Pizza Vending Machines To Hit the U.S.

10.5 inches of thin-crust goodness in 2.5 minutes flat

After meeting great success in Europe and especially Italy, Netherlands-based distributor A1 Concepts is bringing their Let’s Pizza pizza vending machine across the Atlantic where they expect to find a very hungry American market.

Watch in the concept video below as the machine, created by Italian Claudio Torghei, turns out a pie from scratch in 2.5 minutes flat.

Not only does the video feature a choice of four different topping combinations and an infared oven, but above all, the spokeswoman emphasizes the sanitary triumphs of the machine, in which pizza is created “without being touched by any hands and in a human-free environment,” thus guaranteeing “total hygiene.”

According to A1 Concepts’ CEO Ronald Rammers, we can expect to find machines in U.S. malls, airports, supermarkets, universities, gas stations and even hospitals. [pizza marketplace]

The pizza, whose crust of flour and water (no yeast) is mixed seconds before baking, may not be deep dish, but your pockets need not be deep either – with a suggested retail price of $5.95 for a 10.5 inch pizza, [Slice Marketplace] Let’s Pizza machines will offer an affordable (not to mention, inhumanly quick) option for hungry families and Lunchables nostalgics alike.
