How Many Slices in a Costco Pizza (Food Court) + Other FAQ
There is a lot of false information on Costco’s food court and its food court pizza floating around on the internet.
The Costco Food Database is here to set the record straight and give you 100% factual and correct information on Costco’s food court pizzas options, especially regarding how many slices are in a Costco pizza and how many people does a Costco pizza feed.
What Type of Pizza Does Costco Sell?
Costco sells two different types of pizza: pepperoni pizza and cheese pizza. Both options are sold as whole pizzas or individual slices, and the price does not change between the two pizza flavors.
Many consumers think that the one individual slice of Costco pizza is the equivalent of an individual slice of pizza from Costco’s pizza, but this isn’t exactly the case.
Later in this article, I go more in-depth on how the slice sizes compare between Costco’s whole pizza and the individual slices they sell.
How Much Are Costco's Pizzas?
The Costco food court offers two different pizza options. Both the food court pepperoni pizza and the cheese pizza can be purchased as whole pizzas and individual slices. A whole pizza costs $9.95, and an individual slice of pizza costs $1.99.
The food court prices are the same whether you order the pepperoni pizza, the cheese pizza or the half-and-half pizza (only available as a whole pizza).
How Big Are Costco’s Pizzas?
Costco is known for its bulk buying and large quantities, and this is no different for their food court pizza. Each Costco pizza measures out to be 18” and is about the same size as an X-Large pizza and many major pizza retailers.
Costco may lack toppings and pizza size options, but an 18” pizza comparable to an X-Large pizza isn’t bad for $9.95.
How Many Slices Are In a Costco Pizza?
Each of Costco’s massive 18” pizzas contains 12 individual slices of pizza. This is the standard to which all Costco pizzas are cut, and each pizza will have exactly 12 slices.
There is no difference between the pepperoni and the cheese options, and Costco usually will not consider any special requests to change the number of slices in each pizza.
Individual Costco pizza slices vs. slices in a whole Costco pizza
One major distinction to note is that each slice of Costco’s individual $1.99 slice of pizza is not the same as a slice from Costco’s whole pizza.
Costco’s whole pizzas are always cut into 12 slices, but the individual slices of pizza are actually twice as large as the slices from the whole pizza.
Yes, Costco cuts their individual pizza slices from their whole pizzas, but those pizzas are cut to make 6 slices and not 12. So each individual slice of pizza will be larger than a slice you receive from a whole Costco pizza.
I’ve overlaid a $1.99 individual slice of Costco’s pizza over a whole Costco pizza to illustrate the size difference between the slices.
You can see the whole pizza is cut into 12 slices while the individual slice is actually twice as large as one of the slices of the whole pizza pie.
How many people does a whole Costco pizza feed?
Determining exactly how many of Costco’s pizzas you need for a party can be tricky. Everybody eats a different amount, so answering the question of how many people does a whole Costco pizza feed can vary quite wildly.
On average, each Costco pizza will feed approximately 5 full grown adults. Each person eats about two slices, so this number builds in a little buffer to ensure you don’t run out of food.
Costco’s pizza is an excellent option at any party or gathering, but if you want a little more variety, you can always check out Costco’s catering menu.
Combining the pizza with croissant sandwiches or a shrimp platter can help diversify the food options.
How many kids can a Costco pizza feed?
Depending on the kids’ age, a whole Costco pizza can feed 6-8 kids. This will, of course, depend on their age, but I think it’s fair to say that each kid will eat between 1 and a half to two slices.
How Many Calories in a Costco Pizza?
Costco’s food court displays the simplified calorie count for Costco’s pizza on their food court menu. A whole pepperoni pizza from Costco has 3,880 calories, while a whole cheese pizza has 4,260. Yes, that is right, the cheese pizza from Costco has more calories than the pepperoni pizza.
How Many Calories in a Whole Costco Pizza?
Whole Costco Cheese Pizza
Whole Costco Pepperoni PIzza
An individual slice of Costco’s pepperoni pizza has 650 calories, and the cheese pizza has 710 calories. Remember, each $1.99 slice of Costco’s pizza is twice the size of a slice from a whole Costco pizza.
Costco cheese Pizza Slice
Costco Pepperoni Pizza Slice
Remember that each slice is also twice as large as the whole Costco pizza, so to find the calories per slice of Costco’s pizza, you will have to divide the above number by two. A slice of Costco’s pepperoni pizza has 325 calories, and a slice of Costco’s cheese pizza has 355 calories.
