Frozen pizzas take up a lot of real estate in every grocery store’s freezer aisle. Even with Aldi’s smaller footprint, frozen pizzas reign supreme: Their chill chests cater to pizza-lovers of all kinds, filling the racks with rising crusts, organic, three-cheese, cheese-stuffed, supreme, margarita, and more. Instead of taking weeks to buy and try every pizza, I filled my quarter-fueled cart with every frozen pizza I could find and tried them all at once. Ultimately, three frozen pizzas stood out as clear, hands-down winners. Let’s take a look.

How I Chose and Tested the Pizzas

Aldi sells pizza in every form, fashion, and flavor imaginable. For this edible experiment, I limited the contenders to frozen pizzas — bypassing the take-and-bake refrigerated varieties. While there were several special-edition “Aldi Finds” pizza varieties in the freezer case, I compared only the pies that are available as part of Aldi’s core grocery offerings. I prepared each pizza according to the package directions and tasted immediately. My family and I tasted our way through more than 15 frozen pizzas. Here are the best three frozen pizzas you can buy at Aldi.

Simply Nature Organic Three Cheese Thin Crust Pizza, $3.99

Cheese-lover frozen pizzas are usually overloaded with gooey gobs of sub-par cheese, but Aldi takes a different approach with their Simply Nature Organic Three Cheese Pizza. This crunchy-crusted pizza is topped with a trio of tasty cheeses — mozzarella, provolone, and Emmental. The cheeses melt together into a single golden layer that delivers an unexpectedly upscale flavor.

Mama Cozzi’s Rising Crust Three Meat Pizza, $2.75

Aldi’s superpower lies in their uncanny ability to replicate beloved name-brand products at a fraction of the price. This rising-crust pizza tastes just like another frozen favorite that touts that “it’s not delivery.” The crust is puffed, chewy, and golden. You can buy this same pizza style in cheese or supreme flavors, but this meat-lover’s variety came out on top. It is covered in a trio of meaty toppings — pepperoni, sausage, and beef crumbles — that make it a hearty meal.

Mama Cozzi’s Margherita Cauliflower Crust Pizza, $4.99

I’ll admit that I was very surprised when a cauliflower pizza earned a top spot on this taste test. The crust is the hardest part for a frozen pizza to get right. This pizza bypasses the usual fault lines of dry, crackery crusts or bland bread-y bases by using a cheesy crust made from cauliflower. The crust bakes up golden, crispy, and full of flavor. The balance of gooey, cheesy topping to crispy crust is just right. You can’t go wrong with either variety Aldi sells — a tomato and basil-topped Margherita variety or the Three Cheese version finished with mozzarella, Asiago, and fontina cheeses.
