Swoosh!!Swoosh!! I watched intently as my dad threw the pizza dough up into the air and caught it again. My sister and I loved to watch my dad do this. My dad told us that he used to work at a pizza shop where he learned to do this.
When my dad was done with the dough I took the oil from the shelf and oiled the big black pizza pan. My dad then set the dough on the pan. My dad’s favorite sauce to use on his pizza is rage because it is very yummy and it is cheap. My dad then put the grated American cheese over the bright red sauce. The only thing left to do now was to wait for the pizza to cook which was 20 minutes. So me, my sister, and my dad decided to watch the Atlanta Braves play, our favorite baseball team. As we watched the game we could smell the sweet cheese cooking. It made my mouth water. There was five minutes left till the pizza was done. So my sister and I got out all the silverware and poured us all a glass of milk. Just then the timer went off. I grabbed the cooking gloves and pulled out the steaming pizza. It filled the house with smells of cheese and dough.
My sister and I watched as my dad cut the pizza into eight even slices. As I pulled off a piece to put on my paper the gooey cheese stuck to the pan and steam rolled off. I tried to take a bite but it burned my mouth so I drank some milk and waited for my piece to cool. It felt good to finally sit down and have dinner with the family again after a long day.
