Melting cheese, crispy crust and a myriad of toppings to choose from; nothing can really go wrong with that. Pizza really is the takeaway king - and for good reason. It is also one of the ultimate home order foods when you have friends over to watch the game or just have a fun night in together.
There are so many places to choose from that it's sometimes almost impossible. That's why we have searched and present the best pizza meal deals you can get in Leicester - because we believe that the more, the merrier!
1. Stonebaked Pizza Co
You can tell from their name that these guys are serious about the pizza business. Each pizza is freshly prepared and cooked for 180 seconds in their ovens before delivered to you in the form of the perfect combination of a light, crispy base and an abundance of toppings. Their insanely popular signature Margherita, topped with mozzarella, cherry tomatoes and fresh basil is just the start.
Here, you can choose anything from Caribbean Chicken - a winning combo of chicken and Jerk BBQ sauce on creamy mozzarella and accompanied with caramelised and red onion and pineapple slices - to Carbonara turned pizza topped with bacon, egg, grana padano and olive oil. Their meal deals cover all kinds of occasions, ranging from a Build Your Own Pizza Deal for One to a Pizza Deal for Four, which includes four pizzas, two sides and four soft drinks for under £40.
Prezzo does not really need much introduction – if anyone knows the secret to an authentic Italian tomato sauce and a thin crust hand-stretched the old school way, it is them. Here you can find anything that is typically on offer in a great Italian restaurant in the heart of Rome: from signature pizzas and refreshing salads to great pasta and risotto. They also serve calzone, which is an added bonus – they delicately brush this Italian style folded pizza with garlic butter and top it with grated cheese. Try the Spicy Carne Calzone, filled with delicious chicken, succulent meatballs, mushrooms and crushed chillies, folded in their unique blend of Bolognese sauce and Italian cheese.
They also serve a lighter version of their mouth-watering pizza, under 650 calories and served with a side salad; but if you are not particularly sensitive about that stuff, then their meal deals are a life saver. Their Per Uno meal deal makes sure you have your pizza and your garlic bread and eat them too for under £10, and their Tutta Famiglia deal will feed your family with four pizzas of your choice, two garlic breads and two sides for less than £40.
3. Pizza Express
They are certainly doing something right at Pizza Express, because their pizza recipe has remained the same since 1965. Here you will find bold, hearty combinations that still stay true to the Italian tradition. Try the Sloppy Giuseppe, with hot spiced beef, green pepper and red onion, or our favourite Fiorentina: spinach and free-range egg with olives, delicately sprinkled with garlic oil and finished with Gran Milano cheese.
The people behind Pizza Express know that when you dine out with children things can get overwhelming; that is why they designed meal deals especially for the little ones. Try the Piccolo American Set Menu, a combo of a piccolo pizza pepperoni, dough balls starter served with garlic butter, and a brownie to finish it off, while the adults dive in their regular mouth-watering pizzas. Everybody's happy!
