Pizza - Perhaps the greatest food invention ever and I don't know about you, but I don't know anybody that does NOT like pizza..... I usually have a fr0zen pizza or two in my freezer for those times when I'm craving pizza, but don't want to take the time to make one from scratch, let alone shell out $20 for delivery.
Today I'm reviewing Mama Cozzi's Pizza Kitchen, Combo Pizza which I picked up at my neighborhood Aldi store. Mama Cozzi pizzas are popular with Aldi shoppers, with a variety of frozen and take-and-bake pizzas available.
The Combo Pizza features pepperoni and sausage. To me that's not really a 'Combo' pizza, it's just a pepperoni and sausage pizza. In my eyes, a combo pizza has more than two toppings and would include a veggie or two.
From the Mama Cozzi's frozen pizza label:
- Original thin, artificial preservative free crust
- Made with real cheese
- Pepperoni made with pork, chicken and beef
- Sausage made with pork and chicken
- Great for grilling
Not exactly generous in topping portions, this pizza lacks flavor. The pepperoni, made with pork, chicken and beef, is not the real stuff, void of a robust flavor you get with a true pepperoni. The plus side, it wasn't greasy like some of the fake pepperoni you can get on a bargain price pizza. The sausage has the same problem, lacking flavor from a lack of seasoning. The crust was bland and approached the cardboard arena. The sauce was "eh." A saving grace, the cheese was good and melted nice.
Priced at under $3, I'm giving Mama Cozzi's Combo Pizza 3 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars. It's an "eh" pizza and there are better frozen pizzas out there for about the same price.
