Mamma mia, that's a long pizza!

More than 100 chefs set a Guinness World Record on Thursday in Naples, Italy, when they made a cheese pizza that measured over a mile long.

The massive pie, which stretched down a seaside road, used more than 4,400 pounds of flour, 3,500 tomatoes and 52 gallons of olive oil, according to Guinness. No matter how much you love pizza, there is no WAY you could eat this whole thing:

At about 1.15 miles in length, Thursday's pie broke the previous world record of just under one mile, set last year at Expo Milan. The new record-holder took 11 hours to make, with the help of portable ovens brought in for the event.

Afterward, everyone in the crowd got a slice to eat, and the rest was given to people in need.

Now THAT'S amore.
