VICTORIA, British Columbia -- When Villages Pizza owner John Papaloukas saw pizza appearing in media reports of food that wouldn't be allowed in B.C. schools, he knew he had to set the record straight. So, he sent his pizza to a forensics lab for testing.
 
Villages sent several pizza samples to a lab in Sidney, B.C., which conducted a complete nutritional analysis of the product. The results came back showing that, with whole wheat dough, Villages Pizza qualified in the "Choose Most Often" category.
 
"It was important for us as a business to be able to qualify the caliber of our product," Papaloukas said in a news release. "Our health-conscious consumers want to be confident about what they are buying and they are going to evaluate their choices, whether it is families, parent advisory committees or our regular customers. It was a positive step in repositioning pizza as a healthy meal choice."
