I'm stealing their joke too!*

A new aphrodisiac pizza is being test-marketed. Called Pizzagra, it features a heart-shaped crust.

The Pizzagra toppings include:

* Tomato, garlic and basil base: Basil is a renowned stimulant, helping to boost sex drive, fertility and produce a general sense of well being for body and mind. Garlic traditionally stirs sexual desires and has been used for centuries to cure everything from the common cold to heart ailments.

* Artichoke: The French once believed women who ate artichokes were reputedly loose.

* Asparagus spears are rich in vitamin E, which is thought to stimulate the production of sex hormones.

* Red peppers are said to stimulate circulation.

* Onions: Egyptian priests were forbidden to eat onions, as it was once believed they stirred up passions.

* Ginger, which stimulates circulation and heightens sensitivity.

* Cardamom, which contains two androgens (hormones that increase sexual desire in men) and cineole, a compound known to stimulate the central nervous system.

* Chocolate spread: Chocolate is a popular aphrodisiac containing the chemical, phenlethamine, which is released naturally in the brain when humans fall in love.

* Banana slices: Bananas are rich in potassium and B vitamins, necessities for sex hormone production.

No mention is made if that's all on one pizza. Yuck.

Thanks to The Meatriarch for indirectly pointing the way to this story. His link to Naked News led me to watch their preview, which had the pizza story. A little google action and voila!

*Oh yeah, their joke: "I wonder if it has a self-rising crust?"

I never knew that about basil. I guess I'll grow more of it this year.
