Military Researchers Are Close to Perfecting Pizza MRE Recipe For Soldiers

Soldiers in the field have been asking to have for this for years and are calling it the holy grail of ready-to-eat meals for soldiers. Military researchers are close to perfecting a recipe for pizza MRE’s (meals ready to eat). MRE’s have been issued to soldiers in field of combat since replacing canned goods back in 1981.

A U.S. military research lab in Massachusetts reports to be close to perfecting a pizza MRE recipe that doesn’t need to be refrigerated or frozen. Researchers and scientists at the U.S. Army Natick Soldier Research and Development Center get more and more requests each year from soldiers for pizza in their rations.

Researchers have been testing the recipe on and off for a few years, but have struggled with the moisture in the tomato sauce making the pizza dough soggy over time, which would create a haven for bacteria and mold to grow. Recently the researchers made a brake through in preventing the moisture from spreading with the use of sugar and syrups that constrain the moisture from spreading about the dough and making it soggy. The team at Natick also added more acidity to the pizza sauce to further protect from the growth of bacteria and they added iron fillings to the inside of pouch to absorb any air pockets. 

Michelle Richardson, one of the scientists that works at Natick labs says, “You can basically take the pizza, leave it on the counter, packaged, for three years and it’d still be edible.”

The pizza MRE is still in the developmental stage, so most soldiers haven’t gotten the opportunity to taste it yet. Jill Bates one of the researchers who runs the lab says, “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.” Former Army lieutenant colonel, Daivd Accetta has also tasted the pizza and liked it. Accetta said, its important for soldiers in the field to have foods that they can enjoy.
