Dr Oetker Ristorante Pizza Speciale
Advantages: Tasty, Well Priced, Great Toppings
Disadvantages: Nutritional Values!
I am a huge fan of pizza, particularly meaty ones, and I am constantly purchasing them from takeaways. I have started to find that this is quite an expensive option, so I am trying out various oven cook pizzas to see if I can find any yummy ones to help save a few pounds. When I was in my local Sainsbury's the other day, I noticed this Ristorante pizza on offer. These are normally a little over £2.00, but I managed to get this at around the £1.30 mark so I was happy to try it out.
This particular one is called Pizza Speciale, and this is because of it's tasty toppings. As I said I am often a huge fan of my meat feast pizzas, and the toppings of this one are salami and ham, and it also includes mozzarella cheese, herbs and mushrooms. I am not all that big a fan of mushrooms, but they were easy enough to pick off so I was not complaining! The other toppings however seemed perfect for me so I thought I would try it out.
When you open the box, you get a decent sized pizza in a plastic wrapping. You just need to open this up and pop it in to the oven. It is a thin based pizza which made it taste all the little more luxurious as if it was one out of a restaurant! It oven cooks between ten and twelve minutes, and I have to admit that this pizza is pretty tasty when cooked to the right timing.
There is a nice amount of cheese on it, as I hate when there is loads and loads of cheese on pizzas as I feel it can ruin the flavour. This pizza tastes lovely, and is not too heavy, therefore you can accompany it with maybe a salad, some garlic bread or chips dependent on your tastebuds. The slices of salami are huge which makes it all the better, and the ham also has lots of flavour to it. The herbs on the top give the pizza a little something extra than your bog standard supermarket branded pizzas, and as far as taste is concerned, I really feel that this pizza deserves five stars!
So I had found myself a little bargain, which also turned out to be a tasty bargain. Surely the only thing that could then damage it was the nutritional information? The following nutritional information is for half of a pizza, and what I would recommend as a serving size for an adult.
Okay, so it turns out that this pizza is a little bit unhealthy, especially considering the average daily nutritional values we should be getting! But this is expected with pizza, and it should only be eaten as a treat, therefore I would say it is entirely worth it if you just fancy throwing something quick and easy in the oven which still tastes delicious, just try to avoid having it all of the time!
Overall, a lovely, reasonably priced pizza available from supermarkets which is the same quality of those you can find in restaurants, just watch out for the calories! Four stars, well recommended and thank you for reading.
Summary: Lovely pizza.
