Domenico Crolla

Artistic Pizza 
Pizza Art

Born in Glasgow, Scotland of an Italian father who ran a cafe there, Domenico Crolla is a 45 year old restaurateur who has literally turned pizza making into an art form. Crolla uses tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese to create intricate celebrity faces for his edible images. After making a pizza depicting martial arts star Bruce Lee, Crolla received a thank you note from lee’s daughter. Further celebrity pizza portrait faces followed (try saying that quickly a number of times).

Here are some of his pizza art works. . .
