New York, June 3 : Sal Carbone, from Brooklyn has broken his own record by gobbling down 15 slices and one bite of pizza at a contest.
Carbone, from Bar Ridge, set the bar last year after eating 15 pizza slices in the contest at Rocco's Pizzeria, which raises money for the child welfare organization MercyFirst.
"It started out as a friendly bet with my friends Danny and Rocco, but they knew the way I could eat. So I won it last year with 15 slices," New York Daily News quoted Carbone, as saying.
"This year I beat my record, 15 slices and one bite," he added.
The runner up William Millender was able to eat about 12-1/4 slices.
