The Pizza ATM is making its American debut at Xavier University in Cincinnati. 

The ATM dispenses piping hot pizza instead of $20 bills, slicing the number of steps between students and the moment they satisfy their cheesy cravings.

Xavier partnered with France-based Paline company to make the idea a reality. The pizza machine is set up in one of Xavier's residence hall lobbies and open 24/7.

Xavier's Pizza ATM is stocked with up to 70 pizzas at a time. Each is ready in about three minutes.

"It is the best pizza I've ever had, and I hate to admit that as a New Yorker," said Jennifer Paiotti, marketing director of Xavier University's auxiliary services.
