On January 18, Pizza Hut employees and YouTube phenomenon Airrack dispersed throughout the Los Angeles Convention Center to assemble the world record pie.
Following the creation of a pie on January 18 in Los Angeles that covered approximately 14,000 square feet, Pizza Hut is now the proud owner of the Guinness Book of World Records title for “World’s Largest Pizza.”
The dish was built, topped, and baked in parts inside the Los Angeles Convention Center using 13,653 pounds of dough, 4,948 pounds of sweet marinara sauce, more than 8,800 pounds of mozzarella, and about 630,496 pounds of pepperoni.
After baking it according to the instructions in “The Big New Yorker,” it was given to a number of nearby charities. According to Pizza Hut President David Graves, 68,000 pizzas were made.
The enormous pizza was being built by a group of workers who were dispersed over the convention centre’s floor.
The pie-making was assisted by YouTube star Airrack, actual name Eric Decker, whose subscriber count surpassed 10 million. His channel promotes the idea that anything is achievable if you set your mind to it and work hard to achieve it.
The restaurant company recently announced that “The Big New Yorker” pizza would be coming back after a 24-year absence due to popular demand.
An extra-large pizza with six extra-large, foldable pieces from the 1990s with a crunchy crust and strong flavours like sweet marinara sauce and Parmesan oregano seasoning, just like they offer at an actual New York pizzeria.
Pizza Hut, which established its first shop in 1958, has already had a record listed in the Guinness Book of World Records.
They achieved the Guinness World Records title for highest pizza delivery on land in 2016 when they sent a pizza to the summit of Tanzania’s Mount Kilimanjaro, which rises 19,341 feet above sea level.
The previous “World’s Largest Pizza” record holder, which stood at 13,580 square feet, was made by a crew of five in Rome in 2012. Its name was Ottavia, and it was gluten-free.
