This Guy Made Over $25,000 as a Virtual Pizza Designer
Prepare to be jealous: One guy made more than $25,000 designing pizzas … on the Internet.
A mystery fellow, who goes by the subtle name “Pizza Master,” made the dough from Domino’s Pizza Mogul program, which allows users to create virtual pizzas that people can actually order, and then get a cut of the profits, Slate reports.
The program, which is run by Domino’s Pizza Enterprises (Australia’s master franchise of Domino’s Pizza), offers participants between 0.25 and 4.25 Australian dollars per pizza sold, or about $0.22 to $3.69.
Pizza Master has sold more than 12,000 pizzas to make roughly 32,000 Australian dollars, which comes out to $27,800. He’s also responsible for the campaign’s highest-earning pizza: the Mega Meat Lovers. This vegetarian-unfriendly creation includes bacon, ground beef, seasoned chicken, smoked ham, pepperoni, pulled pork, Italian sausage, mozzarella and barbecue sauce.
It’s easy to become a Pizza Mogul yourself — although we can’t guarantee the same results as Pizza Master. Go to the website or download the app and just drag toppings onto a pizza until you have the creation of your dreams. Kind of like a pizza video game, but with real money at stake.

Unfortunately, delivery for the crowd-sourced pizzas is only available in Australia for now, but users around the world still have the ability to create their perfect pies and earn cash for whatever sells.
Perhaps Pinterest should watch its back — sounds like there’s a new ultra-addictive time suck in town, and it pays.
