Ooni Pizza Ovens is on the hunt for a global team of passionate and highly skilled pizza instructors to star in their Pizza Mastery Program.

The program is an educational portal that’s gearing up to be the world’s greatest online resource for those 'pursuing mastery of the pizza arts'.

In 2018, Ooni Pizza Ovens launched its search for pizza taste testers and hired multiple pizza lovers for a number of pizza taste tester roles.

These roles included a unique mix of recipe development, product testing and brand ambassadorship and gave applicants the opportunity to get paid to eat pizza.

The launch of Ooni’s Pizza Mastery Program aims to take this pizza taste tester role further, by offering paid freelance positions to a select number of confident pizza instructors.

The instructors will help educate pizza fans around the world whether they’re beginners to the pizza game, or seasoned pizza pros who are seeking new techniques and knowledge.

The successful pizza-makers will help design the content and present their top lessons on camera to help the world learn how to create truly great pizzas.

Ooni Pizza Ovens will pay the pizza instructors a freelance day rate and the role can be flexible in working around applicant’s other obligations.

Kristian Tapaninaho, Ooni CEO and founder, said: “We are always on the hunt for passionate pizza people with excellent knowledge of the craft of pizza making to inspire our Ooni family.

"You don’t have to be a professional pizzaiolo to apply to be a Pizza Instructor, but you do have to love pizza and be great at teaching and sharing your tips.

Darina Garland, Ooni co-founder and chief experience officer added: "We are so excited to launch our Pizza Mastery Program.

"There are so many ways to make great pizza at home and even true pizza masters know that when it comes to honing the craft of pizza-making, there’s always something new you can learn.

"If anyone is looking to take their infectious love of pizza to the next level and help us guide the Ooni community on their pizza-making journeys, then this is the perfect opportunity for them."
