If it does then check the 'use previews' checkbox in the export window when exporting. This may provide an 'unpixelated' export.

Or:

Under file menu > Project Settings > Video Rendering and Playback > Renderer

change the Renderer in the pull down menu to 'Mercury Playback Engine Software Only'

See if this solves your pixelisation problem ... 

If it does - this may indicate an issue with your graphics card (incompatible with Premiere Pro) or perhaps you are using the wrong video card driver. 

More specifications on your workstation may help in solving the issue i.e. premiere pro version, hardware specs, graphics card and driver version.

... and a frame grab or short video clip showing the pixlisation you are seeing might help too.
