Green pizza may not sound so tasty, but that's exactly what a New Jersey pizza place dished up for Saint Patrick's Day.

Scotto's Pizza is giving customers a taste of green.

Normally, when food looks like this, it goes in the trash!

"Usually green cheese is moldy," explained Mike Scotto, of Scotto's Pizza.

But you don't need the luck of the Irish to eat this green cheese.

Scotto's Pizza in Matawan is serving it on purpose, for St. Patrick's day.

"Basically doing green pizza, first time we ever tired it I out," explained Scotto.

"Green coloring, green cheese. Just something different.

This place is taking the phrase 'going green' to a whole new level.

It's not just the cheese, but the crust is green, too.

They also have green Sicilian and green garlic knots.

Don't worry, it's not moldy.

All it takes is the right amount of food coloring, and some imagination.

The customers say it may look odd, but tastes the same.

The inspiration behind the new look was the owner's granddaughter.

"My daughter's half-Irish and half-Italian and we decided to bring Irish into pizza making," stated Raffaela Donnelly.

Oddly enough, some won't try the pizza.

Because, well, it's green!

For some, it's not that easy eating green.
