NEWCASTLE, N.H. — Coal fired pizza made with wood pellets is headed to Newcastle University in the United States and will be shipped to the New Jersey area for use as a pizza topping.
The New York-based company, Coal Fired Pizza, announced Tuesday that it had signed a memorandum of understanding with New Jersey-based N.J.-based Woodworkers Local Union, Inc., for use of the products in the state.
The wood pellet pizza is made using wood pellets made from the coal fired production of coal.
The pizzas will be distributed by the company at the Woodworkers Union’s upcoming national convention, which will be held May 30-31 at the New York City Marriott Marquis Hotel.
Coals for Pizza is the latest in a string of coal fired products made in New Jersey.
In January, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie signed into law a bill that creates a coal-fired power plant incentive program for the state, providing incentives for coal fired power plants to generate electricity.
On Thursday, Christie signed a bill to expand that incentive program by allowing for coal-burning power plants of up to 5 gigawatts, up from the current 1.2 gigawatts.
