UK & Ireland's Fastest Pizzamaker Beats the Clock to Win 2008 Award

Pali, who has been a Domino’s Pizza team member for 17 years, prepared individual large (13.5”) pepperoni, mushroom and cheese pizzas (in that order) in a staggering 56.50 seconds – outstripping his closest rival by 8.72 seconds.

With two eagle-eyed master judges on hand to oversee proceedings, the quality of each contestant’s work proved every bit as important as speed. Strict competition rules require every dough base to be free from holes, while the appropriate toppings must be evenly distributed – making for a mouth-watering treat.

Pali, who was presented with the prestigious award, could now go on to compete in the final of the World’s Fastest Pizza Maker, in the United States later this year. The event will see the fastest qualifiers from around the world go head-to-head.

“It’s a true honour to be crowned the Fastest Pizza Maker in the United Kingdom!,” says Pali. “All Domino’s team members are well accustomed to speedy-pizza making, so we’re certainly not short of practice – but I’m really delighted to have gone one step further, and hope to fly the flag for the UK at the world final.”
