August 20th is International Hawaiian Pizza Day, a pie made with ham and fresh (or canned) pineapple on a traditional tomato sauce and mozzarella base.
But, surprise: Hawaiian pizza was not invented in Hawaii but in Canada. There, it was made with Canadian bacon instead of ham.
Here’s the history of Hawaiian pizza.
This year, we present a recipe from Dole: Maui Pizza Rollups. It’s much faster to make than a pizza: just 15 minutes of prep time.
