Black Pizza Has Come To America

Fashion goths and foodies rejoice - chic "black" food isn't just for Japan anymore. While activated charcoal has been a favorite on the health scene for some time (ahem, remember when we tried it as a cleanse?), now it's being used to upgrade your pizza.

Naples native Salvatore Olivella has created activated charcoal mozzarella, pasta, and pies for his restaurant, Olivella, in North Bergen, New Jersey. Hey, that's not a bad trek to get this 'gram. Not only does it look cool, activated charcoal reportedly aids in digestion, reduces bloating, and may even lower cholesterol. And you thought your gluten-free pizza was healthy.
