Hungry, hungry San Antonians will get a chance to watch as Chef Kurt Oefinger of Dirt Road Cookers, based in Hondo, tries for the record of largest commercially-available pizza in front of the Alamo on Saturday, August 3. Prep begins at 10 a.m. and the public will enjoy free slices at noon once the pizza is ready.

A team of eight will use one one of Oefinger's massive custom-made, wood-fired pizza oven to create the pizza using 40 pounds of dough, 10 pounds of sauce, 24 pounds of cheese and 8 pounds of pepperoni in hopes of producing an 8-foot-long pie.

The event is hosted by  Guinness World Records Museum in San Antonio who will have a rep on-hand to verify the record.
