Best Job Ever? 10 Lucky People Will Make Up To $1,000 A Day To Create, Cook And Eat Pizzas

Ooni Dream Job Create Eat Pizza


Looking for an ultra-sweet side hustle? Well, if you are, it doesn’t get much better than this dream job involving pizza.

Outdoor cookware company Ooni (formerly Uuni) is hiring 10 people to create and taste pizzas using the company’s two different portable wood-fired pizza ovens, the Uuni 3 and the Uuni Pro.

Sounds pretty great, right? It gets better.

Not only do you get to come up with great pizza recipes, cook them in some sweet pizza ovens, and then get to eat them, Ooni will also pay you up to $1,000 a day to do it.

According to Travel + Leisure

Compensation will vary based on each person’s experience, with a daily rate that ranges from $300 to $1,000 for the most experienced candidates.

While that’s a big gap in terms of what you can earn, the Ooni team explained they have a method to determining compensation rates.

“We’ve set the base rate at $300, because we understand that developing one’s ability to make fantastic pizza takes time and energy to hone your craft; this rate would be appropriate for someone who is a passionate home cook who hasn’t worked professionally, and who understands how to make and stretch their own dough,” a representative from Ooni told Travel + Leisure.

Those who could make in the $1,000 range will be applicants with skills such as filming high quality video content and cooking demonstrations for large crowds.


Responsibilities will include a combination of recipe development, product testing, and even working as a brand ambassador for the brand by showcasing its products both through social media and at live events. Ooni will directly ship its ovens to each candidate, as well as covering expenses for any ingredients used for recipe testing.

Bonus (as if you needed one to do this job): there is no set time period for performing this job. Ooni is just looking for people who will “work at least two days a month at a schedule of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with a one-hour break for lunch in between.” That work, by the way, will be done in your own home. Another bonus.

Ooni is taking applications through Sunday, October 14th, so if you are interested (and who wouldn’t be?) submit a video to of up to one minute in length and no larger than 20 MB showcasing your wicked pizza skills and explaining why you’re the perfect person for the job.
