Hah, no.

A machine-made pizza put on a conveyor belt is not a pizza oven.

Source: I have a pizza oven. The whole point is that it gets really, really hot in order to cook a pizza in under a minute, which also incidentally makes the crust delicous. Not that Costco food court pizza has a crust. It’s more like a focaccia bread with toppings, which is fine for its purpose and delicious in its own right for what it is and price point.

If you tried to cook a Costco pizza in an actual pizza oven, it wouldn’t work. The temperatures would burn it WELL before you finished cooking the giant piece of dough.

The food court pizza is miraculous for the calorie/dollar ratio, and for that it can be praised. Let’s not go insane and start acting like it’s good pizza.

It's decent pizza and this is from someone who has to work with it all day. Maybe good for chain pizza.

Oh, Dee, you card. :-*

I didn't realize the pizza was cooked on the same machine that the dough is flattened on.

FWIW, I used to make pizzas at a grocery store I worked at in high school and the pizza oven we had still took about 5 minutes to cook everything. It wasn't as ballin as yours, apparently.

I dispense wisdom by the gallon.

Basically all chain pizzas and a majority of mom and pop places use a gas conveyor oven between 450 and 550 degrees for pizza.

The unbeliever is a pizza snob who believes that a true pizza must be cooked in a coal or wood fired oven at around 900 degrees.

Took the advice here. My wife and I showed up about 15 minutes before they opened and the place was already starting to fill up. everyone looked like zombies. Just bunch of people slowly walking towards the entrance but no one leaving. Got a bunch of non biodegradable k cups, bulk toothpaste, kerigold butter, other items and had to stop myself from buying a tub of M&M's. Left with a $260 bill. Long live Costco!

A friend who went with me when considering buying a membership asked the door checker on the way out how thorough they are - she replied if the receipt has less than 15-20 items they do an item count, otherwise they check for big ticket items or the most expensive ones on the receipt.

Unclear if this is corporate policy or if how thorough the checkers are is handled at the store level.

A few weeks back I bought a single pack of socks from Costco and a hot dog at the food court. I accidentally handed her the hot dog receipt and she took two seconds to look at it, marked it off and sent me on my way.

Long ago I sinned. There was a receipt checker at the Costco close to where I lived at the time. The receipt checker from hell. Checked every single thing. Twice.

I had a great trip, lots of stuff. The checker was there, beady eyes and waiting, I could tell they started salivating at the thought of inspecting my haul.

I approached, receipt in hand. Initially held forward as is customary. Then getting closer, starting to crumple in my outstretched hand. Then getting nearly close enough for the handoff, looking straight into the eyes of the hellbeast I put the wadded receipt in my mouth, gave a good chew, eyes locked. I kept walking straight out the door and spit the receipt into the trash.

The hellbeast bothered me no longer.

So I bought the asian veggie mix because great Costco decided to deny me my Normandy veggies so that I may grow.

How do I prepare this strange new vegetable brew? I normally just doused the norman feast in olive oil and spices and subjected it to 450 degree temps for 30 minutes.

Now do I sautee this? Douse it in Kirkland teriyaki sauce and bake it? I am befuddled.

I don't have an OJ joke, however I do want to sing praises about the vacuum sealer that Costco sells and pairing it with the breads/bagels/croissants from the bakery. Nobody can (or should) eat so much bread before it goes bad, but if you freeze it overnight then swap the frozen bread into vacuum-sealed bags and reseal as you need, wow. That's to say nothing about other bulk savings with sealing stuff away too!

We picked up the smaller one when it was on sale during December (FM2100), its been great. I have some sirloins I picked up just after New Years in the freezer that have zero freezer burn, and the resealable bags it came with are great for sous vide.

I don't think you could go wrong with either, but the one that's currently on sale takes up a lot of counter or cupboard space.

If you die protecting your local 'Co, do you go to an etherial food court what provides Dogs and Refills for free?

My local Costco allows non-members to partake in communion. The food court is open to all through a seperate entrance next to the main one.
I'm all for sharing the word of 'co, but it's located literally nextdoor to a major NHL stadium, and it gets insane lineups on game nights.
The call of $1.50 dogs and $4 poutine brings even non-believers into the loving embrace of our Lord and saviour.

This is pretty much my ideal Costco location. The only part that would make me sad is the couple of months every year when NHL is in the offseason.

Yeah it's this. I don't care too much about the croissants but the normal bread gets crushed hard from it if it isn't frozen stiff beforehand.

Ah yes, the Las Vegas Costco-Dome at the Costcotel. A warehouse, but a dome, and a luxury casino hotel, that can somehow house NFL/MLB/NBA/NHL/Ruby/Lacrosse/Winter Sports/Wrestling/Theater/Concerts/etc. under the sun. On the Strip. Maybe take out all the older casinos there like remove Excalibur/Luxor/etc. or Flamingo/Circus Circus/Harrah's/etc. and put it there.

"WIN! BUT WIN IN BULK! Just need a Costco Membership!" with rooms more luxurious but cheaper than what's around it.
