Youngsters Conquer the Culinary Arts as Pizza Chefs

Students in Antoinette Hatzopoulos's first-grade class at Gribbin Elementary School recently enjoyed a hands-on experience, as one of the class fathers taught the students how to prepare personal pizzas. Mario Bencivenni, proprietor of Delicious Pizzeria in Glen Cove, supplied the dough, sauce and cheese and volunteered his time to work with students on stretching out the dough, and adding the sauce, cheese, seasonings, and toppings. Every child brought his/her own pizza home to bake. Special thanks to Mr. Bencivenni and his son Saverio!
