Man's flight to Italy and pizza cost him less than a Domino's

A man has flown to Italy and bought a pizza for less than it would have cost him to order a Domino's pizza.

TikTokker Callum Ryan, @thatonecal, shared a video documenting his challenge to fly to Milan and buy a pizza for less than a Domino's medium pizza. A medium pizza from the chain is usually £19.99, meaning his budget for the trip was under £20.

With a miraculously cheap plane ticket and a reasonable priced Italian restaurant, Callum was able to achieve his goal.

In the video, Callum said: "I literally got a flight last minute for £8, I was absolutely buzzing. The next day I hopped on my flight and landed in Milan.

"I actually used TikTok to help me find the best pizza place around, and headed straight there. On arrival I got a free glass of prosecco and this little pesto pizza thing, which was quite nice.

"I ordered a margarita pizza and a drink, but of course the drink doesn't count because that's an optional extra. When the pizza arrived, it looked beautiful.

"But after finishing the pizza, it was time to pay the bill. The pizza on its own was €8.50 and the table service was €2.50, so €11, which when converted comes out as £9.72.

"Which means, we did it! We flew all the way to Italy and bought a pizza for less than a Domino's."

Callum's grand total was £17.72 spent on his flight and the pizza, a full £2.27 cheaper than a medium Domino's pizza. People in comments were shocked that he was successful.

One person said: "This just shows how ridiculous are prices in the UK!", and other international users agreed, with another person commenting: "£19.99 for a medium Domino's pizza? A standard domino's pizza is 5 bucks in Australia."

Others picked up on the expenses Callum left out, including his travel to and from the airport, as well as his return flight.
