This Slice Of Pizza Heaven Contains Over 100 Varieties Of Glorious Cheese

If Cheetos are dangerously cheesy, this is downright diabolical. 
A pizza shop in Oregon put its clientele’s lactose tolerance to the test this week, offering a pie with over 100 varieties of cheese. Scottie’s Pizza Parlor dreamed up the gooey masterpiece in honor of the “Ninja Turtles” and the 2017 Portland Pizza Week. The specialty pie with a stuffed crust was available for one day only at two dollars per slice. Owner Scott Rivera actually used so much cheese for the pizza, he may have lost count. When reached by HuffPost, he conceded that there actually may have been as many as 103 cheese varieties on the advertised 101-cheese pizza. Rivera was still in the process of finalizing that count. Regardless, to illustrate just how much cheese that is, here a screen grab from Scottie’s website listing the many varieties of cheese on the pizza.

Cheese, cheese, cheese, cheese.

The cheese list included a 55-cheese shredded blend, house ricotta, 36 additional soft cheese varieties, nine grated cheeses, and aged part-skim mozzarella in a stuffed crust. A version minus the stuffed crust was available for the rest of pizza week.

“The Centouno Formaggio pizza is inspired by the Novantanove Formaggio (99-cheese) pizza which was depicted in 2014’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film,” Scottie’s explained on their website. “The year of the film’s release, world champion pizzamaker Johnny di Francesco of 400 Gradi Pizzeria in Melbourne, Australia created a 99-cheese pizza, simply to provie that it was not a ‘culinary impossibility,’ as exclaimed by Donatello in the film.”

Rivera created the extreme pie as an attempt to break the world record for most cheese varieties on a pizza. Initial plans to invite a representative from the Guinness Book of World Records melted away due to fees and scheduling conflicts, The Oregonian reported.

“That’s fine with me,” he told the newspaper. “We know we broke the record.”

Even so, Rivera is still in contact with Guinness and hopes to make it official. He says that the record for most cheese varieties on a pizza would be a new one for the Guinness books.
