Spotted on Instagram: U.S. Breaks ‘Longest Pizza’ Guinness Record

By Denise Greer


Representatives from Guinness World Records were on hand to certify USA’s longest pizza record attempt at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California on June 10th, 2017. The finished pizza stretched 6,333 feet. That is nearly 1.2 miles long. The previous record of 6,082 feet was made in Naples, Italy in 2016.

A team of pizza makers from across the country, including Tony Gemignani, Giulio Adriani, Tom Lehmann, John Arena, Fred Mortati, Massimo Balacchi, Mario Vollera and Jimmy DeSisto, worked with volunteers assemble and bake the new record-breaking pizza.
