Chicago Town Takeaway Personal Pepperoni Pizza
Advantages: Delicious, great amount of topping
Disadvantages: Bit expensive compared to other frozen pizzas (but worth it)
==Chicago town takeaway pizza - Pepperoni==
==Reason for purchase==
Me and my husband both love pizza and pasta and although we have pasta a lot during the week, we perhaps have pizza once a fortnight, this is only because my husband has to eat a lot of healthy food to maintain his fitness at work, so we therefore class it as a treat. The local take aways to us do not deliver directly to our door, so when we seen these pizzas in our local supermarket I was willing to give them a go. We have had many of the other Chicago town pizzas before but we have never tried this specific type. The only type in this product range that we are able to purchase is the pepperoni one. There are others such as Cheese and Tomato, New Yorker (ham, bacon, pepperoni and mushroom), Sloppy Joe (spicy beef, green peppers and red onion), Cheese, Chicken and Bacon Melt (chicken, bacon, mozzarella and cheddar). If I was able to get hold of the other pizzas I would definitely try the Sloppy Joe, New Yorker and Chicken and Bacon melt as they all sound delicious. Some of the pizzas in the range come with stuffed crust these are; New Yorker, Pepperoni, Sloppy Joe and Cheese. The other pizzas have traditional crust which is just plain crusts without a filling. The fillings of the crust are all the same it is a rich tomato sauce which nicely fills the crust the whole way round the pizza.
This products packaging covers similar bases as the rest of the Chicago town pizzas and it is easy to distinguish in the freezer aisle at your chosen supermarket. The packaging reflects the size of the pizza brilliantly, there is no shock when you open up the box and get a pizza half the box's size. The company's logo is on the front alongside a picture of a slice of the pizza, this picture is accurate in comparison to some advertising used by other companies, and it shows the filling in the crust as well. On the rear of the box you can find the usual useful information such as: cooking time, ingredients, product description and how to contact the company should you wish too. The pizza itself comes in a protective plastic layer which is easy to open and does not require a knife or scissors to gain entry to the lovely pizza. An excellent addition to the packaging is that the pizza comes on a disposable oven pan that goes straight into the oven. Not only does this minimise washing and keeps your oven clean, it is also recyclable too. The pizza comes with a great amount of cheese and pepperoni, sometimes you may have to rearrange the pepperoni to get even coverage but this is more than likely because it hasn't remain upright all of the time.
==The pizza itself==
The pizza is not precooked and the company proudly boost that it is quickly frozen as soon as it's constructed to allow for the freshest pizza once it's cooked. The pizza is a thin base but still has a nice amount of doughy goodness. Like I previously mentioned there is a good amount of topping and crust filling on the pizza. Once cooked the pizza looks, smells and more importantly tastes delicious. The pepperoni is of good quality alongside the reasonably stringy cheese topping. The tomato crust filling is thick, smooth and incredibly rich. The pizza would easily fill one man or someone with a good appetite or me and my husband will have two slices each and if we are particularly hungry we normally have a side of either fries or onion rings to make a proper meal for two. I personally am full after having the 2 slices as my stomach has somewhat shrunk after having my lovely little boy squish it for more a less my entire pregnancy. I look forward to the days where I can finish off a full pizza on my own even though my body won't thank me for it on the scales!
==Would I purchase this pizza again?==
Definatley, and if the opportunity to try the other flavours pops up I might have to treat us both to them as well. It's an easy meal ideal for the weekend as it takes between 18-30minutes to cook depending on your cooker type and tastes as though it has been freshly made. Yes, it may cost more than your normal frozen pizza but to get a great tasting pizza I think it's well worth the price difference.
