Changes in Take & Bake Pizza at Costco

I'm a regular shopper at the Foster City Costco and discovered on Thanksgiving Eve that at least my location has changed up their selection of Take and Bake pizzas. We had family in town and other cooking to do and ended up getting a whole Combo at the Food Court.

New selections on the Take & Bake were: Margherita, Meat Lovers and Canadian Bacon & Pineapple. Margherita looked like regular sandwich tomatoes w/ decent fresh mozz and basil.

Is this just a local phenomenon? Here's hoping they bring back the regular old pepperoni, combo and cheese!

  1. You can now add Ranch Chicken to that list, at least in Bakersfield.

    1. we now have those pizzas in pompano beach, fl, costco, so i guess it is the new deal :)

      1. I noticed this about a month ago in Durham, NC also. Not happy about it - smaller and $2 more, and am not crazy about the limited selection.

          Just asked forr an unbaked one from the Take Out area. Apparently that is what people were doing, thinking it is fresher than the ones it is the "usual" ones at the window and the "fancy" ones from now have a choice.

          1. re: Cathy

            Is the unbaked one from the take out window cheaper than the baked ones like it was in the store?

              No. It is the price of a cooked one. I stopped buying the unbaked ones; I just reheat a baked one in the oven to get a crispy crust again (or use the toaster oven to re-heat a slice). A friend buys the unbaked ones and they don't taste the same to me when she bakes them.

                Thanks. I bought an unbaked one before and like your friend, they just don't taste the same when I heat them myself. It's the oven, I guess.

                  I did it right-once.

                  Have a pizza stone in the oven. Heated oven to 450° and forgot about it for more than 30 minutes- so it got wayyyyy hot ... the pizza cooked up crispy, puffy and not doughy.

                  I know I can reheat pizza correctly, so now I just buy them cooked.
