    Was Bernie Ecclestone on this Congress by any chance? Sounds like exactly the sort of thing he would some up with.

    Whats wrong with the tomato sauce on Pizza's? I think its the cheese and grease that is the problem with pizza's :)

    An authentic Italian pizza uses fresh tomato sauce and there is nothing wrong with that, pretty healty :)

    Ah but we are forgetting that a tomato is technically a fruit.

    Tomato is a vegetable. Content differentiates vegetables and fruits mainly. But of course both fruits and vegetables contain a lot of valuable and important components.
    The plant itself is in the family of potatoes btw.

    Actually, botanically, the Tomato is a fruit. It is just treated and cooked as a vegetable

    Anyways, the sauce is a product made from a vegetable. Especially because of the added components.
    And the pizza can be max. vegetarian, but I prefer Hungarian (salami rules!) or Bolognese (spaghetti/macaroni/penne/lasagne/pizza, all good).:)

    A glossy red, or occasionally yellow, pulpy edible fruit that is typically eaten as a vegetable or in salad.

    You see I'm not a botanist. Product taxonomy tells it's a vegetable. Nutritional value wise it's like a vegetable, it's used like a vegetable. + here it's told in every school it's a vegetable, and tbh I never read the opposite anywhere until now. But I guess it doesn't really matter:)

    yes tomato it's a fruit same for eggplants,cucumbers and zucchini.
    There arent a line that divide clearly fruits from vegetables,we can say that fruits born from flowers (zucchini) vegetables from plants,but this definition it's not complete imho

    I think it's the seeds that make it a fruit.
