    Well, as you said, Pizza is a heterogeneous mixture of dough, sauce, cheese, and other toppings.. Other examples are oil and water, sandy water, chicken noodle soup etc. Nice To Meet You ! @mattyboyy

    Yeah blood is homogeneous. If you wanna see its ingredients tho you'd have to put it through a centrifuge @JoshKoikkara

    I wouldn't consider blood to be homogenous. It has various types of cells suspended in a liquid. Apple juice is all mixed together on a finer scale than blood, all the molecules are dissolved in water.

    Pizza is a mixture of different easily identifiable ingredients just like Salad or a sandwich, you know exactly what you're eating cause you can see it. @redbeardd

    @JoshKoikkara and @jherrera57 Blood is homogeneous because you cant see exactly what is inside the contents of blood. If you put blood through a centrifuge you can easily identify what is inside the contents of blood because some of the ingredients that make blood are denser then others. Blood contains water, red blood cells, white blood cells and plasma, I believe that's it. But that is stuff you can't see with the naked eye it must be separated. Therefore, its a homogeneous mixture.

    homogeneity depends on scale.

    @mattyboyy ok, but a mixture is made by mixing things together, you don't mix pizza ingredients together you just put them together. but whatever. @jherrera57 if you look at salt water under a microscope, you'll see its components, but its still homogenous. The determination is made at no magnification. A healthy person's blood will appear homogenous, that doesn't mean it doesnt consist of multiple parts, just that they are all equally blended together in solution.

    @redbeardd you can still mix things together and see exactly what is visible thats why there is a homogeneous mixture and heterogeneous mixture. You are talking about a homogeneous mixture where when you mix something together you can see whats in it like apple juice. A heterogeneous mixture is a mixture of ingredients and you can see every ingredient with it like pizza or salad bro.

    Basically, a homogeneous mixture you wont see whats in it and in a heterogeneous mixture you will see exactly whats in it. If you think I don't know what I'm talking about, look those two words up, but you're 100% wrong bro but whatevs.... lol @redbeardd

    @mattyboyy ok lol I think we can agree on what a homogenous mixture (ie solution) is, but pizza still isn't a mixture in my opinion. A better example of a heterogenous mixture would be oil and water, or a glass of water and sand. The definition of a mixture requires the mixing of, sure it meets the heterogenous and nonuniform appearance criteria, but by that same logic a forest is a heterogenous mixture, and so is a city simply because they have distinguishable parts.

    @redbeardd water and oil is heterogeneous because the two substances in the mixture dont't necessarily mix with each other, you can see exactly whats inside the mixture just like pizza. Pizza is a mixture of ingredients. They just aren't mixed in the way you are defining it.

    Yeah, you're right: pizza is a mixture. I guess we were both wrong about the blood: http://antoine.frostburg.edu/chem/senese/101/matter/faq/what-is-heterogeneous.shtml
