The pizza vending machine boasts “fresh out of the oven” pizza.

The fresh-made pizza smell that floats from the machine reportedly attracts crowds to the area. Not surprisingly, the pizza vending machine quickly garnered a lot of attention from curious buyers.

Ording a pizza is quite easy. Just choose from the selection, Neapolitan-style Margherita or Quattro Formaggio pizza, pay for it on the slot, wait for five minutes, and that’s it. The pizza will then be dispensed in a box, complete with a palstic bag and pizza cutter.

In just five minutes, you can enjoy your pizza.

The unique concept makes the pizza vending machine a total hit. Pizza Self also happens to be conveniently located in front of a video store. Delicious or not, the unique style is enough to try it out.

Customers took to Twitter to share their pizza vending machine experience. One said, “ It has blue cheese on it! It’s pretty legit!” and they also added that the pizza “betrayed their expectations in a good way.”

Despite the nearby Domino’s and Pizza Hut locations, people are still drawn to Pizza Self because it offers a much different experience.
