To be so annoyed at pizza express.

I just rang to order the folks a takeaway for their friends (to pick up later) They want 4 Calzone.
Pizza express will not do calzone to take away.
Why? They haven't the right boxes.
They are cross, that's almost 45 pounds of food!!

I'm still pissed off that pizza express got rid of the tortellini from their menu.

The only thing I liked there, and delicious it was too.

I used to get a calzone takeaway from zizzi and they put it in a normal box with no exploding issues. Good thing i am going there tomrrow as i really want one now!

You disrespected saggy? Look out.

The 25% off voucher (Jan 1st - 3rd offer) applied to takeaway but not set meals to take away.

I used it tonight. Not on Calzone though ;-)

And calling it a fancy name wink

PickledInAPearTree Wed 02-Jan-13 18:12:49

I like the restartente ones from dr oetker. They are two pound!

Grips my shit paying all that money for bread tomatoes cheese and a few bits on top grin

Our Pizza Express let their liquor license expire and forgot to renew it. They can't serve alcohol till after January. Guess where I won't be going for lunch. grin

Pickles77 Wed 02-Jan-13 17:50:18

See I agree SP what's wrong with a nice donner?

Pickles77 Wed 02-Jan-13 17:48:47

Lock stock and two smoking calzone's

I've never been to Pizza Express and i refuse to pay £15+ for a pizza from Dominoes.

My local take away does pizza, chips, can of Pepsi and a dip for £5. Best thing ever

Pickles77 Wed 02-Jan-13 17:47:50

I am alive.... I've got no saggy calzone on my heed, nor my beeed and none in my car.
Now I have to listen to the ummming and arrrrhing of them over their calzone whilst I chill upstairs.

"It's Little Pepperoni. He's been exploded by Saggy Calzone's gang."
"Sheeeit."

SirSugar Wed 02-Jan-13 17:43:53

I never accept Pizza prices from any of the delivery ones and always ask for further discount and always get at least another £5 off

PickledInAPearTree Wed 02-Jan-13 17:42:11

I put calzone heeeads
In people's beeeds

Tee or worse. An exploding calzone. That would put the fear of god into many grin

'Saggy take this calzone to Pickles. I trust you yo do a good job, if not you will be garlic bread'

YABU-pizza express is just awful awful awful, order from somewhere else, anywhere!

I've not had a good experience in any of the pizza expresses ive been to, and now i just refuse to give them my money.

Tee2072 Wed 02-Jan-13 17:38:58

Imagine finding a calzone head in your bed...

Has she been 'Calzoned' by the Saggy Mafia? She has a certain amount of time to get it from Pizza Express to home before it explodes

ResolutelyCheeky Wed 02-Jan-13 17:32:03

Love it holyfool grin
"Saggy Calzone, you come to me on the day of my daughter's wedding?"

PickledInAPearTree Wed 02-Jan-13 17:27:00

Fuck good luck pickles. This sounds dangerous saggy calezone could explode on you at any moment! grin

JustAHolyFool Wed 02-Jan-13 17:16:57

Saggy Calzone sounds like a shit mafia boss.

CajaDeLaMemoria Wed 02-Jan-13 17:16:29

They used to deliver them, but they'd always be unedible. They'd explode all over the box, and you'd be left with scraps.

They stopped a while ago, and told us when we ordered that they wouldn't be delivering them anymore as they can't offer the same quality from the take-away side. The calzone is cooked on hotter for less time for take-away orders, and the quality is rubbish. They found they were offering too many refunds and getting too many complaints.

They might allow you to go and pick them up, if you want, but they won't offer a refund if they explode while you are transporting them.

Pickles77 Wed 02-Jan-13 17:14:54

It is a pizza folded in half, I don't get it really I was only the pick up driver. Seems they are allowed it now, and I've been armed with tinfoil and Tupperware wink
