      Mama Cozzi’s Stone Baked Veggie Pizza is sold for just two dollars and ninety-nine cents at ALDI Food Market stores. The price of this pizza may cause people to wonder what they’re getting for less than three dollars, and really, I don’t think this pizza compares to the more expensive, name-brand pizzas with vegetable toppings, but it’s not a bad budget item for those that are trying or need to stretch their dollars further. As a vegetable pizza, it’s kind of lacking, because there aren’t any olives, there aren’t any

      mushrooms or chunks of tomatoes. Vegetable pizzas with more different kinds of vegetables can be bought from name brand companies that sell their products in stores like Walmart and Target. Again though, as a budget pizza, this one really isn’t too bad.

      On the pizza comes spinach, which can be hard to spot and taste because there isn’t a whole lot of it, but when it is found, it has a fairly strong and pleasant flavor as well as a not too soggy texture. Then there is a reasonably plentiful mixture ...


      • of red and green peppers, which have a really good flavor to them, but unfortunately, aren’t too very crispy. The red onions didn’t have much flavor, but they offered the crunch that the peppers were lacking. Lastly, the zucchini came across as being the best tasting vegetable topping on this pizza. It really stood out and the pieces were big. I definitely feel the zucchini was the strongest quality of this pizza. Aside from the vegetable toppings, the other aspects of the pizza were okay, but nothing special. The mozzarella
        cheese was tasty, but the thin layer of tomato sauce was insufficient and the pizza tasted somewhat dried out. The crust was tasteless and thin, and at times, hard to bite into.

        There are certainly better tasting pizzas out there, but considering the pizza is less than three dollars, the value is there to an extent. I probably won’t buy it again, but I can’t say I tossed any of it in the garbage. It’s a decent pizza if you’re on a budget, but if not, there are better options out there.

    Any pizza from Aldi is bland tasting. The pizza does not have the quality flavors in the sauce and the veggies does not make up for it. It has been a while since I`d bought an Aldi brand pizza. I would rather spend more money in a name brand pizza than save money on a Aldi brand pizza

    Some of the pizzas sold at ALDI are less than spectacular, but I’ve purchased both pepperoni and combo pizzas from the store and enjoyed them. I can say the same about certain varieties of name brand pizzas being bland. It just tends to vary what is on the pizza that tends to either make the pizza flavorful or lacking. If you’re not happy with the pizzas sold at ALDI, then shopping elsewhere is fortunately an available option.

    Aldi food scares me. It is low budget and low quality. There are so many additives, preservatives, and synthetics added to food nowadays.

    Most food nowadays is loaded with additives, preservatives and synthetics, regardless of where one shops. Companies do what they can to make this stuff the cheapest way possible in order to make the most money they can. The only way around it is to cook at home using your own ingredients or buy organic food. Not everyone has the time to hand-pick the safest (health wise) ingredients and prepare their own food and not everyone can afford the healthier and thus pricier foods and organic items. ALDI offers solutions to those on a budget and while some of the food there may be worse health wise than say at Walmart or Target, some of it may be better or equal in quality. Unfortunately, we still live in a world where we sometimes have to do what’s not in our best interest (eating foods that have lots of additives and stuff) in them in order to get by. I disagree with ALDI food being low quality, because in general, a majority of the products look and taste as good as the name brand items and are no worse for a person. There are exceptions, yes, but for the most part, ALDI is a great solution for those on a budget and isn’t more so of a threat to a person’s health than other grocery stores.

    Aldi’s food is good why would it scare you and its not low budget or low quality. it happens to be good because people go there to buy the food so they can eat it when they get home and also perservatives are good for you and there are not any synthetics added to food so stop complaining

    Choosing natural foods and certifiably organic foods is the healthiest way to go, and admittedly, ALDI doesn’t carry that big of a natural foods/organic foods selection. There is food sold at ALDI that has artificial flavorings and colorings, but you’re going to find food like under name brands, too. The more money you have, and the more informed you are, the better food choices you can make, but it’s possible to make good food choices at ALDI without spending a lot of money.

    I am extremely satisfied with the selection of natural/organic foods at Aldi’s. —-and it seems that each visit there is more offered. I can now even get Organic milk and yogurt.The list goes on and on. The only complaint I have is the produce from Mexico of which I do not buy. My other more “expensive” food stores also have Mexican produce.

    CirclingCanvas replies :

    Aldi tends to have an extended selection of natural and organic foods around January every year, in addition to what is carried throughout or for short periods of time throughout the year. It’s not easy for Aldi to offer a variety of organic and natural foods, I imagine, considering one of the draws is low prices and the organic and natural foods tend to cost more money, but it’s nice having that option at Aldi As for the produce from Mexico… it seems a lot of stores import their produce from Mexico. I imagine it’s cheaper. All you can really do is shop around to see if you can find a store that doesn’t sell Mexican produce. If you have a Central Market store near you, you may want to stop in there and see where their produce comes from because that chain has pretty high quality, although admittedly more expensive, products.

    Aldi food is not low quality. The German parent company is very strict about the quality of the foods they offer. Aldi is one of the main groceries in Europe. I love their cereals which match or beat the quality and taste of our own brand name cereals. Yes, there are a few misses here and there as there are with any brand, but over all, you will get more than your money’s worth shopping at Aldi.

    CirclingCanvas replies :

    I feel this way, too. I think what fuels the perception that the food sold at Aldi is low quality is the combination of relatively unknown brand names and the low prices. However, a lot of what one can find “wrong” with the food sold at Aldi, can find wrong with name brands, too, like artificial flavors and colors, plus preservatives. Just be a smart shopper and read the labels at Aldi like at other stores, and you can make informed, healthy choices, but at least when you do that at Aldi, you save money, too I continue to feel that Aldi is one of the best shopping options out there.

    As a student I visit the Aldi frequently because I have not much money to spend. Those pizza’s taste quite well for their price.

    ALDI is a good place to shop whether you’re on a budget or just want to be a smart shopper and keep a little more money in your pocket after grocery shopping. Not all the products carried in their stores are worth their price, but a majority of them are, and while there may be instances where you might try something and say, “I’ve had better,” as long as what you’ve purchased was worth how much you paid, then that’s still a good thing. ALDI sometimes makes it possible for customers to buy alternatives to products that they wouldn’t be able to afford at other stores, and while the quality might not always be as high, it’s usually decent and it beats not being able to have that particular item, period.

    I have never had zucchini on pizza. I will have to try this soon. I wonder if they’ll make an eggplant pizza.

    CirclingCanvas replies :

    If you like zucchini, give it a try You never know, you might find zucchini to go well with pizza I don’t recall seeing pizza with eggplant as a topping at any stores I shop at, but, I do know there are a number of recipes online that outline how you can make eggplant a prime ingredient in pizza. If you’re handy in the kitchen, you might want to give one of these recipes a shot

    Feeding 3 kids on a tight budget, I often get this type of pizza. Is it great? No… but it does fit in with our budget and is easy to fix. Some nights you just do not have the energy to cook a full dinner. I use other toppings and herbs to try to enhance the flavor. It doesn’t add too much to the cost and is still cheaper than the more expensive name brands.

    CirclingCanvas replies :

    Exactly. I wouldn’t use the word “great” to describe the pizzas, either, but you’ve got the right idea. At Aldi, you can buy fresh produce and other foods for pizza toppings at a cheaper price than other stores, making it affordable and easy to spruce up these budget pizzas a little. It’s harder than ever to raise a family, what with the rising cost of living and shrinking, less accessible job market, so shopping at Aldi when watching the pennies does make a difference

    We shop at Aldi quite a bit and have found the Mama Cozzi’s brand to be as good or better than national and store brands found at other retailers. My husband likes frozen pizza, I am not as big a fan, but I buy Mama Cozzi’s pizzas for him regularly and the times I’ve eaten it I didn’t see any real difference. No matter what brand I buy I always buy extra cheese to put on it so I just don’t see much of a difference. Aldi products to me seem to be just as good as anyplace else, their produce is usually priced much better than the competition, and they always have interesting gifts and small kitchen appliances in the center aisle at good prices as well.

    The quality of Aldi’s frozen pizzas, overall, is decent for the money they cost. I’m sure you can find better tasting frozen pizzas elsewhere, but it all comes down to how much money you have to spend. For budget shopping needs, Aldi makes it possible to enjoy a nice variety of different kinds of pizza at a price that’s affordable, As you said, you can always buy stuff at Aldi and add as additional toppings to the pizzas to give them that bit added flavor. Sometimes, living on a budget inspires great bouts of creativity

    I frequently buy pizzas from Aldi. The three cheese thick crust pizza makes a tasty meal.

    CirclingCanvas replies :

    I definitely feel that there are flavorful choices down every aisle at Aldi. Some people believe because these aren’t name brand products, the quality simply won’t be there, and yes, there are some products at Aldi that have fallen short of my expectations, but as you said, a tasty meal can be had with food from Aldi

    CirclingCanvas replies :

    Quality is in the eye of the beholder, ultimately. Everyone has their own opinion of what is considered quality and what’s not. Some people assume that just because Aldi sells items for less and the item has an off-brand name that these items are automatically inferior to the more expensive, name brand items. My opinion on the matter is people should make up their own minds. Try the products for themselves. The whole don’t judge a book by its cover expression applies to more than just books in life. For those that are on a budget and simply don’t have that much money to spend on grocery and household item shopping, then Aldi is worth checking out in my opinion.
