What do you do when your friends are coming back to town after a year stint abroad, you eat pizza. 🙂 We had not been to Pizza Express and after hearing the awesome reviews, there was no reason to wait.
I had the Ask me app downloaded on the phone. All we had to do was a quick search based on location and the intuitive search shall yield results.
The location of choice was Powai and the place to eat was Pizza Express. A classy, upscale pizzeria with an attitude to match with the pizza quality. However please note that this place is not ONLY into pizzas, they make kick ass pastas, desserts and appetizers as well.
The menu is extensive and for pizzas we have two crust choices: Romana and Classic. Romana is Thinner, bigger and crispier.
Here is what we ordered:
Verdure in the Romana Crust- Verdure is one of their best selling pizzas. It is made with char-grilled veggies, Grilled tomato, mozzarella and pesto as the base. The best thing about this one is the sweetness of the peppers and zucchini on that gorgeous crust. We loved it so much that we had to order two of these. 😉 The loaded pizza has all the good things in life ❤
Quattra Formaggi in the classic crust- This classic four cheese pizza. Mozzarella, gorgonzola, emilgrana and fontal make this oozy gooey pizza. The crust to topping ratio is fabulous. This 8 piece pizza shall happily satiate the cheesy lovers.
Dough Balls- This was one of the specials they had, dough balls risen to perfection and served with pesto, soft butter and sun dried capsicum sauce. Yumm yumm yummm…. The gorgeous and generous olive oil in the sauces get soaked in the warm dough balls. It was absolutely beautiful. We wiped the plate clean in 5 minutes.
Pasta Siciliana- This one was to die for as well. The spicy eggplant, basil, tomato, chilly and baby mozzarella wrap the penne pasta with perfection. The spice level was not too high as well. I had never tried eggplant with pasta before and trust me it could not have been better. The eggplant breaks down and makes a wonderful compliment to the tomato. Thankfully the dish is not acidic at all because tomatoes do that to the pasta. Sorry for now putting up a pic, we were just in a hurry to gobble it up 🙂
Tropical Mocktail- Watermelon, mint and lemon is a basic mix that we make at home as well. So there was nothing more happening in this one.
They serve gorgeous desserts as well. We didnt get to try it but I hear the banoffee pie is to die for. They also have a dessert platter with cheesecake, fudge cake and tiramisu.
My only regret would be that they didn’t have salads. What kind of Italian pizzeria does not have salads? It was really shocking as we had gone there for lunch and it was a weekend too. They should have been well stocked [at all times in the real world] .
So here is my rating:
