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.

American Sizzler Pizza from ASDA

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.

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.

A big Asda thumbs up from The Pizza Lads

Cheese Meltdown Pizza from Asda Review

Generously topped with rich tomato sauce, and mounds of meltingly moreish mozzarella

Cheese Meltdown Pizza Review

The lads were being dragged around the local Asda by the missuses and while they were deciding on which of the latest balm covered scented toilet roll brands to go for, we disappeared down the next aisle when they weren’t looking.

After a brief search we found the chilled pizza cabinet and took shopping matters into our own hands. A wide variety of choice was available but as we had to get them to pay for it (with our money) we decided to go a bit plain.

The one that sprung to our attention was the Cheese Meltdown. Sticking it in the trolley under a multipack of crisps we made our way back to the wives and the bog rolls. They seemed to have settled upon an Almond scented variety.

Anyway Bill managed to get the pizza on the till belt under the crisps still and while they were chatting and the cashier rung it up and we got it in the trolley before they realized. We volunteered to unpack when we got home and got it in the fridge. They say possession is nine tenths of he law, so when it was discovered later we took the heat and got away with it.

They were due to go out so we had the pizza all to ourselves.

We heated it up according to the instructions. The base was not to thin, not too thick and quite pleasant and crispy. The Tomato sauce was rich and fairly generous, taste wise not too bad. Onto the topping, which is cheese believe it or not, there was round slices on mozzarella and a sort of cheddar / mozzarella grated mix. It had gone reasonably brown and looked appetizing. The cheese was also generous topped and tasted lovely.

All in all a decent basic pizza if not life changing.

Oh by the way the lotion covered almond scented toilet rolls were marvelous.

A thumbs up from The Pizza Lads
