A British teen was charged more than $320,000 for a pizza from Domino’s.

Nathaniel Bolwell, 19, was supposed to be charged £17.99, but was instead charged £179,932.32, or $328, 432.17.

That money was overdrawn from his account, he told the U.K.’s Mirror newspaper.

"I couldn’t believe my eyes. How did it allow Domino’s to take all that money?” the teen told the paper.

"People are joking that instead of a cheese and tomato pizza it must have been made of gold leaf and diamonds,” Bolwell’s father, Karl, said.

A spokeswoman for Domino’s told the Mirror: "This was immediately flagged by our merchant provider due to the amount and a reversal of funds was put in place.

"Unfortunately the payment was authorised by the customer’s bank.

"We understand that this has now been resolved and we apologise for any inconvenience caused."

Domino’s gave Bolwell his money back and compensated him £100 .
