This pizza is well packaged in a nice green colour which makes this slightly appealing in that it is adequately sized. There is also a nice authentic appearance in terms of a mainstream pizza brand. The pizza, in takeaway terms is of a medium size. In terms of value for money this pizza scores well. In terms of appearance before cooking the pizza looked fairly standard. During cooking time took around 12 minutes to fully cook which was faster than expected.
In comparison to products from Pizza Express in stores the packaging of the Goodfellas version is more pizza extroverted. The price of £4 for 2 pizzas is certainly good value for money in so far as most other branded pizzas are more expensive and are not so cheap. Pizza Express pizza's by comparison do have a freshly baked hand made pizza where as this is a stone baked pizza. I was pleased that the pizza was well presented and it was easy to cut the pizza up into slices with a set of kitchen scissors.
I was slightly pleased also with the consistency of the pizza. In a sense this pizza had generous amounts of tomatoe, cheese and pepperoni. The pepperoni was also good sized and there were around 12 slices of pepperoni which added some variety in terms of eating this pizza, though there was a lack of flavour and smell. I had a good feeling towards the look and appearance of the pizza before and after cooking this, though I was let down by the taste. Serving the pizza is easy as there was no stickiness at the bottom of the pan during cooking and the pizza itself was cooked well with no problems or any inconsistency. I served the pizza with a nice helping of rocket salad and was pleased overall with the eating process.
Rating 3.2 out of 5. I have found this pizza extremely well presented and easy to cook. Though from a tasting perspective I found this pizza a bit bland and quite ordinary. There was no definitive taste of pepperoni, the dough base seemed good to look at, though there was no taste to it. The overall eating felt a little heavy after the product had been consumed which is probably down to the doughy crispy base. It is a shame there is not much smell. I would certainly eat this product again though I would like there to be a more distinctive taste before I become a regular buyer of Goodfella's pizza food products. I was pleased that there was no artificial flavourings and ingredients with this pizza. Though this was let down by the lack of naturally spicy flavours or any distinctive tones. There was also a lack of after taste which also let down the pizza to some extent.
The product did have a story at the back of the product packaging which told about a history into pizza, though I am suprised that the flavour aspect of consumption has been slightly left out. The pizza certainly is a great looking and well presented product and is really nice and crispy overall though without the flavour hence deserves a slightly better than average rating.
