Pizza Express Leggera Range Review*

I am a huge fan of Pizza and I could genuinely live off it but unfortunately it's not the healthiest thing in the world so it's something I only try to have every so often now. As I'm such a huge lover of all kinds of Pizza, when the chance came up to work with Pizza Express and review their new Leggera range, there was no way I could say no!
The Leggera range is basically 3 light pizzas that all have a multigrain base topped with fresh and delicious ingredients. There is Prawn and Broccoli, Chicken and Vegetable, and Squash, Kale and Goats Cheese. They are a perfect size for one meaning if you get in late from work and don't want to cook, or if you're partners away and you don't want to make a big meal for just you, one of these can just be thrown in the oven. They are so handy to have in the fridge ready.

I've actually tried Pizza Express pizzas at home before and always really enjoyed them so I was really excited to see what this new range was like and how it compared. I picked up the Prawn and Broccoli Pizza and the Squash, Kale and Goats Cheese Pizza last week from my local Waitrose for £3.79 each. Unfortunately they didn't have the Chicken and Vegetable one at the time which is actually the one I was looking forward to the most so I'll have to keep an eye out for that one. I was still really excited to be trying the other two though and couldn't wait to see what they both tasted like.
It says on the packets both of these only take around 7 minutes to cook but I kept them in for about 10 just because I like my pizza crispy! I'm so impressed by how quickly they cook, there aren't many meals that you can make in that amount of time so that was the first thing that I was really happy with. Both looked absolutely delicious when they came out of the oven and even though I'm not the biggest fan of seafood I genuinely thought even the prawn and broccoli looked really appetising which was the one I was a bit sceptical about. When it comes to the taste, I couldn't fault the leggera range.The base was really yummy and crispy and to be honest I couldn't even tell it was wholemeal. I'm one of those people who really loves the base and the crust on a pizza so it was quite important to me that I couldn't tell these were much healthier for me than a normal pizza, but the base was really, really good. It had a nice crunch but wasn't over the top. They cooked perfectly. I loved how different the the toppings were to usual pizzas but out of the two, I think the Squash, Kale and Goats Cheese was the best. That's just down to me not being a massive fan of prawns but I genuinely think Prawn and Broccoli Pizza would be perfect for those who love seafood. With this range there is definitely something for everyone, and as they are on wholegrain bases, they are genuinely much healthier than so many other pizzas so brilliant if you maybe calorie count or just want to keep an eye on what you're eating. They were the perfect size and just the right amount for one person. There have been times where I've been in alone for the night and haven't been sure what to make just for one but these are brilliant for times like that.

I was so impressed with the leggera range and have high hopes for the Chicken and Vegetable one when I can get my hands on it. I'll definitely be looking out for this range in future aswell as all the other pizzas, Pizza Express do. I couldn't recommend them enough! If you think you'd like these pizzas and want to try them for yourself they are currently available from Waitrose.

I'd love to know if you've tried anything from this range and which one you think would be your favourite! Or just what sort of Pizza you normally like?
