there’s a lot of debate about the ole hawaiian pizza 🍕 bet you didn’t know this though …
#tdil that hawaiian pizza actually originated in canada 😳
yep … you read that right! of all the places in the world, hawaiian pizza comes from canada! in fact, the dude who invented it wasn’t even hawaiian … he was greek!
his name was sam panopoulos and he was a greek gent that grew up in canada (sadly he died earlier this year 😢). other than inventing the hawaiian pizza, apparently his career of making pizzas was pretty standard … i find it pretty sad that he’s not known better! 😭
anyway, sam invented the pizza in 1962, naming it the ‘hawaiian pizza’ due to the brand of canned pineapple that he used 🍍. apparently he was the first dude to create a pizza with ham and pineapple and this was a big thing … no one else was making decent pizza, let alone mad pizza that mixed flavours in such a way!
in actual fact, sam was a bit of a maverick … and i rather love that 😍 for that reason, even if you find hawaiian pizza to be the devil, i think we should all take our hats off in memory of sam panopoulas – the pizza maverick 🙂🙌🏻👌🏻
ta rahhhh 😅 #tdil
