Hawaiian pizza is a type of pizza that always consists of a cheese and tomato base with toppings of ham and pineapple and or mushrooms.[1] Hawaiian pizza does not actually originate from Hawaii.[2] Although it has been conjectured that it derives from toast Hawaii, a German sandwich,[2] it seems to have been invented in 1962 by Sam Panopoulos in Chatham, Ontario, Canada.[3] It is the most popular pizza in Australia, accounting for 15% of pizza sales.[4]
