Whoever said you can’t have your pizza and eat a cookie too clearly hasn’t visited Aldi lately. Nestled among the aisles of budget-friendly finds and quirky snacks, a new star has emerged from Mama Cozzi’s Pizza Kitchen, and it’s not your typical tomato sauce and cheese affair. Allow me to introduce the culinary curveball that’s been sending waves of excitement across the internet: the “Pizza Cookie.” And guess what? It’s not just any cookie—it’s a chocolate chunk-laden sensation that’s ready to take your dessert game to a whole new level, all for the wallet-friendly price of $3.99.
Now, before you rush off to Aldi (which, let’s be honest, you’re probably planning to do anyway), let’s dive into what makes this treat the talk of the town. Unlike its savory namesake, this pizza-sized cookie isn’t meant to be shared. Okay, who are we kidding? You could share it, but after one bite of its gooey, chocolatey goodness, you might not want to. The buzz around this nine-ounce behemoth of sweetness started with a post from @theamazingaldi on Instagram, and it wasn’t long before TikTok users were scoring it a whopping “1000/10.” Talk about setting the dessert bar high!
The internet’s response? Utter pandemonium, in the best way. Comments have been pouring in with folks marveling at Aldi’s knack for surprises and others marking their calendars for an Aldi run. The recipe for turning this sizable snack into a melty masterpiece is simple: preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit, cozy it up on the middle rack while still in its tin, and give it a warm-up for about three minutes. Patience, dear cookie enthusiasts, is a virtue here. Let it cool for a moment or two before diving in.
But why stop there? To truly ascend to dessert heaven, crown your pizza cookie with a scoop of your favorite ice cream. Drawing inspiration from BJ’s Brewhouse & Restaurant’s iconic pizookie, one savvy TikToker inquired, “What’s a pizookie without a scoop of ice cream on top?” Indeed, what is it but a missed opportunity for bliss?
In true Aldi fashion, the pizza cookie isn’t the only gem waiting to be discovered. With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, Aldi plans to woo us further with heart-shaped pizzas, because nothing says “I love you” quite like a pizza in the shape of a heart. These delightful creations are part of Aldi’s “Finds” from Jan. 31 to Feb. 6, so mark your calendars.
And for those gearing up for the Super Bowl, Aldi’s got your back with a 25% discount on “game day must-haves,” including the unbeatable trio of guacamole, wavy chips, and, of course, more pizza. These deals are up for grabs from Jan. 31 to Feb. 13, ensuring your game day spread is both delicious and budget-friendly.
So, whether you’re in it for the pizza, the cookie, or the sheer joy of discovering what Aldi has up its sleeve next, one thing is for sure: the Pizza Cookie has become a legend in its own right, proving once again that when it comes to surprises, Aldi is a game-changer. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a date with a nine-ounce cookie and a tub of ice cream.
