TheGuardian – Massimo Bucolo bravely dared to go where nobody else had gone before in order to take a slice of Italy’s competitive pizza market: a 24-hour vending machine that dishes out freshly baked pizza in three minutes.

Located in a booth on Via Catania, close to Piazza Bologna in Rome, Mr Go Pizza offers up four varieties, including the classic margherita invented in Naples in 1889, each costing between €4.50 and €6. Customers can watch through a small glass window as the vending machine kneads and tops the dough.

Rome debuts hot pizza vending machine

CNN – Raffaele Esposito, the 19th century Neapolitan credited with inventing Italy’s most famous type of pizza, may be turning in his grave: Rome has a new vending machine which slides out freshly cooked pizzas in just three minutes.

Buyers using the flaming red “Mr. Go Pizza” machine can choose from four different kinds of pizzas costing from 4.50 to 6 euros ($5.20–$7.20). The machine kneads and tops the dough and customers can watch the pizza cook behind a small glass window.Reviews by customers on Thursday of the machine, one of the first in Rome, ranged from “acceptable if you’re in a hurry” to outright horror.”It looks good but it is much smaller than in a restaurant and there is less topping,” said Claudio Zampiga, a pensioner.
