Yes, you read that right. It is 100% edible and has no fabric or thread. However, in spite of spending a fortune you cannot swim wearing it.
It is technically called ‘Pizza-kini’. The new trend is launched by Villa Italian Kitchen to mark the National Bikini Day.
A representative of the restaurant explained about the staggering prize of their latest product:
“The Pizza-kini was custom fit to our model so there was no need for any fabric to be included. The custom fitting is why the price tag is so high, we want to ensure the pizza-kini is perfectly fit to the body it’s on so it stays in place. We use a pizza dough braiding that goes around the butt and waist of the model, baked in to the pizza slices, holding the suit together.”
Basically, lots of time and detailed planning is needed to make a pair and therefore the high price tag. They are made with the fresh ingredients, including homemade, hand-braided dough, sauce made from fresh California tomatoes, 100-percent whole milk mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni.
Understandably, the shelf-life is very low and it can only be kept for a week, provided it doesn’t get sandy and you keep it away from the water.
If you want to have a bite after wearing it, be sure to keep it from dirt, and “maybe take a shower first,” a representative of the group said.
