Co-owners Amber and Paul Rouse reveal how the world's largest pizza is made — and delivered! — at Moontower Pizza Bar in Burleson, TX.

The world's largest pizza measures over 8 feet long and 32 inches wide. It uses 25 pounds of dough, about 7 cups of sauce, 10 pounds of mozzarella and approximately 288 pepperonis.

"We can even deliver it to your house. We had a custom trailer built just so we can deliver it hot," Amber says.

Highest Elevation Restaurant

Want to dine at 12,500 feet? Il Rifugio at Snowplume, the restaurant with the highest elevation in North America, is located at the summit of Arapahoe Basin in Summit County, CO.

"The only way to get there is by taking two lift rides," says communications manager Katherine Fuller. And the only way to get back down is with a pair of skis!

"The building is entirely solar powered. The panels on the roof make up the highest solar array in North America," Katherine says. "There's also no running water up here, and water has to be brought up by snowcap once a week."

Lowest Elevation Restaurant

The lowest restaurant bar in the Western Hemisphere is the Ski Inn in Niland, CA, located 230 feet below sea level.

"Even Anthony Bourdain came in and had a patty melt with us," owner Sonia Herbert says. "We always have fun here in Bombay Beach, by the beautiful salt and sea."
