WHY DO THEY CALL IT HAWAIIAN PIZZA
Hawaiian Pizza is one of the best, unconventional pizza combination around. Right up there with Margherita and Buffalo Chicken, Hawaiian Pizza takes all the great aspects of pizza, the crust and cheese, and ups the flavor level with pineapple and ham!
The sweet pineapple contrasts so well with the salty ham and the melty cheese that you can’t simply resist it! Turns out that the inventor of the Hawaiian Pizza wanted to use pineapple together with ham and named it after the brand of canned pineapple he used on the pizza.
Sounds perfect for sliders doesn’t it?
