Goodfellas Deep Pan Pizza
Advantages: Nice chicken!
Disadvantages: Boring pizza with an economy taste
When it comes to pizza, although I know that they're not good for my hips I do occasionally like to indulge myself with one which is why the other day when I spotted this Goodfella's spicy chicken deep pan pizza on offer in Asda for a £1.00 I couldn't resist treating myself!
Square box with a picture of the pizza on the front and I am told that it is Goodfella's deep Spicy Chicken 'Panbaked base topped with our signature tomato sauce, fine mozzarella, Cajun chicken, red peppers & pan fried onions...Bellissimo!' and there is an at a glance nutritional chart displayed along with little pictures of chefs on there. On the back of the box other information listed includes being told a bit about the product, ingredients and allergy advice is given, I'm told how to cook the pizza and nutritional information, storage details and the size is stated (407g) and contact details for Green Isle Foods Ltd (the manufacturer of the product) are also given. Nice informative box this is and inside the pizza is tightly sealed in a see-through plastic wrapper.
Well the pizza looks nice enough. Large and round and reasonably thick, it has visible light coloured cheese on there along with some red peppers, onions and slices of spicy looking chicken.
To cook it you simply pop it in the oven for 22-25 minutes and thats it. When cooked in that time the cheese of course melts and the pizza looks nice enough and gives off a slight garlic smell.
Taste wise though this pizza fails to excite me. The base is thick and made of bread and it goes crunchy and its hard to eat. The tomato sauce is thick and tasty though and topped with not too much cheese which is mozzarella and therefore a bit bland and there is only 13% cheese in total which isn't alot at all. The red peppers and onions are nice enough though but again there isn't a lot and there is a small hint of garlic and herbs running through it. The chicken though is tasty and chunky though again there wasn't much of it on the pizza but what there was, was tasty and succulent enough to be fair. It had a spicy seasoning on it again of garlic and paprika and a hint of chilli though it wasn't blow your brains out hot or anything like that.
All in all I felt this was an economy tasting pizza. I didn't like the bread base for starters and would have appreciated a bit more flavoursome cheese on it though like I say the chicken was nice enough but I wouldn't refer to this as a loaded pizza...it simply wasn't. I wouldn't go out of my way to repurchase this again in the future sadly as it simply isn't worth eating all those calories for!
Nutritional Information Per 1/4 Pizza:
Available in all good supermarkets and if not on offer will cost about £1.50 a pizza and other varieties from this range are available.
Summary: Won't be buying it again!
