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:
