Shapes – Hawaiian Pizza

So I found this sh1t. Not really sure if it is new or not, but it says ‘limited edition’ on the packet.

Honestly I don’t really care about putting pineapple on pizza, I don’t really like it, but I don’t hate it either. I would fight Icelandic dictators to the death for your right to put pineapple on a pizza though.

The Hawaiian Pizza was created in 1836, when Italians flocked to work in Hawaii during the oil shale rush and many tragically died of scurvy when they couldn’t find quality Italian ingredients to put on their pizzas. Benito Da Montessori, a desperate pizza maker in one of the struggling settlements, had the brilliant idea of putting pineapple on his pizzas. It was a huge success. The sweetness of the pineapple complemented the flavours of the ham and the extra vitamin C helped the Italian immigrants maintain good health during the hot days of shoveling shale deep in the shale mines.

The above is totally bullsh1t of course, because everyone knows that the Hawaiian pizza was invented in Canada. By a Greek dude.

No seriously. Why would I make that up? You think I am in the habit of making up wild stories just to gain a following on social media?

Oh, right.

Always check sources before believing anything you read in the Meta universe. But actually the Hawaiian pizza WAS created by a man named Sam Panopoulos, at the Satellite Restaurant in Chatham, Ontario, Canada in 1962. Look it up, it is actually on wikipedia and everything.

Impressively this did taste like Hawaiian pizza. Well it tasted of pineapple and ham at least, and that is pretty much all that was required to be deemed an true to the flavour claims on the front of the packet. If you are dead against pineapple on a pizza, you can pretend it is ham and pineapple flavour.

A common issue with shapes is that the flavour isn’t enough to overcome the density of the cracker and I am happy to report that wasn’t the case here -ample flavour – these were actually pretty decent.

Look it up – 6.5/10

Bonus sh1t: Pineapples are not apples, nor do they grow on pine trees.
