Pizza Man may have oozed cheese, but he certainly had America’s Got Talent viewers in awe as he flipped and served up tricks on stage.
The web developer by day – and pizza flipper by night – performer impressed judges, when he combined acrobatics with the well-known dish.
His tricks, from expanding the dough to quite literally juggling the pizza bases, received nothing short of loud applause from the audience.
We looked into his career journey, Instagram and background – because anyone who flips pizzas by night deserves a standing ovation.

Who is Pizza Man on AGT?
Pizza Man, aka Nick Diesslin, is a 29-year-old AGT performer.
He became a pizza flipper by night, by once putting too many toppings on, eating a little bit, and becoming Pizza Man!
Really though, he is a web developer for full-time work.
The comedy act has starred on several USA shows for his talents, from The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and CBS Weekend News!
Revisit Pizza Man’s AGT performance
Judge Simon Cowell admitted he thought he was a bit of an “idiot”, but Pizza Man did not disappoint with his food delivery.
Bringing Howie Mandel on the stage, he sat him down and gave him a pizza base, before he got to work with his talents.
Pizza Man then started expanding the base, before he switches it between his legs, around his head – and then starts juggling two of them!
Somehow, the pizza bases stay fully in tact throughout.
The audience erupted into applause and start to chant his name, before Terry Crews decides he is going to start eating carbohydrates again.
Howie said it was a waste of him to be on stage, before the other judges said it was a surprise. Simon even said he “loved this audition”.

Meet Nick Diesslin on Instagram
Pizza Man has been practising for his AGT audition since 2018!
Videos on his Instagram page show him flipping boxes in preparation. Oh, and he doesn’t just love pizza – but also bacon, cookies and cheese toasties.
He really has been making pizza for a while, as his first homemade pizza shot was shared in December 2017.
Several followers have been chatting to him about competitions in his photo comments since 2018, such as how they may have to go up against him.
Nick doesn’t just do pizza tricks, but he grows plants, too!
His public journey with making pizzas seems to have started in January 2021, ahead of his AGT performance.
