The Pizza Conspiracy
I think most people enjoy the comfort food of Pizza? There are all kinds of Pizza these days.
From pesto, marinara to white wine as the sauce. The ingredients can vary with every variety of vegetable and meat imaginable. The crust can be white, whole wheat, Gluten free and many other varieties. Some pizzeria's even fill the crust with additional cheese.
The conspiracy happens when you order multiple ingredients on the same pizza. If you order a Cheese and Pepperoni pizza it usually has a good amount of pepperoni's on it, lets ball park and say there are 30 slices of pepperoni on a large pizza. Let's say that pizza cost $15.00.
Now you want a two ingredient pizza where the price is $18.00. You order Cheese, pepperoni and mushroom, however to make room for the mushrooms you only get half the amount of pepperoni approximately 15. The same is true for three ingredients, now you have less pepperoni and less mushroom to make room the jalapeno peppers.
Since the volume is the same whether one ingredient or three ingredients, shouldn't the price be the same and not additional?
There is only one place that sells pizza that does not charge for extra ingredients, it is our local big box store, Costco.
For the one millionth time, Mahalo Hui Loa to Costco, not only for pricing their pizza's in a sane manner but for selling gas for over $1.00 a gallon cheaper than any other station on the island.
Did someone say a one quarter all beef hot dog with all the fixins and a refillable soft-drink for 1.50? I hear someone calling, I think it's my friend Costco!
