They say that life doesn’t create true heroes anymore. They say that we live in a morally compromised world bereft of such black and white concepts. They say a lot of things. They also have not laid eyes on this pizza that features ninety-nine different types of cheese, so what do they know?
Johnny Di Francesco, an Australian chef who has already won the coveted World’s Best Pizza award, just unveiled his newest creation. It’s a pizza made with ninety-nine cheeses and a Jay Z joke isn’t one. The pie starts with the paltry-seeming ninety-four cheeses as its base, then once it is baked the chef tops it with five more, including fior di latte, buffalo mozzarella, goat cheese and ricotta.
Even cooler? Melbourne residents who popped in at his pizza place, Gradi, last weekend were able to pick up the short-lived pie for a whopping nineteen bucks! That’s like twenty cents a cheese.
