The Mayor's Office of Special Events announced that Lou Malnati's will be constructing a Guinness-World-Record-breaking Chicago stuffed pizza at the Daley Center plaza today at noon.
Sure enough, as I walked past the Daley Center last night (11:00 p.m.), workers were busy constructing the supports that will hold up this monstrous pie. News crews were already set up--one crew from Japan was munching on takeout stuffed pizza (how quaint, I thought).
Malnati's website contained the particulars: 51'2" in diameter, 3 tons of cheese, 1.5 tons of sauce, 2.4 tons of dough. Unfortunately, the Health Department will not allow consumption. But, it'll be good for a show, at least.
