Good morning Okanagan! Let’s get your Wednesday started!
Fun Fact: A Youtuber named Airrack and Pizza Hut collaborated to break the Guinness world record for the world’s largest pizza. The pizza is 13,900 square feet, and weighs in at 13,653 pounds with more than 630,000 pieces of pepperoni and was cut in 68,000 slices.
True story: When I was 8 yrs old I threw a pizza party at a bowling alley and no one showed up. To get revenge, I spent the past 18 years scheming how to make the worlds largest pizza and today it happened. No one out-pizzas the hut. @pizzahut pic.twitter.com/P3GzlmwdcX
