Participating in the BOOK IT! program, which apparently still exists. The program offered free pizza by reading books. Each student was given an oversized button with five to six blank star-shaped spaces. Each book we read would earn us a star sticker that we could stick to our button. We’re not talking about the book. Crime and Punishment and Moby Dick, of course. We’re talking Amelia Bedelia and Freckle Juice—books we’d be reading anyway, even if there weren’t free food involved.
So we’d read like mad in anticipation of our free personal pan pizza from the local Pizza Hut. On the day of redemption, we’d turn in that button at the pizza counter feeling like kings. The little round pizza would come out steaming hot,And it tasted better than any pizza we had ever had before, because we knew we earned it.
If you are a fan of Sicilian pizza, check these out. They were delicious and the texture was great. I gave them 4.5 stars. Sonia will award them a 4.
Final verdict: 8.5 out 10.
