March 6 (UPI) -- A pair of New Jersey pizza-tossing prodigies are going viral thanks to a video of them showing off their skills with a practice dough at their father's pizzeria.

Carmine Testa posted a video to the official Facebook page for his sons, Michael and Nicholas, showing the boys tossing a rubber practice pizza dough back and forth to demonstrate their pie-slinging skills.

Testa said Michael, 12, and Nicholas, 10, have shown off their skills on TV shows including Rachel Ray, The Chew, Dr. Oz. Hell's Kitchen with Gordon Ramsey, the Steve Harvey Show, and Access Hollywood Live, but the video he recorded in February at his Jersey City restaurant, Carmine's Pizza Factory, is their first viral hit.

Testa said a 2012 article in the Jersey Journal got Michael started on the road to celebrity.

"Michael was 7 at the time and The Jersey Journal article got picked up by the Huffington Post and then it just took off from there," Testa told NJ.com. "There has been one appearance after another. Nicholas was getting tired of sitting in the audience and watching his brother, so he started practicing."
