First-grade Daisy Troop #2032 recently spent an afternoon at Cold Spring Pizza learning all about what makes a pizza parlor tick. Owner Mike Procopio enchanted the girls teaching them about all of the things that could be made with pizza dough.

They got a tour of the pizza parlor and made bread, zeppoles and a pizza of their own. They helped make each item and watched in awe as Procopio twirled and threw the pizza dough high above his head. They ate together and then each girl got a chance to pick out her favorite ice cream flavor and enjoy a cone.

For some girls it was the first time they had ever touched pizza dough and had a chance to make anything with it. They listened attentively as they learned about how to run a pizza business and of course enjoyed the pizza they all helped to make. Thank you, Cold Spring Pizza, for a great afternoon!
