Most college students would deem a pizza vending machine too good to be true; however, technology has graced the world with a vending machine that cooks you a fresh, not frozen, custom pizza in less than 3 minutes.
This dream machine goes by the name of ‘Let’s Pizza’. The machine makes every pizza from scratch, and doesn’t begin making it until you order it. How does a machine conquer such a feat in less than three minutes, you might ask? Here is how:
-The machine makes fresh dough from scratch by combining mineral water with a flour mixture.
-The machine then kneads the mixture into dough, and flattens it into a 10 inch pizza.
-The pizza is now topped with organic tomato sauce via a mechanical arm.
-This mechanical arm now tops the pizza with cheese and any additional desired toppings.
-Each machine has 3-4 topping choices, such as: pepperoni, bacon, mushroom, etc.
-The pizza is finally placed in a 700-degree infra-red oven. (There is even a viewing window so you can watch your pizza bake!)
-This ENTIRE process takes under 3 minutes, and each pizza is priced at $5-%6.
This phenomenal machine originated in Italy back in 2009; it slowly made its way through the U.K., and is beginning to integrate itself into the American vending tradition. The A1 concept company that manages ‘Let’s Pizza’ announced its plans to create a ‘Let’s Pizza’ headquarters here in the US in 2012. The plan was to have these vending locations in malls and universities around the nation, but none have breached the market yet.
