    How to sell frozen pizza in the Netherlands?

    Brand name aside, also interesting that there is a 'Texas' flavor, marked by salami nonetheless (?)

    Bwuh? Salami? Shouldn't that be salsa or bratwurst or chorizo or kraut?
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

      Gotta love that the brand is a "Dr."

        The word 'salami' is deliberately used in the Netherlands

        I love how these pizzas are all sold as "big americans" ! Anyhow, the difference between American style and Italian style pizza in the Netherlands is 1. the crust and 2. no real cheese on the american ones + tomatoe sauce is cheap sweet ketchup in the American pizzas

          I went to a Turkish fast food place with some friends because they were freaking out over 1 euro "turkish pizza." Ah, I said. You mean "taco."

              I ate some of those (years ago) - it's largely tasteless. Tasteless pizza? Yes, the German's managed to do that.

              But maybe on purpose. Plenty of Dutch people don't like strong tastes.

              I never figured out why it's labelled "Texas." Maybe because it's the most "american" one and Texas is the most "american" place? The other flavors are ham and some other weird combos.
