Aldi’s has a wide variety of frozen pizzas. My experience has been that they’re more successful with thin or flat pizza crusts. Their thick-crusted pizzas tend to be doughy and flavorless.
My favorite Aldi’s pizza is the Stonebaked Garlic Cheese flatbread pizza, but they’ve been out of it since winter, so I decided to give the Mediterranean style flatbread pizza a try. It’s described as “flatbread topped with tomato, spinach, red pepper, red onion, artichoke, black olives and a blend of Mozzarella, Provolone, Feta, Parmesan, Romano and Asiago cheeses.”
I put the pizza in the toaster oven at 425 degrees for about fourteen minutes, and it came out crispy and browned. I expected it would taste a bit funky because of the cheeses, especially feta, parmesan, and asiago. I also expected to taste the vegetables. Oddly, the overwhelming flavor is…lemon. Sure enough, one of the listed ingredients is dehydrated lemon juice. It’s an unusual flavor for pizza, but, surprisingly, it’s not bad.
The pizza says it has three servings, but normal eaters will likely get two satisfying servings. The entire pizza has 810 calories, and the cost is approximately $3.99. Additional nutritional information is available here.
Because of the odd flavor profile, this will never be my favorite pizza, but I can see getting in the occasional mood for ‘lemon pizza.’
Four out of five stars.
