Chicago Blackhawks fans now have a pizza to brag about

A pizzeria in Chicago has created a pie in honor of the Blackhawks during their Stanley Cup playoff run.

Chicago and pizza go hand in hand. So what better way to support the Chicago Blackhawks than with a cheesy likeness?

Punky's Pizza and Pasta in Chicago has come up with the ultimate fan meal.

Overall it looks like a pretty good version of the mascot and definitely tasty.

There are a few rules though.

According to the pizza joint's manager, who is also the genius behind the idea, you can only buy this special pie on game days and it comes whole, not cut into slices, in case you need that pizza-selfie.

"We don't want to ruin the opportunity for them to take their picture with it," Punky's owner Vince Scarlata told DNAinfo Chicago.

Scarlata said they sold 20 of the pies on Friday. 

"We're just doing it for the fun of it, and we're doing it to show our support for the Blackhawks more than anything," said Scarlata.

The pizza, which sells for $18.95, is topped by mozzarella cheese, plus black olives used for the logo's hair and eye and peppers representing its multi-colored feathers and earring.
