Mama Cozzi’s Thin Crust Chipotle Cheddar with Beef Pizza

There are certain products Aldi seems to sell in abundance. Snack foods, for instance. Or cheese. Or pizzas.

The discount grocer sells a wide range of pizzas, from frozen pizzas to take and bake deli pizzas to limited-edition pizzas. Some of my family’s favorites include tavern style pizza, artisan style crust pizza, stuffed crust pizza, crispy pan pizza, and any of the take and bake pizzas. They’re great for busy weeknights when we have activities going on and need something quick to eat. They’re also good on weekends when we want to relax and maybe eat dinner while we watch a movie at home.

During a recent Aldi run, I spotted some spicy pizzas in the Aldi Find freezer aisle. They included a buffalo-style pizza and a chipotle-style pizza. I picked up the chipotle pizza.

Mama Cozzi's Chipotle Cheddar with Beef Pizza

Mama Cozzi’s Pizza Kitchen Thin Crust Zesty Chipotle Cheddar with Beef Pizza cost $4.99 for a 14.8-ounce pizza at the time of publication. The package describes this as “crust topped with chipotle cheddar sauce, jalapeno & green peppers, white onions, low-moisture mozzarella & white cheddar cheeses, cooked Mexican-style beef crumbles and cooked beef topping.”

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

Nutrition information and ingredients. (Click to enlarge.)

One pizza serves about three. One serving has 330 calories, 17 grams of total fat (22% DV), 8 grams of saturated fat (40% DV), 750 mg of sodium (33% DV), 28 grams of total carbohydrates (10% DV), 2 grams of total sugars, and no added sugars (or at least not enough to count in the nutrition panel).

To bake this pizza, preheat a conventional oven to 425 degrees. Remove the pizza from packaging. Place the pizza directly on the center rack of your pre-heated oven. (I put the pizza on a special pizza pan instead.) Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the edges of the crust are golden brown.

The pizza after baking.

This pizza is medium spicy, maybe a little more than medium if you happen to bite into an especially potent piece of jalapeno. You can tell it’s spicy just from the smell as it bakes in the oven. It’s like a cheeseburger pizza with plenty of beef crumbles and cheddar and mozzarella cheeses, with the addition of jalapeno and green peppers. My teen who loves spicy foods enjoyed this pizza. We ate this with a little bit of ranch dressing on the side for dipping, to help cut the spiciness.

This is probably too spicy for me to buy on a regular basis, but it was a fun pizza to try, and it’s a solid choice if you like food with kick.

The Verdict:

Mama Cozzi’s Chipotle Cheddar with Beef Pizza features a thin crust topped with spicy cheese sauce, jalapeno and green peppers, onions, mozzarella and cheddar cheeses, and beef crumbles. It’s a variation on a cheeseburger pizza, but with spice. This has a medium spice level and might be too much for some people. If you like spicy, food, though, this is a good pizza.
