As Americans we know our pizza! From the deep-dish of Chicago to the flavor combinations of Hawaii, it's about time that we get some recognition on the world stage for knowing our pie.
The United States now holds the Guinness World Record for longest pizza on planet Earth.
Pizza masters from all across the country gathered at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California to dethrone Italy, the birthplace of pizza, which set a new world record last year for their 1.15 mile pizza.
The single sheet of dough, sauce and cheese stretched more than 6,330 feet- over a mile in length around the racetrack.

The pizza was cooked by conveyor oven, drew crowds who watched the team shatter the record and celebrated with them afterwards.
Even the little hands pitched in to help make this famous pizza!
Everyone was in good spirits when the award was presented for all their hard work.
"Definitely an amazing feat. We were at the sceda race at the speedway dragstrip and got to watch them make this pizza from our pit. I'd say 99% of it was donated and a few were able to try it. While definitely not the best pizza, at least we were able to say we got a taste of the worlds longest pizza. Great job!!!! It was hard work I'm sure," Michael Agnew wrote on Facebook.
It seems like there's a quick turnover for this particular foodie prize, so I wonder who will try and break the record next?
