Over 60 of Italy’s best pizza chefs joined forces to create the world’s longest pizza. This record-breaking pizza, which was unveiled at Milan’s Expo 2015 World Fair, took almost 18 hours to prepare and measured an impressive 1.59545km according to Expo organisers. To celebrate the margarita pizza’s 126th birthday, the pizza was topped with two tonnes of tomato sauce and almost two tonnes of mozzarella cheese. Cirio helped to sponsor the event with a donation of tomato sauce to top the mile long pizza.
UK Brand Manager of Cirio, Clive Davis, said “as an authentically Italian brand, we are delighted to be involved in this new world record achieved by great Italian Chefs and with inspiration from great Italian cuisine.”
This Italian masterpiece beat the previous world record set in Tomelloso, Spain in 2011, which measured 1.141km.
