What you'll learn in this pizza making class:

Pizza is one of the world’s greatest foods but also one of the hardest to perfect in a home oven.

In Mastering Pizza, James Beard award-winning chef Marc Vetri tackles the topic with his trademark precision, making perfect pizza available to anyone. The recipes—gleaned from years spent researching recipes in Italy and perfecting them in America—have a variety of base doughs of different hydration levels, which allow home cooks to achieve the same results with a regular kitchen oven as they would with a professional pizza oven.

Mastering Pizza also dives into other fundamentals—pizza stones, baking steels, flour types—to help home cooks find the best tools for getting the ultimate crust, be it airy or crispy. Vetri also offers recipes for popular standards like Margherita and Pepperoni while also featuring unexpected combinations like Butternut Squash with Crispy Sage and Taleggio, Fresh Pears and Guanciale, Sicilian Tuna with Shaved Vidalia Onion, and Crab and Roasted Peppers.

WHAT TO EXPECT: THIS IS A PIZZA DEMO & BOOK SIGNING
  • Marc Vetri & Leo Spizzirri will demonstrate pizza for your home oven
  • 1 book is included in the price of admission!
  • Marc will be signing copies of his new book “Mastering Pizza” after the demo, while we are serving pizzas!
  • Wine and beer will be available for purchase
