Step right up and feast your eyes on these Great Feats of Pizza. These pies from far and wide will astonish you with their ingenuity, creativity, and deliciousness.
Presenting our next feat – a positively ginormous pie from NYC’s Champion Pizza measuring in with the square footage of a Manhattan studio and the weight of the Giants’ offensive line. This pizza with pepperoni, mac & cheese, and a cornicione of garlic knots confounds, astounds, and miraculously supports New York’s homeless all at once.
Read on, if you dare to face this benevolent beast.
Hakki Akdeniz went from being homeless in New York City to opening, owning, and operating Champion Pizza’s seven outposts across three NYC boroughs. Here, he sells some of the world’s most inventive slices and generously doles them out to those who cannot afford them.
The particular pie we present to you today is a colossus of carbs topped with pounds of pepperoni and mountains of mac & cheese. Naturally, a pie this gargantuan could only be contained and bordered by braids of delicious garlic knots.
Oh, and it doesn’t just feed 20, 30, or 40 mouths – it feeds an infinite number of people as proceeds from its sale are donated to the downtrodden.
There’s nothing Akdeniz can’t do, except decide on what to call his famous colossal pizza.
“Can I be honest with you?,” Akdeniz asked Slice. “I don’t have a name for it! Please, come up with a name and let me know.”
This was not an easy assignment, because this is not just a Great Feat of Pizza – Akdeniz has arguably accomplished the Greatest Feat of Pizza in world history! This is a pizza in a weight class of its own.
Ladies and gentlemen, are you ready to rumble with The Cheeserweight?
Measuring in at 85 x 49 feet and tipping the scales at roughly 200 pounds, The Cheeserweight shows mercy to no one, except for the downtrodden. For $1,000, you can go toe-to-toe with this cheese n’ mac attack and aid PCNYInTheStreets in their remarkable efforts to help the homeless.
That’s a bargain, given the work it takes to prepare this bread-bound titan for battle. After mixing boulders of dough, Champion Pizza’s expert trainers stretch it out to roughly the size of Deontay Wilder’s limo. Then, it takes at least four people to hoist The Cheeserweight into, and out of, the squared oven.
The Cheeserweight is more than just a novelty – this is a real contender for one of New York’s tastiest slices, daring you to step inside its garlicky ropes to find melty mac n’ cheese and luscious pepperoni. Even when purchased by-the-slice, this true triple threat still holds serious knockout power.
Take on The Cheeserweight, or tune-up for it with other fantastic pies, at New York City’s Champion pizza.
