Photograph article dated August 12, 1964 partially reads, "Now watch girls,' said Charles Monteleone, 'this is the way it's done.' Four pairs of eyes watched the pizza fly through the air as Monteleone showed Woodland Hills Junior Woman's Club members Joan White, Jean Depew, Sally Yarnelle and Gwen Monteleone how the pros make good light pizza. Gwen coaxed her husband into cooking all the pizza for the club's 'Pizza Party' at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Monteleone's home. The dinner and dancing party is a fund raising project given for members and their husbands. Dinner consisting of pizza and a tossed green salad will be sold and draft beer and wine will be available as the proper accompaniment for an Italian dinner." Photograph caption reads, "Charles Monteleone, left photo, watches members of the Woodland Hills Junior Woman's Club eat hot baked pizza. From left are Sally Yarnelle, Joan Campbell and Jean Depew. Chef Monteleone, center photo, sprinkles grated Italian cheese on pizza that is ready for the oven. At right he tosses pizza high." See images 00154851 through 00154854 for all photos in this series.
