I recently bought some Chicago Town Loaded Tomato pizzas as they were on offer in the local shop, I'm not normally that keen on frozen pizza so I cooked it for the kids and just saved myself a sliver.... Omg it was amazing. I had to go out and buy 3 more. When I was buying it the checkout lady said. "have you tried these, it's the best pizza ever?".

I gave my neighbours a slice each and unprompted they said it was the best pizza they have ever had!!

What unexpectedly amazing food have you tried recently... I need new good food in my life!!

The best cheap pizza is the Tesco cheese (not frozen). Its about £1.20ish. Then add own toppings and more grated mozzarella.

So this thread made me want a Chicago Town pizza since I hadn't had one for years and I'm so disappointed. I used to love them but it wasn't nice at all.

Agree about Asda create your own pizza. The ones with barbecue sauce are AMAZING, and I'm not even a fan of barbecue sauce generally. They've been an unfortunate victim of the covid restrictions in my local Asda though sad

I always buy Aldi chocolate... Moser Roth range is lovely. I saw Tony Chocoloney recommended on here and got a small bar for about €3. It was okay, but nothing special.
Lidl have their own version of it now which is far superior. It’s even got the strange shapes to break off instead of squares, but tastes so much better. It’s fairtrade too.

Tried the Chicago town pizza tonight - sorry it is a no for us. Might try it again with the cheese stuffed crust - way too tomatoey for me. Base was quite nice though.

I think i need to write an aldi shopping list after reading this

I DID write an Aldi shopping list after reading this, and bought a sourdough pizza (chicken + chorizo + roquito) and a bar of the milk chocolate. Both very good!

Aldi chocolate is indeed amazing.

On the last Aldi Shopping List thread someone mentioned their garlic & herb dipping sauce which I can confirm is just as good as Dominos’!

At Christmas their chocolate covered Lebkuchen Hearts are divine - I start buying them as soon as they appear, 2 packs each week so that we have plentiful stocks for Christmas!

I love a Chicago town pizza! It’s been a while might grab some.

I second the Lidl frozen panko crumb calamari, great cooked for 10 mins in the air fryer! 😋

We had friends over last week. Because we had to eat outside I wanted something simple to serve. We ended up having a green salad, roast potatoes and rare roast beef served with béarnaise sauce. It was meat and 2 veg essentially. The simplest thing ever with no last minute prep but SO delicious. So delicious in fact that although I had deliberately over catered so we could have leftovers the next day, there was nothing left but the pattern on the plates.

Aldi Salted Caramel and Praline ice cream. Utterly amazing.
