Child support can get expensive. A pizza habit can be expensive. It was only a matter of time before someone figured out a way to solve both problems.
A judge in Padua, Italy has ruled that a divorced father can make child support payments in the form of an equivalent amount of pizza. According to the Local, a 50-year-old Italian man was required to pay roughly $333 a month in child support for his daughter. Unable to make the payments, the pizza chef who is identified only as NT opted to give his wife and daughter an equivalent amount of pizza every month instead.
The man’s wife sued for failure to pay child support, but judge Chiara Bitozzi found for the chef.
“Since he does not earn enough to make the full payment … it was acceptable to continue paying the alimony with his culinary creations instead,” she wrote in her ruling.
She added that anyone who tries to pay their child support in St. Louis-Style pizza should be hung, drawn and quartered. At least that’s how it played out in my head.
It’s a well-known fact that kids love pizza of all sizes, quality levels and types. Indiscriminate pizza love from the younger set is the entirety of the reason that CiCi’s is still around. Maybe mom should get with the program and realize that pizza is good and almost never bad.
