Scientists design pizza with THREE-YEAR shelf life as luxury ration for front line US troops

A pizza with a staggering three-year shelf life has been developed to satisfy hungry US troops. While Uncle Sam’s soldiers may claim to be fighting fit, it seems they just can’t do without a slice of the popular convenience food. And faced with the demands of soldiers posted abroad who were reportedly desperate for pizza, scientists at the Natick Combat Feeding Directorate got to work.

The task proved a particular challenge, but they have now come up with the ‘shelf stable pizza,’ which is now in the final stage of taste testing. The new extra-long lasting version is likely to shortly be added to the American Army’s menu of MREs, which stands for ‘Meal, Ready to Eat.’

Jeremy Whitsitt, of the Army Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center, said: "Since the dawn of time, almost, pizza has been one of the most requested and sought-after components in an MRE." MREs are nutritional staples for combat troops engaged in the battlefield and have received undesirable nicknames including "Meals Rejected by Everyone" and "Materials Resembling Edibles." But each MRE provides 1,300 calories of high fat and sodium nourishment geared specifically for active combat duty.
