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

  • DESCRIPTION: Gran Bufala (Buffalo mozzarella DOP, datterini tomatoes, parmesan shavings, basil, oil)
  • COUNTRY: Italy
  • RESTAURANT ADDRESS: Via Londonio 22,  ‪‎20154 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: the crust is not crunchy, but soft and delicious (not rubbery or doughy though!) .
However, the cooking was disappointing: it was burned on the border and at the bottom 😦

2) Toppings: 9/10
These toppings are very traditional and the quality and the quantity of them are definitely perfect.
However, I couldn’t taste any parmesan shavings so that was a bit disappointing.
I need to go back there to taste other more interesting toppings so my opinion on this factor might change.

3) Value: 8/10
The price of this pizza is just in line with the other Neapolitan pizzerias in Milano.
The quality of their ingredients is high so I think it’s quite fair.

4) Service: 8/10
The waiters are nice but service is a bit slow in my opinion; the restaurant opened less than a month ago so it might need a while to take off.
I will go back there soon to check this factor too 🙂

5) Side Effects: 9/10
After eating this pizza I felt a bit thirsty but I didn’t experience any other side effect so I guess it was actually very light and the leavening process of the dough well-defined.

  • OVERALL RATING:  8.4/10

  • NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION: 595 Kcal (250g)
  • BRAND WEBSITE: Official Website
  • COUNTRY: Italy
  • 5 FACTORS OF AWESOMESAUCE PIZZA:

1) Baking and Appearance: 4/10
This pizza doesn’t look very yummy.
Especially because it’s not a pizza: it’s a chicken schnitzel topped with tomatoes, mozzarella and oregano.
However the baking instruction are clear and if you read them carefully your “chicken pizza” will be ready in about 12 minutes.

2017-11-19 19.15.17

2) Dough: 4/10
The dough is not a dough in this case: it’s chicken meat breaded in gluten free breadcrumbs.
I’m not a fan of this kind of dish but I’ve eaten better quality frozen shnitzel in my life: in this one the breading is not crunchy  and the meat is tender but not very savory.

2017-11-19 19.18.10

3) Toppings: 4/10
Tomatoes and mozzarella cheese taste good but there is definitely too much oregano in the sauce.
The quantity of oil is also very high: this is a very greasy dish :/

2017-11-19 19.17.48

3) Value: 6/10
The price of this chicken pizza is 3,99€ and I think it’s a lot since the quality of the toppings doesn’t seem very high.
However, they use gluten free breadcrumbs and it’s definitely a special dish so I get that they charge a little bit more than a simple frozen pizza.

5) Side Effects: 9/10
After a few hours I felt thirsty but I didn’t experience any other side effect.

  • OVERALL RATING:  5.4/10 (weird greasy chicken pizza!)

  • COUNTRY: Italy
  • 5 FACTORS OF AWESOMESAUCE PIZZA:

1) Baking and Appearance: 9/10
Italpizza frozen pizza is definitely a good product, you can taste it and smell it for sure 🙂
It appears darker than usual because it’s made with a mixture of ancient grains flour and seeds but it does look yummy to me!!
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 -.-

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 different from the usual one: you can taste that the flour is different from the others since is made of ancient grain flour and seeds…it’s less soft but tastier, I loved it.

2017-11-18 19.56.37

3) Toppings: 9/10
Reading the ingredients on the box I think that they might avoid some bad stuff but in the end every topping tastes good and they make a great mix.
I especially loved the greens and the olives because they were savory but not salty!
The main problem instead is the quantity of tomato, mozzarella and greens: we need more, please and thank you!!
As I said earlier the quality of these toppings seems indeed pretty good: they tasted delicious.

3) Value: 8/10
3,49€ for a frozen pizza is definitely too much.
However, the quality of the dough and the ingredients is higher than usual and the toppings are not banal so I would buy it again.

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

  • OVERALL RATING:  9/10 (tasty and healthy frozen pizza!)

Fall in USA is all about pumpkin spice so I’m very excited to finally taste this LIFE flavor! If you like pumpkin spice latte as much as I do you would love this cereal.. they will turn your milk into the perfect fall beverage 🙂
As I already wrote about LIFE Cinnamon, I like its texture but it’s not very crunchy: it gets soggy quickly because the milk passes through its holes very easily.
I can’t rate them 5 stars because they still lack of a cool shape and texture but it’s definitely a 4+ cereal!
3 stars to the packaging instead because the pumpkin makes it less sad than the original one!

173. ECOPIZZA – Bufala Sottobosco (10,50€)


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

  • DESCRIPTION: Tomato sauce, buffalo mozzarella cheese, champignon mushrooms, chiodini mushrooms
  • COUNTRY: Italy
  • RESTAURANT ADDRESS: Via Cesare Battisti 1, 20122 Milano
  • RESTAURANT WEBSITE: Facebook page – Official Website
  • 5 FACTORS OF AWESOMESAUCE PIZZA:

1) Dough: 3/10
The dough is the thinest one I have ever seen, from the middle to the crunchy/burned crust.
I usually like thin crust pizza but this is definitely too dry to be enjoyable; plus, it’s very small 😦

2017-11-16 19.29.22

2) Toppings: 8/10
The quality of the ingredients is clearly high, you can taste it.
I especially loved the tomato sauce.
The quantity of them is fair.

2017-11-16 19.30.04

3) Value: 5/10
I paid this pizza 10,5€ (without delivery) and I think this is completely unfair since the dimension and the dough are both very disappointing.

2017-11-16 19.52.00

4) Service: 6/10
I ordered this pizza via Glovo so I don’t actually know how is this restaurant but I can tell that my pizza arrived on time and it was the one that I ordered so they did their job.
However the pizza was cold and they made me pay for delivery even though it was supposed to be free that night.

5) Side Effects: 8/10
I felt very thirsty all night long but I experienced only a little bit of bloating during the night so I think that the dough was indeed very light after all!
