Sam Panopolous, the Greek migrant who created Hawaiian pizza from his restaurant in Canada in 1962 adding pineapple, ham, bacon and other toppings, has died aged 83. "Along the way, we threw some pineapples on it and nobody liked it at first," he said. But after that, they went crazy about it. Because in those days nobody was mixing sweets and sours and all that. It was plain, plain food," he described his pizza as an experiment first.
