Costco Pizza
« on: June 28, 2014, 11:58:07 AM »
Went to Costco yesterday to get some supplies and happened to be there at lunch time. I figured I would get one of their hot dogs (which I love) and got into the line up. By the time I got to the order counter a fresh pepperoni pizza had just been cut so I changed my mind and got a slice of pizza instead. OMG that was a big mistake. I can't believe how bad that pizza was. There wasn't one thing I liked about it and if the line up wasn't so long I would have tossed it into the garbage and got a hot dog. I used to think their pies weren't bad. :o

Apparently I have been spoiled by making pies at home, using the great info available on this forum. Thank you very much. ;D

Too much soggy coleslaw.  It wouldn't be as gross if they had a vinegar-based slaw.
Things have never been more like today than they are right now.

I used to think they weren't bad too. Maybe I just got a crappy one.

I made a pie tonight and it was definitely way better than the one I had at Costco. :)

I agree, horrid stuff. Loaded with dough conditioners too! But there are lots of silly people out there that wouldn't know a good pizza if you threw it in there face. Shocks me seeing the lines of people queuing for it.
I would rather eat a prostitutes used thong.

Scott,

It looks like Costco does things differently in the UK. When some of the members researched the dough that Costco was using in the U.S. a few years ago, we learned that it was a very simple frozen dough from Lamonica'swith no conditioners or additives. For example, see Reply 2 at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=9121.msg79444#msg79444 . See, also, Reply 24 at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=9121.msg83041#msg83041 .
