I came across a very intense and savory salami recently at a great pizzeria in Frankfurt (Germany). The pizza guys however are from Napoli and sell their amazing and traditional pizza since ages with a salami I have never seen somewhere else and which I could not identify up until now.

Does anyone have an idea, what type of salami is used here (see pictures below)? They call it salami but it doesn't have to be a salami in a narrow sense. It is very finely ground and looks rather like a typical sausage (like mortadella/lyoner etc.) when cooked and raw.

I would be very happy about any hint that helps to identify the name of this specific salami.

    What was the name of the pizza you ordered? That might be a clue.

  • Are they both the same salami?

  • Is it possible this is a German salumi?

Salami is a generic term referring to all sorts of salt cured or cooked sausage, from a variety of countries and cultures. My guess is that pictured is German fleischwirst or extrawurst (Austrian cousin). The Italian version is mortadella, but typically has white chunks of fat and pistachio nuts.

  • Well put! In fact, the sausage looks so much like a German "Fleischwurst" or like a Turkish "Sucuk" but it is not the same. It assumes it is something for the Napoli area in Italy.

  • @Daniel I would be happy to be proven wrong, but I don't think this is a salumi from Italy, or from Campagna specifically. Perhaps it is just "marketing" to call it Napoli de Luxe.

    @Daniel Virtually nothing about that pizza is “traditional Neapolitan”. (That’s not a bad thing; Naples doesn’t have exclusive license to decide what good pizza is like.) It’s likely that local sausage is being used.

  • But as a German, I can’t pinpoint a German sausage that would fit…

  • @Sneftel: Yes, might be a local one. They have been operating their pizzaria for more than 50 years now and might have move away from traditional italian ingredients in the meantime. However, I don't have any idea what local sausage this might be.
