Hawaiian Pizza

Did you know?

Hawaiian pizza is not from Hawaii… It’s Canadian! . The pizza’s main toppings are pineapple and pork (Ham?) – two Hawaiian staples but it was a Cnadian of Greek descent who claims to have first added pineapple to pizza.

His name is Sam Panopoulos and he was a chef at a pizza shop in Chatham Ontario in the 60s

I had pineapple in the restaurant and I put some on, and I shared with some customers and they liked it – Sam Panopoulos

Hawaiian is a favorite with Australians but is one of the least popular in the United States, with pineapple ranking third in a pill of least favorite pizza toppings, sentiment shared by the president of Iceland.
To each their own huh?
