Argentina: New Guinness world record - 11,000 pizzas made in just 12 hours!

Argentina, Buenos Aires

Argentina humbled Italian pizza masters when it managed to set a new Guinness World Records for the highest number of pizzas produced in 12 hours with 11,000 pizzas baked in Buenos Aires on Sunday.

Organised by the Association of Owners of Pizzerias and Empanadas Houses (Appyce), the event also set a new record for the highest number of empanadas - savoury pastries - with 11,000 produced in under eight hours.

A team of 400 people worked in rotating one-hour shifts to achieve the dual under the close supervision of an official Guinness World Records adjudicator.

To achieve this crazy dream, the team needed "3,000 kilos of pizza flour, 3,000 kilos of buffalo mozzarella, 1,200 litres of 'Gentleman' tomato sauce, 88,000 'Gentleman' olives and 150 litres of olive oil," explained Appyce's President Manuel Jamargo.

The pizzas had to conform to a pre-determined diameter and shape in order to pass the judge's watchful eye.

The previous record was held by an Italian team, who managed to prepare 10,065 pizzas in 12 hours back in 2017.

Proceedings from pizza sales went to Argentina Down Syndrome Association while extra pizzas were donated to charities and aid organisations.
