Well... I never groan at other people for their personal taste - and looking at some English food discussions here there are far better reasons. I find the average Migros curry powder fits an chicken and onion pizza fairly well.
But you are German, not a country known for scaling the heights of sophisticated cuisine. Fancy a sausage

Groan for making me sick at the thought.

What kindo of curry do you recommend for the pizza, btw? Mutton? Pumpkin? Tofu?
The exact same stuff you will find in curry wurst, curry ketchup and so on.

So sorry for not being able to use the correct term and if I in anyway have offended your heritage please accept my apology....

However, I can assure you one thing.......on the container in which that yellow powder was bought text said CURRY.

What is the problem then?

Curry powder, then. Not simply curry.

There is no problem; eat as you like. My father used to put kashmiri masala on his pizza. We, of course, poked fun at him for hours, as we will with you.

This has nothing to do with heritage, simply civility.

I do actually, but Swiss sausages are unfortunately worse than their curry. Most of them would have brought the butcher into jail in medieval Germany...

I take proper German cuisine (which is hardly known outside the country) over English food any day - unless you count in all the good stuff the immigrants brought to England. The cuisine of the English immigrants is typically superior to the one of the immigrants in Germany...

Swiss people look at you as if youre from Mars if you try something different, like Avo and Banana and sundried tomatoes and maybe some bacon with pineapple on a pizza.. Its THE MOST delicious thing in the world!

Re: How Is Domino's Pizza in Switzerland?

OK. To the most important question.

Knife and fork or fingers?

I'm very much a slice it and eat it with me fingers (slightly folded for stability)sort of person. I find it odd when people eat it with a knife and fork (not to mention the awkwardness of the first cuts as the plate wobbles everywhere).

Re: How Is Domino's Pizza in Switzerland?

I will agree that Swiss sausages are as bad as their beer. But unlike your beer, your sausages are still average. Now, the Poles and Italians know how to make a good sausage!

The traditional cuisine in Swabia can be above okay. And fish seems to be treated well all over Germany. But otherwise, see above pic.

As for the English, it's a tough call between them and you guys as to who's worse. But at least they were pro-active and travelled the world seeking better food. Having said that, they make great pies, very good fish&chips, and know how to wrap themselves around a sandwich.

Re: How Is Domino's Pizza in Switzerland?

I'm very intrigued by this "Greek" pizza mentioned on the thread. What is it? Where does it come from? Is it a North American invention, or does it actually come from Greece?

I never saw anything like that when I lived there, but I never saw hummus, either. Greek cuisine tends to be very localised like that.

Educate me!

I am using it as a reference to a certain style of pizza in N America associated with a very special cultural phenomenon of Greek restaurants that served Italian food mainly with certain Greek dishes on the side. The pizza is baked in a pan, with a thicker, oilier crust. Usually, the cheese is on top of the topings. The name of said restaurants are always something like "House of Pizza"

Re: How Is Domino's Pizza in Switzerland?

Pizza, guys, focus.

If you like sausage on a pizza, Don Leone in Zurich makes one called "Colesterolosa" or something similarly honest, which includes salami, salsiccia, gorgonzola (I think) and whatever other artery clogging deliciousness you could want.

And one of the best pizze I've had was in Bellach, a place called Taverne. Heaven.

Usually, the cheese is on top of the toppings.
This clearly the best way to construct a pizza (sprinkled with paprika or herbs). I've just eaten lunch, but I'm craving pizza now. Damn my winter appetite.
