America has more pizza brands than the home of pizza, Italy. Yet, they have not tried to pull this trick before, a bikini made of Pizza. The Villa Italian Kitchen – a quick-service pizza chain based in New Jersey has announced the launch of the Pizza-Kini, the world’s first most mouthwatering bikini to celebrate National Pizza Day on July 5. Made from real pizza wit real cheese, this limited-edition two-piece Pizza-Kini, that will retail for $10,000.
This in no way a simple bikini, Villa Italian Kitchen hired Jessie Bearden, a New York City-based food stylist to design and handcraft delicious slices of the Pizza-Kini. Made from freshest ingredients, including homemade dough, hand-braided throughout the top and waistband, 100 percent whole milk mozzarella cheese, sauce made from fresh California tomatoes and topped with delicious pepperoni. The summer accessory is available for full customization – options include a selection of toppings like sausage, peppers, and onions, and personalized fittings to fit any body type.
“We are excited to announce the launch of the Pizza-Kini, a truly one-of-a-kind bikini, available on National Bikini Day,” said Mimi Wunderlich, Director of Communications and Digital Marketing Strategy for Villa Italian Kitchen, adding “This summer, we wanted to celebrate items that Americans truly love. We look forward to providing this unique style to the pizza and bikini loving public this summer – we are confident it will be a hit.”
The $10,000 price tag includes everything from the initial consultation and measurement session, creation of the customized suit – including topping preferences – and final fitting. Placing an order for this once-in-a-lifetime bikini is as easy as sending a direct message via Villa Italian Kitchen’s Facebook page.
