A search for Aldi’s frozen pizza on its website reveals a sad truth: no pizzas are priced under $3 any longer. The most inexpensive pizzas are the thin crusts, now $3.85. The stuffed crust pizzas are $7.69, and the rising crust pizzas that Reddit is frustrated about are priced at $5.49. Despite the price hike, there were also many who thought $5.49 was still better than the other grocery stores. When one person wrote on the subreddit that the pizza was no longer worth it, someone responded with “Look I get it. But what else are you getting for $5 that’s better? Or more? Still an alright deal.”
As of yet, Aldi hasn’t given any reason for the frozen pizza price hikes. For those wary of rising costs, it may be wise to look to other ways to save more money at Aldi. Keeping an eye on the weekly ad flyer, avoiding name-brand products, exploring the Aldi Find aisle, and keeping an eye out for Aldi’s red stickers for more bargains. But as others have pointed out, $5.49 is still a pretty good price for a frozen pizza, especially compared to Aldi’s rivals.
