been addicted to pizzas lately. don’t laugh at me, but the pizza i’ve been addicted to is costco’s pizza.
yeah, it’s low rent, but i like it.
being a semi-aficionado of the tomato pie, i’ve had a few great slices in my gastronomical history. i think costco’s pie can stand up to many as a really good utility pizza. no joke. friends of mine have also had costco’s (née price club) slice and came away with similar opinions. way better than pizza hut/domino’s/papa john’s, i think.
it’s a substantial slice for $1.99 + tax. by substantial, i mean they cut an 18″ pie into six slices. you get one of those slices after you pay. (it’s cut differently if you order the whole thing.) for most people, one slice is enough for a lunch portion. two slices for lunch will satisfy about 97% of the population. any more than that you should just order the whole thing and take the leftover home for dinner. (quite a few folks do.) don’t quote me on this; i think there’s only one size available for sale. three varieties only: cheese, pepperoni, or combo. i like pepperoni the best; i don’t like a bunch of stuff on my slice. (old school, baby! yeah!)
surprisingly, the crust on this pizza is above average, in my opinion. sauce is decent too. plus, you don’t need a membership to eat there; most of the locations have outdoor food areas, meaning any hungry stomach can belly up to the counter and order away. (and a belly you’ll have, after you dine.)
judging by the crowd that’s almost always there (minus the bad weather days), i’m not the only one that enjoys it.
cheap but good. can’t beat that.
did i mention that their hot dogs are really good too? not just decent, but really good. two choices: regular or polish sausage. for $1.50 + tax, you get a dog AND a drink w/ free refills. the dog is pretty substantial as well. ahh. cheap eats are awesome.
