The longest pizza measures 1,853.88 m (6,082 ft 3.40 in) and was achieved by Napoli Pizza Village (Italy), in Naples, Italy, on 18 May 2016.

The pizza was running from the US Consulate (Repubblica Square) to Castel dell'Ovo along the picturesque bay of the Caracciolo's seafront. 250 proud masters of traditional Neapolitan pizza had gathered from all over the world and as far as Australia, Asia and Japan for the record attempt. 2,000 kg of flour, 1,600 kg of tomatoes, 2,000 of 'fiordilatte' cheese, 200 litres of olive oil, from strictly local suppliers, was the recipe for success. 5 wood fired portable ovens, each constructed on 4 wheels, had been specially created for the event. Each oven, controlled by about 25 people, had four openings, two to allow the pizza to enter in an out and the other two for the wood supply. The pizza was resting on a long, single, flexible, perforated, steel, 50 cm (1 ft 7.68 in) wide baking tray to allow cooking to great standards. It had been prepared strictly in line with the guidelines of the Pizza TSG, acronyms for 'traditional speciality guaranteed' officially recognised on 5 February 2010 by the European Union.
