US Army Almost Built A Pizza That Would Last 3 Years

When out in the field, US troops can eat a variety of foods such as chicken alfredo, beef tacos, and even Ratatouille thanks to the advancements in their Meal, Ready-to-Eat (MRE), but one food that has yet to be perfected for our military is pizza.

The US Army did get close in their latest test run, but the slices eventually turned brown during the 6-month test, and were basically inedible, according to Gizmodo.

Pizza is life, and surely troops have begged for it to be added to the combat food lineup, but there have been attempts since at least 2013, and none have been successful.

These MREs are meant to have a three-year shelf life — and at least taste decent — but they can't seem to get a good pizza recipe that will last that long and preserve its taste.

The MRE pizza slices got troops excited for a 2018 release, but this "quality issue" put an indefinite delay on the production, so there's no telling if and when the pizza will actually come out.

Until then, troops will have to make do with their chili mac and ravioli, keeping their fingers crossed that someday science will come through and let them grub on pizza while out in the field.
