MIDDLEBURY, Ind. -- It's a world record to make your stomach growl!

Employees at Rullis Italian American Restaurant in Middlebury rolled up their sleeves and got elbow deep in flour and dough, hoping to break the record for world's largest calzone.

The current record belongs to another Hoosier restaurant - The Loveshack in West Lafayette has held the title since 2003.

Rulli's attempted to break it with a calzone weighing more than 140 pounds.

That includes 80 pounds of pizza dough, five gallons of pizza sauce, 25 pounds of pepperoni and 30 pounds of cheese.

Did they succeed?

We're still waiting on official word from Guinness World Records.

But no matter the outcome, the event was for a good cause.

Rulli's charged $5 for a slice of the giant calzone. Proceeds go to the Middlebury Boys and Girls Club.
