Special tomato sauce, Chicken, Bacon, red Onions, Fresh tomato, 3 blends of Mozzarella, Monterey Jack, Cheddar cheese & drizzle of creamy ranch sauce

Tops Club Pizza Review

The Lads found themselves in London again, We had told the wives we were attending a Career Path Development Conference. Yeah right… lol, but somehow it seemed to work as the missuses like the idea we are trying to work on themselves and become better persons (or perhaps they are just glad that we are elsewhere?). So we had found a lovely Tops Pizza outlet before and were keen on a return visit. Scanning through the menu we decided on the Tops Club which we guess is the speciality of the house, we threw caution to the wind and had the Hot Dog stuffed crust on the Supersize base.

Wow the pizza looked awesome when it arrived with a beautiful criss cross effect on the top with ranch sauce. The base was excellent with a pleasantly browned crust and was what we call the Goldilocks scenario (not too thin or too thick, not too crispy or too doughy) The hot dog crust seemed like it was made of quality meat which was a relief. The special Tomato sauce was all good with a rich indulgent taste. The Mozzarella, Monterey Jack and Cheddar Cheese is a favourite of ours and we think law should be passed making Monterey Jack compulsory on all pizzas. Chicken & Bacon is a marriage made in heaven (unlike our living nightmares) and the Chicken was tender though the chunks were a bit on the small side.

Large slices of fresh Tomato covered top and we are always pleased when they are not too sharp tasting. The red Onion was decent and as we say the drizzle of creamy Ranch sauce brought out the flavour of the Chicken. A great Pizza and it was the Tops! Travelling back we made up some nonsense about the conference as a cover story but strangely we were never asked about it.

A massive thumbs up from The Pizza Lads

The Chicken Tops Pizza Review

The Lads were off to follow their football team down south again, so we made a point of looking for a Tops Pizza restaurant after we had a good experience before. The missuses were getting fed up with us disappearing all the time and our marriages were hanging by a thread. But as Bill always says “if they don’t like it, they know what they do”. With these words of wisdom guiding our actions we were off out the door (never knowing if we were going to get back in!).

Anyway enough personal stuff, we arrived early for the game and located the Tops Pizza branch. Ted was to make the Pizza choice as he had won the coin toss. He decided to go for the Chicken Tops on a Hot Dog Crust base. I’ll let him have this one, as we normally just have a plain base so we can judge the toppings better.

So pizza arrived freshly cooked and looking lovely, the Hot Dog Crust was pretty OK as it provided a nice contrast with the Chicken, it sometimes doesn’t work with very meat intensive toppings. The special Tomato sauce was rich and full of flavour. The Chicken pieces were small but tasty and tender and contrasted with the sweet and tender Sweetcorn. Finished off with a good helping of Mushrooms and Green Pepper. A perfect Chicken Pizza experience. We were on cloud nine until we went and lost at the football and the thought of the nagging we were going to face when we returned home. Back to reality…

Peri Peri Lover Pizza from Tops Pizza Review

Tops mozzarella cheese, Special tomato sauce, Peri Peri Chicken, Chorizo, Roquito Peppers, Red Onions & Fresh Tomato

The Peri Peri Lover Pizza Review

The Tops Pizza Chain was a new one to the lads as Midland based dudes as it’s based mainly down in London and the south.

We had been allowed by the missuses to go and watch a footie match down in London and hey were out and about so Pizza before the game was a must. So we spotted a Tops Pizza outlet and we were in our zone. So how would it compare to the larger chains? Here goes…

We choose the Peri Peri Lover on a deep pan base. The base was excellent and tasted really fresh and had just the right amount of crispy and chewiness. The special tomato sauce was rich and thick and had a tangy taste. The main act was of course the Peri Peri Chicken and we have to say it was Nando quality in our opinion, tender and had a real kick to it. The Chorizo always goes well with chicken and gives a lovely contrast. Forgot to mention the Cheese which was nothing out the ordinary but good. The Peppers and Onions added indulged the flavour of the Chicken. Finally there was a good helping of fresh Tomato, chunky and fresh and really topped things off a treat.

So is Tops The Tops? It was excellent and we really hope they expand across the UK , but next time we see one we shall visit without a doubt.

5 stars and a massive thumbs up from The Pizza Lads

The Tre Gusti Pizza Review

The Lads were now facing the end of summer and coming to terms with the Autumn chill, the holidays were a distant memory and with only a minimal chance that the credit cards used to to pay for these summer extravagances could be cleared by next summer.

The mood was down and this was compounded when Teds missus decided to buy the tins of Christmas chocolates “while they still had some!” (this is still in October by the way). Man, you’ve gotta be kidding! So scraping together the last of our resources and throwing financial caution to the wind we ended up sitting in Prezzo, which can cost a few more pennies than some other outlets, But hey we deserved it, don’t we?. We realised we hadn’t reviewed the Tre Gusti yet, so here goes.

This is a serious Prezzo classic and when it arrived promptly and hot and fresh from the oven we were greeted with a fantastic pizza, a true delight. The Pepperoni and Pancetta really setting off the lush seasoned chicken, not too much rosemary but enough, and a decent pizza base that was soft and crispy all at the same time. With classic melting cheese and tomato topping, perfect!. Another triumph!

Garlic Sizzler Pizza from Pizza GoGo Review

Tomato sauce, Chicken, Bacon, Pepperoni, Green and Red Peppers, drizzled with Garlic Sauce

Garlic Sizzler Pizza Review

The lads were being forced to go to some wedding reception by the wives, Bills missus was good friends with the bride. We had a peak at the what food was on offer and it was just going to be things on sticks, sausages, pickled onions and cheese and pineapple! Oh man this was a low budget affair. The lads had devised a plan to get a decent pizza eat on the way, so had told the wives to go on ahead as we had to get some petrol (gas for our USA devotees) for the car.

So after 10 outfit changes and reassuring the wives that they looked perfect and no big bums were to be seen (it had to be done) they eventually departed. The lads threw on the all purpose suits which cover weddings, funerals, interviews, court appearances etc.

We headed to Pizza GoGo as it was not too far from the venue. We scanned the menu and still feeling that we could do without this party we thought we would punish all in breath range of us, so the Garlic Sizzler it was. The pizza duly appeared and we tucked in…

Appearance wise it looked liked what we thought, the base was a bit overcooked at the edge and the crust was a bit hard work to chew through, the dough taste was reasonable and seemed fresh. The cheese had toasted well on top and was nice and stringy. The tomato sauce was a bit bland and thankfully there wasn’t much of it. Onto the main toppings, the chicken seemed a bit processed but had toasted to decent brown on top and was acceptable. The bacon again seemed like reformed processed meat and was a bit ham like but OK. Pepperoni was in contrast a good variety, spicy and not too greasy. The Green and Red Peppers added some nice colour but didn’t really lift the pizza taste wise and the Garlic Sauce drizzle was obviously not fresh garlic, however it did taste reasonable, but the actual breath test will be later when we meet the wives. So we were not overly impressed with this offering and have had much better. Unfortunately Bill’s nerve cracked on the way to the wedding reception and he was eating extra strong mints like they were going out of fashion, but Ted stayed the course and his wife was very displeased with the pungent aroma, but after a few more drinks this was completely forgotten.

The Tune Thunder Pizza Review

The lads were on their travels again to the big smoke (London for all non UK followers), we had heard through the pizza underground grapevine (actually Ted found them on the internet, but hey it doesn’t sound as good does it!). So the underground, darkweb, word of mouth, need to know, Mums the word grapevine informed us that a chain called Pizza Go GO was the place to be.

So the lads needed no more prompting and were ready for an early start and Ted told the missus to “wake me up before you go go, cos I’m going to Pizza go go”. Wham sang something like that and wham was also the sound of Teds wife smacking him around the Mooey (face to non UKer’s) ,

Anyway we are losing the plot now, off we went and after getting lost in London eventually found this oasis of pizza dreams. We were in the mood for something different, and scanning the menu most of it seemed pretty standard till we saw the Tuna Thunder. Wow that sounded awesome and Bill wondered if the Thunder part comes later on .?

On to the pizza, we just had the Standard Pizza base which we felt could have been a bit crispier, but it was reasonable and fresh. The toppings were nicely arranged and consisted of Tuna, Fresh Tomato, Fresh Garlic & Green Chillies. The Tuna was in little chunks and was tasty but not mind blowing. The Tomato was sweet and tangy and the Green Chillies were kicking. We felt Tuna and Chilli to be an odd choice but it worked. All rounded off with fresh Garlic which the Missuses always appreciate.

So all in all, we were happy if not blown away. By the way the Thunder part does seem to happen later!

DILLON JAMES Pizza Review from MOD Pizza, DILLON JAMES Review

DILLON JAMES Pizza Review from MOD Pizzas

What they say
DILLON JAMES – Mozzarella, asiago, fresh chopped basil, garlic, sliced tomatoes, red sauce

What we say
The lads visited the mecca of pizza outlets, maybe that’s pushing it a bit but MOD is an excellent pizza maker. It’s a no fuss menu and really straightforward to order a standard option or create your own and you watch it being constructed before your eyes and you can even add any toppings you want at no extra cost, which is a dangerous thing to confront the lads with so we stuck to the standard option.

Now the thing is that the names of the pizzas are totally random, were guessing the person who thought of the combo first? but we don’t know.

We went for the Dillon James standard as it comes, no extra Dillons for the lads lol. The pizza was literally in front of us hot and fresh within 10 minutes, it looked unfussy but with nicely toasted edge crusts and cheese. The base is fairly thin and pretty crispy so if you like soft doughy bases you may be out of luck. The red sauce was indeed red and tomato-y. Mozza and asiago were slightly unevenly spread but generous and the stringiness factor was spot on.

With the asiago adding a nuttier and creamier taste than standard mozza. Then it was a bit of basil adding a peppery flavour and finished with some garlic and sliced tomato. It was all very fresh tasting and for really a basic margherita style pizza it was very nice. The Dollar cost was low as well . Obviously we would really have liked to have some additional toppings ourselves, maybe the sausage, but then it wouldn’t be a Dillon James would it.

Good pizza, good price, quick service.

Dominic Pizza Review, Dominic MOD Pizza Review

White sauce, asiago, fresh chopped basil, red onion, sliced tomatoes, mild sausage

Dominic Pizza Review

The lads were once again back in the big city and our port of call is always to seek out a Mod Pizza outlet which we highly rate. Upon arrival we scanned the menu and were met as always with a strange names given to the pizzas. We are secretly hoping that they introduce a Bill or Ted one (hint, hint) but for now though Ted wanted the Fred, Bill vetoed that as he hated a guy called Fred at College (good looking dude who always got the girls). Anyway we opted for the Dominic as we recalled no problems with any guys with that name.

The Dominic was ordered the standard base as they don’t offer the multitude of fancy bases other outlets do. To be honest the frappé latte flavour garlic and olive with stuffed plastic cheese and hot dog crust is totally overrated in our opinion. Anyway when it arrived it looked pretty pale due the white sauce which was Creamy and a great alternative to red sauce. The base itself was nicely cooked though a little thin. It was sprinkled with sharp asiago cheese made in the foothills of some Italian hill or other. The sausage was a bit too mild for our liking and could have done with more flavour. It was accompanied by fresh chopped basil, red onion and sliced tomatoes which gave the offering a nice flavour range.

So we were overall fairly happy though we felt this combo was a weak offering really compared to some and had a certain blandness about it, not too bad but not one for us.

Mad Dog Pizza from MOD Pizza Review

For Meat Lovers, mozzarella, pepperoni, mild sausage, ground beef, red sauce

Mad Dog Pizza Review

The lads had taken a couple of weeks off to enjoy the Holiday season, however goodwill was in short supply in the Bill and Ted households and the wives were keen to turf us out from under their feet.

We had decided to go to London to catch a footie match and of course this would take us near a Mod pizza outlet. So we were on our way asap. We took in the pizza joint before going to the game and upon arrival scanned the menu. The one that jumped out to us was the Mad Dog, now exactly why its called that we have no idea, but they all have pretty strange names so who cares.

The pizza showed up in no time and it looked awesome with a rustic looking base, no machines were involved in this creation. The toppings seemed to be generously heaped on and the cheese had a lovely toasted look to it. So we dug in, the base was pretty thin and we would have preferred a slightly thicker one. However it tasted fresh and was not soggy. The red sauce was piquant and rich and was amongst the best tomato sauces we have had. The mozzarella was thick and as we said nice and toasty with a chewy stingy texture. The meat toppings are pepperoni which had a good bite and peppery taste, mild sausage was good and meaty and not too greasy. The ground beef was tender and of a high quality.

The overall result is a really indulgent pizza and one we would heartily recommend.

Classic Caspian Pizza from MOD Pizza Review

Classic Caspian comes with a BBQ sauce base, mozzarella, red onion, grilled chicken, blue cheese & BBQ swirl finish.

The Classic Caspian Pizza Review

The lads had really enjoyed eating at Mod pizza the last time we were dragged to the shopping centre, so when we were told by the missuses that new curtains were critical to our future well-being we remembered that a curtain shop was near to the Mod Pizza outlet.

So suggesting this, it was off to the “Mall” (for our American friends) . We managed to slip away in the curtain shop fairly easily and headed to Mod Pizza. We studied the menu and the Caspian looked good.

The pizza arrived pretty quickly and it looked splendid. The base was a double crust and man it was good. Bill said that they must make the dough instore? Anyway, topping wise the BBQ sauce was tangy and the mixture of Blue Cheese and Mozza was a revelation. The Blue Cheese was strong and powerful and the Chicken was nicely grilled and tender. Our only complaint was that the BBQ swirl on top was a step in the overkill direction, however we realised that it was just for show. So all in all a top rated pizza.

The ladies were still studying curtains when we slipped back and I don’t think we were missed at all. Could’ve had a second helping! Oh well…

A great thumbs up from The Pizza Lads….

Lucy Sunshine Pizza from MOD Pizzas Review

Classic Lucy Sunshine comes with Garlic, Mozzarella, Artichokes, Parmesan & Red sauce dollop finish.

The Lucy Sunshine Pizza Review

The lads had heard of a new pizza chain opening in the UK and although they don’t have many branches at the moment we happened to come across one. The missuses had decided to hit the January sales to buy more clothes that despite being raved to us over when purchased (we’ve learned to pretend interest), we guarantee we will never see the item again and if we happen to remember it later we will be told that it A) wasn’t liked B) has been taken to a charity shop.

Anyway as the designated drivers we had to tag along and lose ourselves in the shopping centre. So here we were at Mod Pizza and it promised to be a real treat, a quirky take on the Mod movement that somehow fits in well with pizzas. We went for the Lucy Sunshine as Lucy was Teds first girlfriends name so that seemed a good omen. It was a sparse looking pizza and the toppings seemed a bit mean but as we have said before, dollops of toppings a good pizza does not make! And although Bill was a bit unsure about the artichokes it somehow all worked fantastically.

The base was a standard crust and it was lovely, Soft and crispy with hand made look. The cheese was awesome and the red sauce was so different that we would have it for breakfast if we could. Now the toppings can be totally modded which we didn’t do this time, so beware Mod Pizza, next time we go were taking full advantage.

An amazing new pizza outlet that you must try, A big thumbs up from The Pizza Lads!

Oh you think that’s the best coat you have ever had (i’ll try to remember lol)

Pepperoni Pizza Review from Frankie & Benny's

Pepperoni Pizza from Frankie & Benny’s Review

What they say
San Francisco style sourdough with an Italian soul. Hand-stretched topped with Pepperoni and mozzarella

What we say
Simple pizzas can often be the best as long as the few toppings are of superior quality. Often loads of toppings can cancel and overpower others and it usually ends up with being the hottest / spiciest toppings taking the limelight. So the lads went back to basics and apart from a margherita the pepperoni is the simplest. So our mates at Frankies would have their chance to impress us.

First off it was hot and looked lovely, pepperoni is of course THE classic topping for good reason, its the perfect taste experience.

The sourdough base is thin and and best eaten with knife and fork. It was tasty and flavourful and edges were chewy and satisfying. The tomato sauce was generous and one of the better ones of the big pizza chains. Mozzarella cheese was not too thick but very toasted on top and not too stringy or gooey, taste was very acceptable. The pepperoni hits all the right notes: meaty, spicy, a little sour, and chewy, with a paprika bite and we felt it was a fine grind of cured pork and beef. Lush

The classic pizzas are the best and this rated highly in our opinion

New York Giant Pizza from Frankie & Benny’s Review

What they say
Tender and juicy pork & beef meatballs, chicken, bacon, ham, pepperoni, roasted red pepper, red onion and mozzarella on a BBQ base

What we say
The lads were finally free to go out and enjoy a pizza after the latest lockdown so we decided to visit Frankie and Bennys. Obviously things were not as straightforward as they used to be but the staff made things as hassle free as possible.

We had a look at the menu and the range was not too extensive at the moment but what they offered seemed enticing. The New York Giant seemed to be made for our tastes and so that was for us!

The chain only seems to offer the one base variety which is the San Francisco style sourdough and has that characteristically tangy flavour profile. To be honest we probably wouldn’t have chosen this by choice as Ted is not a sourdough fan but it was very acceptable with a definite hand stretched look and nicely browned edges, not too doughy and not sloppy. The overall presentation was mouthwatering and the toppings were liberally applied which pleases the lads. The bbq sauce was sweet and rich with a tinge of tanginess ,also it was applied generously. Mozzerella was pretty good, tasty and luxurious. The pork & beef meatballs were juicy and tender and hit the spot. The chicken was in fairly large chunks and were excellent.

The ham on the other hand seemed to be lost on our pizza , in evidence yes but not standing out. Pepperoni was spicy and deeply satisfying. Bills a big fan of roasted peppers and the roasted red pepper on this pizza was smooth and juicy. It was all topped off with a fair amount of red onion which provided a nice contrast to the meat toppings.

So after the delay in reviews due to the lockdown this was a perfect restart to our reviewing adventures.

A recommended pizza that we suggest you seek out and try. Thumbs up…

Meatball Feast Calzone from Frankie & Benny’s Review

Pork & beef meatballs, pepperoni, chicken, red onion, red pepper, mozzarella and BBQ sauce

Meatball Feast Calzone Review

The Pizza Lads were having a Pizza policy business conference debate brainstorming session between themselves. Bill said that it is our duty to bring every aspect of the Pizza world to our followers eyes, and that we don’t seem to have done any Calzone reviews. Ted was disbelieving but it was true! So without further ado, we hurried off to rectify this situation. Now as our expert followers know, that a Calzone is basically a folded Pizza and according to Wikipedia, an interesting fact is that “In Italy, Calzones are popularly believed to be the most efficient type of Pizza for home delivery.

This popular credence has some scientific ground as the folded nature of the Calzone results in a lower surface-to-volume ratio than a traditional Pizza resulting in better heat retention during the journey from the Pizzeria to the buyer’s home. This results in a Calzone being delivered warmer than Pizza all things equal. Ohh Err, still makes sense and Ted remembers one notable Pizza chain delivery Pizza that ended up somehow folding itself into a Calzone and he reckoned it was all the better for it! Anyway were losing the plot. Off to Frankie and Benny’s we went as the big chains rarely offer Calzone. The offering looked like a huge Cornish pasty and with a nice charred bubbled look. The Dough was nice and chewy with a slightly crisp edge.

The Meatballs were fresh tasting and delicious with a hint of seasoning. The Pepperoni had a good bite but wasn’t overwhelming the other ingredients. The Chicken added a diverse twist and was tender. Red Onion, red Pepper, Mozzarella and BBQ sauce completed the line up, although we felt that the red Onion was not required really, but the red Pepper was lovely. The Cheese was pretty cheesy indeed and the BBQ sauce was smoky tasting. So a really nice dish and the overall combination was a winner..

BBQ Chicken Pizza Review

The lads had had lots of feedback from the website and whilst all favourable, one person commented that the bulk of our reviews are of Domino’s, Papa John’s and Pizza Hut. Now we were really angry about this (not lol), but we get the point although in our defence the big Pizza chains are the ones that most people go to for Pizza. But hey we are nothing if not adaptable (which has been a great help considering our missuses), so we decided to broaden our horizons. We realised that Frankie and Benny’s offer a wide Pizza range and so off we went.

The restaurant was pretty busy so we feared that we may have a long wait. Scanning the menu we decided on the BBQ Chicken Pizza, always a winning combo. We did have a bit of wait but when it arrived at our table it was still good and hot. The look of it was a bit dull and brown in our opinion but obviously the taste is what matters. The Pizza base was nice with a crispy chewy texture and the toppings were virtually edge to edge. The BBQ sauce was pleasant and tangy. The Cheese had been nicely toasted and was stringy and thick with a mouth watering aroma. The slices of Chicken were small but tender and juicy with a pronounced flavour. It was topped off with some Chives which brought out all the other flavours.

So a good solid offering that delivered, would we have changed anything? maybe some bacon! but that’s just us.

Carne Calzone from Bella Italia Review

Folded pizza with pomodoro sauce -Meatballs, beef ragu, pancetta, red onion and mozzarella

Carne Calzone Review

The lads were back at Bella Italia, the missuses had sent us out to buy some Christmas gifts for some relatives. Of course we had been given a list of exactly what to buy and from where. But the lads are nothing if not inventive and we decided to throw ourselves wholeheartedly into this task, but our real agenda was to Shop hard and see if we could save some money to enable a pizza purchase. After a couple of hours we were all shopped out, but our reward was that we had saved enough cash from our efforts for the Pizza treat.

So scanning through the menu at Bella’s we decided on one of three Calzone’s on offer, obviously the meaty one for us.

We didn’t have too long to wait for our Calzone to be served and it looked a treat with a lovely browned dough casing. It was good and hot as well. Digging in we appreciated the dough’s light texture and it tasted splendid. The Pomodoro sauce (tomato) had the taste of the sweetest tomatoes with a salty, garlic tinge. The fillings were Meatballs which were smallish and had a rich solid flavour and they combined well with the deep robust taste of the Beef Ragu. The Pancetta contrasted well and was lovely. It was enhanced with the addition of pretty strong red onion and packed with soft and creamy mozzarella.

So we were well pleased and it was a good offering and one we will would eat again. Getting home the missuses were suspicious that we had been indulging ourselves, but we had got what they wanted and with correct change, so a right result for the lads.

Frutti di Mare Pizza from Bella Italia Review

King prawns, mussels, squid, queen scallops, mozzarella & chilli on a tomato base.

Frutti di Mare Pizza Review

Bill was ranting to Ted today about the lack of seafood topped pizzas we had reviewed, but Ted said that he didn’t like seafood very much. Bill put his foot down and said we are the pizza review lads, so all pizzas need to done and we may as well go the whole hog and do a full on seafood pizza review of the fishiest pizza we can find. Reluctantly Ted had to take one for the team so they did a quick search and decided on the Frutti di Mare from Bella Italia. So off we went to the local Bella Italia and it duly arrived at the table.

It looked good with subtle colours contrasting with deep red tomato sauce and browned base edge. The base itself was fresh and not overdone with edge to edge toppings, the dough had soaked up the tomato sauce flavour to a degree, which made it delicious. The mozzarella was was not too thick and we felt a bit more was in order but it was tasty. The chilli was fiery and really caught the back of the throat.

Onto the main show – The queen scallops were impressive in size and Bill commented they were not to chewy as they can sometimes be, but not very flavourful (Ted disagreed-he said they were awful – not being a seafood lover). The King prawns were tender and full of flavour and both were happy there. The Mussels were not as fresh as Bill liked and he thought they may have been frozen ones, but that’s only speculation (Ted didn’t like them). The squid was a little bit chewy with an unusual overly salty taste Bill remarked (Ted hated them – not being a seafood lover).

So really it’s a case of if you like Seafood a lot or not, Bill gave the pizza a six out of ten, sadly Ted only one. Ted was not converted, so only Bill’s opinion counts in this review, a disappointing overall offering in his opinion. Bill also added that the ingredients to this pizza needed to stay with the pasta and not put onto a pizza base.

Diavola Forte Pizza Review

The lads were fed up with home cooking pizzas for our recent reviews and we wanted to be waited on. We discovered that Bella Italia has an outlet near to us and without further ado we were off. Upon arrival we scanned the menu and were drawn to the Diavola Forte pizza, now our regular viewers know that we always want to try new things and if the pizza has a title with words we have never heard of, then that’s for us!

Apparently the literal translation of Diavola is deviled or salsa according the the interplonk.

The word Forte could mean tangy or feisty, so none the wiser really but good old N’duja sausage sounds just the ticket.

So after a short delay the Pizza was duly served up and it was good and hot and we had to admit it looked excellent with a nice variety of colours. So nice presentation. The base had a lovely brownish edge and was not too thin but very tasty. The Tomato sauce was a deep red shade and had an indulgent texture, but a fiery taste that really got us reaching for the water. The mixture of Mozzarella and Mascarpone is always an inspired combo and the Mascarpone had a creamy subtle palette. The spicy ’nduja sausage and salami really hit the spot and was full of flavour and not greasy at all, unlike some salamis. The Chicken was tender though a bit thin on the ground and the roasted peppers gave a rustic edge. The red onion and green Chillis finished off the proceedings and the Chillis had some kick in them. All complemented with some fresh rocket sprinkled on top.

We were very impressed with the overall quality and our mouths were pleasantly on fire by the last slice. Highly recommended and we thought we had better not tell the wives about this gem of a restaurant, our secret for now!

A big thumbs up from The Pizza Lads

Slow Cooked Lamb Pizza Review

The lads had seen a Italian Restaurant chain on their travels and after having noticed they do a good range of pizza’s we decided it was our duty to review one for our hungry viewers. We slipped out under cover of darkness while the missuses were messaging each other on Facebook and made our way.
 
The menu has really exotic sounding pizza’s, so we were spoilt for choice, but we decided upon something we had definitely not tried before. The Slow Cooked Lamb. Now the lads thought Lamb might be a big ask as it is notorious for being a bit tough and greasy, greasy we can live with, but tough, not!
 
The pizza arrived and it looked pretty awesome with the peppers adding a good colour contrast. It was nice and hot as well. The base was Stone baked and crispy and was up in the top ten bases we had eaten we felt. It was topped with a rich tomato sauce with a herby taste. It had Fontal cheese on it, which we had never heard of, so a quick google told us that is an “Italian cow’s milk cheese. Although made throughout the year, the best cheese is obtained during the summer when the cows are moved to an altitude of 550 to 700 meters (1,800 to 2,300 feet) and fed only with rich grass to give it a distinctive aroma.” Oh err, we hoped that our cows had been at the right altitude, the cheese had a mild, somewhat nutty flavor which was very nice. On to the Lamb which looked like it had been shredded and was a little chewy, but not too greasy and the taste was somewhat strange on a pizza but we could get used to it. The bit part ingredients were roasted peppers, spinach, balsamic red onions and pine nuts. All of which complimented the lamb and the pine nuts really lifted the whole combo.
 
So a good pizza, but perhaps we wouldn’t have the lamb again at this chain.
 
A fine thumbs up from The Pizza Lads

Chicago Town Deep Dish Four Cheese Pizza from Sainsbury's Review

Chicago Town Deep Dish Four Cheese Pizza from Sainsbury’s Review

What they say
A deep dish pizza base topped with tomato sauce, a blend of mozzarella, mature Cheddar, Monterey Jack and Emmental cheeses.

What we say
Now the lads thought we would review the infamous microwave pizzas from Chicago Town, now most people have had these at some point in their life but few would boost about it. They are cheap and quick to cook and seem a great idea! You can do these in the oven and we believe the results would be superior but in pizza lads style we used the traditional microwave method. The are small but as a quick snack fit the bill, so in the microwave they went for approx 2 mins or so.

They no longer supply the special foil cooking thing you had to construct, yes a bit of origami thrown in the mix was always fun but never seemed to improve the cooking result much. Okay they look and smell fairly acceptable and we suggest you let them cool a bit, as they will be hotter than the sun… The base as you might expect is a bit rubbery, this is the result of the cooking method mostly but the base is fairly thick anyway and quite doughy.

The sauce is tomato and very rich, a goodly amount is put on which helps the base go down your neck at least. The cheeses are the usual 4 cheeses in a four cheese combo and in all fairness it’s quite tasty and fairly gooey with a reasonable depth. They are good standby in freezer, but we being pizza connoisseurs (lol) would not recommend. They are what they are!

Prosciutto Mushroom & Mascarpone Pizza from Sainsbury’s

Prosciutto Mushroom & Mascarpone Pizza from Sainsbury's Review

Prosciutto Mushroom & Mascarpone Pizza from Sainsbury’s Review

Hand stretched wood-fired pizza base, topped with tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, chestnut mushrooms, cooked ham, mascarpone cheese, and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese with hand stretched sourdough A great pizza starts with a great base. So we make ours with slow-fermented sourdough for a distinctive savoury tang, and we hand stretch each one, so they stay light and airy. Then we flash bake them on lava stones in a wood-fired oven. We choose beechwood logs because they burn hot and evenly, giving us temperatures of up to 600˚C. It’s this combination of intense heat and porous lava stone that sets the dough in seconds, locking in all the taste. The result is the classic Neapolitan-style crust crisp, thin and full of flavour. We choose our toppings carefully too, and hand layer them, starting with a rich Italian tomato and fresh basil sauce and creamy shaved mozzarella. Then we add delicate slices of prosciutto cotto, meaty chestnut mushrooms sautéed with garlic and herbs, and spoonfuls of velvety mascarpone. Finished with a sprinkling of tangy Italian Parmigiano Reggiano for extra richness.

Prosciutto Mushroom & Mascarpone Pizza Review

The lads realised that that we had not reviewed a supermarket pizza for a while, so popping into our local Sainsbury’s we scanned the shelves and opted for one of the extra special type pizzas . Now all the big supermarkets do these big box oval pizzas these days and Ted reckons they are all from one factory.

Anyway we got it back home and cooked according to instructions. It looked fairly okay and was a good size for two people, the sourdough base was thin and crisply bubbled at the edges as it should be. It was quite tasty and not too hard, It was topped with a rich Italian tomato and basil sauce, the basil was a bit overpowering in our opinion but not nasty. The prosciutto cotto was not not very generous in helping size but was a decent texture ,sweet and full of flavour.

The mushrooms were delightfully garlicky and contrasted well with the creamy blobs of mascarpone which gave a superb texture contrast. It was finished with a sprinkling of tangy Italian Parmigiano Reggiano , but didn’t really add much to the proceedings.

So all in all for the price a reasonable offering, nothing to get  excited about but definitely not dreadful either .

Easter Chocolate Dough Ball Pizza from ASDA Review

Chocolate flavoured balls of dough with milk and white chocolate chunks, milk chocolate curls, mini marshmallows and chocolate sauce with sprinkles. Pop it in the oven for just five minutes and you’ll have a delicious, gooey, chocolatey treat.

Easter Chocolate Dough Ball Pizza Review

The lads were once again on child minding duties as it was the Easter holidays, so at our wits end we decided to share the pain with the good folks at our local supermarket Asda. We let them go on the rampage while we explored the fresh pizza counter. To our surprise we found that they were doing a Easter Chocolate Dough Ball Pizza! Now it really seemed like a cake to the lads and would have thought it would be on the bakery counter but that’s just us. So anyway in the basket it went and off we trotted.

It says it can be eaten hot or cold but we like our pizzas like we like our women, hot and fresh ! but maybe not as sticky as this concoction was. right moving on.

It only takes five minutes and was even gooier when it came out. So as you see it looks like a bunch of profiteroles glued together with chocolate sauce. The topping was Marshmallows, it’s a wonder that Asda hadn’t given the option to add more toppings like chilli beef or pineapple. But it is what it is.

So you ask what was it like. It smelled of chocolate obviously, the dough was a bit crusty and dense we felt and tasted of chocolate. The sauce was like a chocolate desert but that was nice we reckoned. And the marshmallows were marshmallowy. So as a pizza offering it sucked, as a cake it was okay, a bit rich and sickly and the amount of sugar in it could have sustained an everest expedition on it’s own.

Rediscover the pleasures of Italy in savouring this delicious pizza topped with pomodoro sauce and creamy balls of Mozzarella. To be shared… or not!

Picard Superior Margherita (Frozen) Pizza Review

The lads missuses were working hard to keep a roof over our heads and didn’t have much time left for shopping so it was left to the lads to sort this out. Now we were getting a cheesed off going to supermarkets, so Bill decided that we would try online home delivery from Ocado. So we added the usual Toilet rolls and tins of spam etc, but off course as we are the pizzalads we had to buy a pizza. We plumped for a frozen one which looked like it was an authentic Italian one and we all know that they make the best! Now it was not a cheap option so more overtime will have to be done by the missuses to cover are largesse.

The plain Margherita is we know a boring choice but only the Italians can produce a taste sensation from cheese and tomato. We cooked according to the instructions and when finished it looked really artisanal. It seemed that it was straight from a pizza oven freshly made. The smell was divine which we had not expected. So the base was a delicious thin wood-fired blistered base which had not gone hard in the cooking process but was still crispy . It was topped with fresh-tasting tomato sauce ,more sweet than sharp but with good balance with a touch of oregano. The quality mozzarella is obvious and not the mass produced stuff and had a lovely oozing quality, slightly salty we thought but nevertheless delicious. So obviously a short review due the toppings but we do recommended this and as far as frozen ones go, we couldn’t ask for better.

Chicago Town Takeaway Sweet Cola BBQ Pizza from Tesco Review

Chicago Town’s Takeaway Stuffed Sticky Sweet Cola BBQ Pizza is made with our amazing dough that bakes fresh in your oven, and – wait for it – topped with a delicious sticky sweet cola BBQ sauce, red cheddar, ham, mushrooms, red onions and of course, mouth-watering mozzarella. Why mess around with trying to find the takeaway menu in the kitchen drawer? We’ve even stuffed the crust with our signature tomato sauce for a true flavour sensation.

Chicago Town Cola BBQ Pizza Review

The lads had had to devote some time to looking after the kiddies during the school holidays so the wives can earn the dough to keep us in pizza. After a couple of hours of them  screaming we decided to share the experience with the good folks at Tesco… So we all trooped down there and within a minute the tantrums had started and everybody was looking at us but we cared not as Bill had seen a Pizza in the freezer section which fired our imagination..The incredibly titled Chicago Town Takeaway Sweet Cola Bbq Stuffed Pizza. Wow.

So after half an hour of letting the kids run riot and screaming and generally ruining everybody else’s shopping experience we headed for home with our pizza. Oven was on in no time and in it went. They say “Unique fresh, rising dough – Watch the dough rise before your eyes” on the blurb, so we stared through the oven door for 20 minutes and we hardly noticed anything. Anyway who cares, out it came and it looked good with a decent covering of toppings and browned crust but smelled very sweet. The dough was a bit stodgy but tasted OK for a frozen pizza, it had a tomato sauce stuffed crust which the lads were not keen on and it was no better than ketchup. The sauce on the pizza was strange and you would never know this was supposed to be cola, but the flavour of the BBQ was there and it tastes caramelised. It was sweet man.

The cheese was mozzarella and red cheddar which was fairly generous in amount and gooey. The toppings were ham, mushrooms, red onions which was fairly standard fare. nothing special but all OK. So all in all our impression was this didn’t work for us as the overall result is far too sweet. Sorry Chicago Town. Kids liked it though and after eating some of this they were bouncing off the walls just as the wives were due home from work.

American Sizzler Pizza from ASDA Review

Loaded with rich tomato sauce, a delightful duo of cheeses, spicy chilli beef, kickin’ chicken, pepperoni and fiery jalapenos (2 chilli rating)

American Sizzler Pizza Review

The lads had been sent shopping by the missuses and were determined to get a pizza for themselves, now the lads had had some disappointing experiences with pre packed pizzas so spotting the pizza counter at Asda supermarket we decided that was something we had to try. The front of the counter was packed with newly made pizzas or we could make our own creation, we decided on a pre done one and went for the American Sizzler Deep Pan 10″ which was a reasonable price and to be honest probably use the same pre packed toppings as the big chains. So upon arrival back home on went the oven.

When cooked the appearance was pleasing with a decent covering of toppings. The base was reasonably thick and was fairly light with just a slightly crusty outside. The tomato sauce was nice and tasty and spread evenly. Cheese was standard fare but not too generous, still it wasn’t a disappointment. Toppings were spicy chilli beef and that was tender and meaty with a fiery taste,  kickin’ chicken had a punch and was tender, pepperoni was a bit sparse (we have heard that the toppings are literally counted and we wouldn’t be surprised) but good and tender and it was rounded off with a handful of jalapenos and a sprinkling of cheese on top.

The overall offering was a good combination and we had to admit that we had not had many pizzas that were more fiery. The quality was on a pare with a chain one and in our opinion was far better than chilled pre packed ones. We were pleasantly surprised and will be reviewing more in the future.

Pepperoni Delight Stuffed Crust Pizza from Sainsbury’s

Hand stretched garlic and herb flavoured cheese stuffed crust and base topped with tomato sauce, mozzarella, two types of pepperoni and Cheddar cheese.

Pepperoni Delight Pizza Review

The lads were totally out of money as usual, Christmas was nearly upon us and what little money we had left had to be devoted to present buying for the missuses. We had of course left everything till the last moment and hit eBay and Amazon to order a variety of unlikely gifts in the hope they actually turned up before Christmas. Bill had gone for a toilet seat with a picture of The Pizza Lads on the lid. A watch from china costing one pound with free postage, a toilet roll with jokes on and a frying pan! Ted had gone for a giant wine glass, a barometer, a heated hair brush, anti ageing cream and a frying pan! (and say romance is not dead…!)

So fearing that this would be our last Christmas being married, we put our feet up and concentrated on solving our pizza craving with no funds, a quick look in the fridge revealed a Sainsbury’s Stuffed Crust Pepperoni Delight Pizza. It looked good so here we go.

We cooked it according to the instructions of course. Looking at the finished result and it appeared cosmetically very acceptable. The base was ultra thin and hadn’t crisped very well so seemed a bit soggy. To be honest we wondered if we lifted it up whether the entire middle would detach from the crust. The dough crust was just too stodgy for us and had been filled with the rubberyist cheese known to man, and what made it worse was that it tasted of nothing (Ted reckoned it wasn’t cheese and garlic at all). We thought there wasn’t enough cheese topping initially but it had a bit of depth to it.

The tomato sauce was quite sweet and not to our taste. The Pepperoni consisted of two types, big and small, which was reasonable and not too greasy and the amount was fairly generous. It came with a Garlic dip which was small.

So we were not overly impressed and don’t recommend this pizza. We realised that we were going to be in trouble for finishing this off as it was for the kids tea. Oh well, they’ll be pleased with the frying pans no doubt. Lets hope they don’t use them to clonk us over the head?

A Stonebaked, hand stretched thin and crispy Pizza base, topped with Garlic butter, Tomato sauce, caramelised Balsamic Onions, Mozzarella, feta and Mascarpone cheeses and sprinkled with Rosemary.

Feta Cheese & Caramelised Onion Pizza Review

The lads were moving upmarket in shopping habits, no more home bargains and netto for us, no! Waitrose supermarket is now our preferred choice. We remortgaged the the house and sold the car and headed off to get a luxury Pizza (only joking they are not too badly priced really). Our gaze took in the offerings on the shelf and we felt like something different, so we opted for the Feta & Caramelised Onion Pizza. Now we have never had Feta on a Pizza to our knowledge so were keen to experience it. It was said Bill, “an unusual-looking pizza in a way very dark and un-colourful” We also thought ideal for the forthcoming Halloween Party…

The base when cooked was crispy and thin and we both enjoyed it. The Tomato sauce was not in evidence too much and the garlic butter seemed to come through more. The Feta and Mozzarella Mascarpone mix was a good combination of sharp and creamy Cheeses, though we expected more of the Feta cheese it was delicate soft flavour tangy and salty. The caramelised Balsamic Onions were sweet and piquant. The herb taste was very much in evidence and not unpleasant. Taken as a combo, it was really different and very tasty even though it’s a non meat Pizza. The Pizza Lads were well impressed and would definitely go for this one again.

Stretched by hand in a time honoured fashion to create a crisp, bubbly crust Introducing our Extra Special Smoked Ham, Mushroom & Mascarpone Pizza, inspired by the finest pizzerias of Naples to create a truly indulgent experience. Our experts gently hand-stretch the dough, resulting in a thin and sumptuously soft base that, once cooked in our stone bake oven, creates a beautiful, bubbly crust. And to bring out the remarkable flavour of our dough, we hand top the base with only the best ingredients, giving you a slice of pure indulgence. Our Extra Special Smoked Ham, Mushroom & Mascarpone Pizza. Stretched by hand. Topped with care. Enjoyed by you.

Smoked Ham, Mushroom & Mascarpone Pizza Review

The Pizza Lads were out shopping for the weekly groceries (not by choice!) and we had been told by the wives we were allowed to have one chilled Pizza to cook at home. So we decided upon Asda. We scoped out the variety on offer and our eyes fell upon the Extra Special Hand Stretched Smoked Ham, Mushroom & Mascarpone Pizza, Now with a title like that it must be good and through the viewing window in the box, it did look pretty nice. So in the trolley it went and when we were home the oven was straight on.

Out the packet the appearance was pleasing as the Ham looked really fresh and Mushrooms smelled delicious and when cooked according the instructions the Mascarpone would have melted all it over. So on to the taste test… The crust was nice and light, thin/bubbly and the stone-baked dough was very good and tasted really fresh. The Smoked Ham had cooked well and was really tender and tasty.

The Mascarpone was creamy and light and had toasted nicely on top. The mushrooms were quite Garlicky but very moreish. Sauce was fairly standard but not unpleasant and we detected an underlying hint of Black Pepper and Lemon Juice. Very good all round and meets pizza chain standards. We might even volunteer next time to go shopping.

American Pizza Supermarket from Pizza Express Review

Our classic base, topped with pepperoni, creamy mozzarella & our famous passata

Sold at the Morrisons supermarket not the restaurant chain Pizza Express American Supermarket Pizza Review

The lads were still trying to tighten belts and cut back and economise. Bill had seen that Pizza Express do a supermarket cook at home pizza which promises the restaurant experience for less. So we felt that we had to try this out… Ted reckoned it couldn’t deliver as promised, as it wouldn’t be as fresh and the cooking process in our old gas oven is hardly the same.

So anyway we got ours from Morrison’s for about three pounds and we cracked it open at home and Ted threw away the box with instructions on before we had read them! Not wanting to go hunting in the bin we found the good people at Morrison’s helpfully list these on their website. The following including the spelling mistakes is genuinely on the site as below:

These are guidelines only as all cooking appliances vary in performance;

Oven cook – From Chilled. Cook It the Pizza Express way

1. The first step to pizza heaven is a pipping hot oven.
2. Get rid of all the packaging and even out the toppings. If you’re feeling creative, add some of your own.
3. Drizzle a little olive oil over you pizza to give it a crispier finish.
4. Place your puzaa directly onto the top shelf of your pre-heated oven.
5. Cook in line with the timings below. You’ll know it’s done when the cheese is golden brown and the base is crispy.
6. Remove carefully and serve it fresh out the oven (just like we do). Enjoy!
P.S. If there’s any leftover, please don’t reheat it, it’s nicer cold. Fan 200°C 9-11 mins / 220°C 9-11 mins / Gas 7 9-11 mins; Oven cook – From Frozen.

Cook It the Pizza Express way” So when the oven was “pipping hot” , we placed the “puzaa” in and cooked….lol.. But we are losing the plot so onto the pizza. It looked OK with a decent amount of toppings. The base was was fairly crispy but had overcooked a bit around the edges but not too bad. The Passata sauce was reasonable and had an indulgent taste. Cheese was very cheesy and had melted all over evenly.

The Pepperoni was a bit greasy and had created a pool of meaty grease in the centre of the Pizza, but after a couple of bites seemed pleasant. We had drizzled olive oil over as instructed and that had added a fresher taste. We could taste hints of Oregano, Black Pepper, Basil and White Pepper. The overall pizza was in our opinion not as nice as the restaurant offering and really seemed little different to other supermarket branded ones.

But it was Okay – A side way thumbs from The Pizza Lads

Veneziana Pizza from Pizza Express Review

Pine kernels, red onion, baby capers, black olives, sultanas, mozzarella and tomato

Pizza Express Veneziana Pizza Review
The lads had been dragged out again by the wives to the out of town shopping complex but the saving grace is that we know it has a pizza express, so all we need to do is slip off for an hour or so. So when they were trying on the 50th dress of the day we managed to disappear .

We wanted we try something different and the Veneziana certainly fitted the bill though we were a bit suspect of some of the ingredients being the meat and cheese freaks we are. Service was a bit slow but we have had worse and at least it was nice and hot and looked good. The classic base was the standard fair, slightly soft and sloppy, but very acceptable. Sauce was very nice with a rich deep taste . Mozzarella was reasonably thick with a good toasting on top and was delicious as always. Onto the the ingredients, gulp… The pine nuts were Crunchy yet butter textured, pleasantly sweet and were a real revelation on a pizza. The capers had a slight vinegar flavour but marginally salty with it (not our cup of tea).

The olives were salty with a bitter oily palette. The sultanas offset and contrasted the pine nuts and capers and were a welcome addition with a juicy texture. It was rounded off with red onions but we felt this was more for appearance sake than adding to the taste and we felt they were out of place on this combo. So all in all it was a very different Mediterranean inspired offering. We have to say we would not order this normally but different we wanted and that is what we got! We got back the clothes shop just as the 78th dress was being tried on… Arrghhhh!

Pollo Forza Pizza from Pizza Express Review

Chicken with hot chilli, sweet, spicy Roquito peppers, roasted peppers, garlic oil, mozzarella and tomato, finished with Gran Milano cheese on a Romana base

Pollo Forza Pizza Review

The lads were free once again from the wives clutches to enjoy a new pizza offering and bring that that review to our followers, we seemed to have done a lot of shop bought ones lately so we figured it was time to return to our roots. So we felt pizza express was a nice destination to get back on track. We would like to point out that we always pay for our pizzas in full but if any outlets would like to entice us in with bribes and such like we would be happy to go. Not that this would buy a favourable review as our integrity is at the forefront of all we do. But throw in a few beers as well and you never know (only joking), anyway enough waffling on for now.
We plumped for the Pollo Forza which sounded just the ticket. When delivered it was good and hot. It looked colourful with the array of peppers too. The base was standard pizza express and was reasonably thick, but a bit doughy. The edge on p.express pizzas is always fairly narrow compared to some but  was nicely crisped. Toppings were tomato sauce of course which was acceptable, mozzarella cheese was okay but not as thick and stringy as we would have liked. Chicken with hot chilli was decent, tender and had a decent kick. The sweet, spicy Roquito peppers and roasted peppers combination was for us the standout ingredient, succulent and full of flavour and lifted the pizza to a premium level. It was rounded off with garlic oil and Gran Milano cheese and that added slightly as well. So a fairly disappointing base pizza which was transformed by the peppers. A 6.5 out of 10 from the Lads.

American Hot Pizza from Pizza Express Review

Pepperoni, mozzarella and tomato, with your choice of hot green, Roquito or jalapeño peppers on a Classic base

Pizza Express American Hot Pizza Review
The Pizza Lads were cold, very cold and not just from the frosty stares the missuses were casting at us. They were in a foul mood as they said they were having to do everything to prepare for Christmas. Which we felt wasn’t fair as we had put up the Xmas trees and put the chocolates on (minus the half we had scoffed of course). No, we were just in the way and a Christmas miracle happened when they threw some money at us and told us to get out and have a pizza, now we are not so slow on the uptake sometimes and had departed the house even before the wives voice had finished echoing in the hallway.

Once clear of them having second thoughts we set sail for Pizza Express and it was poxy freezing out in the streets. We got to the restaurant in double quick time and scanning the menu the only option we considered was the American Hot. “That’ll warm us up” Ted said… The pizza duly arrived and looked a treat. The base was the Classic and was fairly thick in our opinion and with a light fluffy texture, with a nicely browned raised edge crust. The passata sauce was as expected and had a deep rich flavour, topped with well toasted mozzarella cheese which was nicely heaped on.

The pepperoni was quite generous, but had been a bit overcooked in our opinion and was tough going, taste wise it was reasonable. We had chosen the jalapeño peppers as our option and this was pretty potent but a bit thinly spread. So did we get hot under the collar with this offering? It was okay, nothing too special but what it did it did OK, apart from the pepperoni. A middle of the road rating.. Now back to face the music at home, oh man, this will be a long holiday season.

La Reine Classic Cook at Home Range from Pizza Express Review

Prosciutto cotto ham, mushrooms, olives, creamy mozzarella& our famous passata

Pizza Express La Reine Pizza Review
The lads had noticed that Pizza express do a range of cook at home pizzas and we were keen to try one to see if we could recreate that restaurant experience in our humble little abode.

We chose the La Reine Classic which is basically a ham and mushroom pizza which is never a bad thing. It cost about a fiver so obviously much cheaper than eating in house. When were moved the packaging it looked pretty good and the toppings were at least a fairly good covering. The cooking instructions say to Drizzle a little olive oil over your pizza to give it a crispier finish, and who are we to argue, so out came the extra extra virgin stuff that the missus had purchased and never used and splashed it over a bit.

So after the cooking time had completed we settled down for our feast and to fair it looked a treat. The base was a bit too crispy on the bottom as is so often the case when cooking pizzas in home ovens even though we had followed the instructions to the letter. However it wasn’t rock hard so we could live with it. The dough was OK but didn’t taste as fresh as we would have liked and felt a bit slimy on the tongue. On to the toppings then… The passata was decent proportioned and had a deep rich taste. The cheese was indeed creamy and had toasted well. The mushrooms were of a decent quality and were juicy and tasty. The Prosciutto cotto ham was delicately flavored, dry cured and had all the flavour we expected. A few olives were scattered about to little effect as they lacked that pungent bite.

So what was our verdict? Well Ted said that it was little better than a standard supermarket own brand offering and Bill reckoned it was nowhere near restaurant quality.

A six out of ten from The Pizza Lads

Mushroom & Truffle Pizza from Pizza Express Review

Sliced Portobello and closed cup mushrooms, mozzarella, ricotta, fresh rosemary and garlic oil on a béchamel base, drizzled with truffle oil ,a sprinkling of fresh parsley and shaved Gran Milano cheese on a Romana base

Pizza Express Mushroom & Truffle Pizza Review
The Pizza Lads were celebrating, we had won 25 pounds on a lottery scratch card and we were definitely not going to be telling the missuses about this windfall. We decided that we would blow our winnings on the most luxury sounding pizza we could at Pizza Express. Actually the cost didn’t reflect too badly, but was in the top range of the menu offering price wise.

The Pizza duly arrived and was reasonably hot and looked pleasant in a pale sort of way. The base was a Romana and looked crispy on the edges but was just a bit too soggy for our liking, but was a decent taste at least. The béchamel sauce was probably the reason for the slightly soggy base and was fairly bland.

The Sliced Portobello and closed cup mushrooms were a good combination and were fresh with subtle earthiness.  The mozzarella cheese was a bit thinly spread and saved to an extent by the creaminess of the ricotta. The top was scattered with fragrant, dry, flaking Gran Milano cheese, which had a granular texture with an intensely sweet flavour. So far – so so. Can this pizza be saved by the oils? The garlic oil was quite strong and The Pizza Lads didn’t see a single vampire on the way home!

The truffle oil had an Intense garlic aroma and a powerful truffle flavour and was simply gorgeous and a complete revelation on a pizza. The trimmings were rosemary and parsley and added nice finish. So all in all a different pizza, good and bad points yes, but a different experience. Ted wondered if the garlic oil would work on the missus as well as it seemed to on vampires?

Carbonara Pizza from Pizza Express Review

Pancetta, Mozzarella and Garlic oil on a Béchamel base, baked with a free-range Egg and finished with grated Gran Milano cheese and fresh parsley on a Romana base

Pizza Express Carbonara Pizza Review The lads had come into some money, searching down the back of the sofa they had found enough for a treat. Pizza Express here we come! So off we went and had a scan of the menu, now you may know we are suckers for new pizza offerings and the picture of a what looked like a fried egg on top of a pizza really got our juices going.

We had no option but to give this a road test… The pizza turned up and was well cooked and hot, although we felt the toppings were a bit thinly applied. The base was the Romana, which has a rustic look to it, and topped with a Béchamel sauce, which we found to be a pleasant change to Tomato. It was rich and creamy, though the flavour was a little under-pronounced for our taste. The Mozzarella and Garlic oil was pretty standard fare, but nice and added to the genuine Italian style feel. It came with grated Gran Milano Cheese which really kicked up the taste rating and subtle hints of Parsley were evident.

We had eaten all around and left the egg till last. Of course it wasn’t really fried despite it’s appearance but baked. Now baking eggs makes them a little rubbery and this was no exception, taste was OK. To be honest if they had stuck a fresh fried egg on it after cooking we would have been in heaven! So overall we are always pleased with new combos and this one was very interesting, commendable especially for the Béchamel sauce.

Margherita Bufala from Pizza Express

Margherita Bufala from Pizza Express Review

Margherita Bufala from Pizza Express Review

Buffalo mozzarella, tomato, fresh basil, fresh tomato, garlic oil, and oregano, finished with fresh basil and extra virgin olive oil.

Carbonara Pizza Review The Margherita Pizza Review
The lads are always intrigued by the strange sounding names that pizza express gives to the Pizzas, usually they are fairly standard in a way, but sound more exotic and perhaps justify the higher price point.

Now we are fans of Pizza Express offerings in general, so we decided to throw caution to the wind and pick a odd sounding one on our visit with looking at the picture or ingredients. So Ted took the lead and closed his eyes a bit and settled on the Margherita Bufala. Cool whats Bufala? Sounds like an insult from Bills misses! So ordering said Pizza and checking Google we discovered that its Italian for Buffalo Mozzarella or “Mozzarella di Bufala”.

Another mystery solved but hey we could have guessed from the ingredients. It turned up promptly and to be honest, looked like it had been left out in the garden on a windy day and leaves had landed all over it. So on to the base – all good and a nice texture and well cooked without being hard. The Cheese was decent and spiced up with fresh Basil, Garlic oil, and Oregano. We thought the Oregano was a bit overdone and took over a bit.

The Tomatoes were small and sharp and we would have preferred big slices of Beef Tomatoes. To be honest we were not big fans of the leaves either. They were a bit chewy for our liking. So all in all, not the best Pizza we have ever had.

It was OK but not something the we would rush back for. The Pizza Lads…

Quattro Carni Pizza from Pizza Express

Quattro Carni Pizza from Pizza Express Review

Quattro Carni Pizza from Pizza Express Review

Finocchiona, Coppa, Milano Salami, Pancetta, Tomato and Buffalo Mozzarella, finished with rocket and shaved Gran Milano Cheese on a classic base.

The Quattro Carni Pizza Review The lads were intrigued by the Pizza Express menu the last time we visited as the toppings seemed to have unusual names, last time it was Barbacoa. We also happened to notice the Quattro Carni Pizza which has Finocchiona and Coppa! We had no idea so vowed to come back and try it.

So giving the missuses the slip one day we found the opportunity. We had decided to Google these mystery toppings before we left and we discovered that Finocchiona is Pork Salami. Right OK, Coppa is Pork Collar! We like different, so we went for it. The pizza base was good and tasty as usual but would all the Pork’s work together? We are pleased to report that the combo was a real treat with subtle differences between the various types.

The Finocchiona has the taste of Fennel seeds, produce an intriguing sweet, anise flavor. The Coppa was quite fatty but tender. Milano Salami and Pancetta added to overall effect. Finished with rocket and shaved Gran Milano cheese to give a fresh summer looking appearance.

A decent option for Pork loving Pizza fans and a thumbs up from The Pizza Lads…

Barbacoa Pizza from Pizza Express

Barbacoa Pizza from Pizza Express Review Barbacoa Pizza

Barbacoa Pizza from Pizza Express Review

Smoky, spicy and full flavoured with pulled Barbacoa Beef, Spicy Chipotle Salsa, Garlic Oil, Mozzarella and Tomato, with a finish of fresh Tomato, Red Onion and fresh Coriander on a Classic base.

Pizza Express Barbacoa Pizza Review
The Lads had been forced into taking the missuses for a night out at a restaurant. So wanting a quiet life we opted for our local pizza express, so we could indulge in our pizza passion and they could have something else, they were keen on the Lasagne (but more of that later) Anyway on to the business in hand, we were confronted with a wide array of choice but as always we feel the need to bring you our view of the new options.

So the Barbacoa sounded different indeed and it was new. I (Ted) asked what Barbacoa was and none of us knew, so Bill got his phone out and checked on Wikipedia .. it says it’s “barbecue”.. So mystery solved. The base was just the standard classic, but no complaints from us on that. Cheese & Tomato checked all good. Now the toppings – Barbacoa Beef was tasty and we found it really full of flavour, a little greasy for our taste but a good and strong offering.

The Chipotle Salsa really had a kick to it with a faint hint of the Garlic Oil coming though. The fresh Tomato, Red Onion and fresh Coriander made this a busy looking Pizza, but just took the edge off the meats and enhanced the combo. So maybe not a classic but it was pretty okay.

A thumbs up from The Pizza Lads Pizza Express Lasagne….!!!

A message from The Pizza Lads Wives, who had the Lasagne and on this occasion wanted to add a few words of their very own… We had the Lasagne from the pasta menu and expected something good as this is Pizza Express who sell their selves as one of the best Pizza Restaurants in the UK. We were very surprised at the dreadful quality of the Lasagne in its presentation and taste. It turned up in a black dish that had obviously just been taking out the microwave.

The Lasagne itself was nothing more than Godawful wishy washy slop. It ran through my fork and i needed a spoon to eat it. Although the Lads Pizza’s were good, Pizza Express need to pay attention to other items on the menu if they are going to continue to offer an alternative.

Soho 65 from Pizza Express Review

Mozzarella and tomato with black olives, buffalo mozzarella and garlic oil, finished with rocket, shaved Gran Milano cheese and extra virgin olive oil on a Classic base

Pizza Express Soho 65 Pizza Review The lads had not been that kind to Pizza Express the last time we visited, We had the Vegan option and though passable did not appeal to us.

So in the interest of fairness we revisited our local and choose another option. Now you may be thinking we would go for the safe options. But no, the lads are committed to bringing you all the options so you can make up your mind yourself. Scanning the menu we opted for the Soho 65, not perhaps our traditional taste. The pizza was a “salad garden on a plate” Ted said, when it arrived at our table. The rocket was very much present,

Base and sauce were as usual the fine Pizza Express offering. A few black olives were scattered about to break up the green colour. The two cheeses complimented the rocket nicely and the Garlic and Olive Oil were not not to greasy tasting and to be honest all in all the Pizza as a combination offering worked well. The rocket really standing out with a pleasant mustard taste with a peppery bite. A nice option the lads agreed !

A thumbs up from The Pizza Lads
