Smoked Ham, Mushroom & Mascarpone Pizza Review
The Pizza Lads were out shopping for the weekly groceries (not by choice!) and we had been told by the wives we were allowed to have one chilled Pizza to cook at home. So we decided upon Asda. We scoped out the variety on offer and our eyes fell upon the Extra Special Hand Stretched Smoked Ham, Mushroom & Mascarpone Pizza, Now with a title like that it must be good and through the viewing window in the box, it did look pretty nice. So in the trolley it went and when we were home the oven was straight on.
Out the packet the appearance was pleasing as the Ham looked really fresh and Mushrooms smelled delicious and when cooked according the instructions the Mascarpone would have melted all it over.
So on to the taste test… The crust was nice and light, thin/bubbly and the stone-baked dough was very good and tasted really fresh. The Smoked Ham had cooked well and was really tender and tasty. The Mascarpone was creamy and light and had toasted nicely on top. The mushrooms were quite Garlicky but very moreish. Sauce was fairly standard but not unpleasant and we detected an underlying hint of Black Pepper and Lemon Juice.
Very good all round and meets pizza chain standards. We might even volunteer next time to go shopping.
