NORWALK, Conn. -- Talk about cheesy — in more ways than one.
One hundred and nine -- that's right -- 109 -- different kinds of cheeses were used to help DJ Ken Tuccio of 95.9 THE FOX First Thing Fairfield County make history.
His dream to create the most cheese on a pizza was made into reality thanks to Letizia's Pizza in Norwalk and 109 Cheese and Wine in Ridgefield.
The idea came into being after Tuccio, who works out of Westport, heard of a restaurant in Portland OR that created a pizza with 101 kinds of cheese. And so, after doing some research, he reached out to the Letizia's, which contributed seven kinds of cheese and 109 Cheese and Wine brought in 102.
The record-breaking pie was unveiled on First Thing Fairfield County with Ken Tuccio at 8:15 a.m. Thursday.
And now, folks can taste it, if they head over to Letizia's Pizza today. Proceeds from every slice will go to Food Rescue U.S.
Letizia’s is at 666 Main Ave.
