Many pizzerias in the country can make “monster” or oversized pizzas. One such restaurant in Quezon City boasts a 65-inch diameter pizza good for up to 200 people. Others can easily beat the “supreme” of a popular pizza chain with their one-meter diameter pies.
In Australia, there was an extreme version of pizza when Pellegrini’s Italian located in a Sydney suburb created a 103-meter long Margherita pizza. The process of making it was different as meter-long doughs were attached and cooked in a conveyor oven on Sunday.
When the 16-inch-wide pizza was done, it stretched longer than an American football field along Kiln Road in Kirrawee.
About 4,000 slices of the pizza were offered to more than 3,000 people in exchange for cash donations for New South Wales Rural Fire Service firemen who were battling Australia’s bushfires.
Another pizza “extreme” was one from Eskisehir, Turkey that was delivered to a customer’s house in 2017.
The ordinary-sized pizza may send the delivery guy to the lam for 18 years for spitting on the pie before handing it over to the customer.
A security camera in the customer’s apartment block captured Burak’s act which he also recorded on his mobile phone. The owner of the apartment building alerted the customer after watching the video footage, prompting the latter to file a criminal complaint against the defendant.
A court already fined him 4,000 lira (600 euros) for endangering a customer’s health, but prosecutors sought a lengthy prison sentence for “poisoning food.”
If the court sentences Burak accordingly, he will be imprisoned longer than a convicted member of a terrorist organization, a crime that carries a sentence of only 15 years.
