image for First Pizza Chain Discovered
Approach to Pompei Pizza.

Archeology in Pompeii never ceases to amaze and delight. The Pompeii dig is huge and vast portions of it have yet to be plotted, dug, and researched.

In an untapped area archeologists have now discovered what is likely Italy's first pizza parlor.

Like all Pompeii dig sites the Pizza restaurant is perfectly preserved with a pizza oven, bar, and sitting area. The amazed scientists were ecstatic to find two wholly preserved fossilized large sized pizzas in the oven -- double pepperoni and the archaic goat testicle and anchovy.

Pizza is almost as old as the Pope but its origins are more humble. The Pompeii Pizza dig site probably only sat a dozen patrons. The most amazing discovery was the inscription in the marble stone oven - Chang's Pizza, Pompeii, Napoli, Roma.

Chang, a Chinese name, predates any known contact with Asia by Europeans. Marco Polo wasn't until early thirteen hundreds which is almost thirteen centuries after the 79 AD Pompeii eruption. Scientists are baffled but conjecture has it that Chang is the long rumored Asian who explored Europe long before Marco Polo.

Make C. Cranium's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
