Get a pizza this...
In Naples in Italy this week, a group of 100 talented chefs worked together to create the Longest pizza ever - measuring a whopping 1,853.88 metres(6082.2 feet / 1.15 miles). That's the equivalent of over 6,000 12 inch pizzas!
The delicious creation was a Neapolitan pizza, made with 2,000 kg of flour, 1,600 kg of tomatoes, 2,000 kg of fiordilatte cheese and 200 litres of olive oil. All the ingredients came from the Campania region which is known as 'the home of pizza'.
It took the chefs 11 hours to make and cook the delicious Italian meal. To make sure the entire pizza was cooked properly, they used five specially-made wood fire ovens that moved along the Neapolitan on wheels.
The mouth-watering attempt took place at an event called 'L’Unione Fa La Pizza' which was organised by the Napoli Pizza Village.
Guinness World Records judge Lucia Sinigagliesi watched as the giant pizza was created and made sure that the chefs followed all the rules of the record.
Once Lucia announced that a new record was achieved, excited visitors were able to try a piece of the record-breaking pizza.
Any pizza that was left over was then taken to Camper Onlus Association, Italian Red Cross and to Chicchi di Grano Association to be donated to people in need.
Previously, the longest pizza measured 1,595.45 m (5,234 ft 4.8 in) and was created by La Pizza+1 of Sante Ludovico, NIPfood of Dovilio Nardi and Tomato World Week 2015 at Milan’s Expo 2015 world fair in Milan, Italy last year.
