PizzaExpress 'banks' on success with new Manchester city centre branch – dough YOU want 25% off?

Italian-loving Mancunians now have the chance to grab a pizza of the action at Manchester’s newest PizzaExpress.

The city centre restaurant is located in the opulent marble surroundings of a former King Street bank with the new décor complementing the imposing space.

A whopping 332 kilos of dough will be stretched, tossed and served as part of the 5,000 pizzas and 1,600 portions of dough balls that customers will chomp their way through in the first month.

MM readers also have the chance to experience all of this with 25% off until August 7 (excluding Saturdays) with the voucher at the bottom of the page. 


MAMMA MIA! One of the restaurant's first pizzas

Manchester King Street PizzaExpress manager Johanna Davies explained that she’s looking forward to welcome lots of hungry customers through the door.

She said: “We have a beautiful new restaurant and can’t wait to show it off to our customers.

“We have a friendly and enthusiastic team who are looking forward to welcoming everyone over a delicious pizza.

“Our new restaurant will be a great spot for everything from a business lunch or post-work dinner to a special celebration – we’re delighted to be bringing PizzaExpress to King Street.”


CHEERS! PizzaExpress enjoys a well-stocked bar

Their latest menu boasts old favourites such as traditional pasta dishes and pizzas but also includes a wider range of waistline-friendly Leggera dishes which contain fewer than 500 calories.

And those with special dietary requirements aren’t left nursing a boring bowl of plain pasta either as four gluten-free options and a cheese-free vegan pizza have been added to the menu.
