An Italian restaurant created a 103-meter long Margherita pizza that was gobbled up for charity.
Siblings Pierre and Rosemary Moio, owners of Pellegrini's Italian in a Sydney suburb, wanted to do something for the men and women in uniform risking their lives to battle the country's devastating bushfires.
On 19th January, they started cooking the pizza by rolling out meter-long pieces of dough, sticking them together and topping it with tomato sauce and mozzarella before the behemoth was baked in a conveyor oven. The pie was longer than an American football field!
After four hours, the rectangular pizza, seasoned with fresh basil, oregano and olive oil, stretched more than 100 meters along Kiln Road at South Village, in the Sydney suburb of Kirrawee. It was cut into 4,000 slices to feed the crowd that turned up to donate for the New South Wales Rural Fire Service.
