Snuggle up in this delicious pepperoni pizza

EDIBLE BEDDING?: The pizza bed looks so realistically like the gooey surface of a pepperoni pizza that you’d probably be tempted to either take a bite or wait for it to cool off.

If you're always dreaming about pizza, why not dream inside a pizza?

A mock-up bed adorned with a pepperoni duvet, sauce sheets and crust pillows has the Internet drooling, and it's designed by Brooklyn-based artist Claire Manganiello.

Right now, the pizza bed may just be a concept, but Manganiello told Mashable that she wants to make it real for her own bed and the pizza-loving masses. 

This project makes sense given the enormity of the food's following on the Internet - and also for Manganiello, who is a pizza fanatic herself.

"I am from Connecticut, which fed me some pretty awesome pizza in my youth. But then I took a detour for undergrad in Virginia which has turrible [sic] pizza," she said. "When I came back up north for portfolio school, I realized how much I had taken good pizza for granted and I should live every day like it was my last slice ... and honor it accordingly with pizza-themed art."

The idea behind her pizza-themed art pieces started to take shape one cold winter night while Manganeillo and a friend were walking between bars.

"We were talking about how nice it would be to be able to crawl under the cheese layer on a piece of pizza and then eat your way out."

So, maybe Manganeillo hasn't exactly figured out the "edible" part yet, but she is intent on making a functional pizza bed (at bare minimum) her focus this summer.

You'll want to keep your eyes open for a Kickstarter page. And, while you're twiddling your thumbs waiting for your very own pizza bed, have a look at Manganeillo's other projects at Claire and Emily.
