Forget Pepe's, Sally's, even Lou Malnati's (if you consider that stuff apizza).

    there must be a market for it, or they wouldn't have spent the $ developing the darn thing :-)

    sad but true

      I need Frank Pepe...though honestly, I'd fork out 4 Euros to see this machine in action.    Chris

          I would love one of these in my kitchen!  I would bet my bottom dollar that my grandchildren would become the most popular kids in the neighborhood.  (After all, most of these neighborhood kids  think that  Pizza Hut pizza is real pizza!)

              In the article, the inventor of the pizza making machine, Claudio Torghele, describes the pizza as satisfactory.
              He doesn't say 'good'
              He doesn't say 'very good'
              He doesn't say 'excellent'

                As someone who had Pepe's pizza for the first time within the last month (and went back again a week later on the next trip) and who has just had some Mazzia's pizza in Buffalo, I have trouble imagining that this machine could replicate either experience.  It is an interesting concept, I must admit (whether in a good way or a bad way is yet to be known).  I agree with Chris that I might spend a little money to see the machine in action.

                  I would say that him calling it satisfactory would make it a step above any  USA chain pizza!

                        That thing will be Big in Japan...or just about any Asian country.
                        It may be better than some of the restaurant offerings in those nations.
