Would you order pizza from a vending machine?
We’re no strangers to food innovations and restaurant technology. Just a couple of months back, our team visited Asia for an “eating mission” and witnessed a restaurant using a very cool robotic wok that was used to cook perfect stir-fry dishes with minimal effort. We’re also no strangers to what makes a great pizza, so when we caught wind of a new pizza vending machine, we just had to find out more.
So, you might be thinking to yourself that a pizza vending machine doesn’t sound too novel — after all, there are already vending machines for sandwiches and the like. But this particular vending machine is not spitting out premade frozen pizzas and merely heating them up before dispensing your meal; it’s actually creating the pizza from scratch (flour, dough, water, yeast, cheese) and even baking it, delivering it you piping hot. Amazingly, this process takes just 3 minutes and you can choose from pizza varieties such as margherita, salame, and prosciutto for example. See the video below for more details about the pizza vending machine from A1 Concepts, Let’s Pizza:
As noted in the video, the machine is the first of its kind to be “the only machine in the world capable of making healthy and genuine pizzas using entirely fresh ingredients” highly emphasizing its human-free environment, high hygiene and freshness factors (e.g. single dose and vacuumed-packed toppings, no ingredients are frozen).
It still begs the questions: 1) would you try this? and 2) will the taste compare to your favorite pizza restaurant? The convenience and relatively inexpensive suggested retail price of just $5.95 for a freshly made 10.5″ pizza may prove that Let’s Pizza might very well be a hit in the U.S. We’ll be excited to find out.
