DEAL WITH IT

PIZZA IS A vegetable – at least according to a decision made by the US Congress. Who knew? American lawmakers have ruled that the amount of tomato paste in pizza sauce means that pizzas can be counted as a vegetable.

So long as they keep dealing with major issues like these, I can sleep easy at night.

Also, it's a little silly that something so unhealthy could now be counted as a vegetable, which by and large tend to be good for you

amirite.

EDIT: for those who didn't read the article, the reason for the change is fast-food companies who don't want pizza to be taken of school's menus.

What happens if the pizza in question is a meat feast?

I just don't understand why you Americans have such a problem with eating vegetables. Maybe your parents need to learn to cook.

So does 5 a day count as 5 slices or 5 pizzas?

It said it's a veggie because of the amounts of tomato in the sauce. Tomato is a fruit, fail, I hate being an American on an international forum.

Depends what you have on it. I can't imagine shit load of cheese and meat being too healthy.

This is utterly retarded. It doesn't even make sense. How can a mixture of multiple ingredients, including dough, be considered a vegetable? Dammit Congress, why you so dumb?

Quote by Article
MSNBC reports that politicians had been lobbied heavily by the frozen food industry who didn’t want to see a major revenue stream cut off given how often pizza is found on the menus of school canteens in the US.

It is people wanting to justify continuing to sell pizza to children so they don't lose money.

After some debate, Congress voted that anything containing two tablespoons of tomato sauce can be labelled a vegetable, putting pizza into the vegetable category.

Today's lunch:

Chicken noodle soup
Corn
Hot roll
Bloody Mary?

Dem vegetables.

If pizzas are vegetables, then bacon cheeseburgers with lettuce tomatoes onions are vitamin pills.

Steak with BBQ sauce on it is also a vegetable. It has onion and tomato in it. It's actually two vegetables.

So pizza can technically be classified as a side dish?

This is amazing.



So...what do you have with pizza now?
