New Zealand is set to become the first country in the world to roll out the first of what will be several pizza-making and delivery services, following a $600m investment from the US.
The $1 pie is being delivered from a remote, New Zealand-owned pizza restaurant in the northern town of Coromandel.
It will be the first pizza to be made by the delivery service in the country.
“We are delighted to launch this exciting new service in New Zealand, and it will revolutionise the way Australians enjoy their favourite holiday food,” Coromandal Pizza owner and chef Simon Tabor said.
“It is a testament to the Kiwi food culture that we have found a way to make our food locally, so that people can enjoy it and get on with their lives in New England.”
The restaurant will serve up the $1 pies in a number of flavours including the signature Coromander pizza with sausage, mushroom and onion and the $7,000-a-pop pizza with cheese, mushroom, and onions.
The delivery service will be available for breakfast and lunch on Christmas Day, and again in the early months of 2019, and will also be available to dinner on New Year’s Eve.
The restaurant is expected to open in 2019, with the delivery option rolling out from 2019 to 2020.
The pizza-maker said it would offer its customers a variety of options in the delivery options.
The pizzas will be made in-house at Coromandan, a former steel mill that has been restored to its former glory, with traditional techniques that allow the restaurant to be able to make the pies without the use of meat or milk.
Coromans food is produced in a wood-fired oven.
It takes about 30 hours to make one of the pizzas, but that time is up to the customer.
It’s not a traditional pizza-style pie, but the delivery of the pie will be free.
Tabor told the ABC the idea for the pizza was sparked by his daughter, who had recently left the family home and was planning on returning home.
“She told me that she was going to get married soon and I said to her that I thought that was a really good idea.
I just thought about the people that had left, and I wanted to do something for them.”
Tabor is part of a group of entrepreneurs in New York City who recently launched a delivery service called “Peep Pie”.
The pizza is delivered to an address that can be easily identified and then picked up.
It is also available for $1.25, and the pizza is available to be eaten at home.
Tibera says it was a bit of a surprise to see the New Zealand community embrace the idea.
“I don’t think the concept has ever been really embraced in New New Zealand.
It took me a while to get people excited about it,” he said.
The Coromanans restaurant will not be able use the delivery method because it is still a private business, but will use the pizza-makers services.
Tambouris wife, Coromania, and family members will work as part of the operation, and he hopes it will be a way for New Zealanders to enjoy the traditional New Zealand experience without needing to pay for delivery.
“The idea is for New New Yorkers to have a pizza and be able enjoy it for free,” he told the Australian Financial Press.
“If you have a family member that wants to go out for a night out with friends, that’s really fun, but we think that it’s really good for everyone.”
The New Zealand pizza-brand is set for a launch later this year.
“People are going to want to get their hands on this pizza, and we are really excited about this opportunity,” Tabor added.
“As we are seeing more and more people around the world getting their hands and faces on the pizza, it’s a great opportunity to bring New Zealand to the forefront.”
New Zealand has been hit by a wave of imported pizza from overseas.
New Zealand was ranked sixth out of the 28 countries in the OECD’s “best in class” rankings, but it was overtaken by South Korea in the first quarter of this year, and China by Japan in the second quarter.
