Trying to juggle working all the hours, family life and healthy eating is hard work. The temptation to just throw something in the oven is overwhelming. Simple food that the whole family will enjoy, that doesn’t take hours to prepare. This usually results in un-healthy which isn’t at all helpful with my eternal pursuit to lose weight. Or at least that was the case, before the Pizza Express Leggera at home was a thing.
We love eating at Pizza Express and I tend to order the Leggera when we do, it doesn’t compromise on flavour but is lighter and healthier making it a win win for me. The addition of the Leggera to the Pizza Express at home range is fantastic news for pizza lovers who don’t love the calories! The Leggera at home pizzas are under four hundred calories for the whole pizza! I’m a bit excited by this. The best thing? These pizzas cook in just 6-8 minutes from fresh or 9-11 from frozen! Quick, convenient and healthy (and pizza!).
The Pizza Express Leggera at home pizzas are the perfect size for one person. We’re greedy and so cooked four to go between the three of us. We ended up with one and half pizzas left over (Aria isn’t a huge eater). This meant guilt free cold pizza for lunch the next day!
The Leggera at home is currently available in two flavours, chicken & vegetable and squash, kale & goat’s cheese. Now, Spencer is one of these whose mindset is that if it doesn’t have meat on it, it’s pointless. He rolls his eyes at me if I order a vegetarian meal when we go out and is never pleased when I cook vegetarian food at home, which is why I was surprised to see him reaching for more and more of the kale, squash & goats cheese Leggera. I pulled him up on this (and also mocked him, quite a bit) and he admitted that on this occasion the meat free pizza was actually quite delicious.
The Pizza Express Leggera at home are currently available in Waitrose, Ocado and Sainsbury’s.
