“ Type: Other Ready Meals „
I brought a 10 inch pizza from the pizza chiller in Asda the other day, it wasn't one of them that you choose the toppings yourself but it was already made and because I haven't had a Meat Feast pizza in such a long time I had to have this. It's a deep pan pizza and is quite thick, it only needs to be cooked for about 15 mins and I'm surprised that was enough time because of how fat the base is. When the pizza is cooked it looks and smells wicked. There didn't look like there was going to be much cheese on it but when it melts it spreads all over the pizza and looks like one of them pizzas you can ask for in Pizza Hut that comes with half the cheese. That's ok for me but if you like loads of cheese then there might not be enough for you. The meat on it is pepperoni, spicy beef, some smaller slices of pepperoni (or it might have been another sausage but I can't check because the wrapper went off with the dustmen this morning! lol) and ham. I'm not mad keen on ham on pizza but this one is nice, it's quite bland tasting but has gone a bit meatier than it looks when it was cooking. The pepperoni is yummy and so is the beef, the beef isn't madly spicy and I was glad about that because sometimes I have to take that off meat feast pizzas because it's too hot. The base is lovely and fluffy inside and tasted wicked. It's got a very light doughy taste and the thick tomato sauce makes it even better because of how it moistens it. I paid about £2.00 for this pizza I think and that's a good price because it tastes so fresh and was yummy to eat. I will deffo get one again next time we go to Asda and will try some of the other varieties too.
A few years ago, I used to workon the Deli counter at asda, and part of my job was making the pizzas up . It was quite fun, although it used to get hectic on a saturday night , and I'd toddle off home all exhausted, and after making pizzas for other people all day, I'd want myself . Meat Feast was usually the variety I would choose . The Pizzas come packaged on a carboard disk, wrapped over with clear plastic film ( if you've had yours made up for you, be careful as the clear film can sometimes be hot on the base due to the type of heat sealing machine used . It'll have stickers on it listing the ingredients, the price, etc, and the instrucyions are on the reverse of the sticker, so rememebr to keep the clear film for the instructions . This is a quite awesome pizza in my opinion and one I purchase regularly. The pizza comes on a cardboard tray with completely clear front packaging so you can see the pizza clearly. This is good because sometimes if not packed tightly enough you can find that the toppings have started to slide of the pizza so check this has not happened before buying. Meat Feast comes topped with ham, spicy beef, and pepperoni, as well as the tomato sauce and cheese . The weight of these is 440g, although with them being handmade the weights do vary - you'll often find if you order it to be made at a busy time, you end up with more cheese topping, as staff try to hurry the queue along and don't stop to weigh each, simply putting a little extra cheese on to make up the weight . They take 10-12 minutes to cook ( bear in mind, if you've ordered yours on a different base, cooking times may vary ) and are very tasty - generous sauce and stretchy cheese, a little chilli kick to the beef and a mild spiciness to the pepperoni . Its not mouth wateringly spicy though , so older children would eat it happily . If you like it a little spicier though, you can always ask the deli assistant to put a little drizzle of chilli oil over it ^^ They are bit of a guilty pleasure though , as half a pizza contains over 600 calories, and 21 g of fat, which is a whopping amount, especially if you've an appetite like mine and could easily eat the whole thing . They cost £2.38 each, and you'll find that Asda often have these on offer at 2 for £5, so you can buy one and freeze one . One thing I have noticed though is that larger and busier asda stores now buy in some of these pre-made - which means they adhere strictly to the weight - if you can, get one made up for you, as you'll often end up with a more generously topped pizza . And don't forget that most CYO Pizza deli counters now offer you the option of having up to six toppings for a little extra . Overall, a great fresh pizza with tasty toppings in generous amounts at a good price ! Well worth buying!
I love the Deli Deep pan pizza as you get to choose the toppings. The first thing you get asked is what size pizza you want and what type of base , we usually go for the 10 inch and deep pan size. The deli assistant then covers the base with either tomato or bbq sauce and then a coating of cheese. You then get to choose your toppings , there is a wide range of choice my favourites are hickory beef , cajun chicken , bacon and mushrooms . If you have opted for the bbq sauce it gets counted as one of your toppings. Once your toppings have been added they add more cheese to the pizza and you can have a drizzle of oil as well if you wish. The deli assistant then puts a clear film over the top be careful as the edges will be hot. When you are ready to eat your pizza just take the the plastic cover off and remove the cardboard and place directly in the oven and follow the cooking instructions on the label. A 10" pizza currently costs £2.38 which is very good value and it tastes much nicer than the frozen pizza`s.
Asda Deep Pan 10" Pizza - Meat Feast (440g) This is a quite awesome pizza in my opinion and one I purchase regularly. The pizza comes on a cardboard tray with completely clear front packaging so you can see the pizza clearly. This is good because sometimes if not packed tightly enough you can find that the toppings have started to slide of the pizza so check this has not happened before buying. You can choose a create your own pizza with any selection of toppings from Asda but if you like meat then you cant go far wrong with this one and it saves you queuing in usually very long lines waiting to order. These meat feast pizzas have ham, beef, pepperoni and of course cheese for toppings and they are delicious. The pepperoni is spicy but not too hot as to take away the rest of the flavours the pizza has to offer. These pizzas can be frozen on the day of purchase which means obviously that you can keep them at home till required although I tend to eat on day of purchase. They take only 10- 12 minutes to cook from fridge or 12 - 14 minutes from frozen so they are also a quick meal to make. The one warning on them would be that they are very fattening with only half of one of these pizzas containing more than 600 calories and over 21G of fat. I eat one of these to myself so I better start jogging I think. They smell lovely, they taste fantastic, they only cost £2.38 which is much cheaper than having one delivered from your local pizza parlour and they are incredibly quick to cook so why not give them a try!!
