Pizza Hut and YouTuber Eric “Airrack” Decker have reportedly been awarded the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest pizza.
According to a press release issued by Pizza Hut, the American multinational restaurant chain and the creator of video content Eric “Airrack” Decker collaborated to create their record-breaking 13,990-square-foot pizza at the Los Angeles Convention Center. On Wednesday, January 18, Pizza Hut received recognition from Guinness World Records for the pizza.
For clarification, Fox News Digital contacted Guinness World Records.
According to Pizza Hut, the company baked, put together, and displayed its record-breaking pizza in Los Angeles, California.
According to Pizza Hut’s press release, the pizza was made with approximately 630,496 pepperoni slices, 4,948 pounds of sweet marinara sauce, more than 8,800 pounds of cheese, and 13,653 pounds of dough.
In order to commemorate the relaunch of its Big New Yorker, a menu item that the restaurant chain offered in the 1990s, Pizza Hut reportedly decided to create the world’s largest pizza.
In a statement, Pizza Hut President David Graves stated, “Our customers have been begging us to bring back the Big New Yorker for more than two decades, so we knew we had to do something big.”
Decker joined Pizza Hut on a record-breaking mission to recognize his expanding YouTube following.
“Thanks to my community, 2022 was a BIG year for our channel and I promised them that we’d break this record if they helped me hit 10 million subscribers on YouTube, so here we are delivering on that promise,” Decker said in a statement. “To make it happen, we had to team up with the most iconic – and my favorite – pizza brand to show that NO ONE OutPizzas the Hut.”
According to Pizza Hut, the largest pizza in the world will be donated to Los Angeles charities.
