Berlusconi-inspired pizza a hot seller in Poland

Silvio Berlusconi has inspired a restaurant in Poland to create a "bunga bunga" pizza — a concoction as spicy and wild as the Italian leader's alleged sex parties.

Topped with anchovies, figs, prosciutto and a lot of black pepper, the pizza at the Warsaw pizzeria, A Modo Mio, has been a hot seller since owner Walter Busalacchi put in on the menu several weeks ago.

The Italian-Polish chef said Wednesday he created the pizza to "laugh about what is going on in Italy." Berlusconi goes on trial in Milan next month on charges he paid for sex with a minor.

He has denied wrongdoing and maintained his parties were dignified.

The pizza's flavor is heightened by figs and black pepper, words with sexual connotations in Italian and Polish slang, respectively.
