The World’s Largest Retail Pizza Dough Delivery Order

Tuesday, October 30, 2012 by Jenny Dean

We’ve already told you about the world’s largest homemade pizza, but what about the largest retail pizza dough delivery? That had to be when Papa John’s broke the record for the largest pizza order ever to be delivered.

Frozen Pizza DoughThe order was for 13,500 pizzas that were brought to the General Dynamics NASSCA shipyard in San Diego on June 8, 2006 at 11:00 a.m.

So who was so hungry?

The pizzas were for thousands of employees that worked at the shipyard (over 6,000 in all), as well as different contractors and Naval staff. This team had just finished building the grand ship, USNS Lewis and Clark, a feat that took over two and a half years to complete. But while the act of delivering that many pizzas is impressive, and the ship itself undoubtedly even more so, the delivery was not officially given the record by Guinness Book of World Records for 5 plus years!

The previous record belonged to the VF Corporation of Greensboro, North Carolina. This company delivered almost as many pizzas as Papa John’s, but all at different times and different locations throughout the United States.  Eventually the delivery team who tackled the huge shipyard order gathered enough evidence for submission to Guinness, so they officially hold the record for this wholesome and delicious feat!
