Pizza from scratch may seem like a daunting task, but it's not as hard as you think! In this class you'll make your own pizza dough, neapolitan pizza sauce, and you'll even pull your own mozzarella from curds! We'll also have a few toppings for you to choose from, and then its into the oven to cook our pizzas on a stone (the best way). Our chef will make a big Caesar salad to be served family style. This class runs a little different than our usual class, so please read the description before signing up.
Chef will lead you through mixing and kneading your own batch of pizza dough, but the best pizza dough needs some time to build a great flavor, so we'll make a big batch of dough ahead of time and it will be ready for you to use for class. The dough that you mix and knead yourself will be wrapped up and you can take it home to make more pizza for your family or friends!
We think neapolitan pizza sauce is the best there is, and luckily its just about the easiest, as long as you have excellent ingredients. It doesn't require any cooking, but it takes some skill to balance the flavors to perfection. Chef can help with that. You'll also pull your own mozzarella. We'll provide the curds and you just need to prepare your hands for some high temp pulling! Pulling cheese requires really hot water (160 degrees F), but its worth it in the end as you get the freshest cheese possible to make this pizza perfect.
Here's the part that's really different... because we have two ovens, and we want your pizzas to be cooked properly, we can only do one pizza per oven at a time. Because of this, baking of the pizza will be staggered, and there will be some down time while waiting for your turn to put yours in the oven. We will have the oven cranked up as hot as it goes, so each pizza should only take 7 or 8 minutes to finish. While you're waiting, you can eat your salad, drink some wine, and socialize.
