BREAD MAKING CLASS: Chicago Style Thin Crust Pizza
Chicago is famous for both thick and thin crust pizzas. In this class we will cover making a basic pizza dough, proofing techniques and forming the perfect crust for a Chicago-style thin crust pizza. Once we choose our toppings the pizzas are slid onto a hot stone to bake up crispy and cheesy with a thin crust. Making pizzeria-worthy pizzas is easy and fun for everyone. The key is a good fresh dough, quality ingredients and a hot pizza stone. Attendees can make pizza dough to use that day or take home plenty of flour and yeast to make their dough another day. It's a class- it's a pizza party! I promise to make it fun, educational and delicious.
What you need to bring- A covered bowl for if you choose to make your dough that day or bring home the flour and yeast. Beer. (Make it an *event* !)
What you need to own- a pizza stone
