Private Event: Four Corners Property Trust Pizza Romana Party

December 13, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm


Welcome team members of Four Corners Property Trust to a hands-on pizza making with Chef Michael Kalanty. Fresh from his visit to Rome, Michael is excited to share principals and techniques he has learned firsthand with a style of Pizza making that is truly one of a kind. Whether you’ve made pizzas at home or are brand new, this will be a fun and immersive class to get you slingin’ artisan style pizzas like a pro! Class will conclude with pizza and salad, and students will take home pizza and fresh dough to try their new skills at home!

What You’ll Practice

Both styles of Roman pies:

  • Pizza alla Pala–rectangular and thin, slid directly onto the oven deck from a flat board or “pala”.
  • Pizza Romana-baked in a heavy metal pan for crunchy sides and bottom with a thicker, tender interior.

Plus General Principles to make all your baking better:

  • Hand-mixing techniques for tender crusts
  • Focus on dough proofing, handling and shaping
  • Techniques to get the crust you want
