Would you eat a 150-cheese pizza?

MELBOURNE'S Mr Pizza Johnny Di Franceso is ready to melt pizza-lovers' hearts.

Not one to string along his fans, the 400 Gradi founder will serve up a cool creation featuring gorgonzola and grana Padano, goat cheddar and buffalo blue.

Tomorrow to celebrate National Cheese Pizza day, the renowned pizzaiolo will serve up those cheeses and a hundred more on a record-breaking 150-cheese pizza.

Having created a take on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 99-cheese pizza in 2014, since then pizza makers around the globe have turned up the cheese, with the current world record being a 111-cheese pizza.

Now Di Francesco is set to cream the competition with his 150-cheese creation.

When grilled on what it tastes like, Di Francesco said the pizza was a cheesy delight that would hit the spot for any cheese lover.

"Getting 150 cheeses was a challenge but we did it. If I could have found more I would've definitely worked out a way to add more," he said.

The 150-cheese pizza is available for $25 at 400 Gradi restaurants from Wed until Sun.
