The pizza is very good but identical to Costco.
No, there is no such thing as 'good' Costco pizza. Maybe tolerable or acceptable, but not good. Next time you're in NJ,NY, Philly or Boston, try some authentic handmade pizza made by an Italian family.

Costco pizza, supermarket subs, it's one of the things that cracks me up about so many people. They just really don't know how good some things can actually be because they've never truly had good pizza or a good Italian sandwich before. So they argue that the Publix sub they just ate has to be the best anywhere. Or that a Costco pizza is as good as what I'm used to from my favorite local shop. It really is funny.

First time I was in Chicago was on a business trip. I went to Lou Malnatiís to try out this chicago pizza thing. I sat down and the guy asks me if I ordered ahead. I said no, and he said it takes about an hour to make. So I waited. When this lasagna / casserole monstrosity finally arrived I had about 5 bites and tapped out.
Take me back to NYC.

The pizza is very good but identical to Costco. Excluding the national chains, where I have had pizza that boasts one or the other, true Chicago or NY seems to somewhat tasty but no depth or substance to it, razor thin crust and reminds me of Domino's from 30 years ago and I'm paying for apparently history with a less than average taste.
Chicago pizza is not Italian and is nothing like NY pizza. It is a mix of a breakfast pastry and soup.

That looks good. I would eat it and likely enjoy it, but that is not Pizza.

This is a simple and satisfying pizza to me.
It's not a fancy Margherita or full of mozzarella di bufala.
But if I'm just going to a joint it has all I need to be happy.

As a New Yorker, I'm gonna say that looks pretty good. Different, but it's got potential. Moreso than Chicago style.

New York Style Pizza is Pizza.

Chicago Style "Pizza" is a Casserole.

Hope this helps.

In New York , pizza is crust,sauce, and cheese..maybe add one or two toppings. The crust is crispy, the sauce authentic Italian, and the mozzarella, Romano and pecorino cheese is superb...thatís ALL YOU NEED.
In New York, a hot dog is a kosher frank, that is delicious on its own, fresh roll, maybe add saurkraut, or relish, or onions, but the frank is the key, because itís so good.

In Chicago, the crust, sauce, and cheese is Mid-Western bland, so they have to add all kinds of crap to dress up an otherwise tasteless mass. The pizza and ingredients canít stand on its own...notice how Pappa Johnís, Pizza Hut, little Caesarís, (mid west chains) add all kinds of junk to an otherwise delicious food..like Cheetos, stuffed crusts, 7 kinds of meat..etc etc
same thing with Chicago hot dogs, the frankfurter is a run of the mill Oscar Meyer dog, tasteless, so the Mid-Westerners have to add, green relish, wired rolls, oni9ns etc etc because the basic ingredients suck. Like an ugly girl who adds too much make-up.

I travel the country extensively and nobody except people from Chicago really like that type of pizza.. Also Folks from Chicago feel compelled to tell me how great Chicago food is, but they really donít realize how generic it tastes...also I second the grossness of St. Louis pizza. Nasty cream cheese like substance slathered over a cracker..
BTW in New York we also have Sicilian style pizza which has a much thicker crust and is square, delicious without all the gimmicks.

The original Barone's in Burbank was good. Thin NY style in a square pan. I think they've moved...been a while.

Ironically, there is a restaurant chain here in SoCal that calls this "Chicago Style" pizza.

I think it's sad that so many people around this area say that they hate Chicago Style pizza when they've never actually tasted the real thing.
