What you'll learn in this kids cooking class:

Do you have a kid that is passionate about cooking and baking – and really loves pizza? GREAT! We have the camp for you. Let’s get them in here for a pizza class! This class is designed for all levels – from total beginner who is super freaked out to come in and start this journey to your master chef jr. who watches every cooking show out there. They will all be on the same playing field when they leave and will make some new foodie friends!

In this class Leo Spizzirri – our resident Master Instructor (one of two in the USA) will go over dough basics – tomatoes and sauce – toppings and using an oven then baking.
They will learn about working as a team – sanitation – dough and ingredients

Menu:
  • Day 1 -Introduction to grains – Working with traditional dough – Making Dough -Eating & talking about pizza
  • Day 2 – Preparation of ingredients – making sauce – Stretching dough – topping and baking pizza – Eating & talking about pizza
Important things to note:
  • This class is hands on – with demonstrations from our Pizzaioli
  • Students work side-by-side with other students to prepare each dish from start to finish.
  • We respectfully request any long hair tied back (we provide hair ties just in case) 
  • Please wear closed toe shoes
  • PLEASE ALERT US OF ANY FOOD ALLERGIES – we can accommodate these but need a 24 hour heads up
Substitutions and Class Format

We reserve the right to substitute ingredients, menus, recipes, chefs and instructors. Unless noted otherwise, all of our classes are hands-on and participatory in style. 

Our class size is limited and classes are structured to allow each student the opportunity to work closely with the chef in the preparation of dishes and to observe, up-close, the ingredients, tools and techniques used in the making of all dishes. The exception to the hands-on format are classes labeled as “Demonstration” or “Demo” or “Lecture”.
