                wow they wanted to argue at the start pizza as a snack vs pizza as dinner but last i checked its pizza in the morning pizza in the evening and pizza at super time, cause if you put pizza on a begal you can have pizza any time ;)

                                                While testing for fresh/canned, why didnt they try making a reduction by evaporating the liquid part of the tomatoes?
