Canadian male credited with inventing ‘Hawaiian’ pizza dies during 83

LONDON, Ontario — A Canadian male widely credited with inventing a pineapple-topped pizza has died during age 83.

An necrology by his family says Sam Panopoulos had been hospitalized in London, Ontario, when he died unexpected on Thursday.

Panopoulos was innate in Greece and emigrated to Canada in 1954. He told countless news media that he done his initial “Hawaiian” pizza in 1962 during a Satellite Restaurant in Chatham, Ontario, after wondering if canned pineapple competence make a juicy topping.

Some have doubtful his claim. But Prime Minister Justin Trudeau this year released a jaunty twitter of support, referring to a plate as “a tasty southwestern Ontario creation.”

He was responding to a joking idea by Iceland’s President Guoni Johannesson that pineapple pizzas should be banned.

Panopoulos’ wake is set for Monday.
