Niles pizza parlor offers Transit of Venus specials
NILES, Mich. -- To celebrate the Transit of Venus, a local pizza parlor is serving up some flavors they said are out of this world.
Pizza Transit in Niles, Michigan, is offering two specialty pizzas in honor of the cosmic event.
The owner sat down with us to explain them.
"We wanted to create a spicy pizza to be as hot as Venus itself. It's got mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, japalenos, and spicy chorizo sausage on it. This is our Black Drop Pizza. It represents the black drop effect created by Venus when it crosses the sun, so we did black olives scattered over mozzarella cheese and spinach for that one," said Sarah Brittin, Owner of Pizza Transit.
There is a deal for customers who come into the store. If you buy one pizza, you'll get a second pizza for half price and a free pair of solar safety shades to watch the Transit of Venus.
