Here's how much pizza you could order for the prices of real-life stuff

To join a gym? Or to order 27 pizzas? That, at least to USA TODAY (and many Americans, myself included), is the question. Fortunately, the folks over at the news site have whipped up a bunch of handy infographics depicting how much certain lifestyle purchases would cost, and their equivalents in delivery pizza

The cost per pizza was calculated by averaging the prices of a large, one-topping pie from Domino's, Pizza Hut, and Papa John's, while the other items' costs were determined by online shopping. So... are you really hungry, or do you need a small coffee table?

Perhaps the most telling one of all -- you can make a pizza from scratch for slightly less than it costs to order one from one of the three big delivery places.

Curiously, DiGiorno is nowhere to be found on this chart.
