As I was reading my emails I couldn’t help but get distracted by the news of an impending special tax in specific States in the USA on Pizza calling it a Junk food.. I didn’t know whether to cry or feel offended or hurt or just disbelief…. How could this food, with such history..and with healthy ingredients be insulted and called a junk food!
Since when are tomatoes, olive oil, mozzarella cheese, flour- a junk food. It is a healthy food and is a staple in the Italian, Italian-American and now American diet. Junk foods are foods made up of mostly chemicals or saturated fats..not pizza. Pizza is a healhty food and if they need proof,we can show it to them. If you would like to join me in the Pizza is a Health Food Movement..please write your congressmen and congress women and governors and tell them that Pizza is a Health Food and you are offended that they would even considering discouraging people from eating this healthy food by putting a special tax on it. If you would like a letter to email to your congressman,please email me at email@example.com and we will send you a pre made letter to educate your congressmen and congress women and legislators on the health benefits of this Slow Food!
