As Italian As Naples


No need for expensive airfare or pushy bellhops when Chef Boy-Ar-Dee can transport you to Naples with its “zippy pizza sauce.” Go ahead and scratch the Amalfi Coast off your bucket list altogether. Why bother when you can taste Italy in your mouth?

Fun Fact #1

The company itself was founded back in 1928 by Italian immigrant Ettore “Hector” Boiardi in Cleveland, Ohio. You know, where Drew Carey is from. Taking note of Americans’ incapacity to pronounce highfalutin foreign words, Boiardi named his products Boy-Ar-Dee. Boy, are dey stoopid. 

Fun Fact #2:

Though he passed in 1985, his likeness remains on the cans to this day. Buon appetito!



  1. Whew, those original piasin a can sure leave a lot to be desired when compared to today’s frozen pizzas – they look like nuclear waste material glowing in the dark – ha!

  2. That is hilarious Kerbey – paisano – I didn’t know such a word even existed and found that it meant countryman or brother in Italian. That is too funny. I actually almost used my misspelling in a grammatically correct way -…” those original paisano can sure leave a lot…” ha!
