 Do you want to learn how to make New Haven Style Pizza in the comfort of your own home? Do you have an electric, gas, wood or BBQ oven? Do you want to learn how to make stuffed breads, calzones, pizza fritta, or even roll-ups?

This class will show you how to make the perfect New Haven style pizza right in the comfort of your home. I will teach you how to make the dough, the sauce, how to assemble the pizza (stretching the dough, adding the cheese and olive oil), and oven tips and tricks such as launching the pizza correctly and how to turn the pizza for an evenly baked crust.
