»Bismarck« is the name of a traditional Italian pizza with tomato sauce, mozzarella, ham and a fried egg. In 1862, the then Prussian Prime Minister Otto von Bismarck gave a speech to the budget committee of the Prussian House of Representatives in which he claimed that »blood and iron« [Blut und Eisen] were needed to bring about change. The phrase was mistakenly translated in Italian as »blood and egg« [Blut und Ei] and Otto received a pizza named after him.
