I’ll keep this short and sweet. No reinventing the wheel here when it comes to the pizza roll. I grabbed the Cheese variety to play it safe with the kids. I followed the convection oven directions when making these (400 degrees F for 8 minutes). Sometimes I forget my oven has that feature, so I like to use it now and then. The outer shell was nice and crispy and the inner filling was gooey and cheesy.  I really liked the sauce too, which was on the sweeter side. I’m not a huge fan of pizza snacks like this, but they are good every now and then and my kids definitely get excited when I cook them. I’d say that these were just as good, if not better than Totinos.

These varieties of Mama Cozzi’s Pizza Snacks will be available while supplies last for $2.49. Similar sized private label pizza snacks at other grocers typically run around $2.99, while name brand run around $3.49. I’ll definitely be going back to get the Buffalo Style Chicken ones for me and Cheese for the kids!

  • Keto: net carbs 26g
    If you are following a ketogenic diet (keto), you need to restrict your daily carbohydrate intake so that your body enters ketosis. For most people, this means less than 50 net carbs per day. Net carbs are calculated by subtracting fiber from total carbs. Example: A product with 26 grams of total carbohydrates and 9 grams of fiber will have 17 grams net carbs. Math equation: 26 - 9 = 17 IMPORTANT: Net carbs are per serving. Make sure you know your serving size or else you may go over your planned intake and exit ketosis.

  • Nice! Less than half tsp of added sugars
    Added sugars are those that are added to foods and are not naturally present. Table sugar and high fructose corn syrup are examples of added sugars. Natural sugars are those found in foods such as lactose in milk. The American Heart Association recommends limiting the amount of added sugars you consume to no more than half of your daily discretionary calories allowance. For women: 100 calories / 6 tsp per day For men: 150 calories: 9 tsp per day More info

  • Contains nitrites/nitrates
    This product contains one or more of the following: - Sodium nitrite - Sodium nitrate - celery powder - celery juice Sodium nitrite and its closely related sodium nitrate are food preservatives used primarily in prepared meat and fish such as ham, bacon, hot dogs, corned beef (spam), luncheon meats, and smoked fish. They help the meat look nice and red instead of grayish. Unfortunately, when cooked or broken down in the stomach, nitrites form nitrosamines (also called N-Nitroso Compound), which can cause cancer in young children and pregnant women.

  • For dieters: FoodPoints value is 6
    * FoodPoints are calculated by Fooducate based on fats, carbs, fiber, and protein. They are not an endorsement or approval of the product or its manufacturer. The fewer points - the better.

  • Puffed up with protein?
    Protein is important, but some of the protein you find in this product isn't exactly natural. The protein comes from one of the following sources: - milk protein concentrate - whey protein isolate - soy protein isolate While it's fine to get some of your protein from supplemented items, keep in mind that they are not "natural" sources and that it's not ideal to get protein only from processed goods. If you're looking for more protein, try beans, quinoa, nuts, seeds, peas and spinach & leafy greens. Not only do they have protein, they're filled with other vitamins and minerals.

  • Controversial additive BHA used
    BHA (Butylated Hydroxyanisole) is a synthetic antioxidant additive. It is used to extend the shelf life of fats, oils, and oil-containing foods, including cereals, gums, and potato chips. The FDA approves it as safe despite the fact that the Department of Health and Human Services considers BHA to be "reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen." Alternatives to BHA are vitamin E or tocopherols, different packaging methods, or simply omitting it.

  • Controversial additive BHT present
    Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) is an additive used to retard rancidity in oils and foods containing oils and fats. Some studies have shown it to be carcinogenic. Best to avoid

  • Highly Processed!
    This product is highly processed. If you'll take a look at its ingredient list, you'll discover new words to add to your vocabulary. Many of these ingredients are required to increase the shelf life of the product and improve the flavor that disappears when food is not fresh.

  • No whole grains here
    Whole grains are a great source of fiber and other nutrients. Fiber is one of the most important nutrients lacking in the modern American diet. Unfortunately, this product does not contain enough whole grains, if any. If there is fiber in here, it's probably added fiber and not naturally occurring. Whole grains are not the only way to consuming fiber, BUT by choosing them instead of processed grains you've made a smart choice. If you'd like to eat a bit better, try for something that contains whole grains.

  • Learn about industrial caramel coloring
    Homemade caramel is made by melting sugar in a saucepan. Brown coloring in sodas and some other products is not the same thing. Industrial caramel coloring is made by reacting sugars with ammonia and sulfites under high pressure and temperatures. The chemical reactions create 4-methylimidazole, which in government-conducted studies caused lung, liver, or thyroid cancer or leukemia in laboratory mice or rats. This is why California recently required foods containing caramel color to be labeled as potential cancer-causing agents. But you won't see this warning label any time soon - manufacturers simply reduced the use of caramel color enough that the labeling requirements no longer applied. Caramel color varies slightly between products - when in beer, sauces or baked goods it has just ammonia and when used in soft drinks, it has both sulfites and ammonia. Neither one is a "good" option. Bottom line: Choose something else, less controversial. More info

  • Learn about corn syrup, found here
    Corn syrup is often used as a sweetener in processed food. It is NOT THE SAME as high fructose corn syrup. Don't be fooled when looking up the amount of sugar a product contains if corn syrup is listed as an ingredient. This is because corn syrup contains 50% sugar, and 50% of another form of carbohydrate known as ""oligosaccharides"", which is pretty close to sugar. If a product has less sugar than you think it should, but contains corn syrup in the ingredient list, you'll know that the missing carbs are those oligosaccharides, not much better. More info

  • Learn about mechanically separated meat
    Mechanically separated meat is manufactured by passing bones leftover after the initial cutting through a high pressure sieve. The resulting paste goes on to become the main ingredient in many a hot dog, bologna, chicken nuggets, pepperoni, salami, and jerky. The industry calls this method AMR – Advanced Meat Recovery. More info

  • Learn about Xanthan Gum, found here
    Xanthan gum is an emulsifier. It helps ingredients blend more effectively and stay blended while waiting on a shelf. For example – water and oil mixtures, as well as bits of spice in a salad dressing. Xanthan Gum is made by fermenting corn sugar with a bacteria, Xanthomonas campestris. It’s the same bacteria that creates black spots on broccoli and cauliflower. The result is a slimy goo that is then dried up and ground into a fine white powder. More info

  • Sodium Aluminum Phosphate
    This product contains sodium aluminum phosphate. Food manufacturers will tell you that this additive is not a problem. And yes, normally, people will have some amount of aluminum in their body by means of inhalation, ingestion or dermal contact. The Department of Health and Human services says most this aluminum will leave your body quickly through feces, and the small amount that enters your bloodstream will leave via urine, but . . . they also say that excess aluminum can cause problems. Some research has implicated aluminum with Alzheimer's and research both supports and refutes this. Doctors blame aluminum of exacerbating the effects of kidney disease and causing bone or brain diseases. Bottom line: There's no tangible benefit of consuming products with sodium aluminum phosphate. To err on the side of safety, particularly with products you consume everyday, choose ones without added aluminum.

    Aldi's New Pizza Snacks Have The Internet Buzzing

    What you're really buying with these cauliflower-crusted pizza rolls is something that's supposed to be good for you, so how healthy are they?

    Well, the bad news, keto dieters, is they're not carb-free. In fact, they're not even particularly low-carb, with 28-29 grams of carbs in a single serving as compared to Totino's 30 grams. The source of the carbs is certainly better, though, since they're made with rice flour and brown rice flour instead of wheat flour (which also makes them gluten-free — another bonus!). As far as calorie count goes, Aldi's cheese pizza rolls have 210 calories and the pepperoni rolls have 230 for a 5-roll serving. By contrast, FatSecret says that Totino's pepperoni rolls have 220 calories for 6.

    So wait, what gives with these snacks if they're not that nutritionally different than the pizza rolls of the past? Well, in case you missed it, they're gluten-free. Also, that cauliflower counts as a daily serving of veggies, doesn't it? There you go, conscience appeased. Now pass the pizza snacks, please.
