    Pizzabox will make an early 2015 debut, probably in West Hollywood.

    A SoCaler secrets many an opinion, including but not limited to the following: How one might efficiently make it from Hollywood Boulevard and Gower Street to LAX on a Friday at 5:15 p.m. without using a freeway, where to park when the Third Street Promenade is hosting a big event, and the best burrito in town.

    That last category is far too broad, of course, because many a local has a favorite breakfast burrito, a favorite vegetarian, and one involving carne asada. We know, we know; tip of the iceburg.

    Then along came the Burritobox, in early 2014, to expedite all of our burrito-based needs. Need something spicy, with beans, fast? The orange kiosk, which debuted in a pair of West Hollywood gas stations, could deliver.

    But Burritobox? You're getting a new savory sibling, one that'll address the pizza needs of those on the go. Pizzabox is ready for its melty, cheesy bow at the start of 2015.

    How it works? Order a 10" pie, mill near the kiosk for 90 seconds while it bakes, and presto: You've been pizza'd in a lickety-split amount of time.

    Yep, this one is again from Box Brands, the company behind Burritobox, and, again, it'll make a gas station appearance to kick things off (the company is "eyeing West Hollywood for the first location").

    Want an early look at Pizzabox? The company shared a first photograph on Instagram.

    The only argument not to start, among your friends, is which is superior: pizza or burritos. Sure, pit margherita pizza against a pepper-and-bean burrito, is you want to get specific in your foodly battles.

    But titan-to-titan? Pizza vs. burrito? Pizzabox vs. Burritobox? We do believe that we can all get along, and love both, when it comes to the two belly-filling stalwarts of quick cuisine.
