Pizza Party

Nanzaro’s class is having a Pizza Party just prior to the Winter break. This is another fun project for the class. The students got to make pizza all by themselves. The class is divided in groups of five and they made the pizza from scratch, from making the dough and choosing their own toppings.

The class had so much fun doing this project. It’s the best pizza they ever had because of their labour of love.
