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!

Tabasco Pizza from Domino’s Review

Ground beef, onions, green and red peppers, jalapeño peppers with Tabasco flavoured mozzarella cheese stuffed into our fresh dough crust

Domino’s Tabasco Pizza Review
The lads were having a bad summer and the rain kept pouring down and making things pretty miserable, so Ted reckoned that to cheer us up we ought to have a hot and spicy pizza. The Hot and Spicy option from Domino’s seemed to fit the bill. To give it even more oomph we decided on the Tabasco and cheese stuffed crust which is a limited edition base. So we stocked up on Gaviscon and ordered our pizza. It arrived reasonably hot and looked nice and colourful with the array of peppers.

The Base was quite an expensive option but we liked the sound of it. The Tabasco flavoured cheese stuffing was pretty ace , not quite as plasticy as some stuffed crusts can be. The cheese inside was really pleasantly hot and we were well pleased with it, the base was itself was up to standard. Usual tomato sauce was fairly generous in covering. Standard mozzarella cheese was spot on.

The toppings were the ground beef forming the main ingredient and this was very nice and had a decent helping. Onions always go down well with any beef ingredients but we felt some more was needed.  green and red peppers add the taste that cant be topped, slighty hot and juicy.  jalapeño peppers added that usual kick. So was it hot and spicy? .. Yep especially with the Tabasco cheese crust but a portion of pepperoni might have really put it up there . I don’t think we would have this often but it really cheered us up. Now where’s that Gaviscon.

The Hot Dog Pizza from Papa John’s Review

Enjoy a taste of America with The Hot Dog pizza. A Heinz Tomato Ketchup base loaded with hot dog sausage, cheese, freshly sliced onions and topped with Heinz American style mustard.

Papa John’s Hot Dog Pizza Review
The Pizza Lads are noticing a tend for pizza outlets having pizzas named after other types of fast food, burgers, tandoori, kebabs and such like. So from our mates at Papa John’s comes the Hot Dog. Now The lads are fond of “good quality” hotdogs and not the cheap tinned ones from the local netto store. So we would be looking for high meat content hot dogs on our pizza.

We dialled the number of the local Papas with trembling hands (probably because the missuses hadn’t left for a shopping trip yet and we were afraid we might be heard) and ordered our Hot Dog Pizza. Delivery was fairly quick (well done Papas) and the wives had only just departed so that dodged a bullet. We settled down and had a look in the box. It looked a bit bland and it was a good job they had the mustard on top to give it some colour. It was obviously still nice and hot.

The base we had was the classic and was all good, We were a little concerned that the Heinz Tomato Ketchup sauce was going to quite sweet compared to usual red sauce and it was pretty much a bit overpowering really. The cheese was standard fare and well cooked. We were surprised that the sausage was much paler in colour than we expected and didn’t look the best quality. However don’t judge a book by it’s cover it was actually quite nice with a high meat content. And at least the saltiness of the sausage balanced out the sweetness of the ketchup well. A few onions were sprinkled about and were a welcome ingredient.

It was as we said earlier, topped with Heinz American style mustard which is pretty mild but once again sweet. There was far too much mustard for the lads and it was slightly off-putting. So did it work as a combo? We thought it was an interesting novelty idea and one that could be recreated in your kitchen by your own fair hands . But would you want to? Its saltiness of the sausage balancing out the sweetness well. was the sort of cooking type fun they would show on Kids TV during the summer holidays! We would say overall a 5 out of ten from the lads. Too much sauce!

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.

Pollo Forza Pizza Review, Pollo Forza Pizza from Pizza Express

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.

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.

The Greek Pizza from Papa John’s Review

This Mediterranean inspired combination of crumbled feta cheese, slices of red onion, fresh tomatoes, black olives and melting mozzarella with an oregano sprinkle is guaranteed to bring you a taste of summer sun.

Papa John’s Greek Pizza Review
The lads had decided that summer was round the corner once again and to celebrate this were looking for suitable pizza. Now it always sunny in Greece we reckon (i’m sure our Greek friends will tell us differently though). So having been keeping the knowledge of the Greek pizza in our pockets (not literally only in our minds ) we decided the unleash the lads on this combo.

The offering is pleasing to the eye with a good array of colour and if smelled okay. Tucking in we appreciated the classic crust base and basic cheese and tomato topping but offered nothing new. So onto the main show, the crumbled feta cheese was salty and crumbly so was just how it should be.

The black olives were from Spain’s famous Herrera Groves, now you may be wondering how we obtained such refined palates? well we read it on the website bumpf (sorry). Anyway the Olives were quite sour in our opinion but some people like them like that. Fresh tomatoes were chopped up and spread around which were decent.

The oregano sprinkle gives the pizza it’s Mediterranean taste and if it wasn’t for that we would have marked this one down. So to sum up a passable combo but compared to the others we felt it was poor value for money.

Picard Superior Margherita Pizza from Ocado

Picard Superior Margherita (Frozen) Pizza Review, Ocado Review

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.

Catalan Chicken & Chorizo Pizza from Domino’s

Catalan Chicken & Chorizo From Domino’s Review

Double pulled Catalan style chicken, chorizo, onions, green & red peppers topped with a drizzle of sour cream and paprika sauce

Domino’s Catalan Chicken & Chorizo Pizza Review
The lads are always on the lookout for new pizza combos and Domino’s are always coming up trumps on that score. Now Chicken and Chorizo is nothing new but of course this is doubled pulled? the last time that the lads had experienced a double pulled anything was when years ago we had been in nightclub (might have been a disco but hey were getting on now a bit) and we met our wives who were friends, ever since then we vowed to steer clear of double pulled anything as that story doesn’t have a happy outcome.

Anyway were losing the plot here so back to the pizza in question. It turned up on time and looked pretty good with a nice browned crust and appetizing looking drizzle of sour cream and paprika sauce. The dough was good and as it was a classic crust so not too thick either. No faults there. Tomato sauce was reasonable and the tomatoes are evident in the taste.

Standard mozza cheese was decent and was stringy and springy, just right. Toppings were the Double pulled Catalan style chicken which seemed a fairly standard offering, perhaps a bit herbier and finer than usual , nothing to complain about here. Chorizo was chunky and always lifts chicken to new levels, it was pretty spicy.

Onions and mixed peppers finished off the main toppings and added an intriguing contrast in taste and colour. And as we said earlier it was topped off with sour cream and paprika sauce and we felt this was the crowning glory and the paprika gave the whole offering a boost. So all in all we were happy with this new combo. It wont win any any awards but was a solid 7 out of ten from the lads.

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.

Tuna & Sweetcorn Flat Bread Pizza from Pizza Hut

Tuna & Sweetcorn Flat Bread Pizza Review from Pizza Hut

Tuna & Sweetcorn Flat Bread Pizza from Pizza Hut Review

Tomato sauce, mozzarella, tuna, red onion, sweetcorn, a ranch and rocket on our light Flat bread base.

Pizza Hut Tuna & Sweetcorn Flat Bread Pizza Review
The lads were strapped for cash as normal, but had managed to hide enough money away from the wives for a pizza treat. So sneaking off when they busy we legged it down to the nearest pizza hut.

We scanned the menu and realised that we had never reviewed a flat bread style pizza, so we decided to remedy this situation. Now an authentic flat bread pizza should not really have sauce on in our opinion but this did so in our opinion it just a oval shaped pizza. In reality this base has a slightly crunchier bite we felt, but we are getting ahead of ourselves. So we ordered the tuna and sweetcorn one.

The flat bread duly turned up and was reasonably hot, the appearance was a bit messy with rocket leafs and ranch sauce strewn across the top. So onto the review, the base was fairly thin and as we said a bit crunchy but was at least a nice variation on the usual. The tomato sauce was strong and tasty. The mozzi cheese was a bit sparse but tasty enough.

The toppings were a fairly standard combination of Tuna which was fresh from tin we thought but OK for all that and sweetcorn (dare we say it might have been tinned?). It was brought to life by the red onion a bit. As we said before rocket leafs and ranch sauce adorned the top which was at least a diversion from the norm. So all in all a disappointing effort , something a student could knock up similar at home for a Thursday quick tea maybe.

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.

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.

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?
