Mama Cozzi’s Pepperoni & Mozzarella Flatbread

My family has yet to meet an Aldi take and bake pizza we didn’t like. Aldi take and bakes are a nice occasional treat, especially if we happen to be having a busy week or aren’t up to the task of cooking a proper dinner. They also freeze well so we can save them for later.

Everyday take and bake pizzas in the refrigerated aisle at Aldi come in all kinds of varieties, including sausage and pepperoni, supreme, mega meat, five cheese, and even an uncured pepperoni pizza with cauliflower crust. That’s not to mention all the limited-time specialty take and bake pizzas Aldi rotates through its shelves at different times of the year, including a kale and ricotta pizza, a mac and cheese pizza, a green bean casserole pizza, and even a football-shaped pizza.

But the Aldi take and bake selection doesn’t stop at just pizzas. Aldi also sells cheesy breadsticks and a couple of different types of flatbreads with assorted toppings. Here, we’re taking a look at one of the Aldi take and bake flatbread options.

Mama Cozzi's Pepperoni & Mozzarella Flatbread

Mama Cozzi’s Pepperoni & Mozzarella Flatbread cost $5.29 for a 13.1-ounce package. It’s also sold alongside a Southwest Style Chicken Flatbread with BBQ Sauce.

This is a Regular Buy or core range product, so you should be able to find it at Aldi any time of year.

The package describes this pepperoni and mozzarella flatbread as “sliced and diced pepperoni with fresh mozzarella cheese with tomato sauce on a flatbread crust.” It’s made with 100% real cheese.

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

It’s not a health food by any means, but you already know that. It’s loaded with fat, sodium and carbohydrates. One package has three servings. A single serving (124 grams) has 350 calories, 16 grams of total fat (21% DV), 7 grams of saturated fat (35% DV), 740 mg of sodium (32% DV), 35 grams of total carbohydrates (13% DV), 2 grams of total sugars, 1 gram of added sugars (2% DV), and 15 grams of protein.

The package has directions for baking this flatbread in a conventional oven. Place aluminum foil on the bottom rack of the oven to catch toppings that may fall from the flatbread during baking. Then preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Remove the flatbread from its packaging and place the thawed flatbread on the center rack of the oven. (I opted to skip the foil and baked my flatbread on a baking sheet.) Do not bake the flatbread on the cardboard tray it came packaged with. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until the cheese in the center is melted and the crust is golden. Carefully remove from the oven and let cool for 2-3 minutes before slicing.

This baked up nicely in my oven. I served it alongside the barbecued chicken flatbread also from Aldi, and I made it a complete meal with a side salad. My family liked the balls of mozzarella that melted into gooey globs during baking, and this has a good tomato sauce and a decent amount of pepperoni. This is a nice option if you want something that isn’t quite a traditional pizza.

The Verdict:

Mama Cozzi’s Pepperoni & Mozzarella Flatbread is sold alongside the take and bake pizzas in the deli section at Aldi. It’s a nice combination of thin bread similar to a pizza, along with tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni.

  1. I picked up one of these a few weeks ago. I don’t usually like uncooked pizzas with pre-baked crusts, but my father has been eating less bread.
    It worked great for him and I found it surprisingly good. The flavors and quality of the sauce and toppings were really good. It was not at all the prepared supermarket low quality I was expecting.

    I will admit, I did top it with onions and additional pepperoni before baking.

  2. We tried two of the Aldi regular take and bake pizzas last week, the 5 cheese and the supreme. Extremely disappointing – the crust was like eating cardboard. Would not buy again or recommend.

  3. This is our favorite Aldi “pizza” product. It bakes up perfectly and if there are leftover slices it reheats very well. Sometimes we add more mozzarella balls and banana peppers.

  4. I like this one because I can cut it into thirds with my kitchen shears and bake one piece at a time in my toaster oven. I put the other two slices in a freezer zipper bag and store them for another day. I actually do that with the Mac and Cheese pizzas when they have them too.

    • Great idea! It’s nice to be able to slice and freeze these pizzas and flatbreads in the portion sizes you need. You can’t do that as easily with pizzas that are sold frozen.
