This could be the world’s biggest ever pizza with 68,000 slices
A world record attempt is underway to create the world’s largest ever pizza – complete with 68,000 slices.
An army of chefs come together at the Los Angels Convention centre to create the delicious display.
To begin with, large rectangular slices of dough were stretched over the hall to provide the base for the pizza.
Tomato sauce was then been ‘painted’ over the surface before cheese and pepperoni were scattered on top.
Once complete, the pizza will cover 14,101 square feet of space and dish out 68,000 slices once it is completed.
Pizza Hut, behind the world record attempt, confirmed that no food will be wasted, with local foodbanks to benefit.
David Graves, president of the company, was filmed showcasing the attempt underway.
He said: ‘Yeah. So, it’s a big team, as you can see.
‘I mean, look at the size of it. It’s a giant pizza. It’s about 14,000 square feet. So, if you think about that, it’s going to be like 68,000 slices of pizza when we’re all done.
‘And the great thing is none of it’s going to waste.
‘We can actually donate it to some local food banks here in the Los Angeles community. So, we’re really excited about that.’
The Pizza Hut world record attempt follows a similar effort in the home of pizza – Italy.
More than 400 chefs met in Naples in 2016 to create a 1,853 metre long pizza, breaking the record for the world’s longest pizza.
To make their magical creation, chefs used 2,000kg of flour, 1600kg of tomatoes, 2,000kg of mozzarella, and 200 litres of water.
