Karl Stefanovic starred in a promotional photograph for the pizza joint run by the fiance of food blogger Sofia Levin.

Ms Levin, 27, has spent time with Stefanovic, 42, in the days since he announced his marriage split.

Just weeks ago the Today Show host was seen happily gulping down a slice of pizza at her fiance Matt John's inner Sydney restaurant. 

The pizza parlour hailed him as 'King Karl' on Instagram and described Stefanovic's encounter with the Italian meal as 'love at first slice'.

Ms Levin has denied any romance with Stefanovic, saying they are just friends and pointing out she is in the middle of planning her own wedding. 

'It's not true at all, we're just mates,' she told Woman's Day. 

She struck up a friendship with the TV personality when they met on the set of a photo shoot for celebrity chef Luke Mangan in September.

Her partner, the restaurateur and branding expert Mr John, told the publication: 'We're all friends, I've hung out with Karl and Sofia together.'

The young couple became engaged midway through this year after he proposed to her atop a Mexican pyramid. 

Meantime, their new pal Stefanovic is taking a Christmas break from the set of the breakfast TV program where he has worked since 2005.

The media personality hung out with Melbourne resident Ms Levin while she was in Sydney last week, according to New Idea. 

In pictures published by the magazine, the charismatic TV shot host was seen picking up the brunette in his flash Mercedes Benz.

The following day the pair were seen at Sydney's QT Bondi Hotel with Karl's journalist brother Peter Stefanovic and his fiancee Sylvia Jeffreys.

They enjoyed a few drinks on the balcony of the hotel.  

Ms Levin is the daughter of Greg, an aerial photographer, and Abby, a talented swing dancer and has two brothers, Lucas and Max.  

Mr John is a boxing fan, branding expert and pescatarian - someone who eats fish but not meat.
