Not in Hawaii

When I was in Hawaii for my honeymoon, the local pizza shop had no idea what I was talking about when I ordered this. Now I know why.

The Greek-Canadian man who said he was the first to put pineapple on pizza has died at the age of 83. According to an obituary by his family, Sam Panopoulos had been in hospital in London, Ont., when he died suddenly on Thursday.
