If you’re looking for a pizza deal, mark your calendar for Monday.
Metro Detroit pizza chain Toarmina’s Pizza is marking its 35th anniversary by rolling back the price to what it cost in 1987 for a 12-inch pizza. Way back then, a 12-inch Toarmina’s Pizza was a whopping $ 3.99, not the $ 11.99 price listed today on Toarmina’s online menu.
In 1987, the cost of a gallon of gas was about 82 cents in downtown Detroit. A postage stamp costs 22 cents.
We all know what those prices are now, so this pizza is a bargain.

“We have been determined to use the freshest ingredients available from the day we opened our first store,” said company founder Lou Toarmina in a news release. “With the soaring food prices and labor shortages, this year will be especially tough to match that price. Yet many of our stores still want to give it a shot as a thank you to our great customers. ”
