Goodfellas – Vegan Falafel Pizza

Having had this on quite a number of occasions I thought I had already done a review post on it but when I checked I couldn’t find it, so this is to make up for it. It may not be as detailed as my previous posts but I’ll give it a shot.

I first tried this pizza not long after my OH decided to go vegan. He has been a big fan of dominos and their Vegi Supreme, so when I spotted this in our local Sainsburys I thought I had hit the motherload. And for only £2, I couldn’t go wrong. Well, concerning him at least. I was a little wary about it as I’m not a big fan of falafel at all. In fact, in truth any that I have tasted I have had to spit out. I just didn’t like it. That and the fact that there was spinach on it. I thought however that I would give it a go.

Being a frozen pizza I wasn’t expecting much when I took it out of the box. It looked the same as any other with the plastic wrapper on. It’s not until you take the wrapper off that you see just how much ‘green stuff’ is on it. As per the instructions on the box, I bunged it in the middle of a pre-heated oven at 180°C and waited 14-16 mins.

The only problem with this I found is that our oven seems to be in the blink so I either have to up the temperature a little or leave it in for a little longer than it states. Once the pizza was cooked and it was divided up between my OH and I we tucked in.

Being a fan of the dominos pizza and their thick crust I didn’t think that I would’ve liked the thin crust. It’s not something I would’ve usually gone for. I found this one though to be very tasty. The base had just enough crunch in it without making it feel like a task to bite into. The topping, including the spinach, was as tasty as anything that dominos could produce.

Munching my way through it I didn’t even notice the lack of cheese. It was something that I could eat every night of the week and not complain about it. The spinach, which I mentioned, was not an issue. In was able to devour it without any cause for concern and the falafel didn’t even taste like falafel. The fact that there was a lack of cheese on it didn’t even bother me, which I found strange as it would be the typical thing I would look for on a pizza.

If there was something I would change about it, it would be the lack of peppers. (I like my peppers on a pizza.) That and I’m sure it can do without the amount of salt it states it has on the nutritional information.

All in all, I was ‘well impressed’ with this pizza. It was tasty, full of goodness and I could definitely see me eating a full one myself, being just under 400kcal per half. Something which a dominos would not allow. As most of theirs are around that per slice. This alone would convince me that this is the way better option.

Anyway friends, thanks for reading. I hope you liked the post; make sure and like, share, comment and if you have any suggestions please don’t hesitate to gimme a shout!  J xxx
