Pizza, the food of the gods. How do you celebrate a food so amazing? You build the world’s longest pizza of course. That’s what recently happened in Naples, Italy.
It took 250 pizza chefs working in shifts of 100 to cook this giant pizza that measures 6,082 feet, or 1.15 miles long. It took five motorized wood-burning stoves to cook the whole thing. They went down the length foot by foot. It took literally tons of ingredients to make this thing, like 2.2 tons of flour, 2.2 tons of mozzarella cheese, 3,527 pounds of tomato sauce, 200 liters of olive oil, and 66 pounds of fresh basil. Mamma mia!
Visitors were able to grab a slice after the record was confirmed.
