Many people have turned pizza making and pizza eating into somewhat
of a competition. Here are some of the records people have set doing so.
The largest pizza ever made was 37.4 meters in diameter made at a market
in Johannesburg, South Africa. It was made in 1990 with 500 kg of flour,
800 kg of cheese and 900 kg of tomato.
The longest pizza delivery was from Capetown, South Africa to Sydney,
Australia (6861 miles) completed by Bernard Jordaan in March, 2001, but
was recently broken in 2004, on a journey to deliver a vegetarian pizza
from Feltham, England to Melbourne, Australia. The journey was over 10,000
In 2006, Cristian Dumitru of Romania ate 200 pounds of pizza in a week
which is more than his body weight. This broke Takeru Kobayashi’s
(competitive eating superstar) record. Takeru later argued that the pizza
that Christian ate had a too low ‘sauce:
cheese’ ratio to be actually be considered pizza.
As funny as it is, the record for most deliveries in one night was the night
OJ Simpson made his famous run from the cops.
