Switzerland also has a border with Italy, the home of Pizza. Is this not an opportunity for pizza makers in Livigno, near the Swiss border, which is enjoys a special tax status where Italian VAT is not paid.

Italian pizza??? Joy, what a strange idea. And don't you have to go through a tunnel in order to get to Switzerland?

Lago Maggiore is much closer.

And we German pizza bakers will not use Swiss cheese any more. So there!

Quite possible when all that divides them is an imaginary border between two countries which is in essence all one planet earth parceled according to territorial instincts.

It is not an imaginary border as Switzerland is not in the EU. Different slices for different spices.
