Pizza Art Portraits

David Ham-eron, Margarita Thatcher... and Kate's never looked tastier: The artist who makes celebrity portraits out of PIZZA.

Artist Prudence Staite has found a tasty outlet for her art — by creating pizzas of famous faces. So how does she do it? Incredibly, there's no trickery involved. Prudence, 33, who is based in Gloucestershire, says: 'I create the face freehand, working from photos. 'First of all, I'll usually make a pencil sketch on paper. Then I draw the design onto the pizza base with tomato puree.'

Then the trickiest part: filling the large spaces with, say, ham or chicken, and leaving small patches of the tomato sauce underneath to pick out the facial details. She sets some extra rules for herself: she only uses ingredients you'd find at a pizza restaurant — and she tries not to mix flavours that don't go together. Although she adds: 'My Kate Middleton must have more than 100 olives in her hair. 'And with all those anchovies, too, it would probably be very salty.'
