Would you eat pizza from a vending machine?

June 14, 2012 

I have to admit, I am enamored by Coca-Cola Freestyle drink machines, even though I don't drink soda that often. A machine that lets you make any kind of soda you want? Awesome.

I try to eat healthy, but I've also consumed my share of vending machine candy bars and chips. But pizza from a vending machine? That's where I draw the line.

Let's Pizza is the world's first pizza vending machine and after taking Europe by storm (it was even popular in Italy) is coming to the U.S.

How does it work? From Pizza Marketplace.com:

The machine contains a specially developed bag of flour and a bag of mineral water. Every time you order a pizza, the machine will start making the dough, then shape it into a crust, and top it with organic tomato sauce. Next, one of the toppings is placed on top and the pizza is ready for the oven.

The 10-inch pie cooks in about 2 and a half minutes and costs around $6. No word yet on whether the machine can tell the different between New York Style pies or Chicago deep-dish.

The U.S. headquarters will be in Atlanta, so does that mean we might see a few machines like this in Georgia? Who knows?

Is there any food that you wouldn't eat from a vending machine?
