    A savvy entrepreneur in Guatemala is taking advantage of an active volcano to launch a new food craze.

    David Garcia has been cooking pizza over lava oozing out of Pacaya volcano, which began erupting again in February, for the past several weeks.

    He wears protective clothing and bakes the pizza on special metal sheets that can withstand temperatures of up to 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Tourists have been flocking to the mountain to have a slice and post pics on social media.

    Pacaya is one of three active volcanoes in the Central American nation, and its eruptions can be seen from the capital, Guatemala City, some 15 miles away.

    it in a hot cave that was approximately 800 degrees [1400 degrees Fahrenheit] and it came out
    in 14 minutes'
