Is Costco’s Pizza Actually Good? Here’s What Shoppers Think

Costco’s pizza has been a staple of the warehouse store for years, but is it actually any good? We asked shoppers to weigh in on the quality of Costco’s pizza and here’s what they had to say.

The Pros

Many shoppers praised the quality of Costco’s pizza, noting that it was surprisingly good for a store-bought pizza. One shopper said, “I was really surprised at how good the pizza was. It was really flavorful and the crust was nice and crispy.” Another said, “I love the fact that it’s so affordable and it tastes really good. I always get it when I’m at Costco.”

The Cons

Not all shoppers were as impressed with Costco’s pizza. Some noted that the pizza was a bit greasy and the crust was a bit too thick. One shopper said, “The pizza is okay, but it’s a bit greasy and the crust is too thick for my taste.” Another said, “The pizza is okay, but it’s not the best. I’d rather get something else if I’m looking for a good pizza.”

The Verdict

Overall, shoppers seem to be split on the quality of Costco’s pizza. While some shoppers praised the pizza for its flavor and affordability, others noted that it was a bit greasy and the crust was too thick. Ultimately, it seems that whether or not you like Costco’s pizza will depend on your personal preference.

Alongside the famous $1.50 hotdog combo and $4.99 rotisserie chicken, Costco’s food court pizza is arguably one of the most beloved deals among fans of the warehouse club.

Shoppers can get slices à la carte for $1.99, or buy whole, 18-inch pies for less than $10. Overall, the cost and convenience of Costco food court pizza is hard to beat, especially after a long grocery run and on lazy weeknights where cooking is the last thing on your mind.

But the alluring price point aside, Costco shoppers recently found themselves considering an intriguing question: Is Costco’s pizza actually good?

A member posed this query in a Reddit post this week, asking if the draw to Costco pizza was more because of its taste or affordability. As it turns out, the answer to this question seems to be, well, complicated. The post has now received more than 200 responses from divided customers who shared their thoughts on the food court item.

On one end of the spectrum, some shoppers jumped at the opportunity to rave about Costco’s pizza. Some even offered helpful tips on how to upgrade Costco pizza to its most delicious form, such as heating it up in the oven or air fryer to ensure it has a crisp bottom, or adding on your favorite toppings at home.

“I’m a pizza snob and I truly think Costco pizza is amazing,” one Redditor commented.

But on the other hand, another group of shoppers was just as adamant that Costco pizza does not deserve the hype.

“It’s not good to me, I’d rather have a Little Caesar’s pizza than a Costco pizza. It’s terrible,” griped one commenter.

“It is not good—if you have any respect for pizza that is,” another added. Critics also described the retailer’s signature pies as “greasy,” “bland,” and inferior to even frozen pies.

And like with any highly divisive issue, there was yet another group of shoppers that believe Costco pizza falls somewhere in the middle on the greatness scale. One Reddit user described it as a “utility pizza,” saying that it was a good, quick option to get lunch on the table and feed children. Others stressed that the taste of the pizza itself is neither amazing nor terrible, but it is still a great buy when all of its qualities are considered together.

“If you factor in the collective categories of taste, price, and quickness, convenience, and nostalgia; it ranks pretty high for me,” wrote one contemplative commenter.

In other words, the pizza is good enough by itself to get the job done, but the price is what allows it to be great.

Yet another Redditor summed it up thusly: “It is an excellent value. I think it tastes fine. Is there better pizza? Yes. Is there better pizza for the price? No.”
