The Milan Worlds Fair, Expo 2015 is in full swing and offers some strange entertainment at times. In this case, it was the attempt by over eighty of the best pizza maestros in Italy to break the Guinness Book of Records "World's Longest Pizza" record. The last record was set not in Italy, the home of pizza, but in Spain at less than 3/4 of a mile. The Milan pizza broke that record at nearly one mile long!
It took over 18 hours, working mostly at night, to make the pizza. It was basically a Pizza Margherita and was topped with 2 tons of pelati (peeled tomato sauce) and 1 - 1/2 tons of mozzarella cheese! It took 1.7 tons of flour to make the dough and five ovens to bake this Goliath pizza. The pizza was laid out on over 800 banquet tables. I wonder how many people it took to cut all the slices.
Visitors to the Expo were able to have slices of this gigantic pizza for free.
No word on if they deliver. (Besides, I don't think the box will fit in my recycling bin).
