About the USPT

The Groupon U.S. Pizza Team was founded in 2000 with the goal of bringing competition and excitement to the pizza industry.  Since its formation, the Pizza Team has participated in an international event every year, most frequently at the World Pizza Championship in Parma, Italy.  Ranging from culinary whizzes to dough tossing acrobats, the Pizza Team renews the passion of those in the industry year after year.

Since its inception, it has been producing winners -a lot of winners- from repeat gold medalist Tony Gemignani, who competed with the team for years before venturing out on his own, to the squad that won the World Pizza Championship’s Team Acrobatics category in 2011 and our latest back-to-back silver medalist in acrobatics, Jamie Culliton in 2014 and 2015.

From CNN, Good Morning America and Live! With Regis and Kelly to an hour-long special on the Food Network, the Groupon U.S. Pizza team has enjoyed its time in the limelight. Our talented members serve as pizza-bearing goodwill ambassadors for our country and our industry and are often featured and quoted in the media for their leadership in the pizza industry.

Have you been told you have the best pizza around?  Do you WOW your customers with your dough tossing techniques? Maybe you can make pizzas or fold boxes faster than anyone?  We are looking for your skills to grow our team.
