It is known for being the birthplace of pizza - and now chefs in the city of Naples have attempted to break records with their mouth-watering culinary skills.
A group of chefs joined forces and attempted to make the longest pizza in the world - stretching across more than one mile of the Italian coastline.
For the wood-fired pizza, which measured two kilometres, they used 2,000 kg of flour, 1,600 kg of tomatoes, 2,000 kg of mozzarella, 200 litres of oil, 30kg of fresh basil and 1500 litres of water. It took 100 chefs 11 hours to make the pizza and they hope to beat the current record of 1,595 metres, held by a pizza baked at Milan's food-themed Expo last year.
More than 35,000 slices were cut for visitors to the Expo and some 300 metres of pizza were given to the foodbank Banco Alimentare to be redistributed to charitable organisations that assist the poor and the needy.
The largest pizza on record had a total surface area of 1,261.65m².The pizza was named 'Ottavia', a word in homage to the first Roman emperor Octavian Augustus.
The largest pizza commercially available is 1 m 37 cm (4 ft 6 in) by 1 m 37 cm (4 ft 6 in) and is sold at the Big Mama's and Papa's Pizzeria in Los Angeles, California. The square pizza serves between 50 and 100 people and costs of ?137 ($199.99) plus tax and is deliverable within a certain area.
位于加利福尼亚的洛杉矶一家名为Big Mama And Papa's披萨店可以制作这种世界最大的披萨，不过是边长为1.37米（约6.4英尺）的正方形状。这种正方形的披萨可供50到100人分享，价格为137英镑（约合199.99美元），并且在规定区域内可以外送。
Mama's and Papa's Pizzeria needs a minimum of 24 hours notice to be able to make the pizza, which is a popular choice for childrens' and adults' parties.
但是，想要订购这种披萨，至少要提前24小时向Big Mama And Papa's披萨店预定。无论是孩子还是成年人开派对，这都是一个不错的选择。
