Pizza Express has announced the opening of its new fully-vegan restaurant in Aldwych, opening September 21.
It follows the successful introduction of vegan pizzas to its main menu over the past few years.
The new restaurant will feature a brand new, fully vegan menu featuring meat-free versions of five of its main favourites.
The company has developed the range with Jack and Bry for just over a year, including the creation of an exclusive vegan Pepperoni.
Jane Treasure, food and beverage director at Pizza Express, said: “The launch of our Sloppy Vegan this summer was just a taste of what was to come. Sloppy Vegan was a huge hit with customers, and it goes without saying that we’re incredibly excited to launch even more vegan versions of classic PizzaExpress recipes across the UK this Autumn.
“It took just over a year to develop an exclusive new Vegan Pepperoni ingredient with our partners Jack & Bry, working tirelessly with our tasting panels to perfect them – so our customers can enjoy the same mouth-watering flavour profiles as the originals, without any animal products.”
Shadi Halliwell, chief customer officer at Pizza Express, added: “Vegan PizzaExpress” is our first restaurant that will serve our vegan menu exclusively and is a true showcase of these authentic flavours that we’ve been perfecting since 1965.
“We’re thrilled to finally open the doors and can’t wait to welcome everyone from across London and beyond as they come to enjoy our wonderful new vegan menu.”
