You might be able to 3D print yourself a pizza for dinner very soon
Forget bothering to order a Dominos and actually walking to the door to collect your pizza – 3D printing of your favourite comfort food could be closer than you think. According to Fast Casual, printing pizza could be a reality in the near future.
Executive chef at Ribalta Neapolitan Restaurant Pasquale Cozzolino, and 3D printing company BeeHex, Inc are developing 3-D printed pizzas for the masses. BeeHex is working on printing oven-ready pizzas that will cook in under four minutes, as well as a 3D printing kiosk that can make and bake a pizza every 60 seconds. What a time to be alive.
Imagine the multitude of situations your printable pizza could help you overcome! An easy and delicious dinner when you’re pressed for time? Check. The ultimate dinner party conversation piece? Check. An extra slab of doughy goodness to go round when you realise you were much, much hungrier than you thought? Check, check, check.
“We are excited to be working with such an inventive and forward-thinking company,” said Cozzolino. “I am looking forward to using my experience in the culinary industry to create a pizza that can be 3-D printed without sacrificing quality ingredients and taste.”
While the best ingredients to use are still being hashed out, BeeHex reportedly considered using 80-year-old yeast (sounds delicious). Next on the agenda: 3D printed dips and dough balls, please!
