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…
