Benoit Bruel is the manager of Deliss pizza located in the 3rd district of Lyon and it has just entered the Guinness Book of Records!
The reason ? He made a pizza with a total of 254 cheeses ! A record that crushes that of the Australian restaurateur Johnny by Francesco, who had made him a pizza with 154 cheeses, a figure well below the Lyon chef.
“True or Fake” news?
This record is also referenced in the “Fake News” card game. Indeed, the performance had been announced by the press at 257 cheeses but in reality, Benoit composed his pizza well with 254 cheeses!
A crazy project
Pizza measures 30 centimeters wide and weighs 730 grams. An almost logical record when we know that France has more than 300 varieties of different cheeses on the territory. The pizzaiolo from Lyon intends to use this pizza to welcome as many customers as possible. The man was recently awarded on November 26, 2020, by integrating the Guinness Book des records . “This world record project, I had imagined it with my friend Brice, who disappeared in the helicopter crash in Argentina on March 9, 2015” says Benoit.The famous youtubeur FlorianOnAir, known to test fast food in all corners of France had the chance to taste and he was not disappointed: “Frankly it’s so good! It’s super good, the dough is delicious. It’s hard to detect the different cheeses, but you can tell that something is going on. It’s super good” did he declare. A record that further increases the popularity of Lyon for its cuisine.
Will he stop there?
Obviously, Benoit Bruel is already seeing further and would like to beat his own record. He met a cheese maker from the region and would like to make, this time and with her help, a pizza with 300 cheeses and this time all French!
