Hawaiian Pizza Is Not Hawaiian!

Hawaiian pizza is my favorite pizza. I can devour one medium Hawaiian pizza in one sitting; of course, when I am hungry. I was surprised to learn that Hawaiian pizza was not "born" in Hawaii. Italy is known for their delicious pizzas. I learned that beautiful people of Italy hate my favorite Hawaiian pizza. I have no clue why they hate it. My guess is they find it more delicious than theirs. Anyway, Hawaiian pizza is not Hawaiian. It was not invented in Hawaii. My favorite pizza was born in Ontario, Canada. It was created by a Greek-Canadian named Sam Ponopoulos in 1962! No wonder why Canadians love Hawaiian pizza; it tastes Canadian! I wonder what will our friend @sabtraversa say. She is from Italy, although she promised in one of her comments that she won't shoot me for being obsessed with Hawaiian pizza, she might change her mind now. What is your favorite pizza?

@Behindtheguitarbar . . That means it is not your favorite. So, when you go to the drive-thru . I am guessing.this is how you order [ "Can I have a pepperoni, please!" The attendant may say - - "No, we don't have pepperoni!" Then you ask - - "What do you have?" The attendant responds - - "Just Hawaiian!" Then you say -"Well, I am hungry . . just give me a slice, please!"
I have eaten the late Mr Ponopoulous's pizzas and they are to die for! He had the Satellite restaurant in Chatham, which is a town near to where we used to live. And still to this day his nephews run a eatery, Quo Vadis, which as the best panzerotti I've ever tasted, and wonderful pizza as well. My nephew works for them. No Hawaiian pizza didn't come from the islands, it didn't even come from the US.
