The sensation of biting into a hot, freshly made pizza with a crispy crust, toppings of meat or vegetables, and plenty of cheese is unmatched, let us just accept it. With admirers all around the world, it is unquestionably one of the most popular Italian meals. You can always get a ‘pizza’ to pacify your appetite, no matter where you are in the world.
A recent attempt to create the largest pizza in history was made by the American multinational restaurant company “Pizza Hut” as a further demonstration of its devotion for this Italian delicacy.
This world-record pizza, according to a report from Reuters, will have 68,000 pieces when it is finished and will be 1,310 square meters in size. In order to assemble the pizza, the base is covered with rectangular slices of pizza dough. Prior to adding cheese and pepperoni, pizza sauce is first spread over the dough. It will be prepared using a cooking apparatus that hovers over the pizza pieces because no oven can fit such a massive pizza.

The pizza is currently being assembled at the Los Angeles Conference Centre in the US. Pizza Hut President David Graves told Reuters that after the record is confirmed, the pizza slices would be distributed to nearby food banks, ensuring that no food will be wasted in this quest to break the record.
In addition, Graves said, “When it comes to firsts, Pizza Hut has a history. We were the first company to deliver pizza and to accept online orders. We always take on challenging, thrilling projects. It therefore seemed appropriate to set a new record for the largest pizza in the world to honor the return of our favorite dish. We did it for that reason, ultimately.”
Let’s wish Pizza Hut to make the record and honor such a great dish. By the way, would you choose to try this “record-breaking” pizza if given the opportunity?
