“ Brand: Chicago Town / Type: Frozen Food „
When it comes to pizza I love the stuff! I like a large pizza and plenty of toppings all for myself when I'm in a greedy mood! I spotted this one a while ago in Asda costing for £1.00 (on offer) and decided to give it a go!
The packaging of this is rather informative and not at all bad looking and gives off the impression your getting a quality product. The pizza comes wrapped in see-through plastic and within a smart black box with a photograph of the pizza on the front of it and we are told that it is Chicago Town, Edge To Edge 'Deep Pan' Miami Meaty Pizza 'Mozzarella, pepperoni, red onions & spicy sausage' and that 'Size matters, its bigger, its better' and that it has more toppings on it than any other pizza. Fact*' and that it weights 430g. On the back of the box other information stated includes being told a bit about the pizza, ingredients and allergy advice is given as is a full nutritional chart and cooking instructions and contact details for Dr.Oetker (the manufacturer of the product) is given too.
The Pizza Itself:
Best cooked from frozen in a conventional oven this takes 18-20 minutes to cook through and I found mine to cook beautifully in that time. As soon as I popped into the oven I was impressed by the large round size of it and that yes it did seem to have much more toppings on it than any other frozen pizza I have cooked or/and eaten myself in the past and on the back of the box we are told that product tests proved this fact to be true.
So what you get is a reasonably thick pan styled bread based, crispy/crunchy pizza. The bread tastes as crunchy bread really does although not too crunchy either which I really don't apreciate a usually opt for a thin base for that reason. Over that you get a generous helping of tomato puree which really does go to the edge of the pizza, keeping it moist and not one bit boring and dried up looking. Over that you get plenty of grated mozzarella cheese which goes golden brown and moist and creamy opposed to greasy and/or too heavy and then over that thin, small slices or pepperoni which give off a tasty and slightly garlic smell and taste, slithers of well cooked red onions and tiny bits of what apppears to be spicy sausage which I did think was some sort of spicy mince till I read the ingredient list given on the back of the box for the purpose of this review.
I found this pizza easy to cook and simply really, really tasty. In appearance it looked take away bought in my opinion and although I can't say it was as nice as my favourite one from Dominos I can say that I loved it all the same and it was the nicest ever frozen pizza I have ever had. Generous with toppings and tasty I think these are great and I can't wait to try out other varieties of pizzas from this range...no matter the cost of them as these are exceptional quality!
