The operator, who last week revealed it was launching a 295-calorie Superfood Salad, has today started offering six dishes and a beer with Coeliac UK's NGCI accreditation that means they can be eaten by diners with coeliac disease or who want to avoid gluten for other reasons.
"We know that eating out safely is a top concern for people with coeliac disease, so we’re delighted that Pizza Express is recognising the importance of catering for this market," said Coeliac UK chief executive Sarah Sleet.
Today's launch of Pizza Express's new summer menu also includes a refresh of its children's Piccolo menu. The restaurant chain enlisted the help of The Children's Food Trust to make the menu healthier, offering vegetables with dough balls and balsamic vinegar and olive oil instead of garlic butter. The fudge and cake pieces have been removed from the Piccolo Sundaes and the Nutella Dough Balls taken off the menu.
