Pizza men aim to save Venice

BY CalSTINA ODONE WANT TO SAVE VENICE? Then eat a pizza. The duo behind Pizza Express, the nationwide pizza restaurant chain, have already raised half-amillion pounds for the Venice in Peril Fund by contributing 25 pence off every ,c3.90 Pizza Veneziana they sell.

"We've been very eager to help the appeal, but have made the contribution discretionary customers can choose to buy the pizza at only £3.65," director Luke Johnson, son of Catholic historian and journalist Paul, told the Catholic Herald this


Chairman Peter Boizot, who has been contributing to the Fund since 1976, said that "I've always considered Venice as one of the most romantic cities, with some of the greatest churches and religious art in Western civilisation."

The pizza Veneziana, which "is very popular with our customers", was inspired by Italian gourmet Massimo Alberini, who based his recipe on the "saor" Venetian sauce, which is, according to Boizot, "a combinaiton of sweet and sour tastes with sultanas, pine kernels, and onions."
