Domino's worker takes just 27 seconds to bake a fresh pizza, making him the fastest pizza maker in Europe after for the third consecutive year.
Three-time-winner of Domino's Fastest Pizza Maker in Europe, Zagros Jaff who has been with Domino's for over 10 years, competed alongside best pizza chefs from across the continent to bag the title. Jaff is popular for his ability to hand-craft a fresh pizza in just 27 seconds - which equates to 133 pizzas in an hour.
According to reports in, contestants had to make three large 13-inch pizzas, each topped with 40 slices of pepperoni, 142g of mushrooms, 198g of diced cheese and a serving of Domino's signature tomato pizza sauce. Besides the time limit for making pizza, the competition requires that all pizzas meet the highest standards.

The title doesn't come easy as contestants are penalised by 15 seconds per error like if a pepperoni slice is in the wrong place or the fresh dough has not been stretched to the right size.

"I've been making Domino's pizzas for over 10 years, and to win this title once again makes me really proud. Customers don't always realise the skill that goes into making a Domino's pizza, from hand-stretching the fresh dough and leveling the sauce with my own personal spoodle, to perfectly placing the fresh toppings," Jaff said.
Jaff not only bagged the title three times but been rewarded with a very special trophy - a solid gold cast of his magical pizza-making hands inspired by the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The trophy will be on display at Domino's Portsmouth Fratto branch where Jaff trained and perfected his skills for over 10 years.
