Diavola Forte Pizza from Bella Italia Review

Spicy ’nduja sausage, salami, chicken, red onion, roasted peppers and green chilli on a fiery tomato sauce with mozzarella and cooling mascarpone cheese.

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 from Ask Italian

Slow Cooked Lamb Pizza Review, Slow Cooked Lamb Pizza Ask Italian

Slow Cooked Lamb Pizza from Ask Italian Review

Tender lamb shoulder, fontal cheese, roasted peppers, spinach, balsamic red onions onions and pine nuts.

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

Feta Cheese & Caramelised Onion Pizza from Waitrose Review

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.

Extra Special Hand Stretched Smoked Ham, Mushroom & Mascarpone Pizza from ASDA Review

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.

A big Asda thumbs up from The Pizza Lads

Tops Club Pizza from Tops Pizza Review

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.

Meatball Feast Calzone from Frankie & Benny’s

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 from Frankie & Benny’s Review

Slices of tender chicken, mozzarella, chives and BBQ sauce

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.

A beautiful Ham & Pineapple pizza from Domino’s Pizza

Domino’s Ham & Pineapple Pizza Review
The lads realised that we hadn’t had a Domino’s Pizza for a while, and we do like our Domino’s. The missuses were off out to the Mall to waste some more of our dough. They gave us a stern lecture before they left about not eating any Pizzas today.

We tend never to listen, so dug out the latest menu. Having had a look they don’t seem to do any new combo offerings at the moment, so we thought we would fall back on an old favourite of Ham & Pineapple. Now some peeps say Pineapple doesn’t belong on a pizza but not us, and believe us when we say we have had a lot odder things in the past. We chose the classic crust which we find gives us the slightly crunchy crust in a sort sourdough way and it is not too thin or too thick.

The usual Tomato sauce was evenly spread and has a good rich taste. The Mozzarella was nicely browned and lovely and stringy. The Ham pieces had a almost smokey taste and had browned at the edges adding to pleasing overall look. The Pineapple was fresh tasting and had plenty of bite. So we were well pleased with this classic offering. Now all we have to do is hide the evidence from our wives and start spraying air freshener around and eating mints.

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.

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

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.

Spicy Chicken Burger Pizza from Papa John’s Review

It begins with a tongue tingling combo of our sweet Californian Tomato sauce and hot Buffalo sauce. Above that you’ll find crispy Piri Piri Chicken poppers along with fresh Red Peppers and sliced Red Onion. Lastly, a final flourish of Green Serenade Chillies for an extra wave of aromatic heat for that added kick.

Papa John’s Spicy Chicken Burger Pizza Review
The Missuses were given us poor Pizza lads a hard time over the amount of Pizzas we were consuming and said we would end up looking like one. We pleaded our case that we had to eat Pizzas so all our followers know what to go for! But the law was laid down and we were told no more Pizzas in the next few days, that was it and they were off for good and “ain’t never coming back”.

Oh man, now we are not good liars, so we really felt like we were knackered. So off we went in a right huff, but passing the local PJ’s, (Papa John’s) we noticed a sign for a Spicy Chicken Burger! Hang on a minute are they branching out into Macd’s territory? Closer inspection revealed it was a Pizza, so Ted said “well we can Green Serenade Chillies Green Serenade Chilliessay in all honesty we had a burger”, so only a white lie if questioned by the wives! That was good enough for us…

So anyway were losing the plot here, onto the pizza review. We decided upon the standard base which was as usual up to par and crispy round the edges. The toppings seemed a bit sparse though to look at. The sweet Californian Tomato sauce and hot Buffalo sauce was an inspired mixture and really sets the taste buds going.

Cheese was all over and melty thick. The crispy Piri Piri Chicken poppers were a bit unusual and Bill wasn’t keen on the crispiness, but they had a real kicking taste. It was rounded off with fresh Red Peppers and sliced Red Onion. But the explosion of heat came from the Green Serenade Chillies. So a good and different combo though were not too sure about the Burger name on it. Oh well, when we got back and faced the third degree we said we had had a burger and brownie points all round for the lads.

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!

Stonebaked Pepperoni Pizza from Sainsbury’s Review

A 10 inch hand stretched stonebaked Pizza base made with Extra Virgin Olive oil, topped with Tomato and Basil sauce, Mozzarella and Cheddar Cheeses, sliced Pepperoni and confit Onion

The Stonebaked Pepperoni Pizza Review

The lads had been told to cut back on Pizza spending by the Missuses. We said, well how can we produce the reviews that the public demand, if we don’t try them? Seeing our distress they agreed that we could economise a bit and eat supermarket ones for a few weeks. So dodging the bullet once again we trooped off to Sainsbury’s to see the offerings. Now we are not superkeen on frozen Pizzas so we opted for a chilled one. Lots of choice was on offer but Bill felt a bit Pepperoniy so we grabbed one and set off home again.

The Pizza looks good with big slices of Pepperoni and lots of Onions. Starting with the stonebaked base we felt it was a bit soggy, the copious amount of Onions and grease seemed to have seeped into the base. The taste wasn’t horrendous but to be honest it sucked overall.

The Tomato sauce had a nice hint of Basil and was acceptable, the cheese was OK, but some more would have been nice. The pepperoni was very greasy we reckoned and not the best tasting, and it was drowned in sweet soggy Onions which left an after taste.

So not a great example of a Sainsbury’s Pizza as we had had others in the past which had rivalled restaurant offerings. Sainsbury’s we suggest dropping this one (in the bin)

Pizza Hut The BBQ Americano Pizza Review
The lads had had a meeting and decided to redouble the efforts they are putting into bringing you the best pizza reviews on the interweb.

The summer was fading fast now and Christmas is round the corner and it was touch and go if our marriages would last that long. At the meeting it was decided that our mission was to review every Pizza available from every Pizza chain and supermarket in the UK. Wow was it possible, would we die before the end? Anyway enough waffle, we scouted a few menus to discover Pizzas we hadn’t reviewed yet. The first one Bill saw was the Pizza Hut – BBQ AMERICANO.

Off we went and settled down for the feast to follow. The base we chose was the ALL AMERICAN THIN which I said would go well with AMERICANO inspired toppings. It says on the menu that they have been hand stretching these since 1958! and to be honest we wondered if this was the original one they had started with. It was far too tough for our delicate palate. We suspected it had been cooked a little too much. So a lot of ground to be made up after this bad start. Happily things got a little better from there on.

The sauce was the Smoky BBQ which was tasty but we felt that too much had been drizzled over the top so it became a bit overpowering. It was passable. The Chicken was nice and was a lovely colour (or color should we say as we are all Americanised now) and it was succulent and fresh . What else, the Bacon was reasonable if a little thin on the ground and all rounded off with Sweetcorn, which is not our favourite topping. All in all we didn’t feel this Pizza hit the mark. So howdy partnering and yee-hawing we made are way.
