The ingredients used were 3,632 kgs of dough, 1,634 kgs of cheese and 2,542 kgs of sauce. The dough was stretched along a conveyor belt which passed through three industrial ovens, and the pizza was cooked for eight long hours.
The oven was shifted every 17 minutes by the volunteers to ensure the dough did not burn. Following the event, all pizza slices were donated to local food banks and homeless shelters.
