  The previous Guinness world record for the Largest Pizza measured 122 feet in diameter and was created by Norwood Pick'n Pay hypermarket in South Africa in the 1990s.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest calzone; it weighed 31.4 kg (69.3 lb) and was made by Mike Wilson and fellow employees of the Loveshack restaurant, West Lafayette, Indiana, USA. The world's largest calzone measured 2.84 m (9 ft 4 in) in length and 55.88 cm (22 in) wide.

   The World's Largest Pizza was made with 5,000 batches of dough and took 48 hours to bake.

  The team was headed by Dovilio Nardi, whose previous endeavors have involved forming an Italian pizza chain that catered toward customers with celiac disease. The event was organized by Dr. Schar, a company that produces gluten-free food.

  The chefs named their creation Ottavia to pay tribute to Rome's first emperor Octavian Augustus, who enjoyed a good slice of pizza every now and then.

With innovation and research, gluten-free foods are now even more tasty, delicious and nutritious than ever."
