A while ago we heard about a special salad that helped pregnant women go into labor. But now, there's a yummier food to help speed along the process!
Pregnant women have turned to Skipolini's restaurant in California and Nevada for an extra push. Some say a certain pizza there, known as Prego Pizza, has the power to make an unborn baby pop out!
It all started in 1981 when a very pregnant woman walked into the restaurant and jokingly requested a pizza that would send het straight into labor. So, the manager made her a pizza with almost every topping they had: salmami, pepperoni, sausage, ham, ground beef, mushrooms, Parmesan cheese, oregano, linguica, black olives, bell peppers, onions and garlic with marinara sauce and melted mozzarella cheese all on a thick crust. The entire thing weighed over 4 pounds!
It was said that the woman's water broke immediately after getting home from Skipolini's. The pizzeria has now documented about 150 success stories. General Manager Victor Perez said that “We have so many cases where actually as they’re eating the Prego Pizza, their water breaks at the restaurant and they’re like, ‘We gotta go!’ I [tell] everybody anytime they’re eating a Prego Pizza, you gotta let us know as soon as you start feeling something because we’re not certified to deliver babies.”
This might just be the secret weapon to inducing labor! Take a look at the magic pizza below.
