Vending machine serves up a 10-inch personal pizza in under three minutes.

The Netherlands-based A1 Concepts has created a vending machine called Let's Pizza that mixes the dough, adds tomato sauce and cheese and bakes the pizza using only robotic parts.

Customers can watch as the dough is mixed, kneaded and rolled before being squirted with saurce and finally cooked to perfection, reported NPR.

The company purports that the pizza is "untouched by human hands" - a marketing slogan that can only be described as curious.

According to Glamour, the pizza costs just under six dollars.

The machine has already made a debut in Italy and is said to be coming to the United States soon enough.

In an interview with Pizza Marketplace, A1 CEO, Ronald Rammers, said: "Once people discover the quality of the pizza and the convenience and, indeed, the speed factor, we expect to have competition in our favor."

He added: "Let's Pizza is a huge success in Europe and especially in Italy. That was proof for us that we have a very good pizza."
