It’ll come as no surprise that we love pizza. That is what we at Peter are all about; it’s who we are, it’s something we feel very passionate about and well, it’s quite obvious really. I mean our pizzas are true Italian, full of flavour and topped with deliciousness, so what’s not to love? But yes, we know pizza, but we also know not everyone wants a pizza all the time.


At lunch when you’re popping out for a bite to eat with a work colleague, or having a catch up with a friend, sometimes you might not want a huge pizza. With this in mind we have decided to give you another lunchtime option, introducing the Peter panini. It’s the perfect partner at lunch, created by our Italian chefs who have combined the perfect mouth-watering flavours.

We may appear biased about it but we actually tested it before the launch. We invited local lifestyle bloggers, to come in and join us for lunch whilst trying out all the flavours of our potential paninis. If anyone is going to give you, to the point feedback it’s a blogger! The outcome? We got big thumbs up from them and now we’ve finally launched it in both our Loughborough and Leicester sites.

Introducing the Peter Panini Menu

We like a good theme; we never do anything by halves so it’ll come as no surprise that our panini names have a story behind them.

SAN SIRO – Mozzarella, pesto, artichoke, rocket, cherry tomatoes

It’s named after the home of Milan football team and it seemed only right to name a panini after one of our biggest personal passions.

PANSA PER ME – Salami with fennel, smoked mozzarella, rocket.

Our grandad once had a clever dog called, think of me. The intelligent canine would protect him from the authorities, at a time when people smuggled in tobacco for cigarettes. Such a loyal companion grandad would simply shout, ‘think of me!’ and the dog would chase off any unwelcome visitors.

CARNA MANCA – Peppers, courgettes, mushrooms, rocket.

This one is pretty straight forward; it basically means the meat is missing. You guessed it! It’s our veggie option on our new menu.

GORROMAH – Sausage, cooked sauce, mozzarella

This is representative of the film starring Robert Saviano, whose story unravels in Naples with his organised crime activity. Now, we’re not condoning crime in anyway but this is a big part of our Italian history – plus what Italian gangster film have you ever watched that didn’t have meatballs or sausage in sauce as a food choice?!

GORGONZOLA HIGUIAIN – Gorgonzola, Parma ham, rocket

Another cheeky football reference with one of our favourite football stars, Gonzalo Higuian.

SUPER MORTADELLA BROS – Mortadella, mozzarella, peppers, rocket.

Last but not least we couldn’t have a panini without mentioning Mario and Luigi, who together are the Mario Bros! One of favourite games to be played on the legendary Nintendo Snes, it’s now a major gaming classic and a firm favourite with us.


What do you think? Sounding tasty? Fancy some lunch? There is certainly something for everyone. We accept lunchtime walks in so if you’re feeling spontaneous today, why not come in and see us for a Peter panini.
