A 154 cheeses pizza: a new record for an Australian chef

A 154 cheeses pizza: a new record for an Australian chef
Une pizza avec 154 fromages

CHEESE LOVERS ALERT : Johnny Di Francesco, Chef of the 400 Gradi restaurant in Melbourne has just broken the pizza record with the largest number of different cheeses, and so entered his name in the famous Guiness Book of Records on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 !
He has indeed developed a recipe with 154 varieties of cheese ! The record of the previous defending champion was 111.

From gorgonzola to cheddar but also pecorino or taleggio, this pizza is "cheezy" to perfection and Chef Di Francesco calls it "Cheezy pizza", of course. Since he has been offering it on his menu, the record pizza has been a great success. More than 797 "Cheesy Pizza" were sold in less than five days, whereas the restaurant owner had just offered it on his restaurant menu, or about 160 per day !

But you are seen coming and you are mistaken, despite the impressive amount of cheese on this pizza, it is not as indigestible as it seems. Simply because the Australian Chef used only one gram of each cheese to achieve this culinary feat. So you can take part in it, without feeling guilty !

Johnny Di Francesco was not on his first try. Indeed, he was already offering a pizza containing 99 cheeses on his menu. This is what motivated him to carry out this "culinary challenge", as he explains in various interviews.

But his real source of inspiration was none other than the 2014 film "The Mutant Ninja Turtles" (see: Ninja Turtles), in which the character of Michelangelo, an avid pizza fan, talks about a 99-cheese pizza as a "culinary impossibility". That's when the challenge began for Chief Johnny Di Francesco.


Otherwise, if you don't want to fly 26 hours to taste this pizza, at Café Oz Denfert & Rooftop we offer a four-cheese pizza also delicious !
