“ Brand: Asda / Type: Pizza „
Of late me and my mate that I've been staying with have been really very busy indeed. Though we both adore cooking, time is sometimes of the essence! Take the other day we were up all night and then started a car-boot at 6am after traveling there taking us an hour, got snowed on badly so had to pack up and then we had to go food shopping half dead and absolutely freezing cold like never before!
So we decided to pick up something we could simply bung in the oven with some oven chips! We both like pizza and with her being Vegetarian we had limited options but spotted this at £$1.00 and decided it sounded rather nice!
Dark green box and on it there is a photograph of the pizza. I am told that it is Asda 'Improved Recipe' Vegetable Pizza 'An authentic Italian stonebaked thin and crispy pizza base topped with a rich tomato sauce, creamy mozzarella, sweet red and yellow peppers, spinach, onion and cheddar' and that it contains no artificial colours, flavours or hydrogenated fat, that it is suitable for Vegetarians and there is an at glance nutritional chart on there. On the back of the box other information given includes ingredients and allergy advice, a full nutritional chart is stated, cooking instructions are given as are contact details for Asda being stated. Nice enough, informative box this is and inside the box the pizza is sealed within a clear plastic wrapper.
Take it out the outer box and wrapper and you have a rather large thin pizza covered in toppings. Best cooked from frozen you simply pop it on a baking tray and in preheated oven for about 12-14 minutes and that is that job done.
When you take it out of the oven after the stated time it is lovely and golden, the cheddar although there isn't what you'd describe as loads of it is melted and the vegetables appear cooked and the pizza gives a nice aroma off too.
Taste wise this is a really nice, fresh tasting pizza. The base is thin and light and does go slightly crispy. It is wheaty and the tomato sauce topping and cheese isn't too soggy for it and it all holds together very well.
The onions (red and white), peppers (red and yellow) and spinach are all seasoned well and retain a slight crunchiness to them and are well seasoned. The whole pizza has a slight garlic overtone to it along with a taste of herbs such as oregano giving it an Italian feel!
At the moment this along with a few other Asda's own branded pizzas are on offer at 4 for £3.00 (usual price is £1.00 a pizza of course) and me and my mate feel that they offer really good value. Not only is the price absolutely brilliant, it looks great and tastes it! Nice base, nice, tangy tomato sauce with a slight peppery feel and lots of well cooked, tasty veggies on top of tangy cheese it's simply marvelous and highly recommended from us!
