When Vinnie's Pizzeria unleashed the insane pizza that's delivered in a box made of more pizzas a couple weeks ago, even its creator admitted to not knowing exactly how you'd go about biting into the doughy monstrosity. But now, its appears that the marinara maniacs over at the Brooklyn-based shop have created a new, user-friendly version of the "Pizza Box Pizza," featuring pizza that's served in a box made of more pizza -- just smaller. And just like its big brother, the miniature version is beautiful and crazy and, well, we want one. Or three.
Vinnie's first revealed the Mini Pizza Box Pizza in an Instagram post on Friday, saying it's the snack-size and handheld version of their viral pizza creation... and that you can even use it to propose to your significant other:
Of course, that would literally be the cheesiest marriage proposal ever, but then again, the grease might help slide the ring on, right? Obviously, someone has to try this now (please send us the video and photos).
But seeing as the larger version is basically two whole pizzas covered by a big garlic bread lid, the mini version might make sense (keyword: might) if you want to get your mouth on the pizza everyone's talking about, without having to worry about them trying to deliver the giant thing sans cardboard box and potentially exposed to the delicious New York City elements. You'll just have to get over how damn cute it is before stuffing it into your face.

A small pizza shop in Williamsburg, Vinnie's went internet famous in 2016 for creating two monstrous pies: a pizza served in a box made out of pizza, and a pizza topped with mini slices of pizza. When Vinnie's isn't taking America's favorite delivery food to new meta levels, it's serving up speciality meat, vegetarian, and vegan pies, like the Florentine made with sautéed spinach, feta cheese, and chopped tomato. The space might be tiny and filled with only a few booths, but ingredients like pesto cream, breaded eggplant, and teriyaki chicken help separate it from the neighboring run-of-the-mill slice shops on Bedford.
