A court in Padua has ruled in favour of a divorced father who pays alimony to his ex-wife in the form of pizza, Il Gazzettino reported.
He was ordered to pay €300 in child support for the couple's daughter each month as part of the divorce settlement, and the professional pizza chef chose to make the payments in the form of delicious pizza - something his ex-wife was not happy about.
While many people might be delighted at monthly deliveries of €300 worth of pizza, she had clearly had enough and after one margherita too many, she took the 50-year-old man to court, accusing him of non-payment of child support.
But judge Chiara Bitozzi ruled in favour of the father, named only as NT. Since he does not earn enough to make the full payment, Bitozzi said that it was acceptable to continue paying the alimony with his culinary creations instead.
Neither Bitozzi or the man's lawyer, Sonia Della Greca, were not immediately available for comment.
