Last year I took part in The Great Bloggers Bake Off and during the pastry weeks I was always annoyed with my own efforts as I have never been very good at making pastry in all honesty – I always try to make it myself but if it goes wrong, then ready made it is! (I usually always have some in the freezer for such happenings). I didn’t know until I saw them on the shelf but Jus-Rol do pizza bases and also ready to bake croissants! I’ve always fancied making my own croissants but this is the next best thing I guess!
The pizza bases come in a pack of two and as they are joined together and ready to go, they turn out to be rectangular bases meaning you don’t lose your corners! (I love that kind of pizza). I did find the bases hard to take apart so only one of them unrolled intact, but the other was big enough to split between the four of us with chips & salad on the side. (The one that didn’t come out intact I shaped into a pizza for hubby to take to work).
Also being rectangular, it was easy to section it off into four so we could all have different toppings. I like the fact that you also get a jar of tomato sauce with these, which is tasty. Although they state thin crust I did find the bases slightly too much on the thin side so it ended up more like a pizza ‘tart’, but it was incredibly yummy being extra crunchy on the outside but still lovely and soft on the inside – we all polished it off so they passed the test for our pizza loving family!
Our rating – 3/5
The croissants come in a pack of six so between the four of us we had to fight over who got the most!
I like the fact these come in a ‘roll’ with serrations so they are easy to separate, and they are a good size. I thought I would tart them up a bit so added some white chocolate chips and some dried cranberries.
Our rating – 4.5/5
One thing I did find with both tube containers is that they were quite difficult for me to open and the instructions weren’t completely clear – but I got there in the end with help from hubby!
Jus-Rol products retail at major supermarkets and come in many varieties.
I was sent vouchers to buy these these products to review. All thoughts and opinions are honest & my own.
