Pepperoni Pizza

I am a bit tired of cooking today, so I decided to just pick something up from Sainsbury's to pop into the oven or microwave. Something compelled me however to do a mini-post on the Basics Pepperoni Pizza that you can find in the fresh pizza counter at Sainsbury's.

These have been around for about a year or so now, but I've never really thought of reviewing this; when it was first introduced, the amount of pepperoni and cheese was measly, at best. It appears that things have gotten slightly better now, but still not enough to justify the £1.59 price tag. For £2.30 I can buy the 12" Basics pizza for £1 and Basics pepperoni for £1.29, and last for two meals.

It seems however that today's Basics pizzas were reduced to clear, so I happily bought one, dressed it up with what remained of my Basics Brie and some Basics herb mix, and popped the lot into the oven.

The pizza was left a little too long in the oven unfortunately, which would explain why it looks so dark in the picture. The pepperoni tastes exactly like the Basics Pepperoni you would find at the Deli meat aisle, and the cheese is somewhat like the Basics Grated Hard Cheese mentioned elsewhere in this blog. The base was alright, reminding me of the base found in deep pan frozen pizzas, without the thickness. Overall, not unpleasant to eat, but not value-for-money unless marked down for clearance.
