Help settle a family dispute of a SOH user named Tara: is takeout pizza fast food? (UserQ)
There's nothing fast about take out pizza. Frozen from the grocery is another story
Fast food isn't necessarily unhealthy.
my dad owns a pizzeria,he doesnt premake pizzas......
To me fast food is any food that is cooked waiting for you before you order so it depends on where your getting pizza but generally no
Facemoose, not all pizza is junk food.
I'm damn glad to live somewhere where I can get non-fast food pizza almost any time of day.
The people have spoken.
Pizza is fast food!
People, it is fast food. U know why? YOU don't prepare it or cook it and there is not a "real" mess for mom to clean up after u have eaten. TADA THAT IS WHAT MAKES IT FAST FOOD, NO MESS!
FaceMoose: If your definition is correct, I'm lucky to not be any more a physical train wreck than I already am! My mom sent me to elementary school daily with a lunch she prepared that morning. To preserve the meal, she'd wrap it in PLASTIC AND/OR FOIL, then into a PAPER BAG. Mom, did you hate me?!
No. Fast food is wrapped in plastic or foil and comes in a paper bag. Pizza is junk food, but not fast food.
Nj and ny. It's like sals in "do the right thing".
@skeptisys, maybe in NJ. Most of the rest of the country buys the whole pizza at once.
It's quick, cheap, convenient, and unhealthy. For all intensive purposes, yes.
Both takeout and delivery would be.
Isnt takeout pizza sold by the slice?
I don't consider it fast food.
No because fast food is preprepared food waiting to b served, takeout pizza isn't normally preprepared.
But then I guess it depends on where you get them. Although fried food is rarely going to be good for your system.
Sadly yes fries are junk food. You would think they are just potatoes, fried in oil and salt but they have much more.
Thanks for asking :)
Emsies, ketchup is not a vegetable, tomato sauce is about 98% tomato which could be considered a vegetable.
Pizza can be a health food. Assuming the cheese is of a high quality, not too oily, and the sauce and dough has no preservatives. Fresh dough (semolina) tastes amazing. How is it bad for you?
Well, it's definitely not a vegetable.
That's an interesting dilemma. I don't know.
topsqueen: logic please
hmm dairy, veggies, meat, herbs/spices and fruit all spread on grain and BAKED not deep fried...sounds like a healthy meal that just happened to be prepped by someone else...
1. Takeout YES
2. Pizza YES
@smodcast- I literally lol-ed. Why does he hate deliciousness? Haha
Fast food is not always determined by time. I think of fast food to be anything that is not a fully rounded meal. Pizza is not a very nutritious meal so it is fast food.
It sure is not a health food!
Interesting age filters..,
If you phone in ahead before picking it up, yes.
Herm, that's called marketing.
Yes! My parents own a pizza shop. And on our sign it says "fast food Italian style" so therefore, yes!
I do believe takeout pizza is fast food.
BondiHipster: Now how did you draw that conclusion?
Not really. . .
Not if u make it by hand
It really depends, I think, on where you're getting it from and how it's prepared.
I went to 11 people where I work (9 guys, 2 gals) with your question. Though a few had a difficult time, ALL eleven agreed pizza was NOT fast food. I happen to agree. Most agreed that frozen pizza was much closer to being 'fast food', than takeout pizza. Good question Tara!
He didn't say everything that takes less than 20 minutes to cook is fast food, he just said if it takes 20 minutes to cook, it isn't.
@thinker2 so with your given logic, if that is true then eating microwavable oatmeals is fast food?
Tara is fat.
Anything that takes 20 mins to cook isn't fast food. That's restaurant food.
Seriously, there are two sides to this. Are all hamburgers fast food? Parents want kids to eat well, and imagine pizza to be the frozen crap.
@wedaslaves, you know, not all arguments are as heated as you make them out to be. At least not hot enough to burn the roof of your mouth. Seeing you on here that may your experience, but it is simply wrong, I feel for you. It is relative, like that sibling you fight with, but will fight harder for.
Obama made it fast food as a part of his liberal agenda against deliciousness....
Never thought about it like that....
Especially if it's Little Caesars crap
Really any food taken out is fast.
Ok to all that say because it takes 20 minutes to make its not fast food, does that mean if I go to Jack in the Box and it takes them 20 min to put my order together it's not fast food?
It depends on how thy make it. If they use premade frozen materials then yes but if they use fresh stuff that is not pre made then no
