"....That's amore!"

I was always told that making Neapolitan-style pizza at home was impossible. So years ago, I accepted the challenge and after multiple tests have found a formula for a crusty pie that’s almost as good as one from a wood-fired oven.

 

This class is 100% hands-on and you will be learning all the steps needed to make the dough and prepare a sauce for the following items : Pizza Napoletana & Pizza Romana

Good olive oil comes in many different varieties, flavors and hues. So how do we know which one to pick?
