What you'll learn in this pizza making class:

Ok, we heard you. You make a “pretty” good dough, but it could be better. You’re not totally sure how to get it to the next level and you don’t think you can commit to the full 1 day class, just yet.

Look no further… this is the class for you.

We’ll make dough from start to finish, we’ll talk about flour, the yeast you’re using – water temperature – you get it, full on nerd out on pizza.

Then we’ll stretch some dough – talk about rolling vs hand stretch – top, bake and eat – repeat.


  • Classic Margherita Pizza
  • Quattro Formaggi (4 cheese – shredded mozzarella, gorgonzola, ricotta and Parmesan)
  • Prosciutto, fig & Asiago

Techniques you’ll learn

  • Working with a pizza stone
  • Hand stretching vs rolling dough
  • Selecting canned tomatoes
  • Selecting cheese
  • Sourcing flour
  • Choosing a yeast
  • Topping a pizza
  • Baking a pizza in a home oven

What To Expect: Hands On Pizza Class

You will work in groups 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 Italian pizza
  • Classes are roughly 3 hours, unless otherwise noted above, and each student will enjoy a full meal of what you created in class
  • This class will be conducted in our demonstration kitchen and will use pizza stones
  • Wine, beer and Soft drinks are for sale (sorry, no BYOB)

If you have any dietary restrictions or allergies, that we can work around we will PLEASE add any important information to your order notes during registration!

We can not make any substitutions the day of class. Thank you for understanding.

Substitutions and Class Format

We reserve the right to substitute ingredients, menus, recipes, chefs and instructors. Unless noted otherwise, all of our classes are hands-on and participatory in style. Our class size is limited and classes are structured to allow each student the opportunity to work closely with the chef in the preparation of dishes and to observe, up-close, the ingredients, tools and techniques used in the making of all dishes. The exception to the hands-on format are classes labeled as “Demonstration” or “Demo” or “Lecture”.
