Sam Panopoulous, who was credited for the combination of pineapple and pizza, has passed away at the age of 83.
Sam, who stayed in Canada after emigrating from Greece back in 1954, had a string of restaurants. However, he became an internet sensation thanks to his creation of the pineapple pizza.
When asked about his invention earlier this year by BBC, Sam had then following to say:
“We just put it on, just for the fun of it, see how it was going to taste. We were young in the business and we were doing a lot of experiments.”
