TIL: Los Angeles pizzeria chain Big Mama's and Papa's sells a pizza that feeds 50 to 70 people. Their creation is called the "Giant Sicilian" and it boasts the title of world's "largest pizza commercially available" with Guinness World Records.
It's a square 54 inches by 54 inches (for comparison, the average ten-year-old girl is 54 inches tall) and is priced starting at $249.99.
YouTube commenter NOT BASIC points out that it's not a great deal, at least from a financial standpoint:
This is a bad deal if you think about it (pies)*(slices) = 200 slices then compare price
Domino's large 7.99 carryout deal (25)*(8) = 200 slices = 199.75+ Tax < 249.99 *also each pizza is 3 toppings!
Pizza Hut large 7.99 carryout deal (25)*(8) = 200 slices = 199.75+ Tax < 249.99 *also each pizza is 2 toppings!
Papa Johns 9.99 Any Pan Pizza (20)*(10) = 200 slices = 199.80+ Tax < 249.99 *also each pizza is 5 toppings!
Little Caesars 5.00 hot n ready deal (25)*(8) = 200 slices 125 + Tax < 249.99 *Pepperoni or cheese.
I could technically get 400 slices or 50 pepperoni pizzas from Little Caesars for the price of this meaning its double the value!
But, from a giant novelty pizza standpoint, it might just be the best deal around.
Especially since THIS is how they deliver it:

Asian Boss asked Japanese people on the streets in Tokyo to try American style sushi. “I can see that they try to hide the fish flavor by using mayonnaise and adding a bunch of avocado.” Indeed.
In the latest episode of Asian Boss, people in the streets of Japan are given American style sushi and asked what they think about it. Most of them don’t consider the complex, spicy concoctions to be sushi at all. Sample comments: “This is sushi?” “It tastes like Indian food.” “Japanese people won’t like this.” “Not […]
