Poems for Pizza Slam


Wanna win a pizza party for you and your friends? Thought so. Keep reading to find out how.


Let's be real — life is serious. Love is serious. And sometimes you just need a break from it all. Seriously. That's why for this slam we're asking you to write about something less hardcore and more lighthearted for a change.

Write an entertaining poem — something to make people laugh out loud.

They say laughter is the best medicine and we'd like to argue that pizza is a close second. Think about it: Is there anything more fun than a pizza party with your friends? Nah. So here's the deal: You write us a poem that makes us ROFL (literally) and we'll treat you to pizza. That's right. Your next pizza party is on us. Just 'cause you brightened up our day! Maybe tell us an embarrassing story, write a poetic parody, or show off your biting sarcasm and sick burns. We'll choose 5 winners to each receive a $25 Pizza Hut gift card — because there's no such thing as too much laughter (or pizza). Poems for pizza. It's that simple.

Psst. Need some inspo.? Check out our 5 Tips for Writing a Funny Poem.

Note: This is not a scholarship — there is no monetary reward. But tbh being crowned "The Pizza Poet" is just as cool.


  1.  You are 25 years of age or younger
  2. Add an original poem to Power Poetry by April 10, 2018. You'll need to register as a member of our community first.
