BROOKLYN (PIX11) – In Brooklyn lives the pizza box king.

Scott Wiener now holds the Guinness World Record for largest collection of pizza boxes.

It took Wiener nearly five years to collect 595 boxes from 45 different countries.

He says his obsession started in 2008 after seeing a beautiful pizza box in Israel.

And Wiener’s doing it all on the cheap — out of his 595-box collection he only had to pay for six of them.
