To officially launch this new menu by the Pizzaiolos, we as TWCI – The Writers Collective of India were invited with other Bloggers and Media persons. It was a fun filled evening as we were shown how to make pizzas and what exactly is the style and art of making pizzas at Pizza Express. 

We all made pizzas with our own hands using the ingredients and equipment provided to us. It was real fun as we all got to know the philosophy behind the dishes designed. A pizzaiolo also showed his acrobats in flipping a pizza base while dancing to a hit Bollywood number.

The best as always was yet to be unveiled, the Cheese Cake ….. I must tell you; this is the best Cheese Cake in town with no fuss at all. Pure flavors of awesome Philadelphia cheese served with gelato or ice cream. 


Overall, Pizza Express is the place to be. One of the best pizza places in town with other offerings which are equally good and very well curated…….
