It's time for another edition of Adventures in Shilling, in which we fight shilling the best way we can, by shaming tasteless, unscrupulous shills into submission. Well, that's the plan, at least. Fight shills yourself by dropping offensive links to la@eater.com.

Well lo and behold, just who was spotted at Penn Station (NYC) hawking frozen pizzas and giving out free totes? Sweet talker aka Mr. Sugar Lips Fabio Viviani. Shouldn't he be running his very new eatery Firenze Osteria? Apparently not. Fabio was recently spied handing out Dr.Oetker pizzas. And what exactly is a Dr.Oetker frozen pizza? Per the website: "Italy’s top-selling frozen pizza is finally being introduced to pizza lovers in the United States. Dr. Oetker is the NO.1 in Italy and is coming with the best seller Ristorante to the US. Dr. Oetker (urt-ker) Ristorante pizza has quickly become a favorite brand of thin-crust pizza among consumers throughout Europe and Canada. And now the United States can enjoy the taste and the atmosphere of an Italian Restaurant for a fraction of the price while dining at home." Aha, Italy's top selling frozen pizza plus Italy's number one Top Chef export...
