Piccolo forno antico

A pizza is removed from a wood-burning oven during a protest to demand stricter price controls on the rising cost of pizza in Naples August 27, 2008. "Pizzaioli" or pizza chefs in Naples, birthplace of the Margherita, handed out free pizzas on Wednesday in protest at high prices charged by rivals who, they say, use the spike in commodity prices to rip off consumers. In the city where the classic "Margherita" with mozzarella, tomato and basil topping was invented in the 19th century - and named in honour of a queen with a taste for fast food - 30 cooks lit up six wood-burning ovens to cook 5,000 thin-crusted Neapolitan pizzas for queues of local people and tourists.
