The pizza, which was displayed along the romantic Naples waterfront Wednesday, took about 11 hours to make.

The recipe included 2,000 kg of flour, 1,600 kg of tomatoes, 2,000 kg of fiordilatte cheese and 200 litres of olive oil, all sourced locally.

The chefs used five specially made portable wood fire ovens that moved like an assembly line to cook the pizza.
