Last week, Pizza Mia shared a photo of it's the latest pizza creation a "Deepdish Roni Cup & Mozza Stick Pizza made with a Garlic Knot Crust."

The owner, Brian Manning, tells Hudson Valley Post not only has the pie gotten the attention of the Hudson Valley, but people from Europe and Mexico have commented. As of this writing, the Facebook photo, which can be seen above, has been shared over 37,000 times, with over 15,000 comments and over 2,500 reactions.

Manning also told Hudson Valley Post he's had customers order the new creation from Ulster and Dutchess counties, Long Island, Albany Connecticut and Pennsylvania.

"The common theme was that they all wanted an excuse for a road trip based on the quarantine," Manning said. "We have our seatbelts on watching this thing go viral! It’s been fun! It’s amazing that it has hit Europe!"

Since early April, the pizzeria which has locations in Newburgh, New Windsor and Highland has been donating a large cheese pizza and a box of gloves for every order donated to a Hudson Valley hospital, medical facility or nursing home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Manning says they are delivering donated pies several times a week.
