Super Pizza for the Super Bowl

January 31st, 2008 · 2 Comments

I’ve always like the Costco pizza, even before they made it ‘artisan’. But, I must admit, it’s even better now.

My one complaint used to be that it was way too large at 18″ in diameter. It was hard to fit in our oven at home and the pieces were so big they were hard to handle when you were trying to eat. But now, they’ve scaled it back a little to 16″ in diameter, which is perfect. It’s still a good sized pizza and you definitely don’t feel like you are being cheated for the $9.99 cost.

What other changes did they make? Well, the crust is a little thicker (which means it isn’t as prone to burning) which makes it just a tiny bit less crunchy, but in a good way. They refer to this as their ‘artisan-style’ crust. To me it comes across as more of a hand-tossed crust now, which I prefer. The other change is a new Margherita style pizza is now available in all Costcos. For those of you not in the pizza-know, this means that it comes with the classic toppings of fresh tomato slices, whole basil leaves, and generous slices of fresh mozzarella, and provolone cheese, in addition to a pesto-pizza sauce mixture. The other topping choice that is available at all Costcos is the Meat Lovers. This pizza comes with pepperoni, salami, Italian sausage and crumbled meatballs, along with mozzarella and provolone cheese.

Over the last couple of weekends (during the playoffs), my husband and I tried both of these pizzas. They’re both really excellent, and I’ll reiterate, for the price of $9.99, they can’t be beat. My favorite though, is the Margherita pizza. There’s just something about the bubbly fresh mozzarella and the fresh basil that can’t be beat.

You can find the pizzas in the Deli section of the warehouse. And again, they’re only $9.99. Really, it’s a no-brainer.

    The Margherita pizza must be named after my aunt? Wonder if she would one the next time I visit! She always covers her pizza in jalapenos.
