The US Military Is Developing High-Tech Pizza That Lasts For Three Years
The dream of everlasting pizza may, finally, be within reach.
This is a prototype slice of pizza, developed by the US Army's research division. It can survive for up to three years without freezing or refrigeration, and still be edible.
Military researchers have been working on the goal of long-life pizza for years. It's described as their "holy grail."
Pizza has been one of the most requested additions to the army's MRE (Meal Ready to Eat) roster.
The key has been finding a way to stop the dough getting moist.
They also add "oxygen scavenger" packets of iron filings to the pizza's packaging.
The pizza is still undergoing development, but could be ready for deployment very soon.
