February 9 is celebrated as National Pizza Day, and Americans can thank Lombardi's, founded by Gennaro Lombardi, which opened the first pizzeria in New York in 1905 to serve Neapolitan-style pizzas. Located in the Little Italy section of Manhattan, it's still in business today. Back in earlier times, pizzas were made by bakeries as a way to use ovens after the morning bread baking was completed. After Lombardi opened the pizzeria in 1905, it was a walk in and carry out establishment. Chairs and tables weren't added until the 1930s.

What is The World Record For The Longest Pizza? #

According to the Guinness, the longest pizza measured 6,333 feet in length and was achieved by a team of over 100 people in California last year over the course of 54 hours.  The record-breaking challenge was organized by Pizza Ovens, a business providing restaurant equipment.  The pizza was made using approximately 17,700 pounds of dough, 5,000 pounds of tomato sauce and 3,900 pounds of mozzarella cheese. To cook the 1.3-mile-long pizza, a special, mobile oven reaching 1,000 degrees drove over it.  The mozzarella-covered monster was big enough to feed around 10,000 people.  The previous record holder was a 6,080 feet pizza created by 250 chefs who took on the challenge in Naples in May 2016.

What is The World's Largest Pizza Chain With Over 16,000 Locations Worldwide? #

Pizza Hut is a subsidiary of Yum! Brands, and is the world’s largest pizza company with nearly 16,000 restaurants in more than 86 countries and territories worldwide. Pizza Hut was founded in June 1958 by two Wichita State University students, brothers Dan and Frank Carney, as a single location in Wichita, Kansas.  The brothers borrowed $600 from their mother and opened a pizza restaurant catering to students after a local real estate agent with an unrented building convinced them that pizza would be a promising business.  By 1977, Pizza Hut had grown to 4,000 outlets and the brothers decided to sell the business to PepsiCo for over $300 million. Frank remained the president and a board member of Pizza Hut until 1980.
