Wait hold up. That brand is called what in Italy? Here it's called "dr. Oetker"


killer_ragdoll

Yeah same in Britain. Dr Oetker, the company that makes only cake decorating things (icing, sprinkles etc.) and pizza for some reason 🤔


CrispyBacon_87

Doctors typically specialize in certain areas. Dr. Oetker clearly isn't just a GP.

And remember, if you're not sure about something, rub it against a piece of paper. If the paper turns clear, it's your window to weight gain.


TheLowlyPheasant

That quote pops in my head every time I use a napkin to soak up pepperoni grease on my pizza


Groovatronic

I love when they go to krusty burger and rub the burger on the interior wall and it becomes so transparent a bird flies into it


BillGoats

You can't fool me with this again. I tried it on several dates, and most of them immediately left when I started rubbing the paper in their face.


madammeovaries

I was like “I doubt there’s corn on the pizza. Surely it’s a yellow bell pepper.” But nope it’s corn.


Kotengu15

To any non-Americans here, if you call up Domino's or Pizza Hut and ask for corn on your pizza they're going to hang up on you.


314JimBob

I had corn on my pizza two nights ago. It also had hen of the woods mushroom, fontina and garlic. It was excellent. Granted it was a bit more upscale than domino's. Domino's pizza is good for two things, sodium and greese. And sometimes that's exactly what I need.


artaxerxes316

Well if it isn't my old friend Mr. McGreg, with a leg for an arm and an arm for a leg!


Pinglenook

Jokes aside, Dr Oetker was a German pharmacist who in 1891 reinvented baking powder (which had already been invented 47 years earlier in England, but maybe he didn't know)


Gorm13

He also happened to have a doctorate in botany, with a dissertation on pollen characteristics. Weird how that helps sell pizzas now.


killer_ragdoll

Cakepizza Oetker, PhD


elfy4eva

I don't know where Dr. Oetker got his PHD but what I do know is his ristorante pizzas are pretty damn tasty as freezer pizzas go!


CrispyBacon_87

They're so tasty. It's one whole pizza per person, right?


hot4ivy

According to nutritional information on the back of the box the serving size is ½ pizza. But let's be honest. Everyone who buys these eats the whole thing by themselves.


wilburforce5

At least 1


EspacioBlanq

In Czechia, they have many instant cooking/baking products (instant oats, pancakes, cake mixes) and a brand of chocolate yogurt


Rykon420

They also do clear [jelly], it's called "Wackelpudding" or "Götterspeise"


killer_ragdoll

Aww you changed it, I liked the original description

Dr. Oetker in Denmark as well


bedroom_period

1 here in Italy we do not let doctors make food. 2 the oe sound does not exist in Italian. 3 k is a foreign letter and tk in very hard to pronounce. It's Cameo, pronounced like K U like in cut M A like in said A like in what


Rivilan

> 1 here in Italy we do not let doctors make food. Only Italians would say this sort of thing. He's legit guys.


MouseRat_AD

You make yourself a grilled cheese after your ER shift? Straight to jail.


the0TH3Rredditor

You put bacon on that grilled cheese and don’t call it a melt, believe it or not… Straight to jail, right away.


ThePlumThief

The rigorous culinary courses in med school, determining if that last hot dog in the packet is still safe to eat, or exactly how much seasoning to put in ramen so you don't go into sodium shock.


whistleridge

> 2 the oe sound does not exist in Italian Oh, it doesn’t exist in English either. But that doesn’t stop them. :p


borntobewildish

As a Dutchman I'm used to pronounce the OE like Germans say U, instead of Ö. Calling it Dr. Utker is an easy way to piss off my German coworker.


hoodie92

>A like in said >A like in what Such confusing words to use lol

Probably not even made with real Americans, smh


Pixelkoch

Its just a cameo.


Yoram001

In the Netherlands this brand is called “dr. Oetker”


Bente187

Germany too


summerfr33ze

The US too. They have Dr Oetker at my local supermarket. Among the 30 other brands of frozen pizza lol. Not this specific pizza though, I think just the Dr Oetker "Virtuoso"


longislandtoolshed

The Virtuoso kale & bacon is my absolute favorite frozen pizza and my grocery store stopped carrying it for some dumbass reason. I will never forgive, and never forget.


Yoram001

It is a German brand i see!


forgotaboutlaye

In Canada, it's also called Dr Oetker.


Vacuity--

almost everywhere except italy apparently


bekah130885

UK too.


viccityguy2k

Canada too. Very good. Some of them are actually imported frozen from Germany lol


LordOfDorkness42

We have Dr. Oetker here in Sweden too. Always deeply respected 'em for their honest in advertising, actually. They're like... THE only brand of frozen food where the food looks exactly the same on the package, as after you've cooked it. Even down to rough number of slices of mozzarella and such.


randomseerperson

We have dr oetker mayonnaise in india , they only sell mayonnaise here , i didn't know they sold other things


Spank86

Word up.


deknegt1990

Couldn't remember, the greatest leading role in the world, no. This is just a cameo.


Even-Objective-3386

I'm ready to bet that in Naple there is a "John Smith's American Pizzeria" where people with cowboy hats that speak holding their hands weirdly still prepare Italian pizzas selling them as American ones.

"Howdy howdy howdy!"


jack3001

No but we have a restaurant chain called old wild west


comptejete

PresumedSapient

[deleted]

It's real Americans, just little ones.


Nelac-Guile

Correct I’ve never seen a pizza with those toppings ever. Once I got a pizza with a Vespa on it. Can’t beat authenticity.


ysisverynice

The only odd thing is maybe the yellow bits? What is that, corn? Otherwise bell peppers, pepperoni, mushrooms... All normal. Except usually the bell pepper is julienned. What's weird about it is the color and that yellow stuff is really throwing things off. If it's yellow bell pepper then ugh... I just don't know what to say except... Whyyyyyy???????????? Edit: it's corn. Whyyyyyy????????


Eusocial_Snowman

You know what? I don't care if it's racist. I would fuck with some corn pizza.


Shaggytwig

Is that corn and bell peppers? I don't normally get Supreme so I'm not sure about bell peppers, but corn seems new to me. Edit: Seems like others think the American may be the thickness of the pizza. As an American I can say I've seen all sorts of thicknesses from crispy thin to as thick as the box details so unless thin is the norm for Italy, I dunno if I agree. Edit 2: The US likes it Thicc, got it. After some web searching, it may be more accurate to call this thick pizza Chicago style but I think it would have way more toppings.


[deleted]

Supreme is usually bell pepper, onion, pepperoni, sausage, and often black olive and/or mushroom.


Shaggytwig

I guessed the others but bell peppers eluded me.


unwantedposterboy

Bell peppers have been a common pizza topping for the last several decades or so. Corn, however, is fucking [criminal.](/r/PizzaCrimes) _____ Edit: [Since people don't trust their eyes.](https://i.imgur.com/CO8UMBn.png) It's corn. [Not cool.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aw-2KuHIYyo) _____ Damn, the Big Corn mafia is all up in here trying to push their propaganda.


BigBoyMaverik

Corn is actually comon in places like Brazil, in the portuguese pizza (they aren't Really from Portugal, It's Just a name, like "french bread" is not french)


PencilMan

People killing each other about pineapple on pizza, meanwhile Brazilians are eating corn on pizza and nobody’s noticed.


msebast2

The corn is not even the half of it. You know how American pizza places always have shakers of "parmesan" and red pepper flakes? Pizza places in Brazil have bottles of mayonnaise on the table. They slather it on and spread it around with a knife.


bewbsrkewl

I'm choosing to believe that this isn't true. I refuse to google it.


5point5Girthquake

They’ve slipped under the radar with that crime for too long


mejok

Also fairly common in Austria..not that that matters


Aztecka2016

I had to take a second look, lol. My brain immidiately assumed the yellow thing was yellow bell pepper, it didnt even occur to me it was corn.


Oculi_Glauci

Yep. The packaging says “salami, ham, peppers, mushrooms, corn, and tomato sauce.” As an American second language Italian speaker, reading that was very confusing.


o--_-_--o

My guess is 99.9% of pizza restaurants in the US do not offer corn on their menus.


ottersaredopebro

As an American, I’ve had my fair share of pizza. I’ve never been to a place that offered corn as a topping. I’m sure some do, but I’d say your guess is correct as it’s likely a small number.


bwave1

All of the Greek owned pizza places around me in Maryland have it as an unofficial topping, as their "Mexican Pizza" has corn on it. (medium hot salsa, diced chicken, onions, corn, sliced jalepeno peppers) So you can certainly ask for and receive corn on your regular pizza as well.


RGJ587

Wait. So in Italy, corn is on the big American pizza, and the America, corn is on the Mexican pizza... We just passing the corn pizza blame down the chain here huh? Wonder what pizza in Mexico has corn on it and from what country they designate its origin?


bwave1

Wait until you hear about what they pawned off for Hawaiian pizza!


sanitizer_32

Corn is also a popular topping on pizza in India. I think it goes well with cheese.


SteveDougson

Koreans put corn on their pizzas too. They also like to drizzle various sauces on them and they're served with pickles


PewterButters

What’s more American than corn?


deacon6six6

I feel like putting (actual) corn in everything is way more European than American. I’ve never been served corn on pizza in the colonies


a_duck_in_past_life

What kind of American refers to themselves as "the colonies"? 🤔


xc68030

An ancient one


PursuitOfHirsute

The native Americans called it "maize."


Reyny

This Pizza was made by a German company and we call it "Mais".


RedRoker

Pretty sure the French also call it "Mais"


GeneralStormfox

Mais oui.


Verkato

Tactical error, we Americans put corn *in* everything, not *on* everything.


PewterButters

Yeah we hide it as corn starch, hfcs, corn oil, anything but actual kernels.


asielen

Even with pizza there is often corn meal on the underside of the crust, just never as a topping.


tophergraphy

Forbid fiber


MikeHeu

Bbq pulled pork


GT5Canuck

Sweet corn is popular as a topping in Europe, apparently.


macphile

They're mental for corn in Japan, too. Pizza, salad, everything. Can't say I've ever seen corn on a pizza in the US, or listed as an option?


Key_nine

In the UK, Subway’s have corn as a topping too. Who wants a corn sandwich? Corn to me (an American) is like the worst topping for a sandwich, I just associate it with cheap tv dinners who add corn because it is a “vegetable” and keeps the manufacturing costs down as its easy to produce and process.


khoabear

Corn is cow food in America


DeUsuahiaALaQuiaca

Also car food


BoltonSauce

It's got the juice tho


PapaBradford

I'd give it a shot, sounds all right


DameonKormar

Bell peppers on pizza is amazing. I've never seen corn though, even at "artisan" shops that have weird toppings.


Arctyc38

I've seen corn on southwest style chicken pizzas and 'elote' pizzas. It does seem a little out of place on a supreme.


kaisong

Corn is common on pizzas in Asia.


kathatter75

It seems to be popular every BUT America.


PiFlavoredPie

There’s a lot of chipotle-style make your own personal pizza as-many-toppings-you-want restaurants these days that have corn as an option, so there’s enough interest even in the US to stock it I suppose.


E_l_0

A pizza with a thick layer of dough is often referenced as "american" in Europe - it has nothing to do with the ingredients or topping.


alekspiridonov

If you get that pizza in Italy, do you have to hide it under a bunch of other groceries as you walk around the store?


cutofmyjib

"Mama! Mama! That man is buying American pizza!" "Cover your eyes Giuseppe!"

Free flogging? I don’t have to pay anyone! This just keeps getting better.

Nothing is free you have to buy the pizza first


ackzsel

This is how they get you.


Catnip4Pedos

It's fine, when you get to the checkout they just scribble out the word pizza with a marker pen

Quasi. Lol.


YakLongjumping9478

I used tò live in Italy and i brought back Kraft Mac and cheese, I felt like a smuggler and every time I ate one there was an extra layer guilt, but I just like it so much, is such a comfort food for me.


Slam_Burgerthroat

I grew up on Kraft Mac and Cheese and I’m the same way. Even if I were as rich as Elon Musk and I could afford the most expensive food every day I would still occasionally crave a $1 box of Kraft.


lurk4ever1970

Once you have a million dollars, you have to eat it with Dijon Ketchup.


yanky79

If I had a million dollars, I'd buy you a green dress


Noir_Amnesiac

I don’t understand the hate some people have for stuff like this. It was something I grew up with since we didn’t have a lot of money but it was never something I ate and wished for something else. We shouldn’t haven’t to feel bad about our guilty pleasures. These days I get the Walmart brand shells and cheese because they’re just a little more and mix the with a can of chili. Add a cherry coke and it’s my fav comfort meal.


BassnectarCollectar

For a sec I thought you meant mix the Cherry Coke w/ the Chili Mac, and I was like yo wtf


friendIyfire1337

No, the cashier already punches you straight in the face


Chris2112

You can prevent the cashier from punching you if you hold out some spaghetti in your hands and start to break it in half; the site alone will have them running in horror.


_Ghost_CTC

No. This pizza wouldn't even register as an issue. For reference, Italians make an American style pizza with hotdogs and french fries. It has nothing to do with Americans enjoying those as toppings on pizza. I understand it is quite popular among Italians.


AUniquePerspective

**Supreme** in the bottom corner refers to the toppings... but someone still needs to explain the corn. In Canada, pepperoni, mushroom, greenpepper goes by several various names including Supreme (but it's regional) but we almost never use corn.


hungeringforthename

Based solely on photographs I've seen of foreign supermarkets, it seems like much of the world believes we eat a lot more corn than we do


TropicalPolaBear

Yeah we barely eat corn, it's high fructose corn syrup and corn oil that's in almost every single food


lpreams

The vast majority of the corn we grow is [field corn](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Field_corn), used for ethanol, livestock feed, corn syrup, corn starch, etc, while the corn we actually eat is [sweet corn](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sweet_corn)


os_kaiserwilhelm

Hey, don't forget popcorn. Americans love themselves some popped corn.


Alexstarfire

I wouldn't say no to corn on my pizza but I'm not going to put it on there myself.


hungeringforthename

Dear Foreign Pizza Manufacturers, This is how most Americans feel about corn in most contexts Best wishes, USA


pyronius

Corn belongs popped, buttered on a cob, boiled with the crawfish, or in some varieties of soup. In any other form, it should first be rendered unrecognizable (ex: corn meal or corn syrup).


enigbert

and [hotdogs](https://www.oetker.de/unsere-produkte/culinaria/american-hot-dog-style)...


TheCruicks

neither do we in the US. supreme is generally sausage, pepperoni, bell pepper, onion, mushroom, black olive


Hvarfa-Bragi

Fuckin' yum.


tacoyum6

Contrary to popular belief, Italians do some weird pizza toppings. Like hot dogs and french fries, "Snoopy Pizza"


slabby

I wonder what Obvious Plant's Sneppy pizza would have on it


Goats_in_boats

Barbie legs and rubber bands


Domenicoh

This is what my family prepared for us one day when we visited Italy. They loved it, we did not lol


Holyvigil

The corn is like we need more stuff that actually comes from America all we got is tomatoes. Aesthetic over flavor.


Kongsley

Only ever seen corn on Pizza in Japan.


jblah

Popular in Korea too


Accurate_Koala_4698

The only place I’ve seen this as a commonly available topping was England


oneangrywaiter

First time I encountered corn on pizza was in Budapest.


tonyrizzo21

In the US (NJ at least) the thicker doughed pies are referred to as Sicilian. Our regular pizza is the thin crust.


pgm123

Sicilian is square, though, isn't it?


PlantsAndBeetles

That photo on the box really doesn’t look appetizing


EbolaNinja

They have the same brand where I live too. Never tried this flavour, but the BBQ pulled pork one is definitely the best frozen pizza I've ever had in my life. Not as good as real pizza obviously, but it's absolutely top tier frozen pizza.


hkric

bread looks like leather..


Merfen

It looks like cut up hot dogs and macaroni and cheese.


1zclasswar

Looks amazing for $3


Cilph

I've had these. They're among my favorite actually... *hides*


ihackedthisaccount

This is not about the topping. The "American style" refers to the thick dough as opposed to the thin dough of the Italian pizza. There's many different "American style" pizzas with different toppings.


blueg3

There is not one "Italian" pizza. Neapolitan pizza has a thin crust, but Roman and Sicilian, at least, do not.

This is by far the funniest and most discussion worthy part of this picture, hahahaha!


[deleted]

For real though. I live in a college town that attracts a ton of students world wide, there is always talks at bars the first week of classes how massive and fat Americans are. I am also in TX, which doesn't exactly help.. people do be big here.


all_too_familiar

Believe it or not, Americans don’t put corn on pizza.


nahkamanaatti

Cameo is Dr Oetker in Finland also and they don’t sell this pizza here. They have different frozen pizza sub-brands(?) like ”Ristorante,” ”Rustica,” ”Casa di Mama” and ”La Mia Grande.”


Beastjones543

Ok I understood that it’s called “American” because of the thick dough but who in their right mind puts corn on pizza


little_bohemian

Domino's and Pizza Hut have several pizzas with corn here (Czechia), so I really didn't expect that to be the part that weirds people out... I like the mild sweetness, it's a bit like pineapple pizza but less controversial, lol.


AdreNBestLeader

Yeah, its pretty dope, not sure why corn of all things would be controversial lol


giving-ladies-rabies

We have Domino's in CZ? I've never seen one


Haber_Dasher

I've lived in the Midwest of the US, the south, the west coast, and the east coast, and pizza is one of my favorite foods. I've never ever seen corn as a pizza topping anywhere, on any style of pizza.


little_bohemian

Well then I guess it's just them adapting to local tastes instead of showing us real American pizza, heh. I love seeing wild takes on pizza from around the world. It's just stuff on bread in the end, it's pretty much all good in my opinion.


8181212

Japanese and Koreans


Pathfinder6

Am in Italy right now, near Florence. The pizza menu at the restaurant tonight had a pizza with corn on it. No pineapple, though.


Beastjones543

Well shit😭


ReluctantRedditor275

That honestly *seems* like something we'd do, but I've never seen it before in 4 decades of U.S. pizza consumption.


Sloogs

I mean despite the fact that it's not a super common topping in NA it still sounds pretty decent to me, not sure why anyone would be out of their mind to try it. One of the great things about pizza is that it's so flexible!


LaTalpa123

Italians do! Corn and prosciutto (ham but better) is a classic, you usually find it on menus as "pizza mimosa".


scottchiefbaker

$3 seems like a good deal!


martman006

I’m surprised nobody has commented on this yet! Like does Italy not have inflation? That less than $3 right now!


dr_auf

Brand frozen pizzas are 3 euros now in Germany. They where 1,50 - 2 euros before 2020


unimpressivewang

Here in America we’ve let our food get monopolized by PepsiCo and nestle and frozen pizzas are now $8. Makes me cry


Pekonius

Holy shit, I can walk to the kebab shop and get a fresh pizza for that price


Splitje

Frozen pizzas are like the cheapest junk food you can get in Europe


bankrobba

How else are you going to convince someone to buy this pizza *in Italy?*


AfganPearlDiver

Me, an American, has no freakin clue what American pizza is supposed to be like.


GhostalMedia

Something cooked by a teenager and driven to your house in a 2002 Corolla.


Only_at_Eventide

It doesn’t have corn on it, I assure you that.


ciao_persona-

The typical American pizza is the peperoni one


PooperJackson

It's always interesting to see other cultures interpretation of your own. Gain so much perspective on how warped yours is of theirs.


DeepFriedDrywall

JJ McCullough has a great [video](https://youtu.be/7Xgd79wuriQ) on this topic, it's interesting to see what other countries consider "American" even though a lot of it is way off base and stuff no American would normally eat. He also has a [video](https://youtu.be/THpzXWKCoQE) about food appropriation in general around the world. For instance, I had associated tempura with Japan until I learned that they just popularized it, and that it was originally introduced to them by the Portuguese.


danz409

as an amarican. i can say i have NEVER seen a pizza with corn on it... until now.


Nixplosion

This is like when you go out of state and see "Philly cheese steaks" on a menu and it's got peppers and tomatoes and all kindsa stupid bullshit on it. Not here man, not here.


shoonseiki1

No wonder Europeans think American food is such trash
