Pizza to Die For: Italian Prosecutors Allege Pizzerias in Naples Have Been Using Coffin Wood

If you thought that Neapolitan pizza on your last vacation to Italy was to die for, you were more right. Italian prosecutors allege that pizzeria owners in Naples have been using coffin wood to make their pizzas and save on the cost of combustible material.

Thieves in Naples routinely raid cemeteries for flowers, pots, and other goods.

Neapolitan pizza was invented between 1715 and 1725 and the Margherita variant (right) was introduced in 1889.

This would make for an interesting negligent infliction of emotional distress claim. Technically, at the heat of an oven, there may not be a health risk. However, most people would find it rather distressful to learn that their pizza was cooked over the ashes of used coffins.

  1. Well, some of them pizza eaters will be coffin’ up that last slice of Nap feed at this news while the pizzeria will likely be coffin’ up huge legal fees as plaintiffs’ lawyers joyfully sing Amore! Cha-ching Amore!

  3. Imagine living in a Country where you have to raid the local cemetary in order to make a ‘living’. Well now go read about New York closing its Parks and Historic sites dt budgetary shortfalls.

    The ‘powers that be’ keep trying to get blood from hurting stones while corporate pirates sail away scott free and tax free.

    Well this is where fascism leads…
