Man Flies All the Way to Italy to Buy Pizza For Less Price Than Ordering Pizza Back Home
Getting a delicious slice of pizza from the homeland of pizzas, Italy, could be quite difficult, especially if you're on a budget. Ordering pizza from your nearest fast-food outlet is often the best you can get. Actually, maybe not! One man decided to go to Italy and buy a pizza for less than the cost of ordering one from Domino's, and he was successful in getting cheap yet good-quality authentic pizza. And yes, it includes the flight fare! Does this make you rethink your pizza-buying options?
Callum Ryan's TikTok account explained that his standard was a "medium-sized Domino's pizza," which would have cost him £19.99 ($24.58). Finally, he was able to fly to Italy and buy a pizza for less, and he even got a free glass of prosecco thrown in for good measure. In terms of how he did it, Callum revealed that he found an incredibly cheap last-minute flight from London to Milan for just £8 ($9.84), which probably accounted for the cheapest flight ever taken as well. You wouldn't want to base your vacation plans on such a low-cost flight, but on the rarest of rare occasions, an aircraft with extra seats will have last-minute deals that will allow you to travel around the world for pennies. Talk about luck!
Getting the low-cost flight left him with enough money to go find a pizza place once he landed in Italy. Callum was treated to a free glass of prosecco and a 'pesto pizza thing' as a complimentary starter after finding a lovely spot with the help of his TikTok followers. The video has gained 204 thousand likes and has been shared over 3,308 times.
After ordering a Margherita from the restaurant in Milan, the TikTok user totaled the cost of the food and service, which came to €11 ($12.13). When he added the flight ticket price of £8 ($9.82), he found that he had spent a total of £17.72 ($21.96) on his trip to Italy and for getting a pizza there. The cost of a medium pizza from Domino's would have been £19.99 ($24.77). So, it appears to be a pretty good deal.
Even though this blew plenty of minds, many people commented on Callum's video that they could get a pizza from Domino's for much less. One Tiktok user commented that a medium pizza from Domino's costs £10 ($12.39), which is still more than what Callum paid for his pizza in Italy. Others pointed out that Callum needed to factor in the cost of his return trip from Italy unless he intended to live there indefinitely.
