Pizza Hut tries to break the record for the largest pizza in the world in California. The company made a large 14,000-square-foot pepperoni pizza that will make 68,000 slices.
Pizza Hut’s giant pizza was held at the Los Angeles Convention Center. More than 13,000 pounds of dough and nearly 5,000 pounds of sauce were used to make the pizza.
For the elaboration of the great pizza, rectangular slices of dough were placed, with sauce, cheese and pepperoni on top. ABC reports that the pizza was so large that it had to be baked in pieces over the course of a few hours.
Once the pizza is completed and the corresponding records taken. Pizza Hut would deliver the nearly 70,000 slices of pizza to local Los Angeles food banks and charities.
One of the records for large pizzas recorded in the last 5 years was achieved in 2017 in Fontana, California. According to Guinness World Records, the longest pizza measured 1,930 meters (6,333 feet), using approximately 17,700 pounds of dough, 5,000 pounds of tomato sauce, and 3,900 pounds of mozzarella cheese.
The pizza was achieved by Pizzaovens.com, Venice Bakery, Orlando Foods, At-Pac, Sysco, TFX Non Stick, Capstone Scaffold Services, Scaffold Works, SoCal Gas, Tony Gemignani, Giulio Adriani, John Arena and Italforni.
According to David Graves, president of Pizza Hut, the company decided to make the world’s largest pizza to celebrate the return of its famous The Big New Yorker pizza to its menu.
The Big New Yorker is Pizza Hut’s largest pizza, a 16-inch New York-style pizza making a return to its menu after its initial launch 24 years ago.
The iconic pizza will be available at participating Pizza Hut restaurants across the United States for a limited time beginning February 1, 2023. The chain notes that Hut Rewards members will be able to pre-try the Big New Yorker beginning January 31.
