Product Description

Mozzarella and tomato, pure and simple.
We've been perfecting the art of pizza ever since our founder, Peter Boizot, brought the great taste of Italian pizza to the UK.

50 years on, you can enjoy our best ever Classic pizzas at home, with simple, fresh ingredients on our signature base. The Classic has all the qualities of our original restaurant pizza, which hasn't changed since 1965.
All it needs now is to be cooked to perfection.
Enjoy.

Preparation and Usage

Cook it our way
1. Prepare your pizza. Remove all packaging including base disc.
Even out the toppings and drizzle around a teaspoon of oil to make it go crispy without drying out.
In the restaurant we use extra virgin oil on this pizza, but garlic oil and chilli oil also work well.
2. Hot and fast. Put your pizza on the top shelf of the oven, once the oven has reached 200°C. Ideally use a preheated pizza stone or a pizza pan with holes in the base. It is fine to put it directly on the oven rack, but never on a solid baking tray.
3. Is it ready? Cook for 7-9 minutes. The cheese will have gone golden brown and the base nice and crispy all the way to the centre.

Eat it your way
In our restaurants you can have pizzas exactly how you want them.
Many people like to add freshly ground black pepper, but here are some other ideas.
Feel like a Soho?
Once cooked, cover the pizza with rocket, scatter over some freshly shaved Grana Padano and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.
Love the Quattro Formaggi?
Before cooking add the other cheeses. In the restaurant we use Fontal, Gorgonzola and Grana Padano, and add a single black olive in the centre.
Hot and spicy?
After cooking crumble over some dried pepperocini chilli flakes or finely sliced fresh chilli.

Thinnest topping i've ever seen...

.....my toddler wasn't impressed - so I had to add pasta sauce and ham to this just to cover the large areas of bare base. It's not gtoing to be on my shopping list again.

dissapointing

these used to be the best of the ready made pizzas but recently crust has been spongey and sweet not like the thin a crispy crust previously. Cooked on a pizza stone so not a cooking issue. Nasty!

A bit bland.

There are better Margherita pizzas out there - Pizza Express are trading on their name here as really this is a very ordinary, bland pizza with quite a hard crust. Not worth the extra cost.
