Riding my bike to the beach on the very busy Lungomare (seaside promenade) of my town of Marina di Massa I was surprised to see the road partially closed. Because of Summer time the area was already very busy and with one side of the road closed it was going to be insane moving around. I kept riding and I was so happy to discover that the road was closed because my fellow villagers were trying to beat a new record. They were trying to make a Pizza worth a Guinness World Record!
In typical Italian style only local ingredients were used to make this incredible pizza! 2 tons of flour and 30 kilos (66 pounds) of basil is what it took to beat the old record held by Poland and become part of history.
The work started on Saturday at 11:30 pm and the world record was achieved before the set time of 7 pm on Sunday. Things were rolling so well that by 4 pm the 1200 meters (almost 4000 feet) pizza was all done!
Congratulation to Marina di Massa!
Cook with your heart. Ciao Rima!
