What is Hawaiian Pizza

Hawaiian pizza is the world’s most underappreciated pizza. Hawaiian pizza is a delicious blend of sweet, salty, savory and cheesy tastes served on a crispy crust. It is made with pineapple, mozzarella, and ham.
In each slice, melty mozzarella cheese encases layers of salty bacon and juicy pineapple chunks.

The specialty of the Hawaiian pizza is, adding pineapple for the topping of the pizza.

The Origin of Hawaiian Pizza

Hawaiian Pizza was invented in the little village of Chatham, Ontario, Canada. Hawaiin pizza was founded by Sam Panopoulos who is a restaurant owner and chef, has been known as “The Father of the Hawaiian Pizza” for his restaurant, Satellite Restaurant. The Satellite Restaurant began by serving American dishes such as cheeseburgers, but by the 1960s, they had expanded their menu to include Chinese-American cuisine and, later, pizza.

Hawaiian Pizza swiftly spread across North America, with its unusual Canadian origins, and can now be found in many pizzerias and frozen food aisles. Despite the fact that Hawaiian pizza is expanded in popularity after its origins in Canada, the division between fans and detractors of pineapple pizza grew quickly.

The sweet pineapples create a good flavor contrast to the savory ingredients and give the pizza a lot of freshness. Pineapple provides the sweetness, ham provides the savory taste, salt provides the saltiness, and cheese provides the cheesy flavor.
