Two favorite pizza toppings in France.
- In Taiwan, the preferred toppings are squid, crab, shrimp, and pineapple (often together). In Brazil you can get yours with mashed bananas and cinnamon. In Japan, they prefer mayonnaise, potato, maize, and bacon. Mexicans like chorizo sausage and jalapeno peppers.
This, from last week's Financial Times story on pizza around the world. More:
- In India, the fact that Hindus cannot eat meat from cows meant that Domino's had to replace pepperoni with a spicy chicken sausage. Most pizzas sold there are vegetarian. In Japan, where no word for pepperoni existed, they introduced it.
In Tokyo, where buildings are numbered not in sequence along streets but according to the date they were constructed, Domino's outlets each have a full-time employee whose job it is to find locations on the map and tell drivers where to go.
No country in the world has so warmed to Domino's as Iceland, which has 11 Domino's branches for its 280,000 population.
