Cheese-lovers living in Japan may recall Domino's Pizza Japan's outrageously cheese-loaded New Yorker 1kg Ultra Cheese pizza. Domino's takes its cheese very seriously, even hiring a CCO (Chief Cheese Officer) and paying them a handsome salary of 1 million yen a day (albeit for only a day).
Now, the cheese-obsessed folks at Domino's Japan have come up with yet another tantalizing treat for the pizza-loving turophiles among us. You may have heard of a Quattro Formaggio pizza with four kinds of cheese, but have you ever heard of a single pizza with 10 kinds of cheese? Too much cheese for one pizza, you say? Domino's begs to differ.
The World 10 Cheese Quattro
Since Japanese residents have been forced to cancel their plans to travel abroad this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, Domino's Pizza Japan came up with the next best thing, at least as far as what a pizza can do: A gastronomic tour of the world paved in cheese. And they have dubbed their globetrotting pie: "The World 10 Cheese Quattro."
If you're wondering how they divvied up 10 types of cheese between four types of pizza—the standard formula for Domino's Quattro pizzas, it's actually one seven-cheese pizza and three pizzas featuring one type of cheese each.
Before we take things any further, let's introduce the 10 types of cheese featured in The World 10 Cheese Quattro.
The The World 10 Cheese Quattro combines:
- The "Premium Seven-Cheese Pizza" featuring Danish Blue, Italian Boconccino, Hokkaido Camembert, New Zealand Parmesan, Australian Gouda, Australian Cheddar, and American Mozzarella cheese (with a pack of maple syrup for drizzling)
- The "Dutch Royal Warrant Beemster" pizza with pancetta, basil and cherry tomatoes
- The "French Mimolette and Shrimp" pizza with shrimp and asparagus
- The "British Cheddar and Ham" pizza with ham and mushrooms.
Whether you order the Quattro containing all four pizzas or one of the four varieties as a separate pizza, the prices are:
- Medium: 2,800 yen
- Regular: 3,300 yen
- Large: 3,900 yen
For extra fun, Domino's Japan has some AR content on your smartphone through which you'll be able to display information on the featured cheeses as well as suggested wine pairings for each variety.

The "World 10 Cheese Quattro", "Premium Seven-Cheese," "Dutch Royal Warrant Beemster," "French Mimolette and Shrimp," and the "British Cheddar and Ham" pizzas are available until Oct 3 for takeout and delivery at participating Domino's Pizza Japan locations.
