By Ben Hooper

May 25 (UPI) -- A team of 100 pizza makers teamed up in Italy to set a new Guinness World Record for the longest Neapolitan fried pizza.

The pizza makers constructed the fried pizza -- which is composed of a circular closed dough with the cheese, sauce and toppings inside -- and dipped it into boiling oil on Wednesday in Naples to create the 23.5-foot-long pizza.

The pizza-makers said the record was a matter of pride, as the previous record was held by pizza makers in Milan.
