Pizza Hut workers rolled out the layers of dough alongside the vlogger and painted the sauce on before tossing on the toppings.

"To get revenge, I spent the past 18 years scheming how to make the world’s largest pizza and today it happened.

"No one out-pizzas the hut."

The vlogger shared the message alongside the photo of him with the record-breaking dish.

Airrack sold tickets to attend the pizza party alongside merchandise which boasts “Everybody gets a slice.”
