OSU has installed its first “Pizza ATM” on campus, loaded with as many as 70 pizzas at a time.
Here’s how it works: Pizzas pre-made in a neighboring kitchen are stored in a refrigeration unit inside the Pizza ATM. When a pizza is ordered, the machine automatically moves the pie to an oven inside the ATM. The pizza is baked until the crust is crispy and the cheese is melted, typically in three to four minutes.
The pizzas currently come with cheese or pepperoni toppings, but more options are expected in the future.
A 10-inch pizza costs $8.
The new machine was created by the Cincinnati based company, Pizza ATM, CBS affiliate WBNS reports.
It has already proved popular at Xavier University and Case Western Reserve University. There are already 500 machines successfully operating in France and other parts of Europe, as well.
