Italian pizza chefs in Naples smashed the title for the 'World's Longest Pizza' this week, managing to eek out an extra 258.43 metres on the previous record set in Milan just under a year ago.
Snaking out along the sparkling sea front at an impressive 1,853.88 metres (6082.2 feet / 1.15 miles) long, the Guinness World Records has confirmed that the pizza is thelongest ever made in the world.
100 chefs, 11 hours and five portable wood ovens were what it took to take the monumental title. Not to mention the ingredients used, which are all available on the doorstep; a whopping 2,000 kg of flour, 1,600 kg of tomatoes, 2,000 kg of fior di latte cheese and 200 litres of olive oil.
Once the official measuring was complete, hungry visitors were free to take away a slice of the delicious Neapolitan with any remaining pizza being given to charities.
In a city that that managed to obtain a protected trademark for the beloved 'Neapolitan pizza' it's no surprise they wanted a slice of the action when it came to taking on the world title.
