195. SVILA – PIZZA VISSANA CALABRESE Con Friarielli E ‘Nduja (3,79€)

  • INGREDIENTS: Wheat flour, mozzarella (14%) (milk, salt, cultures, rennet), water, tomato puree (8%), turnip tops (8%), tomato pulp (7%), ‘nduja sausage (4%) (pork fat, pork, chilli pepper, salt, spice extracts), onion, extra virgin olive oil, salt, sunflower oil, yeast, malted wheat flour, sugar, oregano, chilli powder, garlic.
  • BAKING INSTRUCTIONS: Remove the Pizza from the packaging and let it defrost for about 10 minutes. Preheat the oven to a temperature of about 220°C. Bake it on the oven tray for about 8-10 minutes, until the cheese melts.

  • COUNTRY: Italy
  • 5 FACTORS OF AWESOMESAUCE PIZZA:

1) Baking and Appearance: 5/10
As you can see from the picture below this pizza doesn’t look very yummy.
The ingredients are put in the middle of the pizza in a messy way and some areas are totally empty.
Plus the cheese is weird and a bit burnt. This last thing is probably my fault though because I left it 11 minutes inside the oven -.-

2) Dough: 6/10
The dough is the most disappointing thing of this pizza because it’s a bit tasteless; the pieces without toppings on the outside are very bland and they lack of salt.
The crust is crunchy and it’s not thin but it’s not thick either: a very boring in between state.
They write on the box that the leavening process is 24 hours long so it should be very light but I don’t think you can actually taste that.

3) Toppings: 6/10
I still don’t know why I bought this pizza in the first place since I don’t like spicy food but I mean.. it wasn’t that spicy!! A person from Calabria who usually eats very spicy food would think that this pizza is a joke or something like that.
The quantity of ‘nduja and cheese is very low compared to the amount of red onions that are not even listed among the main ingredients of this pizza.
However, the greens taste good and I appreciated this mix of ingredients because it’s not very common in the frozen pizzas world.

2018-02-15 19.51.20

3) Value: 5/10
This pizza costs 3,79€ and I think it’s not completely fair since the only “expensive” ingredients is ‘nduja sausage and its amount is ridiculously low.

5) Side Effects: 4/10
After a few hours I felt very thirsty and I experience bloating and stomachache all night long (I might not be accustomed to spicy food though so it’s not completely their fault).

  • OVERALL RATING:  5.2/10 (not so spicy frozen pizza from Calabria!)

They did it!
Americans managed to make my favorite childhood cereal better than the Italian ones!
It’s probably because of the amount of sugar and the weird ingredients that they put in here but I can tell that these Cocoa Krispies taste actually better than Coco Pops RisoCiok !
They are sweeter, crunchier and more addictive!
Even the packaging looks way more fun ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

5 stars 😀

194. PIZZARIA DAL CAMPIONE – Zuccona (10,50€)

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

  • DESCRIPTION: Zuccona (Pumpkin cream, fior di latte cheese from Agerola, sausage from Modena, eggplant chips, parmesan shavings, fresh basil)
  • COUNTRY: Italy
  • RESTAURANT ADDRESS: Via Persicetana 880 40014 Crevalcore (B0)
  • RESTAURANT WEBSITE: Facebook page
  • 5 FACTORS OF AWESOMESAUCE PIZZA:

1) Dough: 9/10
The dough is thin in the middle, while very puffy and thick on the outside.
It follows the Neapolitan style, it’s light and well leavened but it was a bit overcooked/burned here and there so the baking process might get better.

2018-02-10 20.38.44

2) Toppings: 10/10
The toppings are the real deal here.
Even though they don’t make so much noise about the precise provenience or brand of the ingredients, it’s pretty clear that their quality is very high.
Plus the mix of toppings are not only traditional and I especially appreciate the one that I chose: eggplants chips are very satisfying, the pumpkin cream is sweet and the sausage is savory but not too salty. I loved it.
The quantity of the toppings is perfect too.

2018-02-10 20.33.472018-02-10 20.38.57

3) Value: 8/10
The value of this pizzas is actually 12€ since they added 1,5€ as a service fee.
This is a special pizza so the higher price is understandable but the service and the atmosphere of this restaurant isn’t worth 1,5€.

2018-02-11 15.41.17

4) Service: 7/10
This place is the trashiest Neapolitan restaurant I’ve ever been in my life.
It’s big and very weirdly furnished: there are white curtains and gazebos in the middle of the room, pictures with famous people on the wall and bright lights evrywhere.
It kinda makes people uncomfortable.
The place is very crowded and noisy, especially during the weekend, and the service is very slow.
Tablecloths? They are made of paper.

5) Side Effects: 10/10
After eating these pizzas I didn’t experience any side effect! Nice 🙂

  • OVERALL RATING:  8.8/10 (trashiest Neapolitan restaurant in Bologna!)
  • DESSERT SUGGESTION: Delizia Al limone! (lemon cake)
    Their desserts are not homemade but they are delicious.

  • NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION: 654 Kcal (380g)
  • BRAND WEBSITE: Official Website
  • COUNTRY: Italy
  • 5 FACTORS OF AWESOMESAUCE PIZZA:

1) Baking and Appearance: 7/10
Before starting my review I need to explain what happened here: I bought a vegan pizza and then  of course I decided to put cheese on it because otherwise it would have been too sad -.-‘
That being said, I can tell you that this pizza doesn’t look that bad but the added cheese definitely improve its appereance 🙂
The baking instructions instead are clear and your pizza will be easily ready in less than 20 minutes (considering preheating time): crunchy and perfectly cooked.

2018-01-28 18.52.39

2) Dough: 8/10
This pizza is made with kamut flour so it’s a bit different from the others: the taste is very similar to the whole wheat dough but it’s very very crunchy, especially on the borders!
It’s not a very common dough for a pizza but I really enjoyed it 🙂

2018-01-28 18.58.14

3) Toppings: 7/10
I’m not a fan of bell peppers and eggplants but I can admit that they taste delicious on this pizza!
Their quantity and quality seems to be more than fair and they come from Italy.
The only flaw is that there is no cheese but if you add some gouda ( as I did ) or mozzarella you can solve this problem easily 😉

2018-01-28 18.55.31

3) Value: 7/10
I paid this pizza 2,27€ but it was discounted because its original price is 3,25€ instead.
I don’t think is pretty fair because even though the ingredients are definitely special (kamut dough + organic products), it’s not very big.
However if you buy it at this discounted price is totally worth it.

5) Side Effects: 9/10
I was a bit thirsty after eating this pizza but it might be because of the salty gouda.
Anyhow, the dough is light because I didn’t experience any heavy bloating 🙂

  • OVERALL RATING:  7.6/10 ( vegan frozen pizza with kamut dough!)

This cereal tastes the same as Crunch Berries!
The only difference is the shape and the colors of the berries: here there are only blue and red balls and bats!
So if you are into Cap’n Crunch and baseball this will be definitely your favorite cereal ever 😀
The chemical sugary flavor of the bats and balls and the perfect crunchiness of the yellow pillows killed again: I love it.

191. 21 GRAMMI SOUL AND FOOD – Old Boy (9,00€)

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

  • DESCRIPTION: Old Boy (Provola cheese, sausage, Neapolitan friarielli, basil, extra virgin oil)
  • COUNTRY: Italy
  • RESTAURANT ADDRESS: Via San Bernardino da Siena, 6 41012 Carpi (Modena)
  • RESTAURANT WEBSITE: Facebook page
  • 5 FACTORS OF AWESOMESAUCE PIZZA:

1) Dough: 6/10
As you can see in the picture below the dough doesn’t look like the Neapolitan one and indeed it doesn’t taste like that either.
It’s slightly puffier on the borders but it’s not very well leavened so the cooking is not uniform: some areas are burned while some others a bit gummy.
However, it’s still a quite light dough.

2018-01-20 20.20.53

2) Toppings: 7/10
This is a very traditional Neapolitan mix of ingredients and it was very tasty.
The sausage was savory but not too salty, while the greens were a bit spicy but delicious.
The amount of the ingredients is fair but I’m not very sure about the quality of them!
In fact, my sister’s pizza had weird fresh tomatoes on it (the one you usually put in salads) so the toppings were not very convincing.

2018-01-20 20.20.36

 

3) Value: 9/10
I paid this meal 10,5€ but the actual price of the pizza is 9€ because they add 1,5€ as a service fee.  I think it’s fair for this kind of pizza.

2018-01-20 19.57.47

4) Service: 8/10
The service was quick and fine, I can’t remember anything good or bad about this experience.
I like their menu idea: all the names of the pizzas are actually movies!

5) Side Effects: 7/10

After dinner, I was very thirsty probably because of the spicy friarielli but I didn’t experience any other side effect like bloating or stomachache.

  • OVERALL RATING:  7.4/10
  • DESSERT SUGGESTION: I had an apple strudel there, it was okay.

 

190. BIIF Burger Ham & Pizza – Biif DOP (14 €) + Dallas (9€)

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

  • DESCRIPTION: Biif DOP (San Marzano tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, beef meatballs, ricotta stuffed crust, fresh basil) + Dallas (fior di latte from Agerola, provola cheese from Agerola, gorgonzola cheese, emmental cheese, fresh basil)
  • COUNTRY: Italy
  • RESTAURANT ADDRESS: Via San Vito 7 20123 Milano‬
  • RESTAURANT WEBSITE: Official website
  • 5 FACTORS OF AWESOMESAUCE PIZZA:

1) Dough: 8/10
The dough is very thin in the middle, while puffy and thick on the outside. It follows the typical Neapolitan pizza tradition and it leavening seems very well performed.
However, it’s very burned at the bottom and it was a bit annoying at some point.

2018-01-17 20.57.182018-01-17 20.57.24

2) Toppings: 9/10
The toppings are definitely the most satisfying things about this pizza, but they are also very hard to digest ahah
The stuffed crust pizza is so full of cheese: there is a lot of ricotta and it tastes amazing!!! The meatballs are a bit salty and maybe a bit too big but they taste good.
Buffalo mozzarella and all the different cheeses on the Dallas pizza taste delicious and their quantity is definitely more than fair!!! (too much?? I love cheese so I can’t complain but maybe someone wouldn’t like that..)

2018-01-17 20.57.302018-01-17 20.57.38

3) Value: 8/10
The Biif pizza is very expensive but it’s also special and full of stuff!!
The classic pizzas are cheaper but not even that much ( the Margherita is 7€).
We got a 20% discount because we reserved a table through the app ” The fork” ..

4) Service: 8/10
The waiters are not very professional and they look a bit disoriented and not very quick (we waited so much time to get some water -.-)
However, the service is undeniably good since they even give you complimentary starters (potato croquettes) and final digestive (meloncello!!)

5) Side Effects: 6/10
During the night, after eating these pizzas I felt very very thirsty but we picked the cheesiest pizzas on the menu so maybe even though the dough was well leavened the toppings were too fat and difficult to digest!

  • OVERALL RATING:  7.8/10

189. LA PIZZERIA NAZIONALE – Porchetta e patate viola with soft dough (13 €)

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

  • DESCRIPTION: Porchetta e Patate viola (Soft dough, smoked provola cheese, violet potatoes, pork roast with rosemary, champignon mushrooms, parmesan cheese )
  • COUNTRY: Italy
  • RESTAURANT ADDRESS: Via Palermo 11 20121 Milano‬
  • 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. It follows the typical Neapolitan pizza tradition so the crust is not crunchy, but very soft instead.
I enjoy this kind of texture but it’s a bit chewy here and there and it isn’t cooked evenly on the borders so I wouldn’t rate this factor more than 8.
Finally, they also make another kind of dough (the crunchy one) so I need to taste that to make a comparison.

2018-01-12 20.01.40

2018-01-12 20.10.05

2) Toppings: 9/10
This special mix of toppings is definitely precious.
Violet potatoes, mushrooms and porchetta are savory and delicious and they make a great mix together with the smoked provola cheese!!
I do have some points to make though:

  • I haven’t seen/tasted any parmesan cheese
  • The mix of ingredients is a bit salty

Finally, the quantity of the ingredients is fair and its quality seems to be high to me too.

3) Value: 8/10
The price of this pizza is 13€ and I don’t know how much is their service fee since I asked for delivery option (which is free with deliveroo).
In any case, this is a special pizza so I can understand this price, the margherita pizza costs 5,9€ which is kinda fair in Milano!!

2018-01-12 20.24.16

4) Service: 9/10
I asked for the delivery option so I cannot say a lot about the service of this place.
However, the pizza arrived on time and with a customized and nice box so I have nothing to complain about.
I will go there in person to taste their other special pizzas!!!

5) Side Effects: 8/10
After eating this pizza I felt very very thirsty but during the night I didn’t experience any bloating or usual effects. I guess it was easy to digest after all 🙂

  • OVERALL RATING:  8.4/10
