NEW YORK (CBS/AP) Police in New York City say thieves held up the owners of a pizzeria at gunpoint and then fled with a bag full of dough - the kind that crusts are made of.

According to papers unsealed Monday in Brooklyn Federal Court, on June 30, 2008, Salvatore LaRosa and an unidentified accomplice followed the owners of a Staten Island pizzeria home.

After donning masks, the documents say, they pointed guns and demanded the men turn over a bag they believed held the day's proceeds.

Instead, the bag was full of pizza dough.

But even though there was no cash in the bag, the robbery victim resisted, and was twice shot in the leg, according to a Drug Enforcement Agency complaint.

Just last Friday, Larosa surrendered to federal authorities to be charged, reports the New York Daily News.

Then on Monday, LaRosa was released on $1 million bail.

Now that's a lot of dough.
