| || Carmine Testa, the owner of a Pizza factory in New Jersey, posted a video of his little son tossing pizza dough last March. "I first posted it to kind of brag to a couple friends – we all own pizzerias – so I wanted to say, 'Look what my son can do!'" he said.|
In his surprise, not only has the video become an internet sensation but also, several publications had come to feature his son, including “Good Morning New York.”
Testa says it only took his son two months before he learned an amazing stunt, starting off with ‘throw dough’ and eventually learning to toss it back and forth with beats on the background.
“I bring my sons to work with me on Saturday mornings, and they’ve always taken an interest in what I do,” said Testa. “They used to play with real dough and get it all over the floor, so I decided to buy throw dough. Within a couple days, Michael was pretty good with it. It’s not that I taught him, he kind of just watched me and practiced.” He added.
Michael (Carmine Testa’s son) says it took him 20 minutes to 1 hour of practice every day and aims to be part of pizza-tossing tournaments. The little pro also says he is very much surprised with all the attention he is getting out of the pizza-tossing he makes.
Unfortunately, the little talented pro doesn’t seem to have a career in pizza as his father hopes something different in their future. Though Carmine Testa will support his son in entering competitions, he wants his sons to become a vet or a dentist.
