Pizza Hut and YouTuber Airrack Make Record Breaking Pizza

Airrack, a popular content creator and YouTube star, and Pizza Hut teamed up to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the World’s Largest Pizza on January 18 in Los Angeles, CA. Together, they set the record to celebrate both the return of Pizza Hut’s ‘The Big New Yorker,’ as well as Airrack hitting 10 million subscribers. Following its creation, the pizza from the World’s Largest Pizza was donated to several charities in Los Angeles.

The World’s Largest Pizza, which featured a Big New Yorker pizza recipe, had a surface area of nearly 14,000 square feet (13,990 to be exact). To break the record, the World’s Largest 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.

Pizza Hut already holds the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title 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.

“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,” said David Graves, President of Pizza Hut. “That’s why we’re setting this GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title with Airrack and fans to celebrate the return of this iconic pizza.”
