No mercy. This is the Cobra Kai of pizza admonishments; stop eating that crap and those chains will go away. Then you can support your local establishment and get better pizza.

Chain companies somehow always seen to drop in quality, no?
Seems to me that there are multiple aspects at play: As DFT suggested; we are getting older, and our taste buds are changing.
But the cost-cutting/profit-gaining choices made by the chain restos, has given us cardboardish delivery pizza.
Their profits increase, they spend a fortune on tantalizing commercials, then disappoint time after time.
How does that business-model even work?
Perhaps we have stumbled-upon the the weakest link, that will be downfall of all Capitalism!!!! (Just kidding LoL).
Officers visited 20 outlets in Lancashire for the food sampling operation and performed tests on ingredients used in hundreds of pizzas sold to customers. Each premises failed on descriptions of the ham, cheese, or both. The report revealed 19 out of 20 samples were found to contain “analogue cheese” - an artificial cheesy substance that is much quicker and cheaper to produce than real cheese. Inspectors found 10 out of the 15 pizzas that purported to contain ham actually contained turkey DNA. Four samples that were advertised as containing pepperoni were found to contain “species in addition to beef or pork”.
