Grewal, a Domino's franchise owner from the United Kingdom, won the 2012 World's Fastest Pizza Maker title, making three large pizzas in an impressive 43.9 seconds. That's making three pizzas in about 14 seconds each!

Grewal won $3,000
in prize money, a trophy and the coveted title of Fastest Pizza Maker
presented by Domino's president and CEO, Patrick Doyle.

The finalists represented Domino's Pizza stores from around the
world. They had to hand-stretch fresh dough, sauce and top three large
pizzas – one pepperoni, one mushroom and one cheese – as quickly as
possible.  While speed was important, it was only part of the equation
in determining the World's Fastest Pizza Maker. Quality was scrutinized
as two judges, highly qualified in Domino's standard pizza-making
practices, inspected the stretching of the dough, application of the
sauce and portioning of toppings during the competition. If the pizza
was not perfect, it was returned to the competitor who remade the entire
pizza while still being timed.
