Created in collaboration with a Bondi start-up called Placer Robotics, ‘Pizzabot’ provides two-topping flavours - pepperoni and Italiana - made with local ingredients and even features a glass-front for customers to watch as their pizza is cooked and packaged before their eyes.
“We are extremely excited by our collaboration with Pizzabot, a true Aussie innovation, to deliver great quality pizza and a unique experience, at the lowest price point,” Huw Longman, director of Aldi Corner Store, told 7 News.
“This collaboration to launch Pizzabot reflects our commitment to delighting our customers with innovation.”
The pizzas are partially cooked in Bondi then chilled in the Pizzabot so they can then be cooked in a matter of minutes.
Pizzabot’s founder and managing director, Matt Lipski, told 7 News: “We use the freshest, highest quality ingredients - including buffalo mozzarella, fresh basil, gourmet salami and 48-hour rise dough.
“Our custom oven, which reaches temperatures as high as a wood-fired oven with digital precision, guarantees the perfect crispness, taste and look of each slice, every time.”
Sadly, there are no current plans to launch Pizzabot in the UK – trip to Australia for a quick pizza, anyone?
