Judge of the Guinness World Records Lorenzo Veltri checks the length of a pizza at the Expo 2015 world's fair in Rho, near Milan, Saturday, June 20, 2015. More than 60 of Italy's best pizza-makers worked through the night to create a 1.59545 kilometers, or nearly a mile long pizza at Milan's world fair. Their toil was rewarded with a proclamation by Guinness World Records judge Saturday that it was the world's longest pizza. Expo organizers said the record-setting pie, made with 1.5 tons of mozzarella and 2 tons of tomato sauce, weighed some 5 tons in all. (Daniele Mascolo/ANSA via AP)

THE world record for the longest pizza has been set in Italy – a sizzling Margherita more than one and a half kilometers long made with 1500kg of tomatoes, one and a half tones of mozzarella and a huge volume of virgin olive oil. The pizza took three minutes per metre to cook in five specially prepared ovens using 80 chefs.
