Pizza lovers can now extend their pie obsession to the classroom by apprenticing in - you guessed it - pizza.

Teaming up with Pizza Hut, Manchester Metropolitan University in England is offering a course in which students learn how to make the perfect pizza pie.

Students will also learn how to run their own successful business - from health and safety to financial analysis.

"Over the next few years we will work hard to provide our apprentices and team members with the best training and development so that we can equip them with skills for life, not just for working in a restaurant," said Kathryn Austin, Pizza Hut's HR director.

Over 1,500 students will be enrolled in the next 5 years.
