Take and Bake Pizza and Why I Love It

My love of take and bake pizza goes back to my childhood. We lived in the country, far from a pizza place, so it was always a treat when my mom would bring home a take and bake pizza after making a trip to the city for a doctors appointment or shopping.

When ALDI contacted me a few weeks ago about trying their take and bake deli pizza I knew I had to say yes. Not only do I love take and bake pizza, I love ALDI. And of course pizza is my son’s favorite meal. Isn’t it every 12 year old’s favorite meal?

Take and bake pizza is a favorite for my son and he loves it when I buy one for dinner. Three in my family eat gluten free and I often make homemade gluten free pizza. But take and bake pizza works great for us too because I can make gluten free pizza for those that need it and at the same time my husband and son can easily have a gluten filled pizza that they can enjoy too.

We have tried a lot of take and bake type pizzas over the years, but I had never bought an ALDI take and bake deli pizza. My family can be a little picky when it comes to pizza, so I was curious what they would think.

My son loves pepperoni pizza. It is his favorite kind, so I stuck to the basic pepperoni pizza for $5.99 when I bought it, but ALDI offers quite a few varieties in this basic price range.

My husband and son were impressed with this pizza. And I am not just saying that because I got free pizza. They really did enjoy it. My husband said I should definitely buy it again. And next time they want to try some of the other flavors.

You all know I love homemade, but sometimes you just need a night off and take and bake pizza is an easy way to have a night off cooking. And this take and bake pizza is much cheaper than the drive thru. For the price and the flavor I think the ALDI take and bake deli pizzas are a great deal, especially for those busy days.

They have basic pizzas like supreme, sausage, cheese, and pepperoni, but they also have some special buy pizzas coming up over the next few months so watch for those too.

And I can’t talk about ALDI without talking about gluten free. Which I know is about as opposite of take and bake pizza as you can get. But I am thrilled that I have been able to find a lot of gluten free food at ALDI over the last few months. I love that they are carrying gluten free options. So if you live near and ALDI and are gluten free, or know someone that is gluten free, be sure to look for their gluten free foods. We have been happy with the ones we have tried so far.

  1. We bought it once and my girls liked it also. I’d buy it again in a pinch. Although they have gluten free items, I still can not eat them for some of it is made with corn and dairy.

    • We have the same trouble with some of the because of the nuts and peanuts. But the ones we have been able to try we have really enjoyed.

  2. I loved ALDI when we lived in Pennsylvania. None here in Washington, and I really miss it!

  3. My family loves the take & bakes from Aldi. We get one just about every week cuz’ its so convenient and taste good!!

  4. Here’s a question for you, Lynn… what have you learned about their tree-nut/peanut policies at ALDI? Sometimes I am hesitant to buy pre-packaged/pre-made items because of cross contamination. What has your experience been?

    • I have not been able to find out much on that. My daughter with the nut allergy avoids most of the things that would have cross contamination. We do buy the gf cereals, pretzels, and other things that are nut free, but she avoids them mostly due to that risk.The rest of the family eats them, just not her. I read all labels to be sure they are nut free, because like any brand they sometimes put them in things you don’t expect. I do buy their canned beans, tomatoes, and things like that and we have been fine, but those don’t have the cross contamination risk that something like a cereal, granola bar, etc. does Many of their gf crackers, granola, bars etc contain nuts or sesame, so I think many items would be risky for someone with a nut allergy. We did find one of their gluten free cereals that was also labeled nut free and she ate that and was fine. I am not sure that helped or not in answering your question though. :-)
