Dude, Where's My Peperoni Pizza?

While you're in German-speaking Switzerland, you wouldn't want to be ordering a 'pepperoni' pizza.
You wouldn't if you were vegetarian, anyway. But, just so you know, if you were expecting your 'pepperoni' to look like this:

This, would come your way instead:

A 'peperoni' pizza, indeed.
The term pepperoni is a corruption of peperoni, the plural of peperone, the Italian word for pepper (the fruit, not the spice). -http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pepperoni

This little story was inspired by the adorable peperoni glass beads I was given by my Italian friend :)

  4. I had to google Pepperoni pizza for discovering that you mean Pizza alla Diavola (devil-style)!!! :)
    And I'd like to warn that you won't get so many peppers on your Pizza ai peperoni!
