More than 100 pizza makers successfully served up a new Guinness World Records title for Longest pizza in California last weekend.
Organised by Pizzaovens.com, the attempt saw volunteers gather to help set the record at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana.
The company, which is known as the biggest distributors of name-brand restaurant equipment in the U.S, wanted to showcase the capability of their pizza ovens while also engaging local consumers.
Pizzaovens.com had the pressure of beating the previous record of 1,853.88 m (6,082 ft 3.40 in) achieved in Naples, Italy - the birthplace of pizza.
Despite the tough target, they managed to achieve a total length of 1,930.39 m (6,333 ft 3.60 in), just surpassing the former record holder.
Dozens of chefs were in charge of crafting the enormous pizza, which was made using 3,632 kg of dough, 1,634 kg of cheese and 2,542 kg of sauce.
As the dough was stretched for the record, it ran along a conveyer belt which passed through three industrial ovens, which cooked the pizza nonstop for eight hours.
Volunteers helped to shift the oven every 17 minutes so as to not burn the dough.
Official adjudicator Christina Flounders Conlon, who was present at the event, said “This was an incredible, year-long effort by a huge team of people. They executed their attempt impressively, including pivoting a bit to deal with a couple unexpected setbacks.”
Following the event, all pizza slices were donated to local food banks and homeless shelters.
