This is no new record, but we call a comeback as NAPLES reclaimed the world record for the longest pizza after more than 200 chefs rolled out and cooked a mile-long margherita on the waterfront of the doughy delicacy’s home city.

The record-breaking snack measured up at exactly 1853.88 metres, smashing the previous record of 1595.45 metres set at last year’s World Expo in Milan, Italy’s food and agriculture board Coldiretti said.

Hundreds of chefs from all over the world spent most of Wednesday assembling the pizza from raw ingredients of 2000kg of flour, 1600kg of tomatoes, 2000kg of mozzarella cheese, 200 litres of oil and 30kg of basil.

It was then baked in line with the city’s best tradition by wood-fire in five custom-made motorised ovens.

The record attempt had initially been scheduled for Sunday but had to be postponed because of bad weather in the southern Italian city.

It was organised to promote Italy’s bid to have the art of Neapolitan pizza-making recognised by UNESCO as part of the world’s heritage, distinguishing it from what purists consider to be inferior forms found elsewhere.

This is a very yummy record, I have to say. (How many people do you think are go to eat that?)

Hmmmm. I know I would create a World Record or Break someone's own someday.. Don't you think so?
