An Italian court has allowed a man to pay his alimony to his ex-wife in pizza due to his inability to pay with money.

According to an Italian newspaper, a Padua judge has ruled in favour of a divorced 50-year-old man who had taken to paying his former spouse the court-appointed sum of €300 IN PIZZA. That figure was a result of child support offered for the pair’s daughter.

The man, a professional pizza chef, had fallen in the habit of making the monthly payment in the form of pizza, which his ex-wife determined was not a satisfactory form of payment.

Taking her former husband to court, the woman’s lawyer argued that the alimony payment in the shape of thin-base pepperoni pizzas did not fulfil the legal requirements of their divorce settlement.

But judge Chiara Bitozzi ruled in favour of the pizza chef. The judge said that since he did not have enough income to make the full payment and could not reach deeper into his pocket, payment by deep dish would suffice in the eyes of the law.
