Italy Wants To Legally Protect The Art Of Pizza Making

A European senator has introduced a bill that would require pizza makers to complete a 120-hour course in order to become a registered pizza chef. Not surprisingly, the senator in question is from Italy.

The 120-hour course would be made up of 20-hours of food science, 20-hours of pizza-making workshops, 30-hours of food hygiene and 40-hours of foreign languages. If you pass, you’d then have to complete 18-months work experience before joining the registry, which would span all of Europe.

“As Italians we have a responsibility to defend our culinary traditions,” the senator explains. “Pizza makes up 50-percent of all restaurant takings in Italy, yet more and more people are being served ‘fraudulent’ pizza that doesn’t conform to traditions.” The bill faces a long way to go before being passed, but we’ll keep you posted.
