Pizza Hut has broken a world record by sending a pizza up Mount Kilimanjaro.

The pizza company, which has previously delivered to the White House and the International Space Station, decided to see if they could get a pizza to the top of the tallest peak in Africa.

The delivery has set the Guinness World Records title for the highest altitude pizza delivery on land at a height of 19,341 feet. (5,895m)

The special delivery was carried out by a group of five mountaineers in order to celebrate the fact Pizza Hut has set up shop in its 100th country.

It took four days to transport the pizza – which was kept warm by a battery-powered heater.

Mount Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano in Tanzania. It is the highest mountain in Africa, and rises approximately 4,877 metres (16,001 ft) from its base to 5,895 metres (19,341 ft) above sea level.
