Detroit Lions' Nate Burleson

My Truck's a Pizza Junk!

Detroit Lions' wide receiver Nate Burleson didn't just break his arm when he crashed -- while reaching for a pizza box -- based on this pic TMZ obtained ... his sweet SUV is dunzo.

Burleson's 2009 GMC Yukon -- or what's left of it -- was hauled by flatbed to a GMC dealership Wednesday in suburban Detroit.

As we told you ... Burleson told police he swerved into a median  when he tried to save a pizza from sliding off the front seat. 

The SUV is clearly out for the season, but the good news for Detroit is ... its owner is expected to be back on the field before the end of the season.

Next time? Delivery, Nate ... delivery.

Geez, TMZ, if he had a pizza delivered you would have made up something about him being too high and mighty to get his own pizza. In the world of TMZ, NO ONE can do anything right!

Delivery? Nate was driving back home from a personal appearance tied to the week's MNF game. He took a fresh pizza with him.

I learned to put a seat belt on my pizza so that does not happen.
