Pizza Express in Clacton on Sea
2-4 Marine Parade West, Clacton on Sea, Essex; t (01255) 423248
Nice venue facing the sea; really helpful staff; when I went, I had a very nice pizza on a Romana base with melted vegan ‘mozzarella’ slices (I took the slices with me and the chef added them to the pizza half-way through the cooking time.) Crostini without cheese is a nice starter.
