Love Quattro Formaggi Pizza? This chef just made the 834 Formaggi version!

An astonishing attempt to make a pizza with 1000 different varieties of cheese ended just shy of that, but still broke the record three times over!

We may consider ourselves to be cheese lovers, but as it turns out, we are mere mortal amateurs, compared to the Parisian chef Julien Serri. His passion for cheese from early on has set him on a course to break the record for the most different varieties of cheese on a 30 cm diameter pizza.

The previous record holder - a chef from Lyon managed to fit the already respectable 257 different varieties. But chef Serri was aiming much higher - he wanted to hit the magical number of a thousand varieties. 1000! Now you would ask if there are so many varieties of cheese in the whole world and the answer is YES! France alone produces just over 1200 different kinds of cheese!

Chef Serri, along with two of his closest friends - the actor and content creator Morgan VS and the best worker in France Franรงois Robin tried, but ended just shy of 1000. Still, 834 different varieties of cheese on a small pizza is nothing short of impressive, beating the previous record by 577 varieties more on the same size dough. That's a new world record and will be listed by Guinness. You can see how the pizza has been made, eaten and awarded by the Guinness representative in the video below (in French):
