Chefs in Rome have cooked up the world’s largest gluten-free pizza, inexplicably named “Ottavia” (I mean, it’s inexplicable that a pizza has a name; “Ottavia” is a perfectly good name for a pizza if you’re going to name a pizza, I guess). It’s the size of an Olympic swimming pool and weighs 50,000 pounds, so good luck eating a slice, although you could possibly make a large tent out of one and live in it if necessary.

Here are some of Ottavia’s vital stats:

  • 9.9 tons of gluten-free flour
  • 2,480 gallons of water
  • Five tons of tomato sauce
  • 4.4 tons of mozzarella cheese
  • 1,488 pounds of margarine
  • 551 pounds of salt
  • 275 pounds of parmesan cheese
  • 298 gallons of yeast
  • Zero anchovies

What’s the point of turning a swimming pool’s worth of food into an inedible behemoth? Well, the goal, according to the organizer, was to raise awareness about gluten intolerance and celiac disease. But given that the organizer was Dr. Schar Group, which produces gluten-free foods, we suspect that the main goal was to raise awareness about Dr. Schar Group.
