£2 should be the standard price for these. Total rip-off at £4 a pizza for what you get.

I was considering trying these out, but I have decided not to, since you mentioned they are quite crap in terms of price and quality. I just wanted to ask if there are any other good quality pizzas which can be bought as such, either frozen ones or the fresh ready-made types.

Cheers xD

Just in case you are still unsure, they are rank. Not worth the money at all. Only bonus is that when you cook it yourself instead of buying one from their resturants, you have the option of not burning it, which is pretty novel for a Pizza Express pizza lol.

i think they are nice but only buy Margherita ones

They're not bad but really quite small! If you have a waitrose near you they have their fresh pizzas on offer for £2.88 at the moment and they really are very good in my opinion, and quite a range of interesting toppings.

Nice. Off to get some. Never seen La Reine in my local store though.

Update: finally got a La Reine. All types available.

Best ready-to-cook pizza IMO is Dr Oetker, usually bought frozen and cheaper than £2 per pizza (I've seen them in Lidl for £1 each at times).

+1. Rather excellent these are. American Hot was alright, although it's been a while. A million times better than the horrid Chicago Town and their ilk. Big fan of the Asda fresh ones though ... their hot and spicy one is rather epic.

I personally don't like how it tastes.

For those of you with Costco cards, they were doing these 2 for 10" ones for £4. Only had the Margherita and I think American variety.

Nope...The Pizza Express ones are pretty healthy compared with others. Not that I would know about this sort of thing (cough cough), but a Sloppy Giuseppe is 15 WW Points. WW's own pizzas (mmmm, cardboard base and plastic cheese) is 11 points. Most frozen / shop bought pizzas are around the 25 points mark.

The best ones by far in my opinion are both the Waitrose ones (I had pepperoni and it was excellent) and the create your own ones at ASDA.

I like these pizzas and still a lot cheaper than a takeaway.

However if you have a bread maker then pizzas are ridiculously easy to make and 2 cheesy 12" Margheritas cost me under £1

Apparently Dominos are on a 900% mark up. At least I would say.

If you want to save money buy a breadmaker - don't need to spend more than £30 and a slow cooker. Make your own bread - probably costs about 40p for a 2lb decent white loaf, pizza bases and your own soups etc in slow cooker.

HTH

Frozen: Dr Oetker 'Casa di Mama' range

Fresh: Waitrose


both way better than Pizza Express IMO

they're not that good but the price isn't bad. if I have to get pizzas from sainsbury's I'd much rather get the 14" sainsbury's ones.

Fitness is not the same as health. So, if as a result of your running, you can compete in a half marathon, but develop knee problems, are you considered to be healthy?

Not in my book.

Anyway, Pizza Express pizzas are nice, but a bit small.

Pedantic puss is pedantic. And yeah, if you develop knee problems but have the cardio vascular ability to run half a marathon then yes, you are healthier than someone with the sturdiest knees in the world supporting an upper body carrying 6 stone of frozen pizza's.

..are you fat? That isn't meant as offensive, that just seems like an incredible excuse for not running right there.

Any fitness professional will tell you that if your knees BEGIN to hurt whilst running you can simply stop running and start cycling or swimming well before your knees are damaged beyond the point of being able to walk.

One 10km run isn't going to cripple you, is it?

And besides, are you therefore telling me that it is impossible for someone who is wheel chair bound to be considered "Healthy"? I don't know why I posed that as a question, because that is precisely what you are implying. Which is absurd.

For your point about people in wheelchairs being considered healthy, I'm not sure I understand what you're trying to say. If I could walk properly and as a result of extreme exercise my knees deteriorated to the point where I couldn't walk, I wouldn't consider myself to be healthier than previously. So I don't see the absurdity in my point, please enlighten me.

Obviously, a person that's crippled because of an accident etc can still be considered healthy.

And no, I'm not fat, nor do I condone excessive eating due to the multiple health problems they cause.

And I exercise too, I just think that there's a huge obsession with fitness these days that's probably damaging to health. Health isn't just the functioning of your heart, it also includes joints etc, which runners conveniently forget.

The problem here is that you are the one that started talking about being able to walk. If you find an example of a sports-person who can no longer walk because they ran too much I can guarantee I can quadruple the amount of examples of people whose mobility is impaired as a result of NOT exercising enough.

You were the one who started talking about problems that COULD develop from exercise. What was your point? I COULD choose to not run, have weaker legs as a result that prevent me from jumping out of the way of a car or run away from an axe wielding maniac. Of course, my examples are unlikely and based purely on misfortune and random chance, JUST as your example was. My point is that YOUR point was utterly moot.

To summarise, some guy quite rightly said "You should try and exercise if you eat these pizzas" and you had a problem with it which you justified with the random chance possibility of "developing bad knees".

As for the wheelchair thing, I'll answer your question with a question: So, according to you, if someone is in a wheelchair as a result of being born paralysed from the waist down they can still be considered "Healthy" but if someone is in a wheelchair as a result of "running too much" they could not be considered "Healthy"?

What's the difference? Why are you talking about random possible events that might occur from staying fit and healthy? What are you talking about in general?

Not tried the froozen ones but I absolutely love the restaurant. Go there all the time.

The Calabrese PIzza is the single nicest pizza ever, so spicey but full of flavour and so many different unique toppings.

Imagine if a friend of yours was an unhealthy, fat person, who suddenly decided to change his life around. Let's say he developed an obsession with extreme fitness an as a result of it, developed knee problems that prevent him from walking. Would you say, "Luke used to be a fat, unhealthy person, but now he's healthy?". I wouldn't.

The "some guy" that you're referring to said that you should run 10km if you eat these pizzas, and I disagreed. If they had said "you should try and exercise" if you eat these pizzas, I'd have agreed.

My disagreement was about the running part of it. Please understand.

Nice tweed. Just imagine doggy on that. You wouldn't get past the bed sores on the way in.

Being a fat so and so can be a psychological illness. However once you reach 20 stone aren't you fat enough to realise that you are a blob?

How on earth do you get to 25, 30, 40 stone?

By eating 6000+ calories a day I guess!

Take a look at Darren Jones who enjoys 42 litres of Diet Coke a week.

No, I would say he was healthy. IF HE was healthy and had a low resting heart rate. I'd be sure to add that his knees were totally buggered though!

I do understand. Completely. I understand that you took the most unlikely example of a fat guy developing an exercise obsession and a simultaneous, god like pain tolerance threshold that would put him in a position to absolutely destroy his knees.

You made it sound like running 10km would destroy any human beings knees and you know you did. Quite simply put, this is NOT the case. I mean, Christ on a bike. Do people need to put health warning disclaimers on their HUKD comments to account for people like you or something?

As I said before, pedantic!
