Have you always wanted to learn how to make (dough, sauce, assemble & bake) New Haven Style Pizza?
We are New Haven Style Pizza Making Experts.

Gluten Free Classes can be added to any option as well.
This class will show you how to make the perfect New Haven style pizza right in the comfort of your home or our wood fired oven in New Haven. We also do Ooni (or equivalent portable oven), Wood Fired Oven and standard gas/electric home oven training as well.
Learn Style Classes
I will teach you how to make the dough (you get the recipe and what I have create called a “cheat cup”), 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. I also will teach you some history of New Haven pizza from lingo, fun facts, and tips and tricks. This class is packed with apizza value!
Make Style Classes
I also offer a class that allows people to simply make a bunch of pizzas for fun. ZERO instruction other than assembling the pizza. This is an option for people who don’t want to learn how to make the dough, sauce, stretch, assemble and just want to have fun make a pizza once in their lifetime.
