The great pizza pie mystery

Here's something I don't get.

Back in the day, and I'm talking 40-45 years ago, when you got the munchies on Friday night, you'd order a pizza. In Guelph, you'd order that pizza from Marco's Pizza.

This was of course long before the big chains took over the world of pizza.

So 45 years ago you'd canvas your drunken buddies for cash contributions, and you'd eventually coral that twenty bucks required to get that large with pepperoni, bacon, mushrooms, and hot peppers.

Here's what mystifies me; order a large from one of the big chains today, with pepperoni, bacon, mushrooms, and hot peppers, and it's still twenty bucks!

But plug that twenty bucks in 1970 into the Department of Labor Inflation Calculator and today's pizza pie should be well over a hundred dollars!

What the fuck is going on?

Obviously, they're cutting corners somewhere...
