“ Brand: Asda / Type: Pizza „
When it comes to pizza me and my mate love them stuff her being Vegetarian means we have rather limited options available to us! However we saw this pizza at a pound a box and being of decent size thought we'd purchase it for a quick tea one night as we're always so busy!
Not as on the review photograph (naughty Dooyoo lol!). The one I'm reviewing is the thin base and not as shown (I will let Dooyoo know this lol). So the box our pizza came in is a dark green box with a picture of a pizza on the front of it. I am told that it is Asda Four Cheese Pizza 'An authentic Italian stonebaked pizza base topped with a rich tomato sauce, cheddar, creamy mozzarella, Edam, and Emmental cheeses' and that it is stonebaked in Italy and that it contains no artificial colours, flavours or hydrogenated fat and there is an at a glance nutritional chart on there. Other information on the box includes ingredients and allergy advice, a full nutritional chart as well as being given instructions on how to cook it are listed, storage advice is given, the weight is stated (which is 400g in case your interested lol) and contact details for Asda are given. Inside the pizza is within a see-through plastic wrapper and of course it needs to be taken out of that and cooked from frozen (for best results).
All you do with this is put it in a preheated oven for about 12-14 minutes and that's it job done! It goes in looking thin and frozen and not much cheese on it (which is grated) however comes out with a lightly golden more crisped up base and about three different coloured cheeses all melt together but don't fully cover the pizza.
The base is thin, as I have already said, slightly crispy but still easy to deal with and doesn't flop and/or fall about on you. Well seasoned as well and over that there is a rich and tangy tomato sauce though not so much of it that it makes the base go soggy or anything like that. The cheeses consist of red and white cheddar, hard cheese, Edam, Mozzarella and Emmental and some parts of the cheese topping are richer and more tangy and then other bits of the topping is smoother and lighter in appearance and taste. Not too greasy (I don't appreciate a greasy looking film over the cheese) this is really nice. Nicely seasoned all over with a real Italian feel to it with a mix of garlic, Oregano and a few other herbs this is nice enough and certainly looks pleasant enough however I would prefer a little more cheese on there but overall it is a very tasty pizza for it's price and doesn't possess an economy feel and of course if you so desire you can get creative and add your own toppings!
