So the good folks at the American Congress have confirmed what spotty teenagers across the world have always known: pizza is a vegetable, and as such forms part of the daily essentials to healthy development. Like, totally dude.
4 things you never knew were vegetables (besides pizza)

This is good news for all serious foodies who have been clamouring to have this ambiguous state of affairs cleared up. Now it’s a case of waiting patiently for Congress to put right all the other food misconceptions that still linger. Because pizza is not the only vegetable that has been hard done by. Oh no, there remain countless other foodstuffs waiting for justice. Here’s 4, for starters. Maybe one of our enterprising politicos might like to take up the matter instead of droning on about the Budget?
Hamburgers – the biggest misnomer ever. Hamburgers are typically made using a chunk of dead cow. What do cows eat before being taken to that big pasture in the sky? That’s right, grass. And what is grass if not a primitive vegetable? Ergo, hamburgers are merely processed veggies.
Vodka – it’s made of grains and potatoes, for feck’s sake. What other proof do you need?
Starbucks’ Blueberry & Banana Cookie – Fine this could never make the grade as a vegetable. It’s a fruit, obviously. Duh.
Chocolate Cake – well it sure as hell ain’t meat is it? Which means it can only be a vegetable.
Add pizza to this list and you have your 5 a day. National obesity problem? What’s that?
