Leslieville’s pizza game is on point. We’ve got old school, handcrafted, deep-dish, Neapolitan, Roman-style — heck, even Detroit-style. And now we can add… robot pizza.

Just launched in the east end, PizzaForno is a vending machine/robot/computer/pizzeria hybrid that pumps out fresh pizzas 24/7 at the push of a button.

What a time to be alive.

Robotic arms take the pie from the fridge to an oven where it’s baked at super-high temperatures, boxed and served from a slot — all in under three minutes.

The 12-inch pizzas are pre-made by hand with an approach that includes a romana crust, locally sourced ingredients that are said to be natural and fresh, as well as quality cream-based and tomato sauces. There are four different types to choose from: BBQ chicken, honey with goat cheese, mozzarella cheese, and of course, pepperoni. 

Prices range from $11 to $14 and include tax.

The automated pizza concept, launched in Toronto late last year with three machines, is quickly expanding with another 10 slated to open across the GTA.

Next time you’re foraging for food, you’ve now got the choice for pizza with a side of humans or bots.

PizzaForno is now open at 629 Eastern Ave. Check out for more information.
