A Review of Mama Cozzi's Original Pizza Crusts From Aldi

Updated on October 1, 2017

This is a review of Mama Cozzi's Original Italian-Style ready-made pizza crust from Aldi. I bought this pack of two pizza crusts in February 2012 for just under $3.

They appear to be a fairly new item, as I shop Aldi every week and had not seen them prior to this.

We decided to use the pizza crusts the same day I bought them. So I heated the oven to 425 degrees as specified on the package, covered the top of the crusts with a light coating of spaghetti sauce, and placed my toppings on as the oven heated.

Pizza is a fantastic food as you can use just about any ingredients to top it, but I went fairly traditional and used pepperoni and spinach on one and meatballs and onions on the other.

I covered both pizzas with a generous amount of mozzarella cheese (also from Aldi) and put the pizzas directly on the oven rack, as the package suggests.

Then I waited 9 minutes, as the package says to bake anywhere from 7 to 10 minutes, depending on how crispy you like the crust.

Here are the pizzas baking, at about minute six. They look pretty good, don't they?

Unfortunately, the best word I can use to describe the finished product is 'bland'.The crust wasn't offensive or anything, but these were extremely basic crusts and my toppings weren't enough to really make the pizzas pop.

The bread was light, but not chewy, and reminded me of a very well-shaped Bisquick crust, but with less salt.

I would suggest using these crusts if you're going to make a pizza where you want the crust to be practically invisible both in texture and flavor (such as a dessert pizza).

Otherwise, save them for the kids. The fact that these crusts cost about a buck and a half apiece was a definite plus, but they provide little to no actual flavor to the finished pizza.

        For the price or less than $5 you cant get a large pizza, which I think with the taste and all is pretty darn good. I usually like to add my own topics on the 4 cheese pizza. You cant beat this pizza for the price

        My son and family have traveled to Europe so are relatively picky about pizza. I was pleasantly surprised that they liked Mama Cozzi's pizza crust. I added mozzarella and turkey pepperoni. For the price, it's hard to give a negative comment.

        We bought a Mamma Cozzi Foccacia Meat Trio pizza. Cooked it tonight and what did I find in the midst of it? A CURLY HAIR which appeared to be pubic or from a beard. So damned disgusting. Turns my stomach.

        I can't find where Mama Cozzi pizza is made. Distributed from Batavia , Il. Just seems odd, not on the box or any web site that I have been able to find.

        You're welcome!

        It's too bad, isn't it? Most Aldi food is very good. But people who enjoy Bisquick crusts should enjoy this product very much.

        Too bad they didn't taste that good they look great. At the beginning of your hub I was thinking I would get me some of those until I read the part about being bland.

        Thanks for letting us know how it all went.

        Thanks for commenting!

        Aldi really is a little known gem for groceries. They've come a long way since the 1980s!

        I'm finding out more and more about good old Aldi's. They have recently begun to crop up where I live and I make them part of my shopping experience.

        The quality on some things are great and half the cost of the traditional markets.

        Thanks for the information on the pizza crust.
