If you live in Southern California and don't order The Giant Sicilian for your next pizza party/group hangover/game day festivities, you've got some bigtime life reevaluating to do. The Giant Sicilian (with an incredibly epic name), is one of the world's largest deliverable pizzas. Big Mama's & Papa's Pizzeria, a franchise in SoCal makes the massive 20-square-foot pizza. It measures 4.5 x 4.5 feet (or 54' x 54'). For reference, an extra large pizza from Domino's is 16 inches, so The Giant Sicilian is more than three times that size.
The pie is so enormous that it previously held the world record for the largest deliverable pizza. In June, another ridiculously large pizza stole the title, but The Giant Sicilian still puts any pizza I've ever seen to shame. For starters, it feeds 50 to 70 people. DO YOU KNOW THAT MANY PEOPLE TO INVITE TO EAT PIZZA WITH YOU? If you're going to order the pizza for you and your 50+ friends, you must give Big Mama's & Papa's 24-hour advance notice. The Giant Sicilian is available for order from the Northridge and Burbank locations, according to Mama's & Papa's director of research. Per the website, there's a limited delivery area-as you might imagine, getting a 20-square-foot pizza from point A to a hungry crew at Point B is quite the production.

Also, get ready to send Venmo requests. Per the website, the pizza starts at $299.99 for just sauce and cheese, but if you're going to get one of the largest pizzas in the world, you're not really going to be that boring, are you?! Each additional topping is $19.99, and extra cheese is a whopping $34.99 (which makes sense, considering there's already more than five pounds of cheese on the pizza).
According to Food Insider, the Giant Sicilian starts with over 20 pounds of dough. Employees add the insane five-plus pounds of cheese and then about three pounds of pepperoni (if you buck up for extra toppings). The 'za is cut into 200 square slices, which means that if you have a par-tay of 50, each person could have four slices.

Per Food Insider, Big Mama's & Papa's loads the motherlode on a car-top carrier of sorts, and then heads out to deliver the pizza to its lucky recipients. You're going to need a keg of ranch to accompany a pizza this big. Happy gorging!
