An inside look at the development of pizza MREs (meals ready to eat) for our soldiers
Show Notes

For decades, members of the US military have relied on MREs (meals ready to eat) for sustenance while in combat. At a military research facility outside of Boston, work is constantly being undertaken to develop new dishes and meals for soldiers, which recently led to the debut of an MRE pizza. On this episode, we are joined by Michelle Richardson and Julie Smith -- two food technologists who both played pivotal roles in the development of this new dish.
