Great British BBQ Pizza from Papa John’s Review

Make it a British summer to savour with this BBQ sensation, which is first loaded with our signature BBQ sauce, then topped with prime cuts of slow cooked, marinated BBQ beef, which is torn into rustic shreds and mixed with a sweet & sticky Old Kentucky whiskey glaze, juicy chargrilled chicken, spicy beef, pork sausage & onions.

Papa John’s Great British BBQ Pizza Review
The lads and the missuses were enjoying the lovely summer weather, but Bills wife decided that the BBQ had to fired up so that they could get out of cooking no doubt. Anyway me and Bill were not too happy about this. All the work and waiting about and expense of the burgers and stuff. So we remembered that Papa John’s were offering a new Great British BBQ Pizza. To all round groans from the wives they eventually gave in so we headed own to Papas John’s.

The Base we choose was the thin crust XXL so enough for all (especially us). The base is decent, not too crusty though a bit floppy to the size (we know the feeling !).

A good coating of BBQ sauce which we prefer to tomato on meaty offerings. It was fairly sweet but tangy, so all good. The pulled beef was indeed tender as promised and mixed with a sweet & sticky Old Kentucky whiskey glaze, which was really good. The whiskey taste wasn’t strong but gave the beef a deep luxurious flavour. The Chicken was moist and and full of flavour. Spicy beef was something we wouldn’t have added as it didn’t add much to the overall taste.

Finally the pork sausage & onions gave a nice contrast to the pizza and the onions seemed to take away a bit of the sweetness. So all very nice and work free for us. Was it better than a real BBQ? We thought it was a good try, however the wives were not as pleased, but hey they didn’t eat much, so all the more for us! Winner Winner BBQ dinner.

A big thumbs up from The Pizza Lads….

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…

Epic Pepperoni Pizza from Pizza Hut

Epic Pepperoni Pizza from Pizza Hut Review

Epic Pepperoni Pizza from Pizza Hut Review

Discover Pizza that’s a long way away from the same-old, same-old. We’ve taken our famous favourites, and remastered them with a premium flavour boost. Triple Cheese, Pepperoni & Chorizo.

Pizza Hut The Epic Pepperoni Pizza Review
It’s hot hot hot, the summer grinds on and tempers were frayed. The lads and the missuses were fighting like cats and dogs all the time. Ted was Googling to find out how dudes in hot countries kept cool and it seems they eat hot spicy food, we mentioned this to the wives and they virtually threw us out the door to “cool down” at the local Pizza Hut. Yo-Hoo, we had permission to indulge ourselves.

So off we went to scan the menu, Ted hadn’t had much Pepperoni lately and we agreed that the Epic Pepperoni Pizza was going to fit the bill. Duly served up fresh we opted for the pan base with is deep with crispy edges and a fluffy insides. Tomato sauce check. Triple Cheese which are Mozzarella, Monterey Jack and Red Leicester, this is a good combination and we particularly like the Monterey Jack which adds an indulgent twist.

The pepperoni and Chorizo gave us the spice and heat we needed to “cool down”. The Chorizo had a great texture as well, so a great traditional combo with a twist to lift it out from the ordinary and it looked great to be honest. Perhaps we should have gone for a more spicy option really but it was just enough. Right, back home for more fun and games!

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…

BBQ Hog Roast Pizza from Papa John’s

BBQ Hog Roast Pizza from Papa John's BBQ Hog Roast review

BBQ Hog Roast Pizza from Papa John’s Review

Deliciously mouth-watering, spit roast style pork shoulder, seasoned with thyme & black pepper with a generous helping of onions and our signature cheese on a unique apple sauce base for a traditional hog roast style experience.

Papa John’s BBQ Hog Roast Pizza Review
Summer is most defiantly here and the lads were on the road for the Yearly Caravan break in Skegness with the missuses and kids. It is truly a time to remember normally, Wailing kids, moaning wives and general misery for us packed into a sardine can size space with toe stubbing obstacles everywhere.

However the benefits are that nobody wants to cook so the wives are quite happy to indulge us in our passion for pizza . The local Papa Johns was near the campsite, so off we went and as usual its our mission to test out the taste combos on offer. Today’s new pizza was the rather great sounding BBQ Hog Roast.

We opted for the thin crust base as the kids prefer it. The ingredients are not too fussy which we like. Cheese as always was lovely and onions go down well, but the star of the show is the Hog Roast pork. Can they pull off that fresh roasted taste? The answer is just about… It was pretty tender and not too chewy with a rich indulgent taste complimented by the thyme and pepper. But the apple sauce base was perhaps a little too sweet for our taste and somehow the cheese and apple mix seemed odd. But it was as a whole a decent combo and a really quite good overall experience. The kids loved it and the wives were quiet so we were on cloud nine. A summer winner!

The Meatfielder Pizza from Domino’s

The Meatfielder Pizza from Domino's

The Meatfielder Pizza from Domino’s Review

The Pizza Lads love a new pizza combo and a new meaty pizza always floats our boat.

Domino’s Meatfielder Pizza Review
Now Domino’s have no shortage of meat eater etc type combos. Mighty Meaty, Meat Lovers, Meateor and Meatilicious. So what makes this one different. In our opinion not too much but we reckon it’s because it’s all porky type meats and no veggie filler. All good by us, so on to taste test and after a few weeks watching Wimbledon Tennis and world cup football we were looking quite buff.

Even our wives started to notice us, which isn’t all a good thing and a return to our slobby normal selves should solve that dilemma. Now the toppings are Ham, Pepperoni, Chorizo, Smoked Bacon and Pork Meatballs. Nothing extraordinary really but as a whole we were quite taken with it. The  Pepperoni and Chorizo added some real zing to to the proceedings, Ham faded into the background but the texture and look benefited greatly. Meatballs were soft and tasty and the smoky taste of the bacon was a nice counterpoint.

On the usual cheese and tomato base. All good in our opinion and a few more of these and the pounds will soon pile on!

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

BBQ Cheeseburger Pizza from Papa John’s

BBQ Cheeseburger Pizza from Papa John's, BBQ Cheeseburger Pizza Review

BBQ Cheeseburger Pizza from Papa John’s Review

Loaded first, is a generous dollop of our signature BBQ sauce. Then a double helping of spicy beef, pickles, sliced tomatoes, onions and cheese, all on a fresh dough base. It’s the mouth-watering taste of a cheeseburger in every bite!

Papa John’s BBQ Cheeseburger Pizza Review
The lads were passing the local Papa John’s after the missuses had sent us out with a shopping list to pick up some healthy option tasteless food from the supermarket, and Ted noticed the new pizza, the BBQ Cheeseburger.

Wow that’s a real guys pizza, no poncy spinach and pan fried shallot rubbish. So sacking off the shopping chore we went we and ordered one. We were on cloud nine not even caring about what would happen when we didn’t get back with the poncy food they wanted.

Now we would have preferred some chopped up beef patties of the Maccy D variety, but this was good. All the ingredients of a burger on a pizza. We thought that tomato sauce base might have been better which of course you could have, but we went with the BBQ sauce.

To be honest we could go though the all the ingredients and say this, that and the could have been better but the combination speaks for itself! And it all worked fantastically. Though in true Maccy D style, Bill picked his pickles out and dumped them on the side.

The Pizza Lads say – A thumbs up and a real winner!

We forgot the shopping and we were not popular when we went home. And we don’t care!

Philly Cheese Steak Pizza from Pizza Hut

Philly Cheese Steak Pizza from Pizza Hut Review

Shaved steak, caramelised onions, green peppers & triple Cheese blend on a creamy base.

Pizza Hut Philly Cheese Steak Pizza Review
The lads are always on the lookout for a new pizza and when we scoped the Philly Cheese Steak at our local Pizza Hut we were just going to have to try one. We had a pan base which was crispy around the edges and lovely and soft inside, just how we like it.

The crowning ingredient is the Steak and we were happy with it, but it could have been a little less chewy, however the flavour was spot on. We loved the caramelised onions which set off the tastebuds.

The Green Peppers and the triple Cheese were all good and when put together tasted very indulgent. Creamy base was different and we thought it got a bit lost with all the fantastic flavours going on.

So a thumbs up for this pizza from The Pizza Lads.

Customer Review from Mr Singh

Here is an honest, simple review of my experience with the Philly Cheese Steak Pizza, Deep Crust from Pizza Hut.

I’m a big fan of steak, has to be rare or medium rare at least. Additions must include salt and pepper seasoning with vinegar’s and hot mustard and the cuts have to he premium or thick at least. I ordered mine pizza up north, near Manchester and the results were as follows:

I had my socks knocked off. The pizza was light, thick, crispy and flavoursome. The Steak was thick,  juicy, moist, tender and beefy.  The onion, Philadelphia cheese and tomatoes were a combination from heaven.

I’ve never had anything like this outside of New York / Brooklyn.
Well done Pizza Hut!

Classic Caspian Pizza from MOD Pizza

Classic Caspian Pizza from MOD Pizza Classic Caspian Pizza Review

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….

All The Meats Pizza from Papa John’s

All The Meats Pizza from Papa John's Pizza Review

All The Meats Pizza from Papa John’s Review

All the Meats™ Papa John’s fans have voted this their all time number one pizza. Is it the piquant Pepperoni, succulent Sausage or crispy Bacon that we stack on this super meaty pizza that makes it so popular? Or is it the sizzling spicy Beef, chunky Ham and fresh Mozzarella Cheese? Let your taste buds decide.

Papa John’s All The Meats Pizza Review
The lads were scanning the Papa John’s menu and noticed that the All The Meats pizza was voted number one by “fans”. Well we thought we have never tried one for some reason and decided to put this to rights straight away.

Slipping out while the wives were watching some soap or other on the Gogglebox, we were there in no time. So we ordered a deep crust base after seeing what was for tea before we left home and tucked in.

It was meaty for sure and Ted thought the combination of pork and beef was a bit not to his taste. However he was soon a convert and to be fair it’s definitely the pork toppings that prevail. The Sausage and Bacon were fantastic, but felt the Ham was a bit overpowered by the spicy Beef and Pepperoni. Having said that it was a good one. We have to say not our favourite but a good 8/10 from us.

A thumbs up from The Pizza Lads

Lucy Sunshine Pizza MOD Pizzas Pizza review

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)
