Máka Mia Pizza® shop, Ball State University

Ball State University Dining has announced the opening of Máka Mia Pizza®, a new robotic pizza shop located in the Jo Ann Gora Student Recreation and Wellness Center. With this innovative dining option—available now—students can buy a fresh pizza that is prepared and cooked in just 3 ½ minutes.

“The new Máka Mia Pizza® robotic machine is one example of Ball State University Dining’s commitment to providing the campus community with exciting new opportunities,” said Karen Adkins, senior director of auxiliaries for university food, beverage, conference services, and special events. “We are pleased to partner with Máka Mia to bring a great product to the University.”

The Máka Mia Pizza robot can prepare 12 different pizza styles, including pepperoni, sausage, cheese, veggie, supreme, and cauliflower crust options starting at just $12.50. The shop also sells breakfast pizzas, giant cookies, and pretzel bites with cheese. Students can purchase ready-to-eat pizzas or take-and-bake refrigerated pizzas to enjoy later.

This new dining option is located in the second-floor lounge in the Jo Ann Gora Student Recreation and Wellness Center and is available during regular operating hours. Máka Mia Pizza accepts Dining Plus, Dining Cash, Cardinal Cash, and credit/debit cards.

To celebrate this new dining option, Dining Services staff will be distributing free pizza samples on National Pizza Day—Friday, Feb. 9, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and 3-5 p.m.
