Prego Pizza

Aron sent me the link to this pizza.

Apparently it has mystical powers that induce labor.

I'm game.

In the spring of 1981, a woman desperate to give birth after a trying pregnancy, wandered into Skipolini's Pizza in downtown Clayton. Jokingly, the woman demanded that the manager give her a pizza that would make her have the baby soon. Seeing her desperation, the manager concocted a pizza with just about every known topping in the restaurant.

The masterpiece had thirteen different toppings including extra onions and extra garlic. The pizza was loaded with fresh vegetables and six types of meat. The creation weighed over four pounds and could have cured the hunger of several small countries. The results were amazing. The woman left the restaurant after eating the "Prego" pizza and went into labor that same evening. So began the amazing history of the first ever, the original, "Prego" pizza.

After years of success, the "Prego" pizza has been growing in popularity. It has been recommended by doctors and OBGYN's everywhere. The pizza gives hope to pregnant mothers who are just ready to put a happy ending to a long nine months. The "Prego" pizza has been recognized by newspaper, magazine, radio, and television programming alike. In the early years, radio personality Dr. Don Rose first helped publicize the pizza on the radio station KFRC. The successes of the "Prego" pizza have been documented in the Contra Costa Times, Pizza Today magazine, Diablo Magazine, Gourmet Magazine, and many other local publications. The popularity of the "Prego" has also been enhanced by short clips aired on KTVU channel 2, Evening Magazine, CNN, and KPIX, channel 5 news.

There are even "testimonials" on the website. Pretty funny stuff!

I have been to Skipolini's with Peg and Marc - Clayton is just down the road from Concord. Maybe Peg could do a special delivery for you?

too funny! I ate at Klondike the night I went into labor. My sister in law was all set to make eggplant parmesan the next night because of it's supposedly labor inducing magic.
I can't believe you're still pregnant.

Seriously Jeannett--I am happy to get the pizza and drive down to see you. Let me know--we can have them prepare it and not bake it OR have it all ready and then we can reheat it. I can't believe we have never gone there--it is really great pizza--all of them!
