Good news, humans. The robots have finally tired of force-feeding us raw tomatoes while making us run grueling marathons:

Now they've turned their focus to making us delicious pizza.

Er, what?

Here's the long and short of it: Researchers have taught these "cognition-enabled autonomous service bots" to surf the web looking for recipes to prepare. The robots are complying. For the moment.

And while they're complying, here are some pizzas that we'd love our robot friends to discover online, prepare, and feed us.

We'll start with an easy one. Pesto on pita with cheese and sliced tomatoes. No pressure, robots, but our vacuum cleaner could make this.

It's a cupcake, it's a pizza, it's both at once. How's that compute for ya?

Now it's getting serious. Lots of sliced veggies and homemade crust. Good luck.

If you can't make New York-style pizza, you're not a pizza-making robot.
