Mama Cozzi’s Heart Shaped Pizza

Last Updated on February 14, 2023

Aldi is a one-stop shop to get all your Valentine’s Day supplies. Whether you want Valentine cards for a child to pass out to classmates and friends, flowers and chocolates for your significant other, or a special meal with pasta, steak, seafood, or dessert, the discount grocer has you covered. Aldi sells everything you need to celebrate this Hallmark holiday on a budget.

For the last few years, Aldi has even sold heart-shaped pizzas for Valentine’s Day. Usually, these have been take and bake pizzas that Aldi stocks for a limited time in the refrigerated aisle near all the other take and bake pizzas.

This year, Aldi is also selling a frozen heart-shaped pizza in addition to selling a refrigerated take and bake heart pizza. I found this frozen heart-shaped pizza alongside some frozen football-shaped pizzas sold in advance of the Super Bowl.

Mama Cozzi's Heart Shaped Pizza

Mama Cozzi’s Heart Shaped Pizza cost $5.79 for a 12-ounce pizza at the time of publication. The package describes this as having “flavor typical of stone-baked pizza with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese.” This is a product of Italy.

This is an Aldi Find, so it’s only in stores for a short time. Each store receives one shipment, and after that sells out, this pizza is gone unless Aldi decides to bring it back next year. Aldi does not offer online ordering for products that are not in stock at your local store.

This is sold under the Mama Cozzi’s brand. This is not a company. Instead, it’s the private label Aldi uses for pizzas.

If you’re watching out for allergens, this contains wheat, milk, and soy.

The rest of the ingredients are pretty simple: wheat flour, mozzarella cheese, water, tomato puree, extra virgin olive oil, salt, yeast, sugar, modified corn starch, and soy flour.

Nutrition information, ingredients, and baking directions. (Click to enlarge.)

One pizza has three 113-gram servings. One serving has 260 calories, 9 grams of total fat (12% DV), 4 grams of saturated fat (20% DV), 650 mg of sodium (28% DV), 34 grams of total carbohydrates (12% DV), and no added sugars (or at least not enough added sugars to count in the nutrition facts).

The box has directions for baking this in a conventional oven. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Remove the pizza from the freezer once the oven has reached 400 degrees. Remove the pizza from the packaging and place the pizza on the center rack of the oven. Bake for 17-20 minutes or until cheese is bubbling. Let the pizza stand for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

Pizza after baking. Pay no attention to the old baking sheet.

I pulled this from the oven after about 14-15 minutes, so I know it wasn’t overbaked. Still, the crust edges on this pizza turned out on the hard side. If I’d realized how hard the crust would be, I might have taken it out of the oven a couple of minutes earlier.

I served this alongside the take and bake heart-shaped pizza from Aldi, and while everyone was quick to eat the entire take and bake pizza, we had a few edge pieces of this frozen pizza left over by the end of dinner time.

The toppings are fine. It’s a basic cheese pizza with tomato sauce. Maybe it wasn’t a fair competition because I served this with the take and bake heart-shaped pizza from Aldi that is much more flavorful and has a better crust, but it’s fine. This was a decent pizza for a Friday night family meal, but we weren’t wowed enough to want to buy it again.

The Verdict:

Mama Cozzi’s Heart Shaped Pizza is a new limited-edition frozen pizza Aldi is stocking for Valentine’s Day. It features tomato sauce and cheese toppings, and it’s a decent frozen pizza. My family prefers the refrigerated take and bake heart-shaped pizza at Aldi over this frozen pizza, which had a harder crust. It’s not a bad little frozen pizza, though.
