This Military Grade Pizza Does Not Go Stale for Years

The U.S. Army Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center has just achieved a breakthrough, literally decades in the making: Pizza that stays fresh for up to three years. Since the early ‘80s the military research facility has been creating “meals ready-to-eat” (MREs) that are lightweight and can easily be carried into combat, but the complexity of a pizza field ration has alluded our military’s greatest minds—that is, until now. This month, the scientists have created the first ever pizza MRE prototype, in what will surely be remembered as one of the great technological breakthroughs of our time. In an interview with the AP, the researcher who runs the pizza lab said, “It pretty much tastes just like a typical pan pizza that you would make at home and take out of the oven or the toaster oven. The only thing missing from that experience would be it’s not hot when you eat it. It’s room temperature.” Yeah science!
