Quite funny news -like several other royals Queen Paola will be honoured with a pizza named after her during the world pizza days in Naples*:
Koningin Paola krijgt een pizza met haar naam - Het Nieuwsblad
I can already picture the queen, as a gifted cook, trying out this new recipe in order to surprise e.g. her beloved grandchildren ...
*whose organizers didn't formally ask for a permission regarding their naming decision, as spokesman Pierre-Emmanuel De Bauw complained. However, Belgium's royal family doesn't intend to take action against the pizza in question: Koningin niet blij met (May 22, 2012)

Well, they didn't ask her before making the decision, so in the end I guess the Palace and Queen Paola didn't want to spoil their enjoyment of it


King Albert today also met with Horst Seehofer, current President of the Federal Council of Germany.

Well if you can have Pizza Margherita named after an Italian Queen why not Pizza Paola named after an Italian born Queen of the Belgians.

The owners of the restaurant "Il Daino" in Oud-Herverlee (Belgium) claim a patent for their "pizza Paola" invented in 1999. Back then, after having informed the royal court, they handed over their creation in Laeken and finally received a thank you letter from King Albert and Queen Paola:

...so she already enjoyed "her" pizza -now she can pick the tastier recipe of those two.
