According to the report at http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=CNG.32bc00250df8502d22e8f206780b432f.131&show_article=1, Italian prosecutors believe that pizza in Naples may be baked in ovens lit with wood from coffins dug up from the local cemetery.

It takes quite a bit of fuel to fire Italy's WBO pizza ovens day in day out.  Classicly designed ovens are not designed for combustion efficiency, retaining heat or getting the heat generated into the pizza.  Most of the heat is wasted.  Italy's population density is high.  There are no vast woodlands to draw fuel from.   Firewood must be valuable.  It makes sense that scrap wood would be sought after.  Digging up caskets is pretty depraved.

They are being environmentally conscious. They are recycling.

They must really be dying for a slice of that pizza.

Seriously, though, how viable is wood that's been buried for burning?  Wet buggy slightly rotten wood should be useless for an oven, right?
