While a trip to Italy may be off the cards for now, ALDI and Menulog are bringing Italy to you with ALDI’s new Best Margherita Pizza Ever. Hand stretched dough made in Modena, Italy, then baked in a wood-fired oven, this restaurant quality pizza has been snapped frozen and made available to Aussies for just $4.99 – now that’s amore!
ALDI is so proud of this pizza that for the first time ever, ALDI Australia has partnered with Australian-born delivery service, Menulog, to give Western Sydneysiders a taste of its Best Margherita Pizza Ever – cooked to perfection and delivered to their door for one night only, all for less than $5! Better still, 100% of all sales on the night will go to children’s charity, Camp Quality,
The Best Margherita Pizza Ever is already creating a stir and is on the path to earning a cult-like status with ALDI fans. Based on the elegant simplicity of the original Neapolitan Italian Pizza, the Best Margherita Pizza Ever is made with Italian tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and oregano and basil.
Toppings are only half the story. To achieve a classic wood-fired pizza base, the pizza makers leave the soft wheat flour dough to rest for 24 hours before it is hand-stretched into shape. Coming in at only $0.83 a slice, it’s an incredible price no matter how you cut the (pizza) pie!

Rebecca Hultgren, Buying Director for Frozen Foods, ALDI Australia said, “We ensure all products on our shelf are of the highest quality so customers don’t need to pick and choose when they shop with us. It was important that we created this pizza to be as authentic as possible, so our customers can experience a traditional margherita pizza from the comfort of their home. The quality ingredients, artisan cooking methods and affordable price will no doubt change people’s idea of the “supermarket pizza”.
“With Aussie families eating in more than ever before, we are excited to bring this slice of Italy to our customers’ homes. For those who may have baked one too many loaves of bread while practising social distancing, or perhaps have had one too many baking flops, this pizza is the perfect solution to save time, elbow grease and some dough!”
Menulog Marketing Director, Simon Cheng, added, “Menulog is all about delivering the greatest choice, value and convenience for customers and so we’re really excited to partner with ALDI to bring the ‘Best Margherita Pizza Ever’ to customers for the very first time. We know pizza is one of Australia’s favourite meals to order-in, with margherita being one of the most popular choices of toppings. We’re looking forward to hearing what our Western-Sydney customers think!”
Before we hear those of you who live a little too far from Western Sydney cry “Mamamia!”, the Best Margherita Pizza Ever is available in the frozen food aisle of your local ALDI store. Just add garlic bread and a bottle of vino for an affordable taste of Italy right from the comfort of your home.
