I read an article saying:
I delivered as many as two hundred pizzas!
Is this correct? What does it mean, as many as two? Is is similar to about, maximum, or almost?

This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
The sentence you saw in the article is correct. It means: I am surprised that I delivered such a big number of pizzas.
It isn't similar to about (= approximately, give or take a few items) or almost (= nearly) or maximum (= the most possible/allowed).
