This Seven-Course Pizza Features Appetizers, Mains and Dessert

It's often been said that pizza is a whole meal unto itself. After all, if you down three or four slices as you marathon episodes of Law and Order on Netflix, you aren't exactly looking for soup or ice cream afterwards. One restaurant, however, has taken the notion of "pizza as meal" and taken it to the extreme.

A restaurant in Lebanon called Al Sanior has a menu item called The Patriot. This gigantic pizza is a full seven-course meal all by itself. That doesn't mean you'd just eat enough to comprise a seven-course meal, rather it's a pizza cut into seven sections, each one a different course. There's a series of appetizer courses, featuring spiced breads and fermented yogurt. There's several entree courses, including pepperoni and cheese; ground beef; and sheep milk cheese and olive oil. Finally, there's a dessert course that includes a chocolate and mozzarella creation that sounds decadently strange.

All told, The Patriot can feed up to 20 people. How much does all of this pizza splendor cost? Around 15,000 Lebanese pounds, or 10 bucks.
