Jukka Salminen

Jukka “Slicemonger” Salminen is a Finland-based photographer, musician and pizza enthusiast who has worked with pizza for years, earning his spurs while working for Ooni, an international company manufacturing pizza ovens. He has organised pizza pop-up events and workshops where he teaches people how to make better pizza at home.

Jukka has also lent his name for the Slicemonger Pizza Kit, sold in supermarkets, and in his hometown of Tampere he has set up the Slicemonger Slice Shop, which sells New York-style pizza.

The social aspect of pizza-making is important for Jukka – he thinks cooking and eating together is simply the best thing there is.
