How many cheeses is the right number for a pizza? Four cheeses? Five cheeses? How about 154 whopping cheeses? That's how many cheeses 400 Gradi (recently named the best pizza in Oceania for the second year in a row) is putting on its pizza from Thursday, September 5 to Sunday, September 8.

Owner and chef Johnny Di Francesco has previously put together a 99-cheese pizza as well as a 150-cheese pizza in 2018. This year however 400 Gradi is going for the big cheese (yeah, we went there): 154 different kinds on one pizza.
