  • - All this cheese just for one pizza slice.
  • Ooh, my, my, look at that.
  • I'm gonna be here for awhile.
  • We are going for one slice the size
  • of four entire pizzas.
  • Hello, my name is Alvin.
  • I am a Tasty producer, and I love making giant crazy food.
  • So I got a message from my friend, Noah.
  • And this guy is a huge pizza guy.
  • And he goes, "Hey, I saw your giant burger video.
  • "Ima be in town tomorrow.
  • "Can I request a giant pizza?"
  • And the thing is, Noah and I used to go to this pizza place
  • with slices literally as large as your head.
  • And Noah is the only guy that I've ever seen
  • finish two of them.
  • This is starting to sound pretty exciting.
  • So I'm like, "Ooh, okay, how big?"
  • "Big big, like, dumb big."
  • That's pretty big.
  • I've also been getting a lot of requests
  • to make a giant pizza, so I think I know
  • what I'm gonna make today.
  • I'm like, "All right, I got you."
  • What's up, dude?
  • - Yo, how's it going, man?
  • - I'm good, how 'bout you?
  • Good to see you.
  • - I just got you my favorite pizza.
  • I want you to try it.
  • - Ooh, this looks really good.
  • What do you like so much about this slice of pizza?
  • - Dude, well, first, it's all about the crust.
  • Has to be chewy, not too thick, not too thin, perfect.
  • And the sauce.
  • A little sweet, little salty, really, really smooth,
  • and it has to really taste like tomatoes.
  • Toppings.
  • Cheese, mozzarella, gotta go with pepperoni.
  • It's just a classic.
  • When all those things come together,
  • you get this beautiful slice of pepperoni pizza.
  • Oh.
  • - I'm gonna see if I can make you a giant version of this.
  • So I'm gonna get to work, and I'll see you in a bit, okay?
  • - All right, man.
  • - [Alvin] All right, see you, dude.
  • - Cheers.
  • - Okay, let's make this pizza.
  • First thing we gotta do, we gotta make the pizza dough.
  • Start with some warm water, some sugar,
  • gonna add yeast to this little bad boy.
  • Let the yeast grow 'cause yeast doesn't grow,
  • dough won't grow.
  • This recipe is actually a Tasty 101 pizza recipe
  • by Claire and Brenda.
  • I've never made pizza before.
  • Oh, this recipe doesn't look too bad.
  • Seven cups of,
  • seven cups of flour.
  • Guys, I take everything back.
  • Two, three, four.
  • Hope I have enough flour.
  • Seven, this is a lot of flour.
  • And we got some salt, olive oil.
  • And we're gonna pour in this yeast mixture.
  • Okay, on to the mixer.
  • Actually, the recipe says to do it by hand.
  • I am one lazy person.
  • So, Claire and Brenda, if you're watching
  • and I mess up your recipe, I am so sorry.
  • Oh, it's not turning on.
  • Please turn on.
  • What the heck?
  • (mixer whirring) Oh, there it is.
  • All right, we're back in business.
  • This is gonna go for 10 minutes,
  • and then we're gonna see how it is,
  • and we're gonna make the rest of it.
  • Dough's actually looking really good.
  • I'm just watching this stand mixer.
  • It is a-doing a-work right now.
  • I just think if I had to do this by hand,
  • I might be here for awhile.
  • Okay, I'm gonna give you a little break, okay, bud?
  • So I think it's some nice dough.
  • You still have to work the dough a little bit
  • because even though it's really mixed together,
  • it needs to be in a really nice circle shape.
  • So, all right, let's get some flour.
  • Oh, god, I missed, I totally missed.
  • Get this dough all out over here.
  • Ooh, this feels so nice.
  • Yo, this is like a soft pillow.
  • I think I did a really good job.
  • This entire batch of dough is supposed to be enough dough
  • for four total pizzas.
  • There's usually six to eight slices
  • in a whole pizza, right?
  • We're not doing that.
  • We are going for one slice that is the size
  • of four entire pizzas.
  • (smacking)
  • I'm gonna put this in the bowl.
  • Well, I think he deserves a little break,
  • so I'll let you rest.
  • While my dough takes a well-deserved nap,
  • I'm gonna make this tomato sauce.
  • I'm gonna use San Marzano tomatoes
  • because these are really, really good tomatoes.
  • These are kinda like the Ferrari of canned tomatoes.
  • This recipe makes enough sauce
  • for about two or three pizzas,
  • but I'm just gonna double it just in case
  • 'cause who knows?
  • Whew, well, that's some nice tomatoes.
  • Look at how smooth and peeled they are.
  • Oh my, sorry, I gotta crush through the. (laughs)
  • Some sugar, onion and garlic powder, oregano,
  • like Gordon Ramsay says.
  • Some salt, some pepper.
  • Crack-a-lackin.
  • Starting to bubble already.
  • Okay, let's chop this basil.
  • For the basil, you gotta roll it up real good.
  • The tighter it is, the better.
  • Smells like if my grandma was actually Italian
  • and not Chinese.
  • There are still a lot of chunks in here.
  • I'm gonna use one of my favorite toys.
  • This is an immersion blender.
  • This thing turns all your chunky problems
  • into one-spoon solution.
  • So here we go.
  • Yes, there we go.
  • That's what I like to see.
  • See that?
  • Oh, god, I just got splattered.
  • It was hot, whew.
  • That's better.
  • That looks pretty good.
  • Let's thicken a bit.
  • Texture is great.
  • Okay, sauce is done.
  • Let's talk cheese.
  • Usually, in pizza, they use shredded mozzarella,
  • basically kinda like this.
  • Could use this.
  • It's good.
  • Is that gonna be too easy?
  • Little bit.
  • I wanna make, essentially, giant cheese shreds.
  • How do you do that?
  • I'm not sure, but I have an idea.
  • Mozzarella blocks.
  • If you use this vegetable peeler, and to peel
  • giant cheese shreds off this.
  • Whoa.
  • That actually kinda worked.
  • That's not bad.
  • That's a cheese shred, right?
  • That's, like, a giant cheese shred.
  • Man, I love cheese.
  • This is a big cheese shred.
  • Little cheese shred.
  • We're just gonna shred this cheese normally.
  • Hold up.
  • Whew, that's what I'm talking about.
  • Whoa, wait, that's some,
  • that's some big, giant cheese shreds.
  • All right, looks like our plan
  • was not so terrible after all.
  • Look at all that great cheese shred.
  • All this cheese is for one pizza slice.
  • Just your everyday pepperoni.
  • But, you guys actually know where pepperoni comes from?
  • Basically, you take a giant sausage, and you cut it up.
  • I got these bad boys.
  • These are some big pepperonis.
  • You know I'm gonna be using these.
  • Why be normal when you can be like that?
  • Okay, let's see how my dough's looking.
  • (laughs)
  • This guy grew so much.
  • Let's take a look at you.
  • Ooh, my, my.
  • Look at that, it's so perfect.
  • Ooh, gotta tuck all those bad parts underneath.
  • Kinda like when you're cleaning out your room,
  • shove everything that doesn't look good under the bed.
  • Whew, he does need to rest one last time.
  • Put a little blanket on my precious dough ball.
  • We'll see you in an hour, okay?
  • Bye-bye.
  • So to make this giant slice, I'm actually gonna make
  • a slice the size of the biggest tray I could find
  • that we have that actually fits in the oven.
  • Let's see how this goes.
  • Whew, am I doing this right?
  • How do the professionals do it?
  • Oh, there we go.
  • That's the stretch I'm talking about.
  • Thanks, gravity, you're the MVP.
  • Ope, not bad for a first time.
  • I'm gonna be here for awhile.
  • Nope, start shaping it into its final form.
  • It's been 25 years.
  • We now have AirPods three.
  • Okay, we're almost there.
  • I'm gonna be able to play the piano so hard.
  • Gonna walk into a massage parlor,
  • and they're gonna be but like,
  • hey, what kind of experience you got?
  • I'll just pull up this YouTube video.
  • You gotta show the dough who's boss.
  • That's right.
  • Ow, that kinda hurt.
  • Maybe a rolling pin would be a better idea.
  • Progress check.
  • Seems long enough.
  • Oh, it seems wide enough.
  • Next challenge is to get this entire thing
  • onto this tray.
  • A little bit of semolina.
  • Oh, come on.
  • Oh, ha.
  • Okay, not a very clean landing.
  • The edges are getting a little squished.
  • I'll probably just trim them off
  • and eat them as scraps 'cause I'm getting hungry
  • at this point.
  • This tray is about two and a half feet long.
  • I did some math using Pythagorean's theorem.
  • A squared plus b squared equals c squared.
  • And this comes out to be something along the lines
  • of three feet.
  • Because this pizza is so big,
  • I wanna actually pre-bake the dough.
  • I'm scared that if I put all the sauce and toppings
  • on right now, in the middle
  • of it's gonna be very, very soggy.
  • 500 degrees for about five minutes.
  • Okay, here's the dough that is pre-baked.
  • Let's get toppings.
  • We have giant mozzarella cheese shreds,
  • homemade tomato sauce, and giant pepperonis.
  • First, we gotta do the sauce.
  • I like that.
  • Don't get lost in the sauce, kids.
  • I might've made too much tomato sauce.
  • That's okay, I'll just make, like, 20 pizzas later.
  • Time for the cheese.
  • Gonna make it rain.
  • Oh, wait, it's 2019.
  • We're making it precipitate.
  • Whew.
  • Feel like those rappers, and they're just tossing
  • $100 bills in the air.
  • That's who I am right now, except I'm tossing cheese.
  • When do I know when to stop?
  • Man, this is fun.
  • Okay, I officially ran out of cheese.
  • Big pepperoni time.
  • Right here.
  • Kinda feel like Oprah.
  • You get a pepperoni, and you get a pepperoni,
  • and I get a pepperoni.
  • One,
  • two.
  • I'm dishing out them stacks.
  • Final one.
  • Oh, would you look at that?
  • There was one left over.
  • This is a thing of beauty.
  • We have 18 giant pepperoni slices.
  • This is a serving size for one person
  • if you were not me.
  • This is enough for a huge party of, like, 20 people.
  • This is gonna go in the oven, 500 degrees
  • for, I wanna say, like, 20 minutes.
  • And then, we're gonna go eat with Noah after that.
  • Oh-oh, this is, (laughing)
  • this is really heavy.
  • (adventurous music)
  • Hey, Noah.
  • - [Noah] Yeah?
  • - You want your pizza?
  • All right, Noah, this is the size of one standard pizza.
  • Is that right?
  • - Yeah, looks right.
  • - All right, close your eyes.
  • On the count of three.
  • One,
  • two,
  • three.
  • Open your eyes, Noah.
  • - Oh my god, Alvin, oh my, wow.
  • That's a big guy.
  • - [Alvin] Do you like it?
  • - [Noah] Yeah, man, dude, wow.
  • - Look at this pizza, dude.
  • This is a little bigger than your normal pizza.
  • So I got some leftover ingredients,
  • so I made myself a pizza too. - [Noah] Wow, wow.
  • - Let's just get right in.
  • - All right, let's go for it.
  • - All right, cheers, dude.
  • - Cheers. - Cheers.
  • Oh, this is pretty good.
  • - This is awesome.
  • You did a really great job.
  • The sauce, the pepperoni,
  • you even got the cheese just right.
  • - Think you can finish it?
  • You used to finish two of those big slices
  • back in the day.
  • - It'll take me a little time,
  • but I think we can-- - [Alvin] Take a little time?
  • - Yeah, we could use some help
  • - I don't want any of this to go to waste.
  • I asked a couple of friends.
  • I just need to cut off the big part,
  • and then we can go and share the rest.
  • All right, let's go eat some pizza, guys.
  • Today was super fun.
  • Made a giant pizza.
  • I think at the end of it all, it came out to be,
  • like, three feet, which is really long.
  • Just to see the love that people have for pizza
  • is just really awesome.
  • And Noah seemed pretty happy about it, too,
  • so that means I'm happy.
  • And the thing is, I love making these crazy things.
  • So if you have a food that you absolutely love,
  • hit me up.
  • Leave a comment, and send me a DM.
  • Let me know what your favorite food is,
  • and I will do my very best to try and make
  • a big version of that for you.
  • Until next time, peace.
  • (lighthearted music)
