40-foot pizza in Pueblo to cheer on Broncos

Bronco fever is riding high, with a playoff game against the Pittsburg Steelers on Sunday (2:30 p.m. local time).

People are getting ready in their own ways; at East Coast Pizza, in Pueblo, they're making a 40-foot pizza -- in the shape of a football, of course. Also, for dessert, they have a giant creampuff Lombardi Trophy.

The restaurant's staff started working on everything at 3 a.m. Saturday. They make 15 sections of pizza, and then put them all together.

"400 pounds of cheese on this pizza went on, and then another 400 pounds of dough, then there was about 48 gallons of sauce that went on their too; it's quite a bit, it's pretty heavy," says East Coast Pizza General Manager Dominic Mannino.

Everything should be finished at 2 p.m. Saturday.  They're giving the pizza away; collecting donations for the local Y.W.C.A.

You might be asking; why did they make it on Saturday instead of game day? Mannino says it's so they have time to watch the game tomorrow.

Mannino says if the Broncos make it to the Super Bowl, they'll try to make a pizza twice as big!
