This is "Crusty" an extinct Oviraptor.

The Oviraptor was an omnivorous dinosaur that lived during the Cretaceous Period about 75 million years ago. Oviraptor was about 6 to 8 feet long and probably weighed 60-70 pounds. Physically, Oviraptor seemed to be quite bird like with a crest on its head and thin forearms. It also had a strong jaw that could crack through shells like those of mollusks.

Remarkably, Crusty bears a close resemblance to the crust of a pizza I had last night.
