7-year-old Pizza Tossing Prodigy
7-year-old Michael Testa is now a pizza-tossing pro after growing up in his father’s pizzeria in Jersey City.
His dad Carmine (of the Carmine Pizza Factory) is proud of his son’s ability. “He’s an exceptional kid. If he can see it, he can pretty much do it. Pretty much my whole life of 20 years of doing it, and he was able to pick up in about two weeks of practicing.”
His boys, Michael and 5-year-old Nicholas visit the restaurant as part of their Sunday routine. “They really show an interest in what I do,” Carmine adds. “Michael is hands on, helping my pizza guy, helping my cook, restocking the soda machine.”
So what does Michael want to be when he grows up? He is interested in two things: playing football and opening his pizzeria.
