I too enjoying traveling to other countries and sampling their below average pizza offerings.

I know right. Vacation is all about realising how much better home is and the rest sucks.

I mean, outside of Italy which is a different thing anyway, our pizza is actually way better than Europe's in my experience. Just not our Costco pizza. I think it's just a meme because it's surprisingly good, not because it's actually good relative to a decent pizza shop. But hey you do you.

How about the Hot Dogs? Also you should try spotting Neapolitan pizza places across Europe. They are usually the ones that rock. Eg these guys in Bratislava (No affiliation)

I think people like the pizza and hot dogs partially just because they're so cheap, not because they're the best around.

Agreed. The hotdogs are famous because they are cheap, not because they are especially good. For at least 25 years a hotdog with a soda at Costco has been $1.50. Costco famously refuses to raise the price. They even started manufacturing their own hotdogs instead of raising the price.

The deal with Costco stuff is generally that people are saying “it’s surprisingly decent quality for how cheap it is.”

It isn’t by any means the highest quality stuff you can find though, you’re going to be disappointed if that’s what you’re looking for. You can get much better pizza in the US than Costco pizza.
