They’re taking the pizza! Italy’s favourite dish served in vending machines

An Italian institution has become the latest target of automation - pizzas are now available in vending machines!

Rome has a new dispenser which slides out freshly cooked pizzas in just three minutes, with customers of ‘Mr. Go Pizza’ given the choice of four different toppings costing from 4.50 to 6 euros.

The machine kneads and tops the dough and customers can watch the pizza cook behind a small glass window.

Reviews ranged from ‘acceptable if you’re in a hurry’ to outright horror with one of the first to try saying: “It’s OK but it’s not pizza.”
