June 30 (UPI) -- A New Jersey-based pizza chain is celebrating the upcoming National Bikini Day by offering a $10,000 pizza bikini made from real pizza.

Villa Italian Kitchen, a pizzeria chain founded in New York and based out of Morristown, N.J., announced customers willing to shell out $10,000 can get a custom-fitted "Pizza-Kini" for one day only July 5, National Bikini Day.


The restaurant said it teamed with New York food stylist Jessie Bearden to craft a bikini from dough, which is braided at the top and waistband to keep it in place, as well as 100 percent whole milk mozzarella cheese, tomato sauce and pepperonis.

"Each of Villa Italian Kitchen's Pizza-Kini's are fully customizable, from choice of toppings like pepperoni, sausage, peppers and onions and more, to its personalized fitting to the body type of each customer," the company said.

Each one-use-only bikini costs $10,000.

"The cost of the Pizza-Kini includes an initial consultation and measurement session, creation of the customized suit -- including topping preferences -- and final fitting. Those interested in placing an order for the most delicious swimwear on earth can do so by sending a direct message through Villa Italian Kitchen's Facebook page," Villa Italian Kitchen said.


"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," said Mimi Wunderlich, director of communications and digital marketing strategy for Villa Italian Kitchen.
