The Pizza Underground, Macaulay Culkin's pizza themed Velvet Underground covers band, have had a pizza named in their honour.

Stateside pizza chain Two Boots has named a slice after the band. The special pizza will be available in all branches of Two Boots for a week from today (April 8). Watch an advert for the pizza - posted to YouTube by 'Anchovy Warhol' - below. According to Two Boots, the pizza boasts kale pesto - because of founding member of the Velvet Underground John Cale - vidalia onions and garlic - because they grow underground - plus plum tomatoes and ricotta. The pizza has been made to celebrate the release of the band's EP on the Daytrotter website.

Meanwhile, The Pizza Underground have announced details of their first UK headline date. The band, who perform a medley of songs which include 'I'm Waiting For Delivery Man', 'Cheese Days', 'I'm Beginning To Eat The Slice', 'All The Pizza Parties' and 'Take A Bite of the Wild Slice', will perform at Concrete in London on May 21.

Concrete is situated in east London, underneath pizza restaurant Pizza East. Gig goers will get free pizza upon their arrival at the gig while supplies last. Scroll down for ticket details.

In November 2013, The Pizza Underground played the anti-folk open mic night at the Sidewalk Cafe in New York using a pizza box as a percussion instrument. The band were threatened with violence by rival pizza-based band Personal & The Pizzas who formed in 2010 and released the 'Raw Pie' cassette on Burger Records in the same year. Speaking in 2013, frontman Personal claimed he was set to "kill" The Pizza Underground before suing them for stealing his niche.
