Good Choice Range?

I am not a takeaway fan. Usually. But being on night shift changes everything. Although I know I could and should have prepared a healthy meal far faster than my pizza was delivered I decided to give the Domino’s Good Choice Range a try tonight. Their single-serve pizzas are all less than 400 calories and have pretty low levels of fat, sugar and salt compared to other takeout choices (see nutritional info)

Here’s the picture they have on their website, it looked pretty good:

Once I got over the disappointment that the delivery man wouldn’t bring the pizza to my armchair I opened the box and here was what I found:

P1020595

In case you can’t tell, I chose the BBQ Chicken & Mushroom Ciabatta Pizza with chicken, mushroom, fresh tomato, onion and pineapple and barbecue sauce. It looked like someone had wolfed the pizza down and regurgitated it back into the box but fortunately it didn’t taste like it.

When I read that it had a ciabatta base I expected it to be soft and chewy, like ciabatta bread but the base was thin and crispy. There was a decent amount of toppings and it didn’t taste as greasy and heavy as pizza often does but I still wouldn’t describe it is very ‘nice’ and at $14.90 it certainly wasn’t cheap. Next time I’m tired and tempted to buy takeaway I think I’ll just look at the picture above and I won’t need any more motivation to get back in the kitchen! Sometimes it’s nice to be reminded that your own food is actually pretty good.
