Home Oven Detroit Pan Pizza Intensive

After many requests – we are offering a new 4 hour class that teaches you how to make a really delicious pizza  for a crowd—in your home oven. This Detroit Pan Pizza is crispy on the outside and delightfully fluffy on the inside. We will make the pizza dough from scratch and, while the dough is resting, we will make the best meatballs, red sauce and pesto.

Students will receive lots of one-on-one instruction and have the opportunity to create both a vegetarian pizza and one which features the best pepperoni and sopresssata.  

Students are welcome to BYOB.
