The Guinness World Records, which has nearly 5 million followers on Instagram, often shares extraordinary posts of world record holders on its account. Recently, it shared an image of YouTuber Eric Decker, who set a world record in collaboration with Pizza Hut by making the largest pizza in the world.
The giant Italian dish comprised 68,000 slices which dripped in 8000lb of cheese. "True story: When I was 8 yrs old I threw a pizza party at a bowling alley and no one showed up. To get revenge, I spent the past 18 years scheming how to make the world’s largest pizza and today it happened. No one out-pizzas the hut,” the YouTuber said.
