Rich adores pizza, I may have already mentioned this on the blog once or twice. One of our couple friends swears by Planet Pizza for their pizza treat fix. There are two Planet Pizza branches in Bristol, one on Gloucester Road and the other on Whiteladies. Being that we live just off Whiteladies, last week we decided to take advantage of Planet Pizza's 2 for 1 deal which is available every Monday and Tuesday all evening.
It is quite a strange little venue with the odd space theme and purple walls but actually I liked the homely feeling to it. The place was pretty empty apart from one other couple but we were dining at 6.30 which was a little early for most. We decided to push the boat out and go for a bottle of wine to go with our doughball starters and pizzas.
I was surprised by the amount of good vegetarian toppings on offer, some of which were different from the usual. This was actually the same for all the pizzas the toppings varied to a lot of pizza places around which was a refreshing change. I went for one of their specials, Brie and Bacon and Rich chose the Meteorite, a spicy meaty one.

The first thing to say about these pizzas is that they are more American pizza pie style pizzas very heavily laden with cheese and toppings, which for a cheese fanatic like me is a welcome sight. The base wasn't actually as heavy as I was expecting I was dreading Pizza Hut style deep pan with a two inch base but these were about a centimetre in thickness.

We both really enjoyed our pizzas they were hot, tasty and ultimately very comforting. Although I wouldn't want to eat such an indulgent pizza all the time this is definitely the place to go for when you want a huge slice of warming cheese laden carb filled goodness. Brie on a pizza is definitely a revelation and I hope it is a recurring special because I would order this pizza again. The two for one offer is excellent value perfect for a post weekend discussion with friends or a treat with the other half. To see what other pizzas they have check out the Planet Pizza website
yummers!! i love planet pizza!ReplyDelete

We weren't offered 241 on the one in Cotham Hill last week, supposedly it's only Mondays. Not sure if it's due to The Hill pub having 241s on Tuesday, limit competition maybe?ReplyDelete
I need to update this post, apparently they do not offer the 241 deal at all any more :( which is a real shame they do some day time deals but I have to say I haven't returned to Planet Pizza since they stopped doing the deal. Sorry for the confusion!ReplyDelete
