Pizza Express serves up pizza and politics

A new General Election pizza menu has been added to the range on offer at Pizza Express where customers can vote, unofficially of course, with what they eat by choosing a pizza made to represent their chosen political party.

Food artist Prudence Staite is the mastermind behind the new political pizzas which all feature toppings that reflect the values and image of each party.

If your vote is with Labour, then the Gordon Brown pizza is the one you’ll be served up which comes topped with fiery chilli and ground beef. The pizza made especially to represent the Conservatives and their leader David Cameron is somewhat more mild and offers a vegetarian option of cheese and rocket.

For those who are backing the Liberal Democrats and their leader Nick Clegg in the poles later this month, you may be interested in sampling the Pizza Express homage to the Lib Dems which comes in the form of a pizza topped with fresh tomatoes and spicy sausage.

As well as the political leaders, the voters have also had a pizza made in their name. The People’s Pizza reflects the wider issues affecting British citizens and features toppings such as caviar, which represents the class debate, and also dough balls due to the county’s economic crisis and current lack of, um, dough.
