Pizza Per Dollar- You Will Be Surprised To See Good Pizza Near The Top Of The List

Fun article for the 93% of people who ate pizza in the last month. We are the 7% 😛

I’m starting a Youtube channel where we cook recipes that have us eating for $1000/year per person. I wont be posting them here, so make sure you subscribe!

Pizza is a go-to when it comes to almost any social event.

Birthday parties, Superbowl parties, even weddings (yes, I have actually been to a wedding where they served pizza as their main dish)! The question is: What is your most Efficient Pizza?

As we’ve known from our original Calorie Per Dollar List The Little Caesar’s 5 Dollar Pizza is your highest Calorie Per Dollar and Protein Per Dollar on the list. It should be noted, this food is 2 times more cost effective than any other pizza place. That’s impressive. However, this still costs about 2x more than we spend on food.

Tastiest Takeaways

I personally cannot handle Little Caesar’s anymore, I had it on Tuesday Nights too many times during my childhood. Apparently my sister having dance class was an excuse to buy those calories 😛

I was shocked to see Jet’s Large Cheese so high on the list, while we don’t eat much pizza, Jets actually tastes okay (IMO) and scored really well.

Honorable mention to Hungry Howies which averages around third place.

The difference in prices get drastic quickly too. Papa Johns and Domino’s costs almost 50% more. At that point I would go to a local favorite, Buddy’s Pizza for nearly the same price point.

    Thanks for the raw data. I’ll just remove little ceasars from the list. I think it is pretty generous of you to consider them pizza.

    Costco’s Food Court PIzza is by a mile cheaper and much larger than Little Caesar’s…would it be possible to add it to the comparison?

    Other pizza places I’d like to see:
    – Pizza Hut
    – Shields
    – Papa John’s
    – Green Lantern
    – Clover Leaf
    – Cottage Inn
    – Sbarro
    – California Pizza Kitchen

    I’m also interested in the pizza at Sam’s and Costco, like Christina said (see above).

    Thanks for another great article! 🙂

    Costco pizza would be a good one to put into the mix.

    With Papa Johns, I get 50% off coupons via email almost every month. Do people really pay full price at Papa Johns? Just one thing to consider. I believe they always have inflated prices and run these 50% off “deals” to get me there.

      All good suggestions, I’ve found some deals on pizza from Walmart as well, like 1200 calories per dollar.

      I’ll be revisiting this topic later this year with additional stores and pizza options
