Pizza in the news

Two products named Let's Pizza have appeared in the marketplace in recent weeks. One is a vending machine that makes pizza from scratch in three minutes. The other is an iPhone application that allows the user to make a virtual pizza and eat a virtual slice. (Yum) The vending machine is kind of cool, but WTF would anyone want to make a virtual pizza on an iPhone?

In Italy, a Vending Machine Even Makes the Pizza - NYTimes.com



Rome, Italy - Movenda, "The Mobile Solutions Company", will present at Mobile World Congress 2009 (16-19th Feb. in Barcelona) its latest iPhone application, "Let's Pizza". Let's Pizza is the first and only iPhone application which transforms your iPhone into a traditional pizzeria, allowing to prepare and eat a virtual pizza step-by-step. It allows choosing your preferred ingredients, cooking and eating the virtual Pizza. It's very easy, very funny and delicious... and also really fat-free! When the Pizza is finally cooked just touch a pizza slice to grab it, then bring your iPhone towards your mouth to "eat" your favorite and fat-free pizza slice. [Source]

Domo arigato, Mr. Roberto!

When can we expect your charcuterie engine to show up at the food court?

There was an episode on Strangers with Candy where they had a vending machine in their school that dispensed baby back ribs.

Now that's a vending machine.

Zibbs, Arundathi, Bob
This is just between us so don't let it get around. I'm secretly working with a foreign government that wants to develop a Bouillabaisse vending machine.
