One very large slice to go, please.

Authorities in Florida are searching for a giant slice of pizza that walked out of a Lakeland Papa John's restaurant during a Saturday evening in early March, according to a statement from the Polk County Sheriff's Office.

Police say that a male suspect, approximately 18 years old, put on the six-foot promotional costume and exited the pizzeria as four accomplices, now considered persons of interest, watched the escape, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Surveillance footage shows the suspects enter the store around 7 p.m. and meander near the door before grabbing the promotional outfit and leaving the scene.

The six-foot slice of pizza is described as having pepperoni, mushrooms, green peppers and black olives, according to ABC Actions News.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is encouraged to contact Detective Kim Douglas at 863-577-1600 or 863-298-6200.
