PizzaExpress is teaming up with Ice Age: Collision Course this summer to provide great family days out. So, we’ve been asked by PizzaExpress to find out what MNers’ and their families’ dream pizzas would be.

Here’s what PizzaExpress have to say: ‘When it comes to PizzaExpress ingredients, we never compromise. After all, they’re the foundation for our great flavours. The same goes for our commitment to bringing fresh ideas to the table – such as our exciting new take on the Hawaiian Pizza.’

‘Inspired by Peter, our founder’s entrepreneurship and bravery to try new things, we’re always looking for new ways to delight our customers. How do we do that? By listening to them, of course, and bringing their ideas to life with a little creativity.’

So how would you customise your dream pizza? Are you a classic Margherita person or do you have more adventurous tastes? Where do you stand with pineapple on pizza? Are you the kind of person who likes lots of different toppings on one pizza, or do you prefer to keep things simple?

Whatever your favourite recipes are, post below about your dream pizza and you will be entered into a prize draw where one MNer will win a £300 Love2Shop voucher.

Thanks and good luck!

Okay mine is pretty standard and shouldn't be too much to ask for

classic marguerite topped with green peppers and mushroom!

However when feeling adventurous then spinach and a nice runny egg!

CMOTDibbler Mon 04-Jul-16 11:17:59

Gluten free base (bendy, not too dry), tomato sauce, rocket, pine nuts, caramelised onion, rocket, mozzarella and a sprinkle of parmesan

Ooh, this is actually a hard question to answer, as I live pizza quite a lot.

A thin base, but not too thin so that it goes hard and crispy. Tomato sauce, lots of mozzarella, and some other exciting cheeses that are definitely vegetarian. I like goats cheese, but it does get very samey.
Then, spinach, but wrung out well, and an egg. And hot chilli peppers, chopped finely, and pine nuts. And finished with basil.

My favourite is a margherita with feta, olives and red onions. Always add black pepper as soon as it's out of the oven!

SmileAndNod Mon 04-Jul-16 11:29:40

I'd like a thin (but not too thin) base, with tomato sauce, mozzarella, goat's cheese, caramelized red onions and roasted red and yellow peppers.

grumpmitchell Mon 04-Jul-16 12:13:39

A thin base but not so thin that it goes all floppy and soggy when you pick it up.

Caramelised onions, sundried tomatoes, pine nuts and mozzarella.

My mouths watering now!

Gluten free Base. Tomato & garlic sauce. Spicy beef, mozzarella balls, red onions, roasted mixed peppers, jalapeños, mushrooms & roasted cherry tomatoes. Topped with fresh rocket & herbs.

Scribblegirl Mon 04-Jul-16 12:18:53

My favourite is the Four Seasons. No idea why you ditched it from your menu!!!sad

Thankfully whenever I've been in and asked nicely, they've made one up for me grin

SmallBee Mon 04-Jul-16 12:22:17

Oooo my favourite game!

Base must be thin and crispy, with tomato sauce and the usual mix of cheese. Then add some panchetta, red onions, leeks, olives and or capers and a bit of lovely Stilton or other blue cheese.

UpOnDown Mon 04-Jul-16 12:59:19

A thin and crispy base, with capers, anchovies, olives and proscuttio!

MERLYPUSSEDOFF Mon 04-Jul-16 13:09:59

Mushrooms, serrano ham (lots), green olives, chilli, pepperoni, sweet red peppers, parmesan, anchovies and capers. All on a crispy base.

idontlikealdi Mon 04-Jul-16 13:12:14

Mushrooms, red onion, chorizo, chilli and plenty of mozarella but the grated typw not the ball.

Cheerybigbottom Mon 04-Jul-16 13:12:56

All the cheeses, fajita chicken, sweet corn and tub of soured cream on the side grin

TrollTheRespawnJeremy Mon 04-Jul-16 13:13:10

I'd like a teriyaki chicken pizza please with spring onions on top.

CrotchetQuaverMinim Mon 04-Jul-16 13:14:35

lots of mozzarella, mushrooms, and weirdly, raisins! I quite like odd mixes of sweet and savory.

or roasted garlic, that would be good too.

Lilaclily Mon 04-Jul-16 13:15:05

Loads of cheese, pineapple, ham, olives, red onion

Don't like stuffed crusts: too filling

HallowedMimic Mon 04-Jul-16 13:17:39

Bolognese sauce, with mushrooms and peppers, and parmesan.

I'd also like a cheese free one, with roast vegetables and falafel.

OhHolyFuck Mon 04-Jul-16 13:19:25

Prawns and olives definitely
Or tuna, generally seafood and I'm happy

BathshebaDarkstone Mon 04-Jul-16 13:19:43

Either all the ingredients of kedgeree apart from the rice, or steak and kidneys.

dottyaboutstripes Mon 04-Jul-16 13:24:08

Thin base! I'm a veg lover when it comes to pizza - peppers, red onion, rocket and olives. None of this pineapple malarkey for me!

ShatnersBassoon Mon 04-Jul-16 13:24:49

Lots of vegetables (but none of the soggy ones like courgette or aubergine), olives and jalapeños. Parmesan grated over after cooking.

PlymouthMaid1 Mon 04-Jul-16 13:28:50

Sliced mushrooms, shredded leeks, artichokes, stilton, mozzarella and red chili flakes ideally on a thin-crust spelt base.

fish88 Mon 04-Jul-16 13:31:30

I don't do vegetables on pizza so my dream pizza is mozzarella and lots of Italian meats; salami, chorizo, prosciutto, etc.

Fairylea Mon 04-Jul-16 13:32:43

I would love mushrooms, black olives and possibly some chargrilled aubergine. grin
