So... if you didn't know, I am American.... and I have no damn clue what this means.

  1. Congratulations, now you know how us Brits feel every time we're in the USA staring at an "English Muffin". ;-)

    Mostly "American" is invoked as a slightly anachronistic way of saying "hey kids, this is cool". You see and hear a lot of random snippets of English in German advertising too - some of it hilarious. Still, in the case of the Pizza at least it is making a valid distinction - American pizza is what you might refer to as "deep pan" or "deep dish", as opposed to Italian pizza, which has a much thinner, crisper base and usually only a light amount of topping.

    1. I'd guess "american style" has become synonymous with "thick crust" in germany because that's the style Pizza Hut - pretty much the only thing most people knew as "american pizza" - is selling here.
