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

Pizza Lads Review…

A few cold takeaway Pizza’s led us to this fantastic Pizza Bag. It’s magic. The Pizza’s are just as hot as when it arrived on the counter. Very impressive and worth every penny as far as The Pizza Lads are concerned. Also the bag keeps the Pizza smell to a minimum, so no more garlic smelling car in the morning! Everyone Happy….

Review
When The Pizza Lads are not review Pizza’s from restaurants we occasionally buy our own or make our own depending on the time we have. We Tried the Pizza Pan Baking Tray and have to say they are great. They are a good quality Pizza Pan (or baking tray) which will last you for years and years if you look after them. The Pizza Lads love the quality of the non-stick surface and they are perfect for either frozen or homemade Pizza’s. The baking trays are an extra 1 inch in size to most Pizza baking trays, which seems to suit the supermarket fresh pizza sizes too. The Pizza Lads baked our homemade pizza’s on them and we have used the full size of the trays and agreed the heat transfer was much better than the flat sheet ones we’ve used before.

A big thumbs up from The Pizza Lads!

The Push for Healthier Eating at Papa John’s

The Push for Healthier Eating at Papa John’s

The Push for Healthier Eating at Papa John’sPapa Johns has been hard at work pushing for healthier ingredients in its pizzas and continues to emphasise its commitment to superior food quality. It has recently, revamped its advertising campaigns, both traditional and digital to more effectively communicate with its customers.

Papa John’s is one of a number of global fast-food chains in the UK to push for healthier ingredients and, in the process, to remove artificial ingredients and additives. These actions are making it easier for consumers who are more health-conscious, particularly on their consumption of artificial ingredients, sodium, and fats including cholesterol.

The pizza chain’s push for healthier pizzas ramped up in June when it released its Greek Pizza, a pizza that is filled with more vegetables as well as a lower fat and sodium content. Customers have expressed their satisfaction which has further encouraged the chain to introduce more healthy fare.

Now, Papa John’s Lighter Choices Menu boasts a selection of choices including Chicken and veggie, Mediterranean Veggie, and Grilled Chicken & Canadian Bacon. According to the chain’s Chief Marketing Officer, Bob Kraut, these choices do not contain processed, low calorie ingredients.

The replacement of artificial ingredients with natural and organic ones is a costly endeavour. This is because the healthier ingredients cost more than their artificial counterparts, but Papa John’s commitment to superior quality has made it possible.

As a customer, you still have the responsibility to look out for your own intake, including calories, consumption of fats, sodium, and artificial ingredients. Papa John’s may have introduced healthier Lighter Choices, but you will still find more than a few indulgent ones as well. You must make deliberate choices when ordering and eating your pizza, especially when you are a regular patron.

A few tips include:

  • Order the smaller pies since they have smaller slices and, therefore, fewer calories.
  • Share your pizza with a friend to prevent overindulging
  • Select a pizza with more vegetables than meats
  • Pick a pie with red sauce as opposed to creamy or BBQ

At the end of the day, you have the final responsibility for your health; you can still enjoy a pizza, but be conscious about what you eat with each visit.
