Advantages: cheaper than takeaway
Disadvantages: none at the moment
I love pizza.
At the moment though I feel let down by the shop pre packed ones and the takeaway ones are getting a little bit too expensive.
The pre packed ones seem to be using cheaper ingredients or something because they either taste bland or the base is like cardboard.
So last week I tried the create your own at asda. (I haven't had them for at least a year)
I had to fill an order form in ticking what size and crust I wanted and then tick which toppings I wanted on each pizza.
You can choose between a 10 inch and a 14 inch.
The bases are thin and crispy, stone baked, deep pan and stuffed crust (10 inch only).
A 10 inch with up to 4 toppings cost £2.50. The stuffed crust is more expensive (£3.20 I think) and up to 6 toppings is £3.50.
The 14 inch one is £3.50 for up to 4 toppings and I am not sure how much for 6 toppings but obviously it will be more than £3.50.
Some of the toppings you can choose from (from memory) are mushrooms, pepperoni, sweetcorn, peppers, jalapeno's, chilli cheese, onions, pineapple. some sort of chicken and beef.
You can also choose if you want the barbeque sauce rather than a traditional tomato one. You can then choose if you want a chilli oil or garlic oil drizzled on top of the finished pizza.
In the pastmy husband has had the chilli oil and wasn't impressed.
We ordered a 10 inch for hubby with jalapenos, peppers and chilli cheese and for the rest of us a 14 inch with just extra cheese. Both a thin base with the normal sauce.
When we got them home my hubby chopped some chillies to go on his as well as asda don't have them to choose from.
When they prepared the 10 inch they put a load of cheese on then let it fall off and leave just a bit on before adding the other ingredients. This is fine because my husband has chilli cheese on as well but it wouldn't be so great if he didn't and I would have to ask for a sprinkling of cheese on top.
The 14 inch that was just extra cheese was just the tomato sauce and lots of grated cheese.
The 14 inch just about fitted in my oven and it was so cheesey that quite a bit of cheese dripped down. So it is good to keep an eye on it and as it starts to drip just push it back on the pizza with a knife.
They took about 18 minutes to cook and were quite crispy which I like, I warmed the plates slightly before getting the pizzas out of the oven and they stayed crispy until eaten which is always good for me. (I don't like it whne crusts go soft).
These pizzas are worth buying at the moment
Summary: good tasting pizza
