US Military Creates Pizza That Lasts Up to Three Years

Military Pizza

 

Three-day old pizza tastes like crap, so I can’t imagine what three-year-old pizza will taste like. Granted, pizza is one of the most popular fastfood dishes, and while you and I take it for granted most of the time, there are others out there who have to do without–like deployed soldiers, for instance. In fact, the US Military has received numerous requests from soldiers about pizza MREs (meals ready-to-eat), which prompted them to start working on ready-to-eat pizza two years ago.

Pizza prototypes have begun leaving their ovens, with projected shelf lives of three years. Topping options include pepperoni and turkey pepperoni, and those who have tried the early prototypes compare it to pan pizza. Michelle Richardson, who is a food scientist at the U.S. Army Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center, explains: “You can basically take the pizza, leave it on the counter, packaged, for three years and it’d still be edible.”

Sounds pretty awesome, doesn’t it?
