Pizza lovers and bargain hunters are in for a treat with the opening of a brand new PizzaExpress restaurant at East Midlands Designer Outlet, South Normanton.
The new restaurant, located off junction 28 of the M1, can seat 170 people and means jobs for 30 new team members, comprising seven pizzaiolos and 18 waiters and waitresses. An estimated 1,000 kilos of dough will be used in the first month as the team prepares to serve up 5,000 pizzas and 1,000 portions of PizzaExpress’ iconic Dough Balls.

In addition, the new restaurant will become the first PizzaExpress restaurant to trial a new breakfast menu to customers. The tempting menu includes delicious, Italian pastries, which can be served with any hot drink for just £3.50, oven baked eggs made to order, and Rotolini – PizzaExpress’ famous dough, folded and filled with a free range egg and the best PizzaExpress fillings, and served straight from the oven. All dishes can be ordered to go or enjoyed in the restaurant between 8.30am and 11.30am and bargain hunters can collect stamps so, after five breakfasts, the sixth is free.*
