Pizza Chefs Salaries Report

Posted on Wednesday, June 16, 2021 by Alan Pizzaiolo TribeNo comments

We have analysed 80 live jobs on PizzaioloTribe.com and Indeed and collated this information.

Things to consider:

  1. When a range was given we used the middle point. For instance if the job ad stated from £11/h to £13/h, we used £12/h
  2. The jobs we used were live as at June 15 and no older than 2 weeks
  3. For London we included zone 1 to 6
  4. We divided the positions into Head Pizza Chef and Pizza Chef/Pizzaiolo. We assumed that when companies advertise for a Head Pizza Chef they are looking for an individual that can manage a team and has 3 years plus experience. The term Pizza Chef/Pizzaiolo unfortunately is used a bit more liberally and can cover a range or roles with different amount of experience
  5. Although in many cases, Median and Mean were really close, we used the median to give you the fairest figures. (What’s the “median” : “The median is the middle number in a sorted, ascending or descending, list of numbers and can be more descriptive of that data set than the average. The median is sometimes used as opposed to the mean when there are outliers in the sequence that might skew the average of the value”.
  6. Some jobs state a hourly salary and some an yearly one. We gave the 2 figures separately but also worked out the equivalent hourly rate, for annual salaries, by dividing the yearly salary by 2340 (45 hours a week, multiplied by 52 weeks)
  7. There were no ads for Head Pizza Chefs in London

To draw some conclusions, as an employer it will be really difficult to find good pizza chefs for under £12/h. The highest hourly rate we saw advertised was £15/h. We believe that in the short term salaries will keep rising, they will then reach a plateau (possibly in 6 month to a year) and then employers will find alternative ways to cover vacant positions, be it through automation, recruiting less experienced individuals or maybe just reducing opening hours and/or menus.
