Visit Naples if you want to see the world’s longest margherita pizza. With 200 chefs on roll, the doughy delicacy’s home city made 1853.88 metre-long pizza, which smashed down last year’s record of 1595.45 metre-long snack made in World Expo in Milan, reports New.com.au.
This news was confirmed by Italy’s food and agriculture board.
The chefs from all over the world spent most of its time on May 18, assembling the pizza from raw ingredients of 2000kg of flour, 1600kg of tomatoes, 2000kg of mozzarella cheese, 200 litres of oil and 30kg of basil.
It was then baked in line with the city’s best tradition by wood-fire in five custom-made motorised ovens.
The record attempt had initially been scheduled for May 22 but had to be postponed because of bad weather in the southern Italian city.
