Inflation strikes another institution: pizza

NEW YORK Pizza prices are rising, too. Pizzerias are passing on their increased costs for cheese, flour and other ingredients.

Domenico DeMarco, owner of Di Fara Pizza in Brooklyn has hiked the price of a slice from three bucks to four.

His pizza is considered among New York's best. DeMarco, who makes about 150 pizzas a day, says the cost of flour, tomatoes and cheese from Italy is forcing his hand.

Today, a whole pizza sells for $20. Back in 1964 a whole pie only cost a buck and slices went for 20 cents each.
