A great-grandmother has finally tucked into a pizza after vowing never to touch Italian food after he husband was held captive by Mussolini's forces. Retired dinner lady Audrey Prudence, 94, boycott all Italian food with her husband Jack Prudence - after he spent a year in Italy as a prisoner of war. Jack died ten years ago, aged 89, and the former wartime nurse slowly embraced spagetti bol. But now she decided it was time to try her first ever pizza - ending an astonishing six decades without tasting the world's most popular food. And her choice of a Hawaiian with its ham and pineapple topping proved irresistible after just one bite with her saying she "could not wait to try another." Mrs Prudence from Abridge in Essex who has three grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren enjoyed a whole two slices.
