This kind of cereal was my favorite one as a kid.
I still enjoy it but after tasting american cereal it’s not the same any more.
However I’ve tasted several brands and I can tell you that this is not the best one.. it lacks of something: freshness? crunchiness? general chocolate taste? :/
It still a good product though.. 3 stars! Plus I love the little frog on the box 😀

  • 5 FACTORS OF AWESOMESAUCE PIZZA:

1) Baking and Appearance: 4/10
Honestly this pizza looks super fake and it’s not appetizing at all.
The baking instructions are correct though.

2017-08-18 20.29.40

2) Dough: 5/10
It’s very thin in the center and on the border.
In the box they write that this pizza dough is fluffier than the others and indeed it is; however I didn’t enjoy it because it seems kinda undercooked in the middle and weirdly crunchy on the outside :/

2017-08-18 20.29.26

3) Toppings: 5/10
The ingredients are not original and even though I appreciate the abundance of cheese I can tell you that its quality here is definitely super bad: it’s tasteless.
Plus I didn’t enjoy those basil/oregano little pieces, they taste super weird on a margherita :/

2017-08-18 20.29.00

3) Value: 7/10
I paid this pizza 2,39€ and it was discounted!!!
I don’t think I would pay more than this price for this frozen pizza because it’s small and its quality is very questionable.

5) Side Effects: 4/10
I felt very very thirsty and also very bloated all night long 😦

  • OVERALL RATING:  5/10 (worst frozen margherita ever? -.-)
  • TV SHOW SUGGESTION: Atypical

148. BRACI & GRANI – Braci E Grani (11,5€)

Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart white

  • DESCRIPTION: Buffalo mozzarella cheese, tomato sauce, sliced fillet of beef, arugula, pachino tomatoes, smoked salt
  • COUNTRY: Italy
  • RESTAURANT ADDRESS: Angolo Via Venezia, Lungomare Spalato, 64021 Giulianova (TE)
  • RESTAURANT WEBSITE: Facebook page
  • 5 FACTORS OF AWESOMESAUCE PIZZA:

1) Dough: 9/10
The dough is thin both in the middle and on the borders.
It’s crunchy but not dry and super light.
I really enjoyed this kind of dough.

2017-08-12 21.34.41

2) Toppings: 10/10
The toppings are very original here, I love it.
Their strong suit is grill so this beef pizza is their pizza of the house: it tastes delicious.
I mean.. I don’t enjoy meat so much but this sliced fillet was tender and super tasty. Plus I loved their idea of making a hole in the middle to put the meat because it looks cool and also because you can customize every slice of your pizza as you want!!
The other ingredients are very simple but also very good.
I can’t remember any “smoked salt” but it’s ok because I don’t like very salty pizzas…
The quality and the quantity of the ingredients is perfect in my opinion and they creat a very unique mix of toppings.

3) Value: 9/10
The real value of the pizza is 10 € but they added 1,5€ as service fee.
I think it’s a good deal since there are also cheaper option in this restaurant and this pizza is worth 10 € for sure.

4) Service: 8/10
This place is always very crowded but the service was quick and careful.

5) Side Effects: 9/10
After eating this pizza I was very thirsty but I didn’t experience any other side effect 🙂

  • OVERALL RATING:  9/10 (original pizza in Giulianova)

147. ITALPIZZA – GRAN PIZZERIA Margherita Bio Kamut (3,29€)

  • 5 FACTORS OF AWESOMESAUCE PIZZA:

1) Baking and Appearance: 8/10
This is the second Italpizza frozen pizza that I’ve tasted and I can tell you that the quality of this brand is definitely higher than the others..
Of course it doesn’t look and taste like the one you can get at the restaurant but it’s definitely a good product.
The baking instructions were clear and your pizza will be easily ready in about 20 minutes (considering preheating time).. I might have overcooked it a little bit but it’s only my fault because I wasn’t paying attention -.-

2017-08-11 19.45.28

2) Dough: 9/10
They write on the box that the leavening process is natural and it lasts 24 hours so this is a good start for a kinda healthy pizza.
The dough is very soft and you can taste tell that the flour is different from the others since is made of kamut grain… I don’t have a good/bad opinion on kamut but I’m pretty sure that it is better than the usual flour.
Despite the fact that I overcooked it the borders are not very crunchy..

2017-08-11 19.48.31

3) Toppings: 6/10
Reading the ingredients on the box I think that they shouldn’t putsunflower oil (even if it’s organic) and oregano: extra-virgin oil and basil are the right ones.
Tomato sauce and mozzarella taste good but the main problem here is the quantity of them: we need more cheese and more sauce, please and thank you!!
However the quality of the ingredients seems pretty good: they tasted delicious.

2017-08-11 19.45.48

3) Value: 6/10
3,29€ for a frozen margherita? This is definitely too much.
I know that the quality of the dough and the ingredients are higher than usual but it’s still a frozen pizza so in my humble opinion it should cost a little less.

5) Side Effects: 9/10
After a few hours I felt a bit thirsty but I wasn’t bloated so I think the dough was indeed very light…

  • OVERALL RATING:  7.6/10 (kinda-healthy frozen pizza option)

144. Gennaro Esposito – Gennaro (10,00€)

  • RESTAURANT WEBSITE: Official website Facebook page
  • 5 FACTORS OF AWESOMESAUCE PIZZA:

1) Dough: 8/10
The dough is very thin in the middle, while puffy and thick on the outside so of course it follows the typical neapolitan pizza tradition..
It’s light and not too salty, but it’s burned on the borders :/

2017-07-31 20.56.57

2) Toppings: 7/10
I love cheese on my pizza so I shouldn’t order this topping; however I asked for it because I love fish and this is supposed to be the pizza of the house so it has to be good!!
I can confirm that it’s good but I’m a bit disappointed by the freshness of the fish.. it was clearly frozen because it tasted a bit chewy and weird 😦
However the quantity of the ingredients is perfect.

2017-07-31 20.53.26

3) Value: 9/10
The first thing I’ve noticed here is that in the price of the pizza the price of service is included!!
I paid this pizza 10euros and I think it’s totally worth it.. plus there are plenty of cheaper option on the menu!!

4) Service: 9/10
This restaurant is always very crowded but I went there on Monday night in August so it was quiet and the service was quick and professional.

5) Side Effects: 9/10
During the night, after eating these pizzas I felt very thirsty. But I didn’t experience bloating or stomachache.

  • Would I Buy It Again? No.

This is a boring healthy cereal.
I usually buy this stuff because I like dried fruit but in this case even the fruit betrayed me: the candied orange just ruins everything.
I mean.. if you like candied orange this is probably a good choice for you but for me it was a huge disappointment.
However this muesli is not completely mushy like the other ones I’ve tasted since there are crunchy corn flakes to save this breakfast!!
In any case I suggest to eat it with fruit yoghurt or with jam to give this cereal some extra flavor!
1 star.

142. MY BEST VEGGIE – Pizza Vegana Con Salsa Di Pomodoro (1,99€)

 

Pizza ClipartPizza ClipartPizza ClipartPizza ClipartPizza ClipartPizza ClipartPizza ClipartPizza ClipartPizza ClipartPizza Clipart white

  • INGREDIENTS: 23.7% soft wheat flour, 20.7% whole wheat flour, 13.2% vegetable based preparation (water, modified potato and maize starch, coconut oil, vegetable protein, salt, vegetable fibers of acacia And chicory, flavoring, stabilizing: tare gum, dyes: calcium carbonate, beta carotene, preservative: sorbic acid, vitamin B12), water, 8% tomato paste, 8% tomato pulp, 6% cherry tomatoes, 2,1 % Sunflower oil, 1.6% extra virgin olive oil, salt, yeast, 0.36% olive oil, stabilized grain germ, 0.13% parsley, 0.1% basil, sugar, 0.03% oregano, 0.02% garlic.
  • BAKING INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat the oven to 220°C. Remove the foil and bake the pizza placing it on the middle rack for 6-8 minutes ca. These instructions must be considered as a guide: the pizza will be ready when all the cheese melted.
  • NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION: 889 Kcal (380g)
  • BRAND WEBSITE: /
  • COUNTRY: Italy
  • 5 FACTORS OF AWESOMESAUCE PIZZA:

1) Baking and Appearance: 7/10
I think this pizza is not ugly but it’s not very attractive either; I mean.. this is a vegan option so I guess it’s a bit hard to make a tasty and good looking fake cheese.
The baking instructions are not very clear since they don’t say anything about defrosting it or not; I didn’t but then it took almost double the time to bake the whole pie (around 15 minutes)

2017-07-23 20.06.39

2) Dough: 10/10
I loved this kind of dough: it’s thin but not too thin everywhere and it tastes great.
I think that the whole wheat flour really makes the difference here.
On the box they write that the leavening process takes 24 hours and I can believe that because it was super light in the end 🙂

2017-07-23 20.11.02

3) Toppings: 7/10
I’m not vegan so fake cheese does not make any sense to me but I can honestly say that this one was tasty; the only problem is its consistency: it’s creamy like soft cheese so as a pizza topping it’s definitely weird. Plus reading the ingredients of this fake cheese I cannot understand what it is made of :/
As for the quantity of cheese and tomatoes I’d say that it’s fair!
However you can also taste a lot of garlic so if you don’t like garlic you wouldn’t enjoy it.
Finally I think this vegan option is very interesting and I would give it a try even if you are not vegan or vegetarian.

2017-07-23 20.06.54

3) Value: 10/10
The price of this pizza is 1,99€ and I think it’s a super nice deal.
I mean, it’s not very big but the ingredients are definitely special (vegan cheese) and it’s very tasty and light so I think it’s worth it.

5) Side Effects: 10/10
I didn’t experience any side effect. Awesome 🙂

141. ALLE COLONNE BY CAPUTO – Oro Rosso Del Vesuvio (16,00€)

Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart Pizza Clipart white Pizza Clipart white Pizza Clipart white

  • DESCRIPTION: Oro Rosso Del Vesuvio (Dough made with aloe vera, buffalo mozzarella, red and yellow cherry tomatoes, basil cream, fresh basil)
  • COUNTRY: Italy
  • RESTAURANT ADDRESS: Corso Di Porta Ticinese 16 20123 Milano‬
  • RESTAURANT WEBSITE: Official website – Facebook page
  • 5 FACTORS OF AWESOMESAUCE PIZZA:

1) Dough: 8/10
The dough is thin in the middle, while puffy and thick on the outside. It follows the typical neapolitan pizza tradition so the crust is not crunchy, but very soft instead.
I cannot taste the difference between the usual dough and this one made with aloe vera but it tastes good and it’s not chewy on the borders!

2017-07-20 21.10.40

2) Toppings: 8/10
This mix of toppings is not very special but it’s simple and kinda “elegant”.
However buffalo mozzarella tastes good but it’s not the best one I’ve eaten and the basil cream is veeeeery subtle in my opinion so it was a bit disappointing in the end…
I also tasted a slice of my friends pizzas and I can honestly say that the best one was the Bufalina one because that mozzarella there tasted great.
Finally the quantity of the ingredients is fair and its quality seems to be high to me too.


3) Value: 5/10
The price of this pizza is 13€ and then they add 3 € as a service fee.
I don’t think this price is very fair both for the meal and for the service.
However “classic” pizza toppings have more reasonable prices.


4) Service: 7/10
The service is quite good, fast and not too suffocating.
However I didn’t enjoy the fact that they made us change our table in the middle of the dinner… that’s kinda rude.

5) Side Effects: 7/10
After eating this pizza I felt very  thirsty but during the night I didn’t experience any bloating or usual side effects. I guess it was easy to digest after all 🙂

  • NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION: 748 Kcal (345g)
  • BRAND WEBSITE: Official Website
  • COUNTRY: Italy
  • 5 FACTORS OF AWESOMESAUCE PIZZA:

1) Baking and Appearance: 6/10
Is it me or the topping of this pizza looks like a fruit salad? These vegetables are super shiny ahaha.
However it does look fun and colorful and fake!
The baking instructions instead are very clear so if you follow them carefully your pizza will be ready in about 10 minutes.

2017-07-13 19.44.58

2) Dough: 5/10
The dough is very weird: it tastes soft and buttery even though is super thin both in the center and on the border.
It seems almost uncooked here and there so I didn’t enjoy it very much.

2017-07-13 19.50.17

3) Toppings: 5/10
The quantity of toppings is fair and even though the vegetables look very bright, they are tasty and juicy.
The problem is always the cheese: where is the cheese? So little and so tasteless 😦

2017-07-13 19.47.24

3) Value: 8/10
This pizza costs 1,70€  but its original price was 3,40 €.
I think this is totally overpriced since it’s not big or special and they don’t use high quality ingredients to make it.
If you buy it on sale like I did it’s worth it 🙂

5) Side Effects: 8/10
After a few hours I felt very thirsty.
However surprisingly I wasn’t very bloated so I guess it wasn’t that difficult to digest..Cool!

  • OVERALL RATING:  6.4/10 (The fruit salad pizza!!!)
