Coming Soon To A Theme Park Near You - A Pizza Vending Machine!

Theme parks can be a lot of fun except for one thing - The long lines. Though the ones for rides can be avoided with a Fast Pass, there is no easy fix when trying to get a bite to eat. Now, there may finally be a solution coming our way - A vending machine that dispenses delicious pizza, in a speedy quick three minutes!

And if your are thinking re-heated pies, think again. The crimson-colored 'Let's Pizza' machine make each pie to order - Rolling the dough, sprinkling the desired toppings and baking it in a infra-red oven, all while the customer is watching. The best part is that this custom-made 10-inch pizza costs a mere $6 USD (at least in Europe).

And, while customers don't have all the options they would find in a pizzeria, they do have at least four pre-set topping menus to choose from. Given that these can be customized right down to the dough (gluten free anyone?), there is likely to be something, for everyone.

The brainchild of Italian entrepreneur Claudio Torghele, the vending machines were first introduced in Italy in 2009, amidst a lot of skepticism. This is after all the birthplace of the pie and one that believes that the only good pizza is one made from hand-stretched dough (that has been fermented for at least 12 hours), topped with fresh ingredients and baked in a wood-fired oven.

But Claudio was convinced that 'Let's Pizza' would appeal to the younger generation especially kids, who would enjoy watching their favorite treat being cooked inside this magical machine. Turns out, he was right - Over the last  two years 'Let's Pizza' has become wildly popular not only in Italy, but other European countries as well. Now, the Italian businessman has set his eyes on the biggest take-out pizza market in the world - America!

The first 'Let's Pizza' machines are scheduled to make their appearance this summer, at a yet to be disclosed theme park in Florida. If successful, the Claudio is hoping to franchise them to other theme parks and even malls and theaters. Sounds delizioso to us!

            That would be really good to have at home. "Come on! We have to go!" "uh but I haven't had dinner yet!" "Just get some from the pizza vending machine!" Imagine that...
