The Italian Kitchen – The Pizza Workshop

Everyone loves pizza and some of the best can be made at home. Stretch some pizza dough and your imagination as Italian Expert, Iole Aguero Limonciello, guides you through each step of making amazing pizzas, starting with an easy, but authentic, pizza dough.  In this hands-on class, you will learn how to shape dough into a round, the best material on which to cook your pizza and the ideal temperature to get a puffy, golden crust and perfectly melted cheese on top. You will not only take away the know-how to recreate these tasty pies, but the dough and recipes, too.  You’ll be greeted with Rosemary Focaccia and then get your hands busy making the dough for 3 different pizzas:

  • Margherita Pizza
  • Roasted Vegetable Pizza with Eggplant, Zucchini, Onions, Red Peppers, Mushrooms, Artichokes, Kalamata Olives, Mama Lill’s and Goat Cheese (A surprise favorite!)
  • Sausage, Red Onion, Mushroom Pizza with Mozzarella

Take home what you don’t eat including the dough you made, to make or freeze, for future pizza nights at home!
