Company breaks world record with pizza of 68,000 pieces and 1,300 square meters

If you think you’ve devoured — or at least tried — a large pizza recently, you might want to rethink what you consider “large.”

When Pizza Hut decided to bring back its “big New York” pizza – a cheese and pepperoni “pie” with folding slices designed to be eaten on the go, in true Manhattan style – the company wanted to find a way to celebrate the news.

So here’s the idea: take New York to Los Angeles and collaborate with YouTube star Airrack (aka Eric Decker).

So, they went to the Los Angeles Convention Center, whose space would support a pizza of 1.3 thousand square meters aiming to break the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest pizza.

They started work on the giant pizza on Wednesday, and on Friday Pizza Hut put the official verdict: a Guinness representative said it was indeed the world’s biggest pizza.

Guinness confirmed the record to CNN in an email late Friday afternoon.

How the pizza was made

To complete the massive task, the workers layered the dough first, tomato sauce was added, and then the toppings. Once everything was ready, it was roasted in pieces, according to the Pizza Hut statement.

in total, 6,193 tons of dough , 2,244 tons of sauce more of 3,991 tons of cheese and 630,496 pieces of pepperoni were used to make the record food.

Pizza Hut CEO David Graves told Reuters the pizza would not go to waste – once it was made and documented for Guinness, its 68 thousand slices would be donated to local food banks.

The previous Guinness record for the largest pizza in the world was set in 2012 by a group of Italian chefs. Their pizza was 1,261 square feet, gluten-free and named after Ottavia.
