The first time I heard about Hawaiian pizza was freshman year of college on Super Bowl Sunday. My roommates wanted to order Papa John's, and someone suggested Hawaiian pizza. Being the token New Yorker who had never eaten Papa John's because there was a legitimate pizzeria on every street corner in town, I not only cringed at the idea of getting our pie from a franchise establishment, but the mere suggestion of pineapple on it threw me over the edge.
They ordered it anyway, and after much kicking and screaming, I finally caved and tried a slice. My first thought? Weird. Totally weird. It grew on me, though, and four years later, my accomplishments as a 22-year-old included a magna cum laude double major degree, an accepted job offer in the business world and a tolerance for pineapple on my pizza.
This Hawaiian pizza burger takes things to the next level by marrying the traditional American burger with Hawaiian pizza. With melted mozzarella, a thick-cut slice of ham and some caramelized pineapple, it's a savory-sweet explosion of weirdness that just works. Apparently those Hawaiians know a thing or two when it comes to pineapple.
