The World’s Largest Pizza Party

Today, RAM, Joy and I attended the world’s largest pizza party and witnessed the awesome sight of the world’s longest pizza.

The good folks at Big Apple Pizza hosted the event and provided the pizza as a fundraiser for their foundation. Part of the proceeds will go to one of the local firefighters and his family, who recently lost their home in the massive fires in Brevard County.

When RAM, Joy, and I arrived, we were personally greeted by the county sherriff, who began the count shortly after our arrival.

The sherriff and his crew are preparing to measure the pizza.

The 9-inch pies took three days to make and were laid side by side for the count.

756 9-inch pizzas lying side by side across 10-foot long plastic tables.

The current world record was 611 feet……until today. The new world record? The 756 9-inch pies laid side by side measured an astounding 722 feet and 1 inch. That beats the old record by 111 feet and 2 inches, according to the good folks from Guinness, who were present to witness the event.

Congrats to Scott and his crew for pulling this off! And thanks for the free pizza. You don’t often get to eat a piece of history.

What an enjoyable way to spend the day! Good food, good folks, and good reason to gather. The local sheriff is a truly nice guy and a “Hooray!” to Big Apple for sharing the proceeds with the firefighter who lost his home in those terrible fires.
