Guinness World Records has officially verified that John Arena, co-founder and co-owner of Metro Pizza, alongside fellow industry leaders Tony Gemignani and Giulio Adriani, set the Guinness World Record for the World’s Longest Pizza on June 10 at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif.
Arena, Gemignani and Adriani led the effort over months of planning and preparation, culminating in 23 straight hours of work by more than a hundred volunteers to create the tomato and cheese pizza officially measuring 6,333 feet and 3.60 inches (1,930.39 meters).
“This achievement was all about collaboration,” said Arena. “It belongs to all of the dedicated pizza makers who showed unwavering commitment throughout the entire process, as well as Fash Asvadi of Italforni, Harrison Billig of Venice Bakery, Fred Mortati of Orlando Foods and all the other sponsors.”
