Review – Tesco Finest* Lighter Pizzas

If you’ve followed this site for a while then you’ll probably know I love pizza. Pizza is my downfall, my weakness. I did Weight Watchers (still am!) and didn’t eat as much of the glorious dough-y stuff for a while, having occasional ones here and there while trawling the supermarkets looking for the elusive WW own brand pizza. I’ve still never found them.

Help is at hand though – Tesco have their own brand lighter pizzas in the Finest range – and we were sent two – the Finest Woodfired Chargrilled Pepper and Tomato & Chipotle Chilli Salsa (430 calories) and Woodfired Chicken, Mint & Coriander (445 calories) varieties. There are also Woodfired Margherita & Basil Pesto and Woodfired Salsiccia Marinara Pizza varieties available. (I don’t have any calorie information for those)

Weight Watchers wise they’d be approximately 11 points at the most which for me is great – given a regular Domino’s slice can be 7 points.

In fact, both pizzas are delicious and we enjoyed them tonight – the vegetarian one being the one I had (its spicy, I did have to take some of the chillies off, but it had a good taste to it, minimal cheese but you didn’t miss it and tomato so well sundried H didn’t complain about them which is a plus!), and the chicken one being the one Shaun and H shared and found the chicken to be just right, the sauce complemented the pizza well and the mint and coriander dressing was pretty good too. The base is really thin and crispy and didn’t get soggy (which I hate when that happens) and held the toppings well.

The toppings weren’t generous but they were adequate – the pizzas were filling without being too much. Had I been more organised we’d have had it with a salad, but we got in tonight quite late so had very little time to prepare anything.

These pizzas are available in store now – pick them up before I buy them all… I’m definitely trying the cheese and tomato one!  They cost £4 each or are on offer at £7 for two.

We were sent the pizzas for the purpose of review. My opinion is honest and full of huge relief at a decent low-calorie pizza at LAST.
