Everyone knows that Costco is a bastion of wholesale savings, but those that haven't spent much time inside its cavernous 150,000sqft warehouses might not know that the savings aren't the only thing that's supreme. That's right, we're making pizza puns.
That's because Costco has also mastered pizza. The megastore's pepperoni, cheese, and supremely loaded combo slices have earned a cult following for quality, insane calorie-to-cost ratio, and a mesmerizing mechanical saucing process. The folks at Costco gave us a rare behind-the-scenes tour of their kitchen to show how the sausage (pizza) is made. We learned that each slice is well worth the $2.15 (after tax!), especially when you consider the chemistry, robotics, and economic planning involved.
