Called the Novantanove Formaggio (99-cheese pizza), this pie from 400 Gradi in Melbourne is created using a ‘super cheese’.

By Gerry Mak in Cool Travel on Wednesday 23 June 2010

We ran ourselves ragged driving from Baltimore to Portland in 48 hours flat, and by the time we were almost done with our West Coast tour in LA, we were exhausted, stinky, and broke.
