NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – It takes some serious skills to make a pizza, but a local 7-year-old is already doing it like a pro.

Michael Testa’s pizza hurling skills first became apparent to the world in a YouTube video, which has racked up more than 160,000 views.

The video is set to the tune of Maroon 5′s “Moves Like Jagger.” We don’t know if Mick Jagger ever tossed a pizza, but Michael definitely has some impressive moves.

Carmine and Michael stopped by the CBS 2 studios Tuesday.

Michael says he picked up his tossing skills in just two months. His big secret?

“Twist your wrist,” he said.
