The Best Pizza in Gurgaon - Pizza Express!

Finally! We have a place other than Chilli's that we can all agree on! Don't get me wrong, Chilli's. We all still love you, but even you will understand - how much tex mex can one family eat? And yes, you have crayons and coloring sheets for the kids, and your kiddie meals with chocolate milk are much appreciated, but every once in a while, pizza beckons.

And when the craving for pizza hits, wow, does Pizza Express at Ambience Mall, Gurgaon have the answer! They have such an amazing range of pizzas (I've only looked at their vegetarian options) and such yummy starters (you must, must try this stuffed red pepper with mushrooms and goat's cheese) and also a very decently put together kids' meal.

Time for an anecdote: I've been keen to introduce different world cuisines to the kids so that their world view is expanded, they have exposure to different cultures through food and literature, and all that good stuff. So, last weekend, when we were at Pizza Express, I asked them if they knew what kind of food pizza was. "Junk Food!!" was the immediate, chorused response. I realized that's what we all think because of Dominos and Pizza Hut and all the other crappy pizzas out there. But for once, because we were eating what felt like genuine food, I was able to tell them that it's not junk - it's Italian food!

Great, super quick service, great food, a friendly ambience, and prices that are not cheap, but don't seem totally crazy either (between 2200-2700 for a satisfying meal for 4) makes this a definite weekend choice.

What's your favorite place for pizza? Let me know!
