(Scroll down for video) A group of chefs in Italy, recorded a new world record by baking a pizza pie that measured more than a mile long.
The pizza was displayed along the seafront in Naples.
One hundred chefs collaborated to create the pizza that measured 1,853.88 meters or 6082.2 feet. The Guinness World Record has confirmed that this was the longest pizza ever baked.
The pizza included 4,400 pounds of flour, 3,527 pounds of tomatoes, and 4,010 pounds of cheese. The chefs also used more than 50 gallons of oil.
During the event called “L’Unione Fa La Pizza,” the chefs spent 11 hours preparing the mile-long pizza. Once the world record was confirmed, spectators were allowed to eat the pizza.
Whatever was left over, has been given to the Red Cross and was distributed to the poor. Previously, the longest pizza measured 5,234 feet and 4.8 inches, which was created by La Pizza+1 in Milan.
