Domino’s awarded its 2024 World's Fastest Pizza Maker title to a new champion, Joana Mendes, among top competitors from across the globe at Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas on May 8, 2024. Joana, an assistant manager at Domino’s in Ipswich, England, is the first woman to win the competition, making three large pizzas in a record-breaking 39.2 seconds! She started working for Domino’s as a customer service representative in 2015. Joana currently works for Domino’s Pizza Group (DPG) – Domino’s master franchise in the United Kingdom.

“This title means everything to me,” said Joana. “For the past two years I have been training very hard and became the first female to win the United Kingdom’s Fastest Pizza Maker competition. From there, my goal was to take it to the next level and be the World’s Fastest Pizza Maker. I had the best people by my side to show me the process and have now achieved one of the biggest goals in my life.”
