Arizona Girl Scouts Make Brooklyn Pizza From Brooklyn Water

In Mesa, AZ, The East Valley Tribune reports that an Ahwatukee Foothills Girl Scout troop got a unique opportunity to work on their cooking badges. The group of seven girls, who all attend Horizon Community Learning Center, got an up-close look at how authentic Brooklyn-style pizza is made when they visited Vincent's Famous Pizza and Restaurant.

The girls saw how Vincent's owner Lee Marino creates the dough and mixes his special ingredients. After it was finished, each of the troop members hand-pounded the dough, added tomato sauce and toppings to create their own pizza. Vincent's Famous Pizza is known for its authenticity and sounds totally awesome. All recipes come from a family cook book, and to get that real Brooklyn pizza taste, they have installed New York's Finest water filtration system - which means someone studied the chemicals to create a filter that makes regular tap water identical to what someone would find in Brooklyn.

As a resident of Brooklyn, I can definitely vouch for the quality of both the pizza and the water!
