Pizza ATMs Exist
Apparently, ATM’s aren’t just for exchanging currency! These are far more widespread in Europe than in the United States, with several ATMs existing around the area. The US only has one, which is located at Xavier University in Ohio. It can hold up to 70 pizzas at a time!
Pineapple’s Place Among Best Toppings
While pineapple may be the most controversial pizza topping out there, it actually made the list of best pizza toppings! According to an article from the Huffington Post, pineapple ranked 9th among the top ten pizza toppings in 2013. We bet this will spark a debate amongst lovers and haters alike!
The True Origins of Hawaiian Pizza
You may think that the name “Hawaiian Pizza” may point to the fact that this style first originated in Hawaii, right? You’d be incorrect! Believe it or not, the true origins of this recipe actually come from Canada! It was first invented in the 1960s by a pizza maker in Ontario who was tired of having the same three toppings on pizza.
The Strangest Pizza Topping
If you thought putting pineapple on pizza was a questionable choice, wait until you hear about this one! In certain areas of Japan, the primary pizza topping of choice is mayonnaise! Japanese mayo is prepared differently than in the US, as the flavor turns out to be much sweeter than US based mayo. However, we can’t imagine this being too appetizing to many that first look at it!
