Pizza record
Monday, 15 December 2003

PORT Macquarie has proven itself the most pizza-lovin' town in Australia.

Forget about who can run fastest, jump highest or throw furthest because Port Macquarie residents and visitors can eat more pizza in one day than any other town in Australia.

Now that's an achievement.

There were some full stomachs walking around town on the Sunday of the State Cup, but we did consume 4890 pizzas on Saturday between 9am and midnight.

For the 33 Domino's Pizza staff, that meant cooking five pizzas a minute.

During their busiest hour staff made 799 pizzas between 5pm and 6pm, which meant a two-hour wait for some customers, but then it's not every day you try and break a national pizza-selling record. Normally Domino's would sell about 4500 pizzas a week.

Franchisee Leroy Day said the only way to get around the wait would be to buy another three ovens.

"We warned everyone it was coming, but we didn't realise it would be this big," he said.

The last record was set by Tamworth in June, when Domino's sold 3391 pizzas. Mr Day was hoping to reach between 3500 and 4000 pizzas.

So, what pizzas do Port Macquarians like the best? Delight Mozzarella proved a popular choice of the day, but by far the biggest sellers were the traditional supreme, Hawaiian and meat-lovers pizzas.

"Probably the hardest task was keeping the pizza make line stocked for the pizza makers," Mr Day said.

"Over the day we used 715kg of cheese, 982kg of flour and heaps of local vegetables including 400kg of local onions."

As for trying to set another record, Mr Day said he would have another go only if this one was broken.
