TEL AVIV—Citizens of conflict-mired Israel were given a welcome respite from their troubles on Monday as chefs in Tel Aviv cooked a giant pizza they hope will break a world record for length.

According to Channel News Asia, the event drew hundreds of members of Herzliya locals together to make the 100-meter (109.4 yards) pie.

The process of blending the 150 kilos (330.7 pounds) of dough, 50 liters (13.21 gallons) of tomato sauce, 60 kilos (132.3 pounds) of green olives and 80 kilos (176.4 pounds) of mozzarella took 25 cooks 30 hours.

A blowtorch was used to cook the toppings after the dough was cooked in a portable oven.

According to the report, the world's longest pizza, if approved by the Guinness Book of Records, will go alongside the world's largest round pizza, which measured 37.4 meters in diameter (122.7 feet in diameter) in South Africa.
