The record was shattered on January 18 in Los Angeles in celebration of the return of Pizza Hut’s iconic fan-favorite Big New Yorker pizza as well as Airrack hitting 10 million subscribers.
The World’s Largest Pizza, which featured a Big New Yorker pizza recipe, had a surface area of nearly 14,000 square feet. To break the record, the record setting pizza was made of approximately 13,653 pounds of dough, 4,948 pounds of sweet marinara sauce, over 8,800 pounds of cheese and roughly 630,496 regular and cupped pepperoni. The pizza was fully assembled, topped and then baked in pieces on-site at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Following its creation, the pizza from the World’s Largest Pizza was donated to several charities in Los Angeles.
Inspired by the spirit of New York, The Big New Yorker consists of an XL 16-inch pizza featuring six oversized, foldable slices with crispy crust and bold flavors including sweet marinara sauce and Parmesan oregano seasoning on top.
You can find The Big New Yorker pizza at participating Pizza Hut restaurants nationwide for a limited-time only starting February 1, 2023. Hut Rewards members will get exclusive access to try the Big New Yorker starting January 31, 2023.
In addition to the World’s Largest Pizza title, Pizza Hut also holds the Guinness World Record for the highest altitude pizza delivery on land. The pizza was delivered to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania in 2016 at an altitude of 19,341 feet.
