Argentine chefs cook up thousands of pizzas for world-record attempt

2018-11-12 19:36
Hundreds of pizza chefs are working hard for their dough in Buenos Aires on Sunday (November 11), looking to break the Guinness World Record for the most pizzas made in 12 hours. Gathered in the Argentine capital's downtown, they are looking to make 11,000 pizzas in total, or 1,500 pizzas per hour. The current record holder is Italy with 10,065 pizzas. For the massive event, organisers have set aside 3,000 kilos (6,613 pounds) of flour and 1,100 litres (2,420 pounds) of tomato sauce for the occasion. Each pizza must also be at least 30.5 centimetres (11.8 inches) in diameter. To complicate matters, the chefs will also be making 8,000 empanadas in just eight hours. After they are made, the pizzas will be sold with proceeds going to local charities. The results of the attempt will be confirmed by Guinness later in the day on Sunday.
