Shaken and Not Stirred – Skyfall Party Night with
Domino’s Gourmet Range Pizza
I love making pizzas at home, as I’m a dab hand at making bread and often make a little extra bread dough in order to make pizza for lunch. However, when Domino’s Pizza offered me the chance to have a Gourmet Pizza Party, and order some pizzas from their Gourmet Pizza Range, I knew of several young people whom I was staying with, (my daughter and her flat mates) who would LOVE the chance of free pizza, and it would give me a night off from cooking too! We decided to order the pizzas after seeing the latest Bond film Skyfall……and Martinis were made and sipped as we waited for the order to arrive.
With the budget I was allowed, I ordered two LARGE pizzas – there were four of us and we had snacks and nibbles to eat beforehand, as well as some desserts for afterwards. There were two vegetarians, and two carnivores, so we picked a Florentine pizza and a Four Seasons Pizza, at £17:49 each (large) including delivery.
The pizzas arrived within 35 minutes of ordering them and were still piping hot, and came with a pot of garlic sipping sauce with each pizza.
The Florentine Pizza comprises: Baby Spinach, SunBlush Baby Plum Tomatoes and Greek Feta Cheese on a fresh thin crust base, and is a vegetarian pizza.
The Four Seasons Pizza comprises: ¼ Rustica (Chicken breast strips, smoked bacon rashers, baby spinach and SunBlush baby plum tomatoes), ¼ Firenze (Ventricina Salami, Pepperoni and Peruvian Roquito Peppers ), ¼ Florentine (as above) and ¼ SunBlush® baby plum tomatoes (No topping changes can be made to this pizza)
The pizzas went down a storm with my daughter and her flatmates, and they even allowed me a slice once or twice! The pizza dough on both pizza was good, with a great texture, and the toppings were as described – but we all thought that The Florentine pizza was a bit dry and we were all a tad confused as to why it had Feta cheese on it not a good Italian mozzarella. The Four Seasons was on a thick pizza base, and the topping ratio was more generous than the Florentine, despite them both being the same price. Both pizzas were generous in size and two large pizzas was just right for three hungry young un’s and one less hungry older person!
I think that £17:49 per pizza is on the high side, but we were delighted to discover that on delivery we had qualified for a BOGOF deal – buy one get one free! So, at £8:75 per pizza, delivered, that made it a very good deal and well worth the price for these gourmet pizzas, which made for a fun-filled post Bond pizza party! The next time I fancy taking advantage of pizza home delivery , I will be trying out Domino’s again! That’s all for now, see you later, Karen
