Asda Create your Own Pizza
Advantages: taste great and good value
For a long time we used to order takeaway pizza on a Friday night. It was the perfect end to the week, no cooking along with tasty food.
Then the cost started to creep up and the pizzas themselves seemed to come along with a layer of grease.
The two things combined put me off buying, and next time I was Adsa I decided to buy one of their create your own pizzas, and have never ordered from our local pizza takeaway since.
You can get the create your own in a variety of sizes (10 and 12 inch ) and base types ( thin crust, stuffed crust -- this will cost extra, and stone baked ) and while our local shop has a selection of pre-made pizzas displayed in front of the pizza counter, in my opinion it's worth waiting to create the exact one that you want.
After selecting your base and size you'll be asked if you want a tomato or bbq sauce base. We always get tomato and once that sauce is spread on the base it's covered by a layer of grated cheese. Then it's time to pick toppings. We usually get the four topping 12 inch pizza which costs £3.50.
A while back Asda introduced a variety of new toppings such as hot dogs etc, but I guess they didn't sell well as they've gone back to a smaller selection. Off the top of my head they have chicken, spicy chicken, pepperoni, chilli beef, jalepenos, tomato, spicy cheese, cheese mozzarella discs, sweetcorn, mushroom, red onion.
It's also possible to get a half and half pizza. For example, my son isn't keen on chicken so our usual order is a 12 inch with spicy chicken on one half, pepperoni on the other, and then the whole thing covered in mozzarella discs and red onion.
Finally, after topping are added more cheese will be sprinkled on top then if wanted, either a garlic or chilli oil as a final touch.
An extra here. Right now our local Asda has a deal where you can get a 12 inch four topping pizza and a 1.5l bottle of coke/diet coke for £4. Or, if you want a 10 inch you can get two of that size for £4. Not bad deals in my opinion.
The pizzas themselves cook well. On occasions we've had ones that were slightly greasy but I suspect that's due to the addition of too much oil.
I can't fault these pizzas. They're good value for money, taste great and really, you can't get better than that.
Summary: A tasty pizza at a good price.
