Pizza Express and Ice Age Collide this Summer

PizzaExpress is celebrating the arrival of the new film Ice Age Collision Course this month (12th July), by inviting Sid and his Ice Age friends to take over the Piccolo menu.

Little pizza-lovers visiting PizzaExpress from this week will find a fun-packed Ice Age Collision Course activity sheet included with their Piccolo menu, featuring lots of puzzles and games – the perfect way to keep little hands busy while the grow-ups relax. There’s also the chance to win a trip to Hollywood by creating a picture of your favourite Ice Age character with their favourite PizzaExpress pizza.

Ice Age

The new Ice Age Collision film sees Scrat’s epic pursuit of the elusive acorn catapult him into the universe where he accidentally sets off a series of cosmic events that transform and threaten the Ice Age World. To save themselves, Sid, Manny, Diego, and the rest of the herd must leave their home and embark on a quest full of comedy and adventure, travelling to exotic new lands and encountering a host of colourful new characters.

Pop into PizzaExpress before or after seeing the movie and kids can enjoy three courses for £6.95, which includes Dough Balls served with bright and crunchy vegetables, pizza or pasta, a delicious dessert and a Bambinoccino.


Just like the grown-ups, kids can choose from several pizzas – American, La Reine, Pollo and Margherita – or they can create their own. If they prefer a pasta option, there’s Bolognese, Bianca or Napoletana. For dessert they can choose between a Piccolo Sundae, made with ice-cream or fat free sorbet, or a Chocolate Brownie topped with fresh strawberry.
