    No, it is not a pronoun. A pronoun replaces a noun in a sentence, and in this case, Jamie. As you can see Jamie has not been replaced, otherwise the sentence would be "She ate her pizza."

    'Her' is an adjective which shows possession of the pizza, which is Jamie's but cannot replace the noun in the sentence (Jamie is the only noun so: "Ate Jamie pizza." would make no sense.)

    Good luck!

    Jess is wrong. Her is actually an adjective. It is describing the pizza by saying who it belongs to. A pronoun is I, you, he, she, they, etc.
