Top 10 Biggest Pizza You Can Order
When it comes to culinary gifts, not many
countries can compete with Italy. From wines to pasta, Italian cuisine is famous worldwide.
But ask anyone about their favorite Italian food and the answer will always be pizza.
And like many things in life, the bigger the better. When it comes to pizza, size does
matter and these pies take it to the next level. So let’s take a bite out of the top
10 biggest pizzas you can order. The Bus – Moontower Pizza Bar, Burlson, Texas Since we’re talking about large sizes, Texas
has to feature somewhere on this list. It’s a big state and Texans are proud of their
large possessions. Ranches, cars, mansions, oil rigs. You name it. They all have to be
larger than life. So it should come as no surprise that pizza should join that undeclared
contest and break a record of its own. Moontower Pizza Bar took the challenge and decided to
do Texas proud. Measuring 8 feet by 2 feet 8 inches, this pie set new records for the
largest pizza you can order. Even though we have to be careful about declaring which pizza
is actually the largest in the world. These titles are not easy to keep since there’s
always a new pizza parlor willing to add a few inches to the diameter of their commercially
available pie and declare themselves the winners of the pizza war. So if you live within a
certain distance from Burlson, Texas and you have a humongous appetite, you can order The
Bus which will cost you $299.95. It comes with one topping and you have to place your
order 48 hours before it can be delivered to you. So, yeah, this is not your typical
idea of a fast food order. It’s not something you can just pick up the phone and order when
you’re feeling really hungry. The Giant Sicilian – Big Mama’s and Papa’s
Pizzeria – LA, California While The Bus may look huge and already has
a place on the Guinness World Records, this one from California will give it a run for
its money. Dubbed The Giant Sicilian, this pizza measures 54 inches by 54 inches and
is not a circle but a square. And get this, it too has been named as the biggest pizza
by the folks at Guinness. Which makes one wonder about these world records anyway. As
usual, this pizza with exceptional proportions can’t be ordered on a whim. You need to
give the restaurant 24 hours notice in advance and also make room for it in your fridge.
It costs $299.99 with each additional topping costing $19.99 more. If you want extra cheese
you’ll have to fork out $34.99 more. Of course, you can’t expect to eat this pizza
on your own. After all, it has around 200 slices and serves between 50 to 70 people
depending on the size of their appetite. So if you think you could eat it all by yourself
just to prove a point, well, that won’t do you any good. For one thing, there’s
no point to make here by eating a 2,916 square inch pizza. And also it means you’ll probably
have to reconsider your health and choices in life. Big Lou Super 42 – Big Lou’s Pizza, San
Antonio, Texas Of course, Texas won’t let it go. The fact
that a restaurant in California took away the coveted title of making the largest commercial
pizza in the world right from its own hands is simply an affront that calls for action.
Big Lou’s Pizza was up for the challenge and vowed to go all the way and save no effort
or money to bring back the title to Texas where it belongs. Big Lou’s chefs went down
to the farthest recesses of their kitchen to plan for their next big thing. The pizza
that will take on all other pizzas. After months of deliberations and trial and error,
they came out from the kitchen carrying the fruit of their labor. A 42-inch pizza was
placed squarely on the table in front of the expectant audience. Now you might say that
Big Lou has come up short, as any first grader would tell you that 42 inches is smaller than
the other pizzas we’ve mentioned. Still, it’s the effort that counts. The pizza was
christened “Big Lou Super 42” and even though the Guinness Book of Records didn’t
bother to show up, the attendants’ spirits were still high as they dug in and rejoiced
in the pizza bonanza. And to be fair, the Big Lou Super 42 has a distinct Texan style
that earned it a mention in the TV show Man vs. Food. So maybe it wasn’t a wasted effort
after all. Il Colosseo – Sydney, Australia Our next entry on this list comes from Downunder.
Now you can say all you like about Australia, but the people there tend to take challenges
a little bit more seriously than other countries. It might be because they’re used to challenges.
I mean, their daily life is a continuous struggle against a hostile environment where everything
is designed to kill you. This includes not just insects and animals, but plants as well.
And when you learn to survive among this hardy lot, then challenges become second nature.
Il Colosseo is a famous pizza restaurant in Sydney, Australia. When they heard about the
large pizza craze taking the whole world by storm, they took it personally. This was their
chance to put Australia on the culinary world map. So they got together on a fine evening
and proceeded to spread 7 pounds of cheese, 11 pounds of meat, and a couple of liters
of sauce over a monstrous pie, and the result was a whopping 70-inch pizza called The Collossus.
And if you think it was easy to bake this one, you’ll need to know that it needed
a custom kitchen to get it done. Some even go as far as to claim that the kitchen was
built around the pizza. But these are just rumors. The pizza itself costs $600 and requires
2 days of notice in advance. Super Slice – Pizza Barn, NYC New York City wasn’t going to take a place
among the spectators while pizza chefs from around the world were slugging it out on the
proverbial field. But the approach Pizza Barn took was subtle and nuanced. Rather than go
for a whole pie that weighs so many pounds and measures tens of inches, they decided
to create just a slice of pizza. But not just any slice. This is the mother of pizza slices.
They call it “Super Slice” and for a good reason. Just look at the slice carried by
two grown men. The first thought that comes to one’s mind is, are they going to finish
that on their own? And because this is New York, one size doesn’t fit all. The restaurant
offers Super Slice in many varieties. A regular 2-feet Super Slice will cost you just $12.
But other options are available. These include Stuffed Crust Super Slice, Salad Super Slice,
Margherita Super Slice, White Broccoli or White Spinach Super Slice, among others. The
most expensive slice on the menu is The Barn Yard. It comes with chicken fingers, bacon,
Mozzarella sticks, and french fries layered with mozzarella and American cheese, and costs
only $40. Not bad for a slice of pizza that can feed a whole family. Pin-Up Pizza – Las Vegas Pin-Up Pizza lives up to its name. The waitresses
are dressed like pin-up girls from the 1950s. But that’s not the Pin-Up’s only claim
to fame. They also serve the largest pizza on the Strip. A claim that hasn’t been disputed
as of yet. Which is rather surprising considering that this, after all, is Las Vegas, and crowned
champions don’t get to enjoy their fame for long before a contender throws their hat
in. But Pin-Up remains the Las Vegas sole maker of the largest pizza slice to be served
in Sin City. So what’s in these large pies? Well, for starters they measure up to 30 inches
in diameter. They’re topped with 26 ounces of mozzarella. And while they know very well
that you can’t possibly eat a 30-inch pizza all by your lonesome, the restaurant conveniently
slices it up for you, so you can buy just a slice. Sometimes the slice is too large
and it will have to be sliced in half to cater to the less hungry customer. And these giant
slices are popular with the diners. Every night the restaurant dishes out around 1400
slices of their super pizza. Jumbo Slice – Pizza Mart, Washington D.C. Many pizza restaurants quickly realized that
serving a giant pie that will take a few dozen people to finish is the kind of publicity
stunt that attracts customers but isn’t a very sustainable business model. And where
you don’t get large families frequently, as is the case in Washington D.C., you can
still get the diner’s attention and pique their curiosity with a slice of pizza that
defies all norms. Pizza Mart chose that last path and barrelled down full steam ahead.
Many of the late night clients come looking for a snack, and when they see that giant
slice of pizza on the menu, they just can’t resist it. It helps that the clients are possibly
under the influence and as we all know, alcohol tends to give you a larger than normal appetite.
Which probably explains why Pizza Mart remains open until 3 am. But this doesn’t mean that
the pizza slices are not worth it. These slices are just as yummy as they are gigantic. And
the fact that the restaurant still serves them is an indication that they are popular
among the customers whether the ones who come knocking at 2 am or those who order from home. El Buono – Quezon City, Philippines Next, on our list of the biggest pies you
can order is El Buono and it comes from the Philippines. We already mentioned that pizza
as a fast food item has universal appeal. And the Philippines seems to have a huge appetite
for pizza. So much so that this restaurant decided to offer a huge pie that would feed
around 150 people. The restaurant claims that this is Asia’s largest pizza. It’s a dubious
claim at best. Not because the pizza El Buono offers isn’t large, but because as we have
seen before, it won’t be long before another restaurant will step up and claim that honor.
It’s usually a matter of time for these short-lived glories. Now this pizza costs
around $190, which is not that expensive considering how many people it serves. It also comes with
4 toppings, not just one as is the case with other giant pizzas on this list. So, all in
all, it’s not a bad deal. The only problem is, you need to be physically in Quezon City
in order to get this 65-inch pizza delivered to you. How they deliver it is another problem
though. But we’ll leave that issue to the restaurant. Your main concern after getting
the pizza is to come up with 150 people to finish it off in one sitting. Nonna’s Pizza Slice – Chicago Chicago has a place on our list as well. While
the Chicago deep dish pizza is on the radar, the Windy City is more about the Bears, the
Bulls and the Cubs. These teams may be the first thing that come to mind when you think
about Chicago but when it comes to food, Chicago deep dish pizza is a close second. And while
they don’t serve the whole pie, these pizza slices will make your jaw drop. Nonna’s
does Chicago proud. And when you find yourself cruising down this historic city, make sure
to stop at Nonna’s and help yourself to one of their larger than life pizza slices.
The pie itself measures 63 inches which makes it a huge contender for the title of the largest
pizza in the world, but the restaurant serves only slices, not the whole thing. And just
to make things more interesting, there’s a food challenge there. Down two of those
one and a half pound pizza slices in half an hour and you get to be declared a winner.
You win a T-shirt and have your name published on their website. Now if a free t-shirt isn’t
worth chowing down on three pounds of pizza for, I don’t know what is. Mallie’s Sports Grill & Bar – Michigan Our number 1 spot goes to a 100-pound pie
that is made and delivered to the lucky residents of Southgate, Michigan. Moreover, delivery
is free if you live within a 5-mile radius of the restaurant. Which might give you pause
as you consider whether it was a good enough reason to move to Michigan after all. Now
this pie measures in feet not inches. It comes to your door in a 6×6 foot box. And you might
be tempted to eat it right then and there on the doorstep rather than go through the
hassle of trying to squeeze it through the door. But then you’ll need the help of around
100 people to finish it off. So maybe it would be better to take it to the park and have
a picnic. The pizza costs a good $300 which isn’t that pricey considering the number
of people it would feed. And that’s not the only oversized food item the restaurant offers
either. They are famous for their 10-pound hamburger among other things. They even once
created a huge pizza that weighed 1,793 pounds. Hope you’re hungry! Help yourself to another slice and tap that
