Mister Rogers arrives with a pizza cutter which he describes before taking to the kitchen for a demonstration. Using an empty pizza pan to pretend, Mister Rogers cuts an imaginary pizza. He also uses the pan to show a trick he learned from a friend.

At Brockett's Bakery, Mister Rogers meets Joe Sabatini and his son Gino who are making pizzas. Everyone takes a turn spreading the dough as Mr. Sabatini and his son demonstrate the pizza-making process from beginning to end. Mr. Sabatini cuts a finished pizza as Audrey Roth steps in and mentions that she is helping out at the bakery's soda shop on her day off from her cleaning business.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers uses his own pizza cutter to cut a piece of pizza he took from the bakery. Cutting the piece in half, he now has a piece for each of his sons. Remembering how Mr. Sabatini tossed the pizza dough in the air, Mister Rogers sings You've Got To Do It.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Miss Paulificate has tossed a pizza in the air but it has not come down. When the pizza does come down, a note from the Owl Correspondence School is attached. The OCS challenges X to count to ten by twos -- a test he easily passes after having practiced many times before. Together, Miss Paulificate and Bob Dog sing I'm Proud of You.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings Tree Tree Tree.


According to Miss Paulificate, the note from the OCS was delivered by P.P.P. -- Pizza Parcel Post.
