A Company Will Pay Someone From Every State to Eat Pizza for a Year

A company is looking to pay someone in every state to eat pizza for an entire year.

The app, Slice, is looking for a team of pizza lovers to join its P.I.E. Society—which stands for Promotion of Independents Everywhere—as their state's Resident Head of Pizza.

The foodies will receive $1,300 over the course of 12 months to eat cheese and pepperoni to their heart's content, while they'll even get an extra $500 on top to help with travel expenses.

Slice works with thousands of independent pizzerias across the country, and the head of pizza will need to bring the food, but also the venues to life.

Alongside the free pizza, you'll also receive a content creation kit to document their food love story, including a ring light and phone tripod valued at up to $2,000.

Describing their ideal candidate, Slice said: "It was love at first bite and you've never looked back. You don't discriminate—you love pizzas of all sizes, shapes, and backgrounds!. You want to shout about your love of pizza from the rooftops. Maybe you were guest of honor at your delivery guy's wedding. You're passionate about your community and supporting small businesses. You have a passion for creating content and are excited to tell the stories of independent pizzerias."

The main responsibilities are to "eat pizza" by visiting a new pizza joint every week, and "capture content that shares the unique story behind the pizza."

But fear not if you're feeling lazy one weekend, and you can also order pizza if leaving your sofa is just too much effort.

You'll need at least 10 years' experience eating pizza, know how to microwave leftovers and understand which pizza toppings lend themselves well to being folded.

But, crucially the job is about championing independent eateries, as enshrined in their satirical "pizza pledge," which says: "I swear to support independent pizzerias, from my go-to's and neighborhood favorites to shops just starting out.

"I swear to try every pie to discover where has the crispiest crust, the most inventive toppings, and the perfect cheese to sauce ratio. I swear to spread the word in my state and beyond. And I swear never, ever to use a delivery app again. For the love of independents."

Applications open today, and will close on July 30, with the winners announced on August 13.

The winners will also receive a pile of Slice "swag" alongside the pizza money, which will be awarded as 52 weekly instalments of $25 via credit on the app. While the travel fund will be distributed via four $125 gift cards.

The positions are open to anyone over the age of 21 in all 50 states, and the district of Columbia. To apply click here.
