I always find the international differences on simple things fascinating. The most recent one I was thinking about was pizza.
A thousand years ago I was in the US and went to a pizza place for dinner. I ordered my pizza along with the toppings I wanted, a fairly standard Supreme pizza by Aussie standards. I had to repeat the toppings a number of times, and then when the pizza did come it was still missing one.
I’d thought pizza was fairly uniform. Apparently not.
I wonder if that is still the case, or whether social media has meant we are a lot more homogenised?
Here is what a Supreme pizza looks like these days from a popular Aussie takeaway chain:
Crispy rasher bacon, pepperoni & Italian sausage, topped with fresh mushrooms, capsicum, crumbled beef & juicy pineapple, finished with vibrant spring onions & oregano
Not that much different from when I travelled all those years ago.
Can you guess which of the toppings didn’t make it to my pizza? (pineapple)
Do you have a Supreme pizza at your local pizza place? What toppings does it have?
