Two locals help set world record for Longest Pizza in the World

Now that's a big pizza pie!

Note: we are so aware that the pics of this giant wonder are a little less than ideal. But remember, the chefs are focused on the pie - not taking photos!

Chef Brian Gojdics and Dillon Varrelman of Tutta Bella in Issaquah were in California this past week to help pizza makers from all over the world set a new Guinness World Record for the "Longest Pizza in the World!" They were the only two PNWers. Way to represent, guys! The pizza topped out at over a mile long!

"I am proud to be part of a group of pizza makers from across the world that set a new Guinness World Record for the longest pizza in the world hovering just below 1.3 miles,” said Gojdics. "It was a crazily intense night full of seeing old friends, meeting new people, sharing stories, listening, learning, relating, talking hydration levels and ferments, pushing a roll of Teflon over chicken wire for over a mile, waiting, and lots and lots and lots of pizza."

All of the product and proceeds from the event went to the local homeless shelters and food banks! Good cause and world record. What a day to be alive!
