Okay, I know what your thinking; "He's writing about pizza?" I know it sounds pretty boring for a post on this blog, but the differences between what we as Americans are used to and what we encountered in Europe, I found interesting enough to write a quick post about.
We had this combination of Salami and Pineapples a few times in Germany, because its similar to a Hawaiian (but much better!) The Pizzas there can be very different from what Americans are used to. Both in odd toppings (fried eggs, peas, corn, seafood, rocket, have fun trying to get American pepperoni! Download the menu to see for yourself some of the differences) and in sizes. German pizzas are more commonly sold as individuals rather then a family size. We ate multiple times at Panther Pizza in Markgröningen (near Stuttgart), a couple times at sidewalk cafes in Munich and once in Switzerland (only place near our hotel that would take Euros and wasn't over €60 per person! It was probably just that we were near the airport but Swiss restaurant prices are outrageous!)
