If you’re looking for some saucy summer fashion, then look no further than Villa Italian Kitchen’s edible pizza bikini. The Italian restaurant chain debuted their limited-edition pizza-kini—a bikini made entirely out of real pizza ingredients—to celebrate National Bikini Day and it’s sure to be a cheesy addition to any summertime wardrobe.
According to the press release, the pizza-kini, which costs a mere $10,000, is made of homemade dough, fresh California tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese and pepperoni. Each custom-fitted bikini can also be personalized with additional toppings, such as peppers and onions. “This summer, we wanted to celebrate items that Americans truly love,” Mimi Wunderlich, Villa Italian Kitchen’s director of communications and digital marketing strategy, said. “After a few brainstorming sessions, and with assistance from our talented food stylist, Jessie Bearden, the Pizza-Kini was born.”

The pizza-kini is available today only to celebrate National Bikini Day, which is observed each year on July 5. Customers can order their very own “unique” swimwear through the Villa Italian Kitchen’s Facebook page. If “the most delicious swimwear on Earth” just isn’t your thing, however, there’s plenty of swimsuits out there that are designed with pizza patterns—sans grease.
This isn’t the first time one of Villa Italian Kitchen’s seemingly ridiculous ideas has gone viral. Earlier this year, the restaurant chain debuted their “alternative facts” pizza in the wake of Kellyanne Conway’s “alternative facts” defense of President Donald Trump’s Inauguration Day crowd sizes. The “zero-calorie” pizza, according to their Facebook page, was loaded with mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, bacon, sausage and more. “This pizza is positively presidential – it’s going to be YUGE.”
They’ve also embraced other internet holidays, such as their offer of $3.14 pizza for National Pi Day.
