Sounds like the crust is unleavened, so I wouldn't worry about it taking jobs from pizzerias just yet.

And while I could imagine a hypothetical pizza-making machine of the future that would proof a yeasted dough in advance and then bake it on demand, there's no practical way to reach the temperatures of a commercial pizza oven from a standard electrical outlet.

In the mid seventies I used to hang out at a gas station where they made these, clipped to a close line in a burner ring It was 120v I think this is hot enough for pizza

Saw one in Île de Ré, France a couple of years ago. Never got to see if it worked because I couldn't understand the instructions.

There were instructions on the wall. Just noticed the screen was in English.

Doh.

I'm okay pizza out of a vending machine.  I'm looking forward to the day when I can just download a pizza.

I'll try anything once. My first instinct, though, is this is one of the quickest ways to fark up pizza.

The McFlys at the time were living in a lousy neighborhood. They only had access to lousy pizza.

The locations wouldn't have conventional 230V outlets anyway.

I wonder about the 3 minute time, but I have seen them on YouTube, and the results looked fine.

/I tried a French fry vending machine once. It was OK, but it was placed at the railway station that also had a McD, so well. Noone used outside of curiosity I assume, since it was removed after a few months. It cost more than McD even.

So the writer didn't actually try one to see if it was cooked correctly and tasted good?

The standard voltage In Rome is 230 volts.

Don't be like most engineers I know. Uses to build bio banking systems and the engineer forgot us the US of A use 60 hz where the customer used 50 Hz.

Those poor compressors.

Though I'm always confused why we gave the world the power grid and no one conformed to our standards.

Sadly that looks better than the stuff you would get from the pizza hut vendor on campus when I was in grad school. These days though I have better options.

Yes there is.  Insulation and time.  It's a simple matter of thermodynamics

Add some thermal mass, and keep it perpetually heated, and you're not necessarily efficient, but it can be done.

The other option is to have a tank of propane for the pre-heating, but switch to an electric broiler for the actual cooking.  (To avoid the moisture issues)

As for the crust, it could be similar to the 'rising crust' from Digiorno, there it has some double acting baking powder in it, so it'll get a bit of a boost when heat is applied 

And for the people who say this'll take jobs... this could've saved jobs in places that had rules during lockdown that bars had to serve food to be able to stay open.  (Although, microwave pizzas would've done the same thing)
