Our first audio: Is pizza a vegetable?

2 Comments 14 February 2012

By Celine Bazzi and Marouf Hamade

HEAR what Unis Middle School students say about the “is pizza a vegetable” question in this interview.

The question has been making the rounds since Congress passed a bill about tomato paste, essentially making it easier to count pizza sauce as a serving of vegetables. This is a big deal in school cafeterias nationally.

The bill did not actually mention pizza, but you know how these things get started …

This is the first audio interview we have posted. Check it out!

    It is so sad that that they passed a bill about tomato sauce in the pizza a vegetable. Also tomatoes are fruit not vegetables. So how could tomato sauce a vegetable.^__^

  2. I like the interview but, I don’t think pizza is a vegetable because I always thought it is just a lunchtime food and not just a food that you can eat anytime. But sometimes I do think it is a vegetable for all the toppings they put on it like olives, onions and all other kinds, too. So, what I’m trying to say is sometimes I do think pizza is a vegetable for lunchtime but not the ones that only have cheese.
