Goodfellas Deep Pan Pizza
Advantages: Ham and Pineapple Heaven!
Disadvantages: Soggy Bottom!
So the other night I ended up not really being bothered about cooking for dinner, so thought as lazy as it might be I'll get myself a pizza - given that it was just for me was fine because it meant I could eat enough to be full and have the rest reheated the next day for work! Thing is though I love pizza, I'm happy to have almost any flavour of pizza so when I got to the supermarket deciding which one to buy was a real problem, and an annoying problem since my mum came to the supermarket with me and stood waiting for me to decide!

~*~ Ham and Pineapple ~*~
When I unboxed this pizza I hate to say it but I was really disappointed by the size of it - I was really hoping for something a bit bigger. It's only really the size of a small plate, rather than the large dinner plate size I was expecting - so for the price the size really wasn't enough for me, but still I wanted to eat it regardless. I cut off the packaging, which doesn't rip unfortunately even though I did try - and slid the pizza out of the packaging and onto a pizza tray and into my nice and warm Gas Mark 5 oven, that had been nicely heated up while I'd been looking for a pizza tray. Once the oven was nicely heated, I placed my pizza on it's tray into my lovely warm oven - and set my timer for 23 minutes, it is recommended for 22-24 minutes so I decided to go in the middle. However by the time my timer went off, the pizza wasn't really cooked enough for me - so I put it back in the oven for another couple of minutes. Even at that point the colour on the top of the pizza was quite pale, I'm a big fan of dark cheese round the edges of my pizzas - and this one still had pale cheese, and even on the edges the ham had only gone dark where it was quite close to the back of the oven. So without setting fire to these small areas of pizza I had to take it out, the pizza however was cooked, it was hot all the way through and the pineapple on top was lovely and warm in the middle and I love that about Hawaiian pizza!
The only problem was the fact that the base was still quite soft even though it had been on a tray that gave extra heat exposure to the base, but I put up with it just have to make sure I paid a bit more attention to it when I picked up each slice just in case anything fell off my slices. The brilliant part being that there was tonnes of ham and pineapple on top - I love a pizza showered in toppings and considering that you are paying just less than £3 for the pizza you really do need to have a lot of toppings to make it worth the money. The ham has a great, slightly smokey taste to it and the pineapple is brilliantly juicy and makes your mouth water just biting into it and having a good combination of cheese, ham and pineapple, on a really thick spongy pizza base. The base is meant to be deep pan, and it definitely is - it's really thick and spongy and tastes lovely - as I said the base is a little soft but I can put up with that for a pizza that tastes amazing!
Calories however and general nutritional values well, that might put you off a bit!
A quarter of the pizza is 276 calories,
5g of sugar,
10g of fat,
4g of which saturates,
0.9g of salt.
So you're looking at a thousand calories per pizza, which is quite a high amount for one item of food - so remember to eat things like this in moderation. Even as tasty as it is, it's not worth risking a coronary, or high cholesterol to have a pizza like this regularly!
~*~ Price and Availability ~*~
It's available in all good supermarkets and stores with pizzas for sale, at the moment it's £2.89 a pizza in Tesco or two for £4.50, so they are quite expensive, but they are worth the money even with a bottom that's a little bit soft!
Summary: Tasty pizza, that is high in calories, but gawd it tastes good!
