5. Hawaiian Pizza
As far as toppings go, this is the most controversial. You either hate or love Hawaiian pizza; it’s a specialty taste, and there are no substitutes for this one. A Hawaiian pizza toppings include pineapple, Canadian bacon/ham, and mozzarella/cheese. The contrast between the sweet pineapple and salty flavor of the Canadian bacon makes it a fan favorite.
Funny fact, Hawaiians did not create the Hawaiian pizza; it was invented in Ontario, Canada. Sam Panopoulos, born in Greece and moved to Canada when he was 20, and his brothers decided to put pineapple on pizza in 1962 to attract customers to his Ontario-based restaurants.
The Margherita is a favorite specialty pizza. This pizza is a traditional Neopolitan pizza recipe filled with tomato sauce with fresh tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and basil. These are to represent the colors of the Italian flag – white cheese, green basil, and red tomato. Some pizza fans will add prosciutto to the pizza topping combination.
This popular specialty pizza was invented in June 1889 by Raffaele Esposito, Pizzeria Brandi’s chef, in honor of the Queen of Italy, Margherita of Savoy, and the Italian unification. It is a much-loved pizza that has deep roots in Italian history
