Berlusconi Pizza with Reindeer

Finnish humor at its best.

The Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi was famously quoted as saying he had to “endure” Finnish food during a visit several years ago. So it certainly amused me when I found out that the a Finnish pizza chain has named one of their pizzas in his honor.

Thumbing their noses squarely at Berlusconi, this version of the Italian specialty features Red Onions, Mushrooms, and Smoked Reindeer. We ordered two pies the other night and they were delicious.

I’m pleased to read that news of this has reached the Italian papers. I’m sure the Prime Minister had a good laugh when he heard the news.

    What's in a name? Humor at its finest, I may say so.

    What´s in the reindeer meet?

    I saw the plastic pack from kitchen in Kotipizza restaurang. 60% reindeer meet 30% like protein from pigs.

      Really? I’ll have to ask next time I go there. That sounds pretty disgusting.
