The worlds longest pizza record is now in the USA cooked in Fontana

When someone says hey lets make the longest pizza ever made, get it qualified by the Guinness Book of World Records and steal the record from the birthplace of pizza Southern California makes sense. The weather here is almost always sunny and warm and we rarely to we see a rain cloud. Then you need a location right? Most would say do it at the Rose Bowl, Colosseum or even Dodger stadium right? Nope when the Carson, Ca based company who first dreamed up this idea thought of a location the Inland Empire was their choice smack dab at the Auto Club Speedway home of California NASCAR Racing.

The old record was held by Italy with a length of 6,082 ft in 2016 when the owner of Italforni USA saw that the record was outside of the US he said this record needs to be brought here. The old record was 6,082 feet in Italy the plans were to mash that record by thousands of feet but a few mishaps in the pizza making process left the US team to beat the old record by 251 feet.

The day didn’t go off without a hitch or two. The first problem was when they lost time and feet to the pizza bunching up inside the ovens and burning up. The second problem came when the scaffold got caught under the rolling oven and stopped the progress. Both times the team overcame each obstacle and regrouped. Part of this 24 hour process was Fontana Pizza Restaurant Owner Jose Torres of My NY Pizza. Jose can be seen below helping the group repair a broken part of the pizza cooking process.

What didn’t end up qualifying for a world record for the simple fact that there was not a category for it was the massive curving scaffold that went for 1.3 miles. At Pac scaffold a scaffolding supplier supplied the miles of equipment for the event and multiple scaffold installation companies from the Inland Empire built the massive cooking surface for the world record pizza.

The new record pizza was done with 8007 lbs of dough, 3602 lbs of cheese and 5604 lbs of sauce. To top that off the Italforni USA employee Elmer thought up and was the lead person behind the design of this massive 3 oven rolling cooking contraption. Jason form PizzaOvens.com told us that for the event that they had twelve one hundred gallon propane tanks to heat these ovens at 900 degrees for over 20 hours.

Public Safety takes a Break from Regular Duties to Attend Mayors Jazz Festival

So it appears that police from three different cities will be hanging around Jerry Eves Park in North Rialto. Mayor Robertson has brought back her failure of a Jazz Fest event once again to the city of Rialto. This time instead of just wasting our resources three cities are wasting valuable public safety resources on yet another failed event.

Whoever the Mayor has running her ticket sales they should have learned from the last failed event that dropping ticket prices at the last minute tells people WE CAN’T SELL THESE TICKETS. Normally you give early birds a great price then the general admission price kicks in, but Mayor Robertson not having a business bone in her body just can’t seem to learn how to course correct for the life of her. As you can see the price never went back up it stayed at the $45 price event at the day of the event.

Like it or not our Mayor has once again took it upon herself to spend YOUR tax dollars on a PRIVATE event without any outside oversight, here is a list of what DA Ramos and his staff are refusing to look into:

  • City Commissioners say that Pam Kennedy the Main office Manager was passing out a stack of what looked to be at least 200 tickets out to city staff and commissioners. Who paid for these tickets?
  • Police from Rialto, Fontana and San Bernardino are being used to “Police” the event. Watching Mayor Aquenetta Warrens FB live videos the police are partying right along side the event guests.
  • Nobody else has ever been allowed to completely shut down a public park EVER!!!! Let alone break park rules allowing Alcohol, Tobacco and Marijuana to be consumed in public park property.
  • Leveraging against local vendors forcing them to purchase large ticket purchases to keep getting lucrative contracts with the City of Rialto. Burrtec, Rialto Water Services LLC, Rialto’s Grant Writers and many more are constantly used to try and make these events successful.
  • Giving preferential treatment to one ride sharing company over others. Mayor Robertson not only excluded Uber drivers from working the event, some drivers have been told to remove their Uber sicker if they drive for both Uber and Lyft. Lyft is the only company allowed to work the event.    

There is nothing wrong with helping a non profit.

There is nothing wrong with helping kids.

There is A LOT wrong with making special rules for yourself, allowing people to speed and drive drunk. There is also something wrong with not following the rules laid out for our PUBLIC parks. Some of the most restrictive rules the mayor supported herself. There are people every weekend using our parks and they get into trouble if they drive cars onto the grass, bring alcohol into the park, smoke tobacco or marijuana in our parks or restrict others from using a PUBLIC PARK.

If people that were previously cited for breaking these rules were smart they would get their citations reversed off of the cities double standard when it comes to enforcing their own municipal code.
