Pizza Express launch DIY pizza kits – and they start from £14

PIZZA Express has launched new DIY pizza kits so you can still get your food fix from home.

It’s good news for Pizza Express fans as restaurants remain shut for dine-in – although you can still order for delivery and collection.

The new DIY pizza kits cost between £14 and £16 and include margherita and American hot.

Each box, which will be available from January 11, allows you to make two 14-inch pizzas.

For £14, you can buy one kit with everything you need for two margherita pizzas, or it’s £16 for the American hot.

If you can’t decide between the two flavours, you can buy a kit that makes one margherita and one American hot for £14.

What’s included in the Pizza Express DIY kits

HERE’S what you get in each Pizza Express DIY kit:

Margherita – £14 (makes two 14-inch Romana pizzas)

  • PizzaExpress dough
  • PizzaExpress passata tin
  • Mozzarella
  • Herbs and spices

American Hot – £16 (makes two 14-inch Romana pizzas)

  • PizzaExpress dough
  • PizzaExpress passata tin
  • Mozzarella
  • Pepperoni
  • Hot green Roquito peppers
  • Herbs and spices

Margherita & American Hot – £14 (makes one 14-inch Romana Margherita, and one 14-inch Romana American Hot)

  • PizzaExpress dough
  • PizzaExpress passata tin
  • Mozzarella
  • Pepperoni
  • Hot green Roquito peppers
  • Herbs and spices

In contrast, a margherita direct from a Pizza Express restaurant costs around £9.95 – so this gets reduced to £7 each if you make two yourself from the DIY kit.

It's £12 for an American hot, so making two from the kit is the equivalent of £8 each.

Prices when dining in at a Pizza Express do vary depending on your location, though.

It’s the first time in Pizza Express’ 56-year history that it’s offered DIY pizza kits.

But you can’t buy the kits direct from Pizza Express, instead you’ll need to order them through greatfood2u.co.uk.

Pizza Express isn’t the first company to partner with Great Food 2 U. 

The online store also has DIY kits from Franco Manca, with prices starting from £12.50, and TGI Fridays, whose kits cost a pricier £25.

Zoe Bowley, managing director at Pizza Express, said: “We are delighted to be launching these brand-new kits, giving our loyal customers the chance to recreate two of our most popular recipes whilst we’re all at home. 

“With these kits we aim to make that even easier, particularly by providing our delicious dough, which has been perfected over 56 years.

“We’ll be delivering the very same ingredients we use in our pizzerias so that the PizzaExpress experience can still be enjoyed wherever you are.”
