NEW YORK -- As if golden-brown dough topped with bright red sauce and creamy-white cheese wasn't an attractive enough color combo, more colorful -- but debatably appetizing -- versions of pizza are now available.
According to the New York Post, crayon maker Crayola has joined forces with Baltimore, Md., pizza maker Joe Corbi's to manufacture bake-at-home Crayola Pop Art Pizzas.
The pizzas will be sold in kit form (available for school and youth group fundraisers) and include all one needs to make a Technicolor pizza.
Blue and pink crusts will be decorated with nearly fluorescent green and orange tomato sauces. The cheese, thankfully, remains white.
The author of the report said the resulting pizza tastes "like a low-budget freezer-case pizza."
Equally unappetizing is the new Packers Colored Cheese Pizza, a green and gold creation made by Jack's Pizza, a subsidiary of Kraft Foods Inc.
According to the News Chronicle, the pizza uses green and gold-tinted mozzarella.

The flacks at Jack's claim it tastes the same as its regular pizza.
The pizza is being sold in Wisconsin, northern Illinois and southeastern Minnesota, and has the "official" designation from the Packers.
