Pizza-Making Record – level 2
Four hundred chefs in Buenos Aires, Argentina, teamed up to make pizzas together. They wanted to beat the world record for the most pizzas made in 12 hours.
They used 3 tonnes of flour, 2.7 tonnes of cheese and 88,000 olives. They also used 14 industrial-sized ovens which baked six pizzas a minute.
In the end, they beat the record by more than 1,000 pizzas – they made 11,287 pizzas!
Difficult words: chefs (a professional cook), flour (white material, which looks like sand, and is used for making pizza or bread), industrial-sized (very big – used in factories which make many pizzas).
