A pizza ATM machine has arrived at Case Western Reserve University's campus. The Paline machines already popular across Europe have been slow to come to America, and this machine is only the second in the country.

While the pizzas are meant for the students' enjoyment, visitors are more than welcome to try out the innovative contraption at the university's think[box] building.

The whole cooking process isn't as scary as you may think, as the pizzas, which come in cheese, veggie or pepperoni, are assembled fresh in the campus kitchens before being placed into the machine. A user only needs to choose a flavor and the machine goes to work, taking the selected pre-made pie, cooking it up in an 435 degree oven and placing it in a box.

In mere minutes, the pizza comes out hot, fresh, and by all accounts, delicious.

The first machine opened last year at Xavier University in Cincinnati.
