A freshly baked classic crust topped with garlic and tasty mozzarella, cut into bites sized pieces.
This used to be a real favourite of mine but the current recipes seems to be really light on garlic. Not as impressed as I used to be. Try again guys, this one needs a bit of backdating. Can't even get it cut in wedges anymore, so there goes my instant Pizza Casadias.
The taste and texture of this was more than a little greasy and had me wondering also if there had been any garlic used or whether it had been waved past a bulb on its way out the door. When it is fresh this is a good addition to the family meal, but it does not heat up well.
The way the portions are cut makes it difficult to do a garlic bread sandwich, which I used to like to do with the last incarnation. The pricetag of $4.90 per pizza base was a litle steep for my liking.
In short, I am doubtful I will be getting this again unless the garlic and cheese ratios improve.
The latest incarnation of the old favourite, these are much the same, though presented differently. Despite the promotional picture on the official website, these are actually cut into square, bite-sized chunks.
I don't know if it is wishful thinking, or a genuine memory, but I remember there being more garlic than the current version presented me with. I would have thought it just one of the milder ones, but of the three packs we got, all were the same... just a little bland for my tastes. A tad more garlic, and a smidge more cheese would have really made these perfect... and perhaps just a hard nudge as it entered the oven, to shorten the cooking time a bit, would have improved it too... I like to have chewy cheese, not cheese glaze. Again with the picky lad comment.
Overall, though not quite as impressed with this version as with the original, it's still a viable alternative from the usual garlic bread... for those who enjoy variety on occasion.
