Seems there’s a new vending machine being tested in Europe that makes pizza by hand…er, sprocket. It kneads and rolls the dough, adds toppings and bakes it — all while you watch. Sounds really fun, actually. I’d love to see one. Of course the real pizza makers in Italy aren’t terribly impressed. I like this quote especially:
“This machine is a toy,” Pino Morelli of the Association of Italian Pizzerias said. “Perhaps it will find a niche overseas, but Italians are born with pizza: their mothers feed it to them as babies. They understand it.”
Hmm…overseas. I wonder where he means, exactly?
