Bella Napoli restaurant owner Domenico Crolla has made a name for himself in the culinary world and among pizza lovers everywhere. As you can imagine, the Italian chef isn't famous for the typical cheese slice but his handcrafted pizza art.

Crolla meticulously layers cheese and sauce directly onto pizza pies to create these amazing celebrity portraits and recreations of famous artworks. Some prominent faces and masterpieces to get the cheesy treatment include Jay-Z, Jeff Koons, Beyonce, Rihanna, Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, and even Keith Haring's iconic dancing figures. While Crolla's illustrations look like they have simply been stenciled onto the dough at first glance, the melted mozzarella on his pizza pies have actually been hand-carved into intricate stands of hair, eyes, noses, lips, and even clothing too. Click through to see some of our favorite pizza illustrations, and try not to get too hungry.
