29$ for a 14" take out pizza? Am I getting old?

I was at Billingsgate in the stadium strip mall and noticed a new pizza place (Olive Grove, don't know if it has anything to do with Olive Grove Pizza Express) had opened. I didn't have the chance to take a look but the next day I got a menu in the mail.

A 14" large is $28.95 which made me stop and stare and not for the right reasons. Even a 10" is $17.95. This is for something as basic as a vegetarian, nothing fancy.

Am I getting old? Are these prices the new norm for decent pie? We usually go to Pangaea on Northmount and an 18" with everything is $21.99. Even something like Matador's or Nick's is cheaper to sit down and dine.

I'm looking on the menu and it's not saying "gourmet" anywhere. There's a brief note about the dough being made daily. Really? That's worth bragging about these days? I feel like I should take out my dentures, put on some more preparation H and go back to my crossword puzzle.

Anyone tried it yet? Is it worth the price? Am I going senile?
