A pizza measuring a whopping 1,100 metres in length has made it into the Guinness Book of Records after smashing the previous record holder’s attempt which measured just 405 metres.
The longest pizza in the world was created by chefs from Pizzeria Magillo in Krakow, Poland. The previous title holders hailed from Italy, the home of pizza, and have held the record for the past 3 years after serving up a 405m long pizza in Tuscany.
However the Polish chefs more than doubled that previous record with their colossal pizza. A huge quantity of ingredients were shipped in for the creation of the massive pizza, including three and a half tonnes flour, 1,500 litres of tomato sauce, and 1,600 kilos of mozzarella cheese.
The rules of the competition state that the pizza must be in one continuous piece, and not a collection of smaller pizzas placed together to create one long pizza.
As soon as the official judges from the Guinness Book of Records had finished measuring the pizza and were satisfied it met all requirements to earn the coveted title, the big eat was sliced up and served to onlookers at the event. All money raised from the record breaking attempt has been donated to charity.
