2,500 WON PER SLICE / 12,500 WON PER PIE

Costco Pizza is near and dear to my heart. It's simple and tasty. I had gone to Costco to go shopping for this weeks groceries. However, everyone knows there is an unwritten rule at Costco. This rule states that even after you buy over 200,000won worth of groveries you still must stop by the food court and eat there. I abide by the rule, and I do not regret this at all.
As a child, when I saw my parents bring home that big box of Costco Pizza for dinner, I knew it was going to be a poppin meal. The smell, taste, and joy of a Costco slice brings back fond childhood memories. Most Americans have tried this pizza, and most would agree with me that this pizza is the bomb.
The menu is packed and all their food is priced at an affordable cost. Their two most iconic menu items are the hot dog set and pizza. Since this is a post about the pizza, for the pizza you have the option to buy the pizza by the slice or the whole pie. A whole pie from Costco is measured at 16inches or 40centimeters. A slice will set you back only 2,500won and a whole pie would cost 12,500. Costco is very simplistic with their pizza menu only have 3 toppings to choose from; Cheese, Pepperoni, or Combo.
I decided to go with the combination pizza. The toppings were jam packed! It had pepperonis, olives, green peppers, sausages, and onions. Underneath all those toppings there was a layer of mozzarella cheese, and under that a very light but noticeably tangy sauce. It is worth mentioning that there was a slight spice coming from the sausage and vegetables, which elevated the pizza even more. The pizza is the slice of a New York slice, but the crust and dough is much thicker. Costco reminds me of a normal slice of pizza from a chain restaurant, but jumbo and better.
Overall Costco pizza reminds me of my childhood, and it is a comfort pizza for me. It will never be the best pizza, but it is a solid pizza that is good any day of the week.
