If I could give the NAPCA six stars, I would. My wife and I attended the Chicago Pizza class just tonight, and it was well worth the price. Chef Leo Spizzirri taught the class, and he was super engaging and interesting to listen to. You could tell he had a LOT of experience making dough, sauce, and of course pizza. He was patient and had thorough answers to everyone's questions. The facilities themselves were beautiful and state-of-the-art. The front, where the class was held, was inviting and made you feel at home. There were also areas for professional training and for cooking the pizzas in the large ovens you would expect a place like this to have. While making the pizzas was lots of fun, it was even more fun to sit at the counter and enjoy them while taking to Chef Leo and his business partner, Chef Anthony. I learned that they also offer technical classes, like knife skills, and even had a camp for kids during the summer. I would definitely go back for another class and hope to see others in the Western Suburbs take advantage of such a cool, local experience.
