Winco is a low-priced, employee-owned grocery store chain across six states in the West, including multiple locations here in Oregon. Inside most of the stores, you’ll find a Leonardi’s Pizza, featuring value-priced take and bake, or baked in the store, pizzas and subs from a counter at the front of the store.
They also sell bargain slices, tantamount to a quarter of a pie for $1.98. Elsewhere in Portland, you can buy up to $6 a slice, for a much smaller (and skimpier, in some places) slice o’ pie.
Couple it with a Shasta from the nearby vending machine, and you have a quick meal for about $2.25. Feed yourself or the kids on the long trip home from the market – tho I always recommend eating BEFORE grocery shopping.
Another fun thing, elsewhere in the store (usually around the cheese case) you can find Leonardo’s dough balls, if you are really feeling ambitious for the bake at home pizzeria experience.
A slice is a slice, and this one measure up, both in heft and taste. It’s a respectable product, and $8.98 for a large whole pie, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better pizza value.
