Mike Hill one planet pizza

What was your first job? Duty manager at Streatham Ice Rink.

What’s been your worst job interview? An interview for manager of Gillingham Ice Rink. I was feeling ill, had a fever and was violently sick on the way out!

What was the first music single you bought? ELO – Mr Blue Sky. And it was blue vinyl!

How do you describe your job to your mates? Best job in the world – selling pizzas with purpose.

What is the most rewarding part of your job? Hearing from non-vegans that they love our pizzas as much as traditional meat and dairy ones.

What is the least rewarding part? Filling in my expenses form. I dread doing that sort of paperwork.

What is your motto in life? What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger!

If you were allowed one dream perk, what would it be? An outside office, so I could be permanently outside in the sun and fresh air.

Do you have any phobias? Netflix series – I’m scared they’re just going to drag you into hours of late viewing!

If you could change one thing in grocery, what would it be? I would love to see the plant-based/vegan section in supermarkets grow as meat and dairy hopefully declines.

What luxury would you have on a desert island? My Minirig speaker, I love listening to bassy music.

What animal reflects your personality? Polar bear – love the cold and isolation.

What’s your favourite film and why? Lord of the Rings – The Two Towers. It contains Gandalf’s immortal quote: “All we have to do is decide what to do with the time that is given to us.”

What was the most embarrassing moment in your life? I once drove to a meeting with a client, only to realise I hadn’t packed my shoes to change into out of my open-toed beach sandals. The suit with sandals took some explaining!

Which celebrity would you most like to work with and why? Woody Harrelson – such a cool guy and does great work for animals and the planet.

What would your death row meal be? Vegetable garlic chilli with sag bajee and poppadoms and lime pickle (very precise Indian order).
