Pizza Making To Benefit Visually Impaired Students
Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, famous for its award-winning, hand-tossed, coal-fired brick oven pizzas and calzones, partnered with Nevada Blind Children’s Foundation on Wednesday, June 24 for a summer day camp pizza making class for students with visual imparities or blindness. Twelve students ranging from six to fifteen years old spent a morning learning the history of pizza, the layout of a Grimaldi’s Pizzeria restaurant and the hands-on steps it takes to build a one-of-a-kind pie.
Grimaldi’s employees guided short lessons covering the basics of how to make a pizza. The students learned how to stretch the pizza dough, appropriate use and need of flour, and the placement of cheese, toppings and sauce. After learning the pizza-making process, children enjoyed lunch featuring their own personal creations.
