New ‘anti-wrinkle’ pizza causes a stir with pie purists in Italy

According to a news report from news.sawf.org, “The “primula” pizza is made up of three times the amount of fibre found in a classic pizza and boasts that it contains more magnesium and iron, thanks to its ingredients, including wholemeal flour, La Stampa newspaper reported Monday.”

“At least eight vegetables or sauces in the pizza allegedly create the anti-oxidant effects against ageing: tomatoes, rocket, garlic, courgettes, basil, mushrooms, carrots and spinach,” said the story. “The formula was devised by Eugenio Luigi Iorio, a nutritionist and biochemist at the University of Naples, in collaboration with Cosimo Mogavero, owner of a restaurant called La Fabbrica dei Sapori (The Taste Factory) restaurant. Pope Benedict XVI apparently loves the “anti-age” pizza, according to the newspaper. He ate one of the pies during a party for the Vatican guards catered by Mogavero.”
