This Cheeky Pizzeria Is Serving an ‘Alternative Facts Zero-Calorie Meat Lovers’ Pie

Villa Italian Kitchen is poking fun of the Trump administration with this “diet” menu item

In a world of alternative facts, pepperoni and sausage are diet foods.

President Donald Trump’s advisor Kellyanne Conway made headlines last weekend for referring to the inauguration crowd size numbers as “alternative facts” in an interview with NBC’s Meet the Press. The hashtag #AlternativeFacts has taken on a life of its own since then, and one pizza chain is cashing in on the popularity of the non-sequitur with a “zero-calorie meat lovers pan pizza.”

Villa Italian Kitchen, a fast-casual Italian chain owned by Villa Restaurant Group, posted the “#AlternateFacts Pie” on Facebook, much to the amusement of its customers. As the restaurant said, “It’s going to be YUGE!”

The pizza is loaded with bacon, pepperoni, ham, sausage, sauce, and “100 percent whole milk mozzarella,” for maximum irony. Despite this onslaught of heart-attack-laden toppings, it *miraculously* contains zero calories. Plus, it contains six slices instead of the usual eight, so be careful if you’re handling this monstrosity with tiny hands.
