Looks like the vada pao is all set to get some cheesy competition from thin-crust pizza in Amchi Mumbai very soon!

The Mumbai Mirror reports that IRCTC is planning to install pizza vending machines in 5 of Mumbai's busiest railway stations: Kalyan, Lokmanya Tilak Terminus in Kurla, Mumbai Central, CST and Andheri.

The machine works exactly like an ATM machine. Once you insert a token and select one of the four options of pizza along with the toppings of your preference, the machine will prepare the pizza within 5 minutes. Additionally, it also lets you peer in and watch your pizza being baked and readied.

Here is a video link of a similar vending machine in Sorrento, Italy:

The concept is believed to be a tie up between Yess Pizza and IRCTC. Yess Pizza already have such a machine operational in Mulund.

Talking on behalf of Yess Pizza, Mitesh Thakkar told MM:

"A few days ago, our team visited Kalyan station to look at the proposed spot where the machine can be installed."

The concept sounds interesting. But exactly how someone is going to hold on to a machine for 5 minutes in some of the busiest railway stations of the country remain to be seen.
