    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?

    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."

    Interesting:

    Dr. Oetker is a German company that produces baking powder, cake mixes, yogurts, frozen pizza, pudding, cake decoration and much more.
    Also included in the portfolio are a maritime freight business, a bank, a publishing company, an insurance outfit, a brewery and a number of high-class hotels all over Europe.

    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.
