Pizza lovers: This gig's for you

The search is on for Pizza Hut's No. 1 fan


Instead of trying to slim down to fit into some appealing swimwear this summer, spend time doing something more physically pleasing: eating pizza.

Pizza Hut announced last week a nationwide search for its No. 1 fan. 

"We have some of the most passionate pizza fans in the world," Bill Ogle, Pizza Hut chief marketing officer, said in a release. "We think a true pizza lover makes the best spokesperson for Pizza Hut."

To enter the America's Favorite Pizza Fan contest, pizza enthusiasts must create a video clip showing how much they're devoted to Pizza Hut pizza and why they should earn the title of Honorary Vice President of Pizza. 

The more creative, the better. Contestants are encouraged to be creative in producing interesting video clips showing their devotion to the pizza chain. The VP of Pizza will earn a $25,000 salary, a three-month lease on a company car, pizza for a year and the opportunity to travel the country and make appearances promoting Pizza Hut. 

The winner will be chosen based on audience approval. Each contestant will submit their video on YouTube at From there, three finalists will be selected and their videos will be visible on the Pizza Hut Web site, where the winner will be decided by a vote. Submissions will be taken until March 18; voting runs from April 19 to April 22. 

Two first-prize winners will win a pizza party for 100 guest's and 25 runner-up winners will be able to eat pizza for free for a month.
