Napolina Large Pizza Bases

HK$38.50 for 300 grams, Gourmet

This two-pack of pizza crusts from Italy makes whipping up a weeknight pie a breeze. Spread on toppings, bake at 200 degrees Celsius in an oven for 10 minutes and dinner is served.

Verdict: surprisingly light and crispy, and does not overpower toppings or leave you feeling bloated.

Marks & Spencer Soft Flour Tortillas

HK$32 for 400 grams, Marks & Spencer

Tortillas are a quick meal staple: spread on whatever you fancy, roll or fold and eat. Perfect for fajitas, enchiladas, burritos and quesadillas. There are eight pieces in this pack, each with 145 calories and two grams of fat.

Verdict: light and slightly chewy; as good as any we've sampled at a Mexican restaurant.

Old Time Bakery Gluten Free Wraps

HK$75 for 250 grams, City'super

These high-fibre organic wraps from Australia work for people with food intolerances to gluten, yeast, wheat, lactose or nuts because none of these ingredients are used. There are four pieces in each pack.

Verdict: dry, leathery texture and tastes of cardboard. Difficult to stomach more than one bite.
