Matawan serves up green pizza for St. Patrick's Day

In a nod to cultural mingling, a Matawan pizzeria is serving up green pizza for St. Patrick?s Day.

A. Scotto?s pizza slices use green dough and cheese dyed with food coloring to commemorate the typically Irish holiday. Green Sicilian pizza and garlic knots will be available as well. Mike Scotto says it?s the first time the establishment is trying it and that the idea was inspired by his young daughter, who is half Italian and half Irish.

Customers say the food looks a little strange but tastes just as good a regular pizza. However, the inspiration for the pizza says she doesn?t want to try it because of the color.
