What you'll learn in this pizza making class:

Part of our mission at NAPCA is showing the world the different styles of Italian and American pizzas one pie at a time. Let’s start the year with one of the pizzas that started it all: the Neapolitan. Each month we’ll focus on a new style focus with one Italian and one American. 

This hands-on class geared for home pizza-makers. You’ll have a chance to see the difference between using a traditional wood fired oven and what measures you can take to make this in your home oven or a specialty counter top version.

We’ll talk equipment you’ll need,  from your flour and tomato source, dough-making, an emphasis on shaping and hand-stretching, sauce and toppings  (vegetarians and omnivores), baking and using a traditional wood-fired oven, home oven and also the Breville Pizzaiololo – the first

Menu

  • Traditional Hand Tossed NY style pizza
  • Build your own

 What To Expect: Hands On Pizza Class 

  • You will work with other students in small groups – learning to make dough from scratch by hand in a fun, hands-on environment led by our Pizzaiolo.
  • Work from a classic recipe for authentic Neapolitan pizza taught in the tradition of the STG (Specialita tradizionale garanita)
  • We will move from our classroom kitchen to the oven room to stretch dough by hand – top and learn to use neapolitan pizza peels
  • Classes are roughly 2 1/2 hours, unless otherwise noted above, and each student will enjoy a full meal of what you created in class
  • Wine, beer and Soft drinks are for sale (sorry, no BYOB)
