Bento! #96: Another one of them inexpensive pizzas in Japan

Another one of them 250 yen pizzas from the supermarket. This time it says "Arutobaierun" - apparently the Japanese romanization for "Alt Bayern," or "Old Bavaria." Alt Bayern is presently in Germany near the Czech Republic and Austria. I'm just guessing but it might be referring to the sausages? I am also reading that it is Napori Fuu - Napolitan Style, plus it has 3 kinds of cheese: chedaa, gouda, and mottsarera (cheddar, gouda, and mozzarella). As usual, I sprinkled parmesan, crushed black pepper, and Tabasco (タバスコ/tabasuko) on it and ate it, sandwich-style, with some Pepsi and half of a 50 yen bunch of shredded cabbage with parmesan, crushed black pepper, and Caesar salad dressing. Yeah, I don't like cabbage too much as a salad, too, but hey, this is a pretty good lunch all for only around 300 yen.

If you're looking for stuff like this at your local supermarket here in Japan, the brand name apparently is "La Pizza," or ラ ピッツァ, or ra pittsa. In many cases though, note that the Japanese would pronounce pizza as piiza or ピーザ, as in the Leaning Tower of Pisa with the 's' as 'z'; not as pittsa. Oh and by the way, these pizza pies are approximately 10 inches (25 cm) in diameter. 十 or 10-インチ, or 二十五 or 25-センチ.
