The veggie-pizza controversy

(article, Culinate staff)

If you're old enough, you may recall the hullabaloo that greeted President Ronald Reagan's efforts to have ketchup classified as a vegetable on public-school lunch trays. That effort was laughed down, but our collective memories are short, and the current Congress is trying to do the same with pizza — or at least, the tomato sauce on pizza. (For petition-signers, there's a tersely funny petition online as well as a longer screed against the new classification.)
