ANN ARBOR, Mich./PRNewswire/ — As of January 1, 2002, over 300 million people may be using the new European currency, Euro, but they won’t be using it to get the same toppings on their pizza! While some of the 12 countries feel they may be losing part of their identity with this change, Domino’s Pizza has discovered the different and unusual ingredients and toppings consumers enjoy on their pizza will keep them unique. Here are some examples:

— The #1 topping in the Netherlands is the Shwarma (grilled lamb).

— In Greece, a favorite pizza is the Hellenic, which has pepperoni, onion, green pepper, fresh tomato, Greek olive, feta cheese and oregano.

— Fresh cream is used in some pizzas instead of pizza sauce in France.

— In Belgium and France, the “Four-Cheese” pizza consists of goat, blue,      reblochon and emmental cheeses, while Spain offers a “Five-Cheese” pizza with blue, mozzarella, provolone, cheddar, and Parmesan.

— The most popular toppings in Portugal are the Portuguese sausage (Linguica)    and Spanish sausage (Chorizo).
