A pizza vending machine that can make the classic dish from scratch in three minutes has been launched in Italy.
The vending machine has clear plastic windows to allow customers to see the ingredients being mixed and cooked. It can produce a piping hot pizza for about $7.
The machine, called “Let's Pizza,” doesn’t just warm up a pre-cooked or frozen pizza. It whips up flour and water into a doughy paste, squashes it into a 12-inch-wide disc, smears it with tomato sauce and then offers a choice of four toppings – margherita, ham, bacon or vegetables. It’s then cooked in front of the customer's eyes and served in a cardboard box.
