Hawaiian Pizza 

Despite its name, Hawaiian pizza is not actually from the Hawaiian islands. It originates from Canada. Sam Panopoulos, a Greek-born Canadian created the Hawaiian pizza in his Satellite Restaurant back in the year 1962. 

Panopoulos was inspired by his Chinese chef who combined sweet and savory flavors into dishes. He then threw cheese, cooked ham or bacon, and pineapple chunks to pizza and served it to his customers. The customers loved Hawaiian pizza and soon it made its way to the rest of the world. 

Everyone knows the great pineapples on pizza debate. And if you have never tried Hawaiian pizza, pineapple might not be the first topping to come to your mind.
