A Berlin restaurant has created the world’s cheesiest pizza, topped with an impressive 111 different types of cheese.
The mouth-watering dish was baked by an American pizza chef at Berlin-based Italian restaurant Vadoli Pizzeria in Germany last week.
Loaded with a whopping 288.6g of cheese, the creation has taken home the Guinness World Record for the “greatest variety of cheese on a pizza.”
You’d be forgiven for assuming that the pizza would have to be bigger than normal to accommodate all that extra dairy, but it was in fact just a couple of centimetres larger than a regular-sized pie.
Instead, the chef managed to include all 111 cheeses by painstakingly weighing each one so that just 2.6g of each variety made it onto the pizza.
According to the Guinness World Records, the finished pizza included mozzarella, Emmental, Leicestershire red, Comté and Raclette de Chèvre cheese among many others.
After being judged by an official adjudicator and cheese expert, the pizza – and nine others – were sliced up and served to guests at the event.
One lucky recipient who tasted the dish described it as “crunchy and cheesy” and said that each piece tasted completely different.
“Pizza.de has been delivering pizza to Germany’s fast food lovers for over 10 years. We know what kind of variety is appreciated,” said Nikolay Abrosov, general manager at pizza.de, the delivery service that organised the event.
"With this record we’re pushing the boundaries and bringing variety to the next level, showing what a pizza can really do."
