“ Brand: Marks & Spencers / Type: Pizza „
I've tried most of Marks & Spencers pizzas and have so far found them all to be of a good quality. This pizza I hadn't had before but it didn't disappoint.
The pizza cost £2.99, is about 10" in diameter and weighs 370g. The packaging suggests one pizza serves two (I have a bigger appetite so don't stick to this) and per half pizza you are consuming 570 calories, 20.2g fat of which 8.3g saturates, 7g sugar and 2.4g salt. This pizza is definitely not one for those counting calories but as part of a balanced diet and all that! For those with allergies, it contains cows milk, wheat and gluten. The pizza is cooked in 10 minutes at gas mark 6 or 15 minutes if cooked from frozen (freeze on day of purchase and consume within one month).
The pizza is not the most imaginative when it comes to toppings having tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese and pepperoni. The double aspect comes from there being two layers of pepperoni, one of these on the base covered by cheese and then another layer on top of that.
On first look at the pizza it doesn't look like there is much to it but the final result was quite pleasing. The cheese was layered thickly across most of the pizza and there was plenty of pepperoni which tasted like it was good quality. My one criticism would be that the topping tended to be thick in the middle but thinned towards the edges in some areas - but not the whole pizza.
One of the issues I sometimes have with pizzas is the base being too thick and doughy as I prefer a thin crispy base. I would say the base on this pizza is nearer thin than thick with the crusts being consumable without feeling like you've just eaten a great mass of dough.
All in all this was a good pizza and probably one of the nicest pepperoni ones that I've eaten.
