Asda Create your Own Pizza
Advantages: Fresh, plenty of topping, lots of choice & price!
Disadvantages: None. What more could you ask for?
Pizza is one of those foods that just hits the spot on a Saturday night in front of the telly. It's quick and convenient and you can have it in so many different flavours! For a number of years now I have been a regular buyer of Asda's create your own pizza's which are made freshly to your order or you can choose one of the ones that have already been made if you prefer not to wait for something specific.
~Price & Availability ~
As far as I know asda is the only supermarket which does this kind of pizza counter where you get your own personalized pizza. You can choose from a variety of pre-made pizzas such as vegetable supreme, meat feast, spicy veggie, pepperoni, Hawaiian, four cheese and many more. But you can also just tell the person at the counter what base, size and toppings you would like and they will make one right there for you just how you like it, so it's great if you have some fussy eaters! There are several different topping choices including various vegetables, meats, cheeses and spices. The pizzas come in three sizes and you can choose from thin and crispy, stone baked and deep pan bases. A 10 inch pizza with any base costs only £2.50 and a 14inch £3.50, which compared with a takeaway is a bargain! Asda currently have an offer on of two 10 inch pizzas for £4.00!
~ Packaging ~
The pizzas come wrapped in a tight plastic wrap for freshness and are kept sturdy on a round piece of cardboard which is great if you're having to transport it home in your car! On the front of the wrapper is a circle sticker indicating which topping you have chosen for your pizza and on the back of this sticker you will find the cooking instructions. There is no allergy or nutritional information because this is baked on the site.
~ Cooking ~
To cook, simply unwrap your pizza and take it off the cardboard and transfer it onto a tray. Then set your oven to 180 degrees and bake for around 10-12 minutes depending on your oven! I usually leave mine in for about 12 minutes because I like the edges to be slightly crisp. During cooking you can smell all the gorgeous toppings cooking and see them bubbling away.
~ Appearance, taste, texture & smell ~
Taking the pizza out of the oven you will notice all of the lovely colourful toppings! They all look very fresh and inviting. The dough is perfect, not too tough and dry and definitely not soggy. It has a nice bite to it when you sink your teeth in. The tomato base is very nice and tangy without being overpowering and the cheese is very creamy and plentiful. Coming to think of it, all of the ingredients are in very generous amounts for the price you pay! There are a good couple of handfuls of each topping. All of the toppings taste extremely fresh, especially the vegetables they are still very juicy and crunchy. All of the flavours compliment each other very well whatever topping you choose, the ratio of base to tomato to cheese to topping is spot on! The pizza smells very tomatoey and cheesy and if you have spices or meat on it that aroma fills the room too! One thing I love is that the pizza is not at all greasy or oily like a takeaway pizza!
~ Over all opinion ~
Asda's pizzas are so much tastier and cheaper than takeaway pizzas! Why fork out all of that money when you can sit in the comfort of your own lounge and enjoy something ten times more tasty? I would certainly recommend asda's create your own pizza counter and would strongly suggest to try it before ordering a takeaway to save yourself a bit of money and have a tastier meal! Its especially good if you have special dietary needs or don't like certain things on a pizza as you can amend it to how you would like!
I am going to give Asda's create your own pizza counter 5/5 stars! I could not possibly give it anything less and I will continue to visit this counter for an Italian treat!
Summary: Delicious pizza in the comfort of your own home!
