Pizza vending machines will soon be a reality nationwide

Would you rather wait for the deliveryman to drive across town with your once hot pizza or snatch it out of a vending machine after its heated for several minutes and delivered to you immediately?

The insanely popular Pizza ATM first came to life this summer at Ohio's Xavier University, answering the prayers of college students everywhere.

Until now, it had been the the first Pizza ATM in North America.

But thanks to one company in Florida, we could see more pizza vending machines nationwide.

Pizza Touch, an Orlando-based business plans to roll out more than 100 pizza dispensers in Central Florida, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Since the 'za takes only two minutes to heat up, they're targeting places where people need a meal in a pinch, like college campuses, hospitals, hotels and malls.

Pizza Touch plans to expand its options but for now, you can get cheese, margherita, and mushroom and pepper pizzas.

Although a novelty in the U.S., pizza vending machines are nothing new around the world.

They're prominent in Singapore, and the Pizza Touch company has roots in both Portugal and Italy.

But if you're getting pizza out of a dispenser in Italy, the home of pizza, you may need to have your taste buds re-evaluated and save those Euros.
