French chef Benoît Bruel would not agree, judging by his world record-breaking pizza creation featuring 254 distinct cheeses.
Guinness World Records announced on Monday that the Lyon-based cook had achieved most varieties of cheese stuffed into one approximately 12-inch (30 centimeters) pizza. They based their ruling on a video produced by French food and travel YouTuber FlorianOnAir in February, which documents Bruel’s fantastic feat du fromage.
Bruel told Florian as well as Guinness officials that he was compelled to raise the bar after learning that Australia held the previous title for a pizza topped with a measly 154 cheeses. The pizzaiolo at Déliss’ Pizza, in Lyon, said that title should be held by France, a country distinct for its delectable dairy products.
In the video, Bruel can be see carefully sampling and weighing each cheesy morsel, all of which were sourced in France, to a few dozen grams each — a tasty task lasting about two hours. Overall, the cheese mound clocked in at around 800 grams, over one-and-a-half pounds.
While a full list of cheese varieties used to dress the substantial pie was not published, Bruel claims in the video that each package of cheese cost about $4, meaning they spent about $1,000 putting together the pizza — so it didn’t end up on Déliss’ menu for very long. However, a few lucky diners were able to enjoy the cholester-ific dish for just under 50 euros each, Bruel told Florian, until the shop could sell off their cheesy overhead.
