(Scroll down for video) A pizza shop owner in New York, took to social media to introduce his latest innovation, an edible pizza box.

While many people want to help the environment by using less cardboard boxes, they still want to get their pizza delivered to their home.

Vinnie's Pizzeria of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, came up with a solution for the problem.

Pizzeria owner Sean Berthiaume said that he came up with the edible pizza boxes when he was bored. Berthiaume said that he experimented with the dough while he was bored until he came up with the perfect square box for the round pizza.

However, Berthiaume admitted that he is still trying to come up with the perfect solution on how to deliver the pizza without using a cardboard box. Meanwhile, he wraps the edible pizza boxes in silver foil.

“Introducing the pizza box pizza! A pizza box made entirely out of pizza! No waste, 100% pizza and 100% delicious. No more pizza boxes cluttering up your fridge or trash. Totally PIEodegradable. The Pizza Box Pizza, only from Vinnie's!” The owner of Vinnie's Pizzeria wrote on Twitter.

The price for the edible pizza box with a pie is $40.

Vinnie’s Pizzeria made headlines last year when the shop introduced a pizza that was topped with smaller pizza slices.
