  • Costco is technically one of the largest pizza chains in the country, and Sam's Club isn't far behind.
  • Both chains' food-court pizzas are extremely popular with shoppers.  
  • We compared both and found Costco's to be substantially more satisfying. 

At one of the largest pizza chains in the Unites States, you can buy a slice of cheese pizza, a $4.99 rotisserie chicken, and a casket

No, Domino's doesn't have that kind of variety; it's Costco, which happens to be the 14th largest pizza chain in the US by number of locations. There are over 700 Costco stores, and therefore, over 700 food courts selling piping-hot and melty pizza. And warehouse retail competitor Sam's Club isn't that far behind, with over 500 locations in the country. 

They both serve a lot of pizza — but which bulk retailer's pizza is the best? We decided to try both to find out:

Costco's pizza is remarkably cheap: $1.99 a slice, and only $8.95 for a whole 18" pizza — either cheese, pepperoni, or the "combo," which is essentially a supreme-style pizza.

The slices are enormous. They barely fit on the full-size paper plates, with the cheesy points flopping off the edge. It's large enough to be unwieldy when you pick it up — napkins are highly recommended.

The cheese slice is expertly browned, and the crust is floppy yet not soggy. It's certainly difficult to eat, but it's worth it. The cheese is salty, greasy, and thick, and the tomato sauce beneath is lightly sweet. Overall, it's a good slice: unwieldy, but cheesy, salty, and extremely filling.
