Pazzi, the first fully robotic pizzeria, has opened in Paris' Beaubourg neighborhood after eight years of development and refinement.

Pazzi's robot staff oversees all aspects of pizza preparation, from taking orders to prepping the dough to boxing the pizzas.

Pazzi’s Thierry Graffagnino said because pizza dough is particularly challenging to handle, "We had to give the robot the means to make these corrections on its own, and some pizza makers can't even manage that themselves."

Said Pazzi robot co-inventor Sebastien Roverso, "We are in a very fast process, with a perfect control of time, a control of quality since we have a constancy offered by robotics, and then an environment that is quite cool and relaxed. The idea is also to spend a few pleasant minutes watching the robot while you wait for your pizza to be made."
