A Leeds mum-of-two got a little more than she'd bargained for when she placed an order for her favourite calzone at her local takeaway.
Jane Harvey couldn't wait to get her mouth around her favourite doughy dish when she ordered the Italian folded pizza from Soprano's Pizza on Boggart Hill Drive in Seacroft earlier in February.
But she was shocked to find out she had actually placed food delivery platform Just Eat's 500 MILLIONTH order.

Just Eat surprised the lucky customer with a flight to Italy - paying homage to the country’s origin of the cuisine.
Jane said: “I cannot believe it, I never win anything in my life. I’ve been ordering from Soprano’s for years, and to think something as simple as getting my favourite calzone has got me a trip to Italy.”

Soprano’s Pizza also received an electric scooter.
Owner of Soprano’s Pizza, Mr. Hussain, said: “I’ve been serving pizza to the local community for many years and it’s great to hear that I have placed Just Eat’s 500 millionth order. I’m particularly thankful for the electric scooter, which will help with our growing takeaway business, so I’m over the moon.”
