This Pizzeria Offers A Unique Laksa-Flavored Pizza!
Travel through Asia's flavors with a bite of these pizzas.
We all love a classic Italian pizza, but from time to time, it won’t hurt to try something new. Pizza Express is introducing new pizza flavors that explore the flavors of Asia–more specifically, the cuisine of Singapore, Indonesia, and China. Most of these pizzas are Romana-type pizzas, which have a really thin crust with crunchy outer edges.
A standout among the new pizza offerings is the spicy Laksa Romana (P650). For those who aren’t familiar with Singapore’s famous laksa, this is a spicy noodle soup made with thick noodles, different types of meat, and aspicy coconut milk sauce. If you have a high tolerance for spicy food, Pizza Express’ take on this Singapore dish uses a creamy laksa sauce as the base then topped with mussels, squid, crabsticks, and quail eggs.
Another spicy option from Pizza Express is the Chili Crab Romana (P590). This pizza is topped with Pizza Express’ sweet chili sauce, topped with sweet crab meat, crunchy mantou croutons, and seedless green chilies. It had a burning-your-tongue kind of heat not because of a spicy sauce base or meat, but with slices of red and green chilies added as toppings.
The Peking Duck Romana (P590), has the strongest savory flavor compared to the four other new flavors. Pizza Express’ Peking Duck Romana is a salty and savory pizza made with a peppery house-roasted Peking-style duck with hoisin sauce. What we love about this pizza is that it also has slivers of cucumber on top, which helps in toning down the saltiness coming from the duck and sauce.
If you love the flavors of the Indonesian cuisine, Pizza Express also offers the Rendang Classic (P590), topped with shredded braised beef with spices, chilies, coconut milk, and mozzarella on top of their classic pizza. The Chicken Satay Romana (P495) is a slightly salty-sweet pizza that is topped with barbecue chicken with traditional sweet-savory peanut sauce, pickled vegetables, and creamy mozzarella on top.
Pizza Express’ Laksa Romana, Chili Crab Romana, Peking Duck Romana, Rendang Classic, and Chicken Satay Romana are available until June 30 only.
