We all probably know that the cheapest way to buy pizza is to buy a frozen pizza with a coupon. Even homemade wouldn’t be that cheap (even though it would taste a lot better!) But as for me and my family, or favorite pizza is Wegmans pizza. Not Wegmans frozen pizza – the fresh pizza from the pizza department in the prepared foods section. One downfall though is that one slice can cost the same as an entire frozen pizza with a coupon would cost! But this is one area we like to splurge on anyway because it tastes better!
Plus I learned a great tip from the guy helping me at the Pizza department last week!
Last week my daughter had a nasty cold and fever and was lounging on the couch all day. I asked her if there was anything that sounded good for her to eat because her appetite wasn’t the greatest either. The only thing she wanted was Wegmans cheese pizza. I can’t say that I blame her because I love it too. I was super mom that day and made a special trip to Wegmans just to get her, her own slice of cheese pizza. One single slice of cheese pizza costs I believe $2.50. While I was there I was going to get a slice for me and my husband too, bringing the total to $7.50. Then my husband piped up and said to just order a medium, and then we may have some left over for the next day’s lunch. I thought that was a good idea, so I went ahead and called and placed my order.
When I got to Wegmans, the guy at the pizza department was all apologetic because he messed up my order. He made us a large instead of a medium. I was laughing and was like, stop apologizing – you just made my day! Then he told me that they would only charge me for the medium anyway. Then he told me that there is only a PENNY difference between a medium and a large, so if you are ordering a cheese pizza, always just order the large!
I seriously did not know that! I had to go look it up – it’s true! Look over here at the Wegmans menu – a medium cheese is $9.99 and a large cheese is $10! The large pizza is the equivalent of 8 single slices that cost $2.50 each. So if you are going to buy more than one slice, you may as well just get a large! Each slice in a large ends up being $1.25 – that’s half off the price of the individual slices!
I’m sure some of you may have already known that tip, but I didn’t. So in case you were in la la land with me, I thought I’d share. 🙂
