CBR unboxes the ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ 99-cheese pizza

In this past summer’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, the latest live-action iteration of Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird enduring multimedia franchise, Splinter tests the foursome’s mettle by attempting to break their concentration with a 99-cheese pizza dubbed “Novantanove Formaggio” — which for those counting at home is a full 95 cheeses more than a comparatively pedestrian four-cheese pie.

With the film out on DVD and Blu-ray today, Paramount actually attempted to create the mythical concoction — first crafted by an Australian chef — and sent it out to media outlets, including Comic Book Resources. A publicity stunt? Yes, but when a publicity stunt involves dozens of melty cheeses sent to our door, you can bet that we’re going to mark the occasion accordingly.

Here’s a look at the Novantanove Formaggio in the wild (along with accompanying Raphael and Donatello masks) — which, as you may have expected, looks like a cheese pizza. (Lactose intolerant readers may want to turn away now.)

But still pictures weren’t enough — CBR also created a video so you can share the magical moment with us.

You’re wondering: How’d it taste? Pretty good! We all liked it. It sounds like it might be a mess, but it wasn’t as overpowering as you may guess — just tasted like a solid, strongly flavored, cheese pizza.

For context, here’s the 99-cheese pizza scene from the film:
