it directly on the oven rack, but never on a solid baking tray.
3. It is ready? Cook for 10-12 minutes. The cheese will have gone golden brown and the base nice and crispy all the way to the centre.

Eat it your way
In our restaurants you can have pizzas exactly how you want them.
Many people like to add freshly ground black pepper, but here are some other ideas.
Feel like an Il Padrino?
If you add some sliced red or yellow peppers and some cherry tomatoes to this pizza before cooking you will almost have yourself our famous 'Godfather' pizza.
A little salad?
After cooking scatter over some fresh basil leaves and perhaps a little grating of Parmesan.

Great tasting pizza

I love this Pizza. The base is the right size for one person, cooks just right, not too crispy or too soggy. The flavours are really tasty.

Nothing Like Restaurants Pizza

Strong smokey taste in this pizza which put me off eating it as it tastes like smoked sausage. This taste is not present in the Pizza Express pizzas at their restaurants. The base is very different also. Very pale in comparison in every sense of the word.

Happy day finding Pizza Express via Ocado!

I miss the restaurant, discovered these, have never looked back. I don't add olive oil though, or it runs into the oven! And this variety is my top favourite. Not keen on the new 'light' low fat ones, and this one isn't fattening anyway. These are often on offer too. Heaven!
