Is This The Future of Pizza Making?

Pizza MakingPizza has been made by hand for years. But what if pizza was made… by robots? There’s a tech startup in Silicon Valley, California, that’s called “Zume” and they’ve built a robotic pizza-making operation that’s almost totally automated. While a human still preps the dough, the machine takes over to flatten it out. Then, the flattened dough goes down a conveyor belt where a robot applies sauce and another robot spreads the sauce around. Later on, some humans put on cheese and various toppings. Then a robotic arm puts the concoction into a tray. Interestingly, these machine-created pizzas aren’t cooked on-site. Instead, they’re made with the intent that a delivery truck brings them wherever they need to go.

Could this revolutionize the way pizzas are made? Yes. According to one of the co-founders of Zume, “We’re going to be the Amazon of food.” Basically, the company wants to cut costs concerning human labor such that these robotic/machine-made pizzas are very, very profitable.

Zume represents the Silicon Valley of today, whereas it involves automation, the on-demand economy, and something people love: pizza. Like Uber changed the taxi world and Airbnb changed the hotel world and Napster/iTunes changed the music world, could Zume change the pizza world? Time will tell.

And that is what makes pizza great – because pizza can be crafted and baked in a myriad of ways, to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters.

 

But why does pizza taste so good to so many for as long as it has? It’s science of course!

 

What’s The Science Behind Pizza’s Deliciousness?

Tomato sauce, cheese, beef, pork, chicken, and fish – all typical ingredients that make up your pizza – are all packed with glutamate and umami.

 

These toppings attack the taste buds enhancing the flavor, making it addicting and us wanting more. You could say that the glutamate is the perfect marketer for pizza and its deliciousness.
