How dare they make stuffed crust pizza and then stuff the crust with manky, cheap tomato puree!?

If I'm buying a stuffed crust pizza I expect it to be stuffed with something delicious like cheese, or at least with something imaginative like pesto, but tomato puree, really??

I feel cheated. This has totally ruined my Pizza & Beer night. sad

Ugh that sounds rank! Is Chicago Town cheap and nasty or is it one of the better brands (never eaten it)? I get the Ristorante pizzas, anything else I've tasted is greasy and horrible.

Oh that is so wrong, I'd demand compensation and some form of counselling!

chinley Sat 01-Dec-12 19:54:07

It's supposed to be one of the good brands. angry

CailinDana Sat 01-Dec-12 19:54:57

Blagh I hate that, when you build up something in your mind and it turns out to horrible. Was the rest of the pizza nice at least?

chinley Sat 01-Dec-12 20:05:08

Yes, the rest of it was lovely, but I think that makes it all the more horrifying and sadistic.

I feel traumatised.

its disgusting. Its not even nice tomato sauce. As you say, its bloody puree

JackThePumpkinKing Sat 01-Dec-12 20:09:58

I really like it smile

And the microwave pizzas

shock

No cheese? Just stuffed with tom puree?

YANBU

I'd be in tears

I have just ordered a Dominos. You could have a piece of that if it would help sad

<sobs>

Yes please catgirl! Could you post it to me? I'm too upset to move. sad

catgirl1976geesealaying Sat 01-Dec-12 20:30:19

I will

Bubblewrap might keep it warm

Pizza express all the way here. but only when half price as I am tight and they are overpriced

I am showing this to DH to show him that those pizzas are, in fact, rank and stuffed crust should ALWAYS be delicious cheese grin

Ugh it sounds god awful.
Cheese stuffed would be so much better.
Latest favorite for me from Round Table pizza, thick crust, barbeque sauce, Chicken, mushrooms and tomatoes. Mmmmm It is delicious.

I thought Chicago was downmarket so not surprised!

fuckwittery Sat 01-Dec-12 21:53:16

i think that's a really nice pizza and it would have even more millions of calories cheese stuffed. I lurve the microwave ones.

cees Sat 01-Dec-12 21:56:29

Oh I love those pizzas, would love one now.

jakesmith Sat 01-Dec-12 23:01:20

I just ordered a DOminos & it was minging. I called tham up & they were really good, offered another one but I'd eaten most of it (hungover & hungry) so they gave me a refund. You have to complain, it is actually really helpful to companies, just keep it fact based & not strongly worded otherwise it'll be ignored

gail734 Sat 01-Dec-12 23:07:40

I just had an M&S one and it was really good. Not frozen, chilled, from the fridge cabinet. I'm normally an Dominoes fan but I'm on a ML budget. Nothing as deeply disappointing as looking forward to something and then getting a duff imitation.

OP YABU - I LOVE that pizza! Plus it says what's in the crust on the box grin

I think the four cheese version of it has a cheese stuffed crust.

chinley Sat 01-Dec-12 23:36:03

Well I'm sticking to Dr Oetker from now on.

Actually, Tesco have some really nice chilled mozzarella pizzas.

You lot who liked this abomination are all nuts!

OkayHazel Sat 01-Dec-12 23:40:46

Chicago Town is not one of the quality brands!!

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 01-Dec-12 23:42:00

<whispers> but Op Dr Oetker own Chicago town. I take the business of buying pizza very seriously grin

chinley Sat 01-Dec-12 23:44:55

Oh God Ali, all my illusions have been shattered today. sad

chinley Sat 01-Dec-12 23:46:09

OkayHazel, I grew up in the ghetto, it's posh for me. grin

TenPercenter Sat 01-Dec-12 23:50:16

I think you should certainly complain, although tbh I dislike any stuffed crust pizza, for some bizarre reason it tends to make the whole pizza a bit soggy and meh. I used to love those chicago town individual microwave pizzas, haven't had one of them for years.

Chicago microwave pizzas aren't so much pizzas as bread based quiches which are always either molten or stone cold. Never an ambient temperature in the middle.
