“ Brand: Morrisons / Type: Pizza „
This is the second thin and crispy pizza that I have tried from Morrison's and from the first one I tried (Margarita), I had high expectations for this one. This is the Garlic and Chicken Pizza from there own brand range and it costs £1.
It comes in a cardboard box that is 22.5cm x 22.5cm x 3cm in size and on the front it has a picture of the actual pizza itself, which looks very nice. The front has this picture along with the name of the pizza and a big red strip on the right hand side that has the price very boldly. The sides have pictures of the pizza and the price and the rear is plain but contains the nutritional and product information. The main thing that drew me to buying this pizza was the price and the topping. I like chicken on pizzas, but had never seen garlic and chicken so I had to try it.
On opening the box, the pizza is wrapped in a thin cellophane wrapper that keeps it fresh and free from contaminants. On opening the wrapper, the first thing I noticed was the strong smell of garlic that came from it. Luckily I like garlic a lot so this was not a problem for me. On the whole, the pizza in its frozen state looked to have a similar quantity of topping compared to the box picture, which I was pleased with. On the topping there is chicken, cheese, a tomato sauce, garlic oil and spinach. The chicken was cut up quite small, but there still seemed a good covering and the added spinach was a nice addition to it.
It took me 20 minutes to cook this, which is a bit longer than the 14-16mins recommended time. The smell that came from the kitchen when cooking was very nice and made me quite excited to trying the pizza. Once cooked, the chicken and cheese made the pizza lightly golden on top and the crusts were lightly golden too. I found that the topping on this pizza was right to the edge, which meant that there were less dry crusts to contend with.
The pizza was easy to cook as the base was thin enough to cook through-out quite well, but it was thick enough to easily hold. It is rare that I said this, but the cooked pizza actually looked like the picture on the box! The pizza had a nice garlic smell to it which wasn't too overpowering but was noticeable. The topping combination made for a nice tasting pizza that was full of flavour. The base was well cooked and not too thick, the tomato sauce and cheese were nice and the chicken pieces were well cooked and a good edible size. I didn't notice the spinach on the pizza that much, but then the taste of this was probably overpowered by the other toppings.
On the whole it was a very tasty pizza that is another great addition to the Morrison's pizza range. I did find that the little bits of crust were a little dry, but I dipped these in mayonnaise and this made them much tastier. Looking at the ingredients, it appears to contain not many unnecessary ingredients and has a good amount of chicken (12%), cheese (16%) and garlic oil (2.9%). Health wise, like any pizza it's not great, but as part of a meal it is a great and tasty addition.
Overall I am going to give this pizza 5/5 as it a really nice pizza and I am definitely going to buy it again.
Thanks for reading.
