Don’t have enough pizza in your life? Then get ready for Let’s Pizza, a pizza vending machine that promises to deliver a piping hot pizza pie made from scratch in less than three minutes, coming to a shopping mall near you. The Los Angeles Times reports:
The brainchild of Italian entrepreneur Claudio Torghel, the machine will be distributed by A1 Concepts, based out of the Netherlands. It’s expected to hit our shores later this year, according to the industry website Pizza Marketplace. The company is expected to set up its U.S. headquarters in Atlanta.
What is remarkable about the new machine is that it truly makes pizzas to order, including kneading and rolling out the dough. (The above video says the leavening takes place in a blistering hot infra-red oven.) There are more than 200 toppings from which to choose. The machine can even accommodate a variety of dietary restrictions, such as those for vegetarian and Kosher diets.
A ten inch pizza will sell for about $6. This doesn’t sound bad at all. I am certainly willing to try it out, especially after reading the rave reviews coming from Europe.
