This is the pizza with the latest Guiness record. It stretches more than 6,079 feet -- or 1.15 miles to clinch and actually, set the new world record for longest pizza ever made.
The marathon margherita built in Naples, Italy, by a team of 250 pizza chefs was completed after 11 harrowing hours.
According to Fox News five motorized wood-burning stoves were required for the effort, and more than 2 tons of flour and mozzarella cheese, 3,527 pounds of tomato sauce, 200 liters of olive oil and 66 pounds of fresh basil needed.
Guinness reportedly confirmed that all of the ingredients were sourced locally from the Campania region, known as the "home of pizza", as slices were donated to onlookers while surplus pizza was donated to the needy, after the record was confirmed.
The new champion pizza beats the previous record-holder by one-sixteenth of a mile.
