Pizza-Making Record – level 1

24-01-2022 15:00

Four hundred chefs in Buenos Aires, Argentina, come together. They want to set a new world record. It is the record for the most pizzas made in 12 hours.

They use 3 tonnes of flour, 2.7 tonnes of cheese and 88,000 olives. They have 14 very big ovens. These ovens make six pizzas a minute.

In the end, the chefs set a new world record. They make 11,287 pizzas.

Difficult words: chefs (a professional cook), flour (a white material, which looks like sand, and is used for making pizza or bread), oven (a machine which gets hot to bake/make a pizza or other food).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
