Recently, across two kilometers of the waterfront in Naples stretched a long pizza that now holds the Guinness World Records title for the world's largest pizza.
The pizza was made from 2,000 kilograms of flour and mozzarella, 1,600 kilograms of tomatoes, 200 litres of oil and 1,500 litres of water. When it came time to bake the pizza, it required 11 hours to cook with custom portable wood fire ovens and plenty of help from Italian chefs to dress it with sauce and basil. This new pizza breaks the previous world record, which was made at the World Expo in Milan last year to span 1.5 kilometers.
Just as there are competitive eaters of foodie culture, there seems to be just as many ambitious chefs who are also out to test limits.
