Swiss restaurant serves Kerry pizza near Iran nuclear talks site

Whether or not Secretary of State John Kerry succeeds at nuclear talks in Lausanne with Iran, his name will live on in this lakeside Swiss city — as a pizza.

Garnished with chicken, bacon, onions and rocket salad, the "John Kerry mini-pizza" went on sale Monday at an eatery as part of a menu that includes a small salad and a desert. The price? 18 Swiss francs — just over $18.

Proprietor Francoise Tribolet says she thinks the offering will be popular, although it is too early to tell just a few hours after it went on sale. Asked why the name, she says "because he's here."

Tribolet says the pizza will join other — full-size — pizzas on the permanent menu named after President Barack Obama and other statesmen.
