The 1964-1965 New York World's Fair

Mastro Pizza

At this counter restaurant, six varieties of pizza are served, instructors demonstrate pizza-making and the customers are encouraged to try their own hand at tossing those whirling disks of dough in the air. Decorated with displays of cheese, tomatoes and other pizza ingredients, the counter also sells soft drinks and beer.
