Pizza Tossing Record Broken in Shanghai

Over 500 people made pizza by tossing the dough in the air on Wednesday and they broke a Guinness world record.

The record-breaking attempt was held in Shanghai and 525 people took part.

Fourteen were disqualified and 511 broke the record.

That bested the record by Papa John's Staff in London who tossed 388 pizzas in June.

The dough must be a certain size and participants must keep tossing it for at least a minute.

Most of the participants in Shanghai were breast cancer patients and the event was organized to raise awareness of breast cancer.

The pizzas were sold and all the proceeds were donated to a cancer charity.
