Pass the Pepto and give big props to Joey Chestnut, who just smashed the world record for pizza eating.The 24-year-old Chestnut was downing slices fast and furious at the pre-Columbus Day event in Times Square Sunday.

Chestnut, who defended his hot dog eating world record on July 4th, managed to eat an astounding 45 slices in 10 minutes.

Chestnut credits the championship to folding slices so that he tastes cheese, and not crust, making them easier to swallow.
