“Pizza” contains 1,000 types of cheese. A French food lover seeks a world title

A French foodie will set a new world record on Saturday by trying to make a pizza with 1,000 cheeses.

French chef Julien Siri wants to break the record for the number of cheeses in one pizza.

Ceri is supported by a number of experienced cheese makers, the national dairy group Snell, as well as the Auvergne-Rhone Alps region.

The organizers did not reveal the expected size of the pizza, but said that the resulting pieces will be distributed to visitors.

In his attempt to set a world record, the Frenchman will rely entirely on local cheeses.

It is not clear how many types of cheese there are in France, but the Snell group says it is about 1,200.

The previous record was set by a pizza maker in Lyon in 2020 who used 257 types of cheese in pizza, BFMTV reported.

Recording the previous record did not require a pizza the size of a ping-pong table, as the previous record holder spread only one kilogram of cheese on a pizza 30 cm in diameter.
