I know there have been people who raved about the grocery store Aldi for years. We would shop there for milk, eggs, pasta, and some of their gluten-free stuff for my son but I was never a really huge fan f it. I figured we lived in a small area so we didn’t probably get some of the products others were talking about.
I have definitely changed my feelings towards Aldi. I don’t know if they stepped up their game here or if it has always been this way but we are choosing more and more of their products over the local grocery store. We now buy goat cheese at Aldi – $1.99 for 5 ounces versus $4.69 at our local grocery store. I was skeptical at first but it was just as good as the higher prices cheese. So, now we buy blocks of Parmesan cheese, half and half, butter, and sour cream too. Most of our dairy now comes from Aldi at about a third of the price. I hate to say it but I am an Aldi convert.
Just to note, you do have to keep an eye on prices because sometimes the prices sneak up for a week or two and items may be on sale for less at your local store versus the Aldi price. We had this happen with eggs the other week when they jumped from $.49 a dozen to $.99 a dozen and the local store had them on sale for $.69 a dozen. So, keep your eyes on the prices.
We bought the fresh Mozzarella for this pizza from Aldi. The cost was 1/2 of the local grocery store and my family didn’t even notice the difference.
Pizza Margherita is simple, basic. Tomatoes or sauce, fresh cheese (just a little bit) and fresh basil make the Italian flag – red, white, and green pizza. Use the best ingredients you can to get the best flavor from the pizza!
