Pizza from a vending machine

Pizza ready in 150 seconds

A company in Italy has created a vending machine for pizza.  It’s called Pizzaly, and it’s the result of a 10 million euro R&D investment.   The pizzas?

They are baked over a wood fire in Treviso, then flash-frozen.  The vending machine guy then loads 104 of these frozen 10-inch pizzas in the machine, where they stay frozen until someone buys one.  You can get the frozen pie to take home to bake yourself, or wait 2½ minutes and it will bake it for you in a mini-oven (not a microwave) built into the vending machine.

As of early June, 100 of these vending machines are in use in Italy.  Read more here or see it in action on YouTube.

For between £200 and £2,000, people can buy a cow that stands no taller than a large German shepherd dog, gives 16 pints of milk a day that can be drunk unpasteurised, keeps the grass “mown” and will be a family pet for years before ending up in the freezer.
