Pizza Job Is A Slice Of Heaven

The Bath Pizza Co. has a new menu in the works and needs someone to sample new recipes and pies. The professional pizza taster will help the chefs refine their menu before it goes live for their customers. So, this job goes beyond simply eating pizza. The lucky person must be able to provide specific and honest feedback about what he or she eats. This requires good communication skills and someone with experience with a wide variety of flavors.

In other words, if you stick to plain cheese pizza, this might not be the best fit. You need to be willing to take a walk on the wild side with your pizza choices!

How many any of these out-of-the-pizza-box creations have you enjoyed?

Of course, there’s the classic margherita pie!

Here’s a new twist on a veggie pizza. It includes pesto, chicken, ricotta cheese and practically a whole salad, including tomatoes!

How about this for a pizza combo: bacon, fresh spinach, fresh jalapeño, parmesan, crimini, artichoke hearts and creamy red sauce. Hungry yet?

Salmon on pizza? Why not?

One of the growing trends for pizza is adding fruit as a topping. Sure, pineapple has been around for a while. But, what about more exotic options. Say, fig for example? This pie has fig, and a blend of cheeses including parmesan, gorgonzola and brie! Fancy!

Pizza perks and catches

There must be a catch to this incredible opportunity, right? Well, maybe one or two.

First, the professional pizza taster only clocks in two hours each week. The employee can work with management on which day (Monday through Friday) to work. The company did not specifically list pay details on the job posting. However, the pizza place says its rates are “competitive with serious pizza perks.”

We’re thinking quite a bit of free pizza has got to be included in the deal, even beyond the job.


Oh, and there’s one more little thing to consider: The Bath Pizza Co. is based in Somerset, England. But, management didn’t want that to discourage people from overseas from applying!

It’s true—The Bath Pizza Co. plans to “pay for flights, train fares or fuel costs for the right candidate.” Unbelievable!
