Published 27 June 2017

What’s better than pizza? A one mile long one! Or 1,930.39 metres (6,333 ft 3.60 in), to be exact.

This monster margherita was created by 100 pizza chefs from Pizzaovens.com in California, USA and smashed the record for the Longest pizza.

The recipe for success included a whopping 3,632 kg of dough, 1,634 kg of cheese and 2,542 kg of sauce!

The pizza oven company took on this challenge because they wanted to show how good their equipment is.

They used three industrial ovens for this record attempt with the pizza entering them on a huge conveyor belt.

Volunteers rolled the ovens down the pizza every 17 minutes to make sure each section of the margherita was cooked to perfection.

Christina Flounders Conlon was the official Guinness World Records judge for the mouth-watering event.

“This was an incredible, year-long effort by a huge team of people,” she said.

Following the event, all leftover pizza slices were donated to local food banks and homeless shelters.
