All the Ways to Make Pizza Delivery Even Easier

But one can always be lazier. At least that’s our takeaway from the proliferation of new pizza delivery innovations that seek to make ordering pizza an even less work-intensive endeavor.
Consider Push for Pizza, an app that summons pizza at the mere touch of a smartphone button. Sure, the user has to take two minutes to configure the settings—simply choose a pizza place and enter credit card information and an address—but that’s about as complicated as Push for Pizza gets. Even the options are limited: Just cheese or pepperoni. Super simple.
The app was invented by five teenagers who sought a solution for the age-old dilemma: “I want pizza, but I don’t want to order a pizza.” (The whole ad is pretty funny and worth a viewing):
In an Gchat interview with Valleywag, co-founder Max Hellerstein wrote that given the simplicity of Push for Pizza, “ordering from Seamless is now going to feel like planning a wedding … It knows what you like to tip, what you like to order, and where you are.” He continued, “We just hate the idea of going through menus.”
And the app works. Slate tried it on Tuesday, to great success. “There was no fuss, just pizza,” Slate writer Jeffrey Bloomer confirmed.
