The breeds from the mastiff family generally have the widest and heaviest heads. Some of these breeds:
    English Mastiff
    St. Bernard
    Great Dane
    English Bulldog
    American Bulldog
    Bull Mastiff
    Pit Bull (descended from the original bulldog crossed with terriers)
    Dogues de Bordeaux
    Neapolitan Mastiff
    Pug

For sheer body size among all breeds of dog, The English Mastiff holds the record for weight, the Great Dane for height. I would think these would also correlate with head size.

The modern English bulldog has such a large head relative to body size that cesarean sections are often required to deliver puppies.

Hope this helps, at least as a starting point for further searches. For more ideas try looking at the AKC standards (and pictures) for various breeds here.

Some pit bull breeders breed for massive head size. Angus reminds me of the time I went with my friend to pick up a pup, the dad was half pit bull and half boxer, the mom was pure pit. We came to the owner's house and the first thing we saw was the dad playing with a cinder block, carrying it around in his jaws and tossing it around - very impressive.
