Don't forget to take the polystyrene base off before putting it in the oven. Major let down when you're really hungry and you end up with a polystyrene flavoured pizza.


Surely alcohol can be the only excuse for this stupidity?
The base dough is fresh, not frozen for a start. An you drizzle a. Little olive oil. Comes out almost as good as a real pizza express.

To be clear it's not as good as a totally freshly baked pizza... But closer than anything else in the shops..

Also be careful.. They go from cooked (8mins) to burnt within 2minites.. Don't ruin your dinner...!

Best served with tomato and basil and possibly red onion salad. (an avacado works really good too if you like them.. I get morrisons wonky ones.. Cheap!)

you're not really paying for the name as there not usually any dearer than most other pizzas as nearly always on offer. as yes, they are better than most.
The base on the large ones have been changed and are now poor. The base on the regular sized ones is still thin, so has a similar consistency to the restaurants. They changed the base on the large ones to much thicker, bread-like dough, I assume to better support the toppings on the heavier pizzas (e.g Sloppy Giuseppe), and now they're hard, stodgy work, like eating cheap pizza bases.

I still enjoy the regular sized ones, but every time I eat one of the larger ones I'm disappointed.

Reasonable price for pizza express fresh pizzas but not as tasty as some Aldi frozen ones...

lmao
Are their any pages that compare or review foods from different shops? Always wondered whether some things are worth trying and wish shops would do taster sessions as I hate wasting money on food no one in house will eat once its been opened and tested.
3% off! What a deal!!! LOL.
Would a pizza stone improve these further?

I usually put these in the oven at gas mark 9, as I think it is the best way to get some airyness into the dough along with a bit of colour, but even then the centre can be a little too doughy for my liking.

With pre-made pizzas I always find frozen bases to be better. There's not really anything but snobbery determining that a frozen base will be worse than a 'fresh' one: particularly when you consider that these vacuum packed 'fresh' pizzas will have been sat around for ages, where a frozen one was frozen within minutes of manufacture. I tried the frozen range of Pizza Express from Iceland a while back and felt they were far closer to a proper Pizza Express than these. Hard to complain at £2.90 though, as they're all nice enough.

I have an Uuni pizza oven with a gas attachment for days when I want to light it quickly...but I still like a quick ready-made now and again.

Personally I rate Aldi's frozen 'American' style stuffed (junk food) and stonebake (fresh) variety above these though.

A frozen dough will never become aerated in the way a fresh dough will and will be stodgier because of it.

That's completely untrue. Both doughs will have been proved, and frozen ones are often made using raw dough, which will have a second rise in the oven. A chilled pizza is already cooked and is just being reheated. They often taste staler than a frozen pizza.
Edited by: "TechnoDonkey" 13th May
No, it's science, the dough will still be half wet by the time the toppings are burnt. Not the case with fresh dough.

I'm sure freezing changes the structure of the dough in a similar way to freezing an item with a lot of water, then defrosting it, leaves you with something with a completely different texture (i.e mushy).
Edited by: "whats_the_deal" 13th May
I think 'deals' on junk food and sweets should be banned, it isn't really a deal if its just nasty stodge.
To an extent, I agree, but do you never eat pizza? These pizzas are probably the best on the market for home cooking (give the gluten free base version a swerve though, absolutely repellent).

You never fancy something quick and easy...This has got to be better than something similar from the local takeaway.
Edited by: "whats_the_deal" 13th May
Here's a top tip....buy some ham and pineapple separately and put it on this margherita and you have a ham and pineapple pizza on offer.
Ok deal, but £6 is the normal overprice from Tesco. Pretty sure Morrison's normal price is £4 and they have at least one on offer at £3 at the moment.
These a quite nice, I always add my own extra mozzarella and whatever parma ham/chorizo/pepperoni I've got in the fridge, they tend to be abit stingy
Better than Aldi 89p ones eh
This is not a pizza but cardboard
They used to be good a few years ago but are now nothing like the pizzas they serve instore now are little different to cheap supermarket pizza
I think Tesco own brand are better.
