Gluten-free Pizza Sets Record for World's Largest Pie

Celiac.com 01/11/2013 - In case you were wondering just how big gluten-free pizza has become, the answer is: Big. Very big. World-record big.

Photo: Business WireConsider the recent news from Italy, where five chefs joined forces to craft the world's largest pizza, a pizza which also happens to be gluten-free.

The pie shattered the previous world record for largest pizza ever baked, and set a new record for world's largest gluten-free pizza.

To make the pizza, the chefs used 19,800 pounds of Schar gluten-free flour, 2,480 gallons of water, 10,000 pounds of tomato sauce, 8,800 pounds of mozzarella cheese, 1,488 pounds of margarine, 551 pounds of rock salt, 275 pounds of parmesan cheese, 220 pounds of lettuce and 55 pounds of vinegar, and 298 gallons of yeast.

The final product required two full days of cooking to complete. It was 131-feet across, and topped the scales at a whopping 51,257 pounds.

According to the Guinness World Records, the previous record for the largest circular pizza ever baked belonged to a pie made in Norwood, South Africa by Norwood Hypermarket on December 8, 1990. That pizza weighed 26,883 pounds. It measured 122 feet, 8 inches in diameter, weighed 26,883 pounds, and contained 9,920 pounds of flour, 3,960 pounds of cheese, 1,763 pounds of mushrooms, 1,984 pounds of tomato puree, and 1,984 pounds of chopped tomatoes.

The Italian cooking team was headed by Dovilio Nardi, who had previously helped to create an Italian pizza chain that catered toward people with celiac disease. The event was organized by Dr. Schar, a company that produces gluten-free food.

Spicely Organics lab certifies all their spices gluten-free. The turmeric and curry powder they have is safe, also Thai Kitchen Curry Paste is certified Gluten free....I like you do not trust the normal curry powders or most blends with it.

In 1978 Virginia Slims' magazine advertising spouted "You've Come A Long Way Baby".

If the people with peanut allergies c...

I would be willing to bet that nothing changed in that product except the label. A bunch of companies seemed to have decided that they need to put "May contains allergens " on the everything to be safe. But I wouldn't buy it any longer.

If you want testing for celiac you will have to go back on gluten for 2 to 3 months for the blood test. There is a chance that your biopsy will be positive but if not then a challenge is in order. It would be a good idea to have your son tested also to keep him safe in school etc. He would need t...

I've assumed for the last 8 years that I have gluten intolerance, or NCGS as I see it's now called. I thought that I had testing done (blood tests) that indicated I did not have celiac disease, and proceeded to follow a gluten free diet, most of the time. I've had gluten different times for diffe...
